Tethered exclusively to the flagship wallet of the company, the company collaborated with Ledger, a wallet manufacturing company for creating the design of the new hardware wallet. This hardware wallet will work seamlessly with users’ Blockchain Wallet.
Blockchain was launched in August 2011 and ever since then, it has offered a wide range of data services as well as a non-custodial wallet product which has led to the creation of around 29.5 million wallets over the years. Since the Lockbox hardware wallet is fully compatible with the device as well as with the wallet software of Blockchain, it provides dual benefit to the users. It should be noted that Lockbox is not compatible with other platforms of Ledger such as the Ledger Live application.
During the launch, the CEO and co-founder of the company, Peter Smith stated, “We’ve created an elegant software and hardware integration that offers more functionality than previously existed in our space. We’re thrilled to offer the Lockbox to Blockchain users so they can easily manage their funds online and offline seamlessly.”
While highlighting the significance of the best hardware wallet Pascal Gauthier, the President of Ledger explained that cryptocurrency hacks continue to make headlines these days making security a top concern for stakeholders in the virtual space, News Bitcoin reported. Importantly, Lockbox is a FIDO certified device which the users can use as a secondary security key for Google applications, Dropbox, Github, and more.
Using Blockchain Lockbox is very simple. Users do not need to download any software for it as it works seamlessly with users’ Blockchain Wallet and it requires only minimum steps to start, Blockchainreported. Priced at $99.99, the dual-chip architecture of Lockbox guarantees cryptographic protection which makes it easier to store cryptos securely with the private keys protected just behind the secret PIN.
