Spatium partners with CardLab for hardware wallet featuring FPC biometric tech
Cryptocurrency wallet maker Spatium has partnered with CardLab to create and manufacture a new generation of cryptocurrency hardware wallets featuring biometric technology by Fingerprint Cards for secure and private authorization.
CardLab is a Denmark-based manufacturer of electronic smart cards. Its technological innovations include the Snap Switch to turn the card on and off, the biometric reader for fingerprint authorization, the RFID jammer to prevent wireless hacking, and the ability to have a dual dynamic magnetic strip.
According to the announcement, the Cardlab partnership will enable Spatium to manufacture, in Q1 2019, a credit card-shaped hardware wallet with biometric authorization that does not compromise privacy regulations. The wallet can include wireless and contactless NFC/bluetooth connectivity. The wallet will also be able to have additional security services, such as inheritance and plausible denial.
“CardLab’s Electronic Smart Card expertise helps embed Spatium’s unhackable, keyless signing of transactions into a convenient, slim, and ultra-secure credit card-shaped wallet,” said Spatium’s CEO, Geray Yusifov.
“We are very happy to be able to support Spatium’s efforts to create and distribute a cryptocurrency wallet and platform that will make the cryptocurrency and blockchain much safer for users,” added CardLab CEO, Frank Sandeløv. “We believe Spatium will be providing a uniquely secure solution with full privacy protection.”
