Biometric crypto smartcard wallet launches crowdfunding campaign
The secured smartcard-shaped crypto hardware wallet HASHWallet with fingerprint biometrics has launched a crowdfunding campaign on Indiegogo, eSignus announced.
The smartcard was developed by CardLab and eSignus and leverages biometric security sensors from Fingerprint Cards. First announced in March 2020, it is a crypto hard wallet that secures crypto-assets and gives users and investors full control over their assets.
HASHWallet is a non-programmable, environmentally secured hardware wallet that can be used to authenticate or sign a transaction without impersonation risks or key loss. The smartcard prevents loss of private keys, key hacking, keystroke logging and phishing attacks. The private key cannot be lost or stolen because neither by the user nor a third party can extract it, according to the company.
The smartcard uses Bluetooth and NFC to pair with the Manager App and with the Recovery Card for seamless connectivity. Future developments will include third party integrations to facilitate NFC payments.
HASHWallet leverages biometric security authentication through fingerprint readers to provide the highest level of security. It also comes with a recovery card for users to access their funds if the wallet is lost.
The crowdfunding campaign has a flexible goal of just over $75,000, and has been 45 percent fulfilled with 18 days left. No retail packs of HASHWallets have been claimed, but dozens of individual units have been claimed, for shipping estimated in December, 2020.
A few months ago, HASHWallet joined the Arrow Certification Program. The product was endorsed by ArrowGlobal as an outstanding innovative technology in the crypto space, and received the “Arrow Certified Technology” Badge, which confirms it has been reviewed and can be manufactured.
