The traditional crypto miner is always looking at the profitability and specs of an ASIC, FPGA, GPU and CPU mining hardware and after that takes into account other factors that may not be as important. Then there are the non-traditional miners that might be more interested into a cool-looking and easy to use miner that may not be very or profitable at all on daily basis, for people like that the Coinmine might be the perfect solution. A nice looking mining box that runs silent and is easy to connect and operate via your smartphone and it even mines a number of crypto coins as an extra.

The CoinmineOne miner is available for $699 USD, it can mine Bitcoin, Ethereum, Grin and Monero and you can also earn 6.5% APR interest on the crypto in your Coinmine One wallet. With just 160W of average power usage and near silent operation it sure sounds like an interesting device to have if you are from the second group of non-traditional miners. Further extending the functionality of the device like adding Lightning support for example and other interesting crypto features could also make it more attractive. Definitely an interesting concept, though not for the traditional crypto miner.

Shift Cryptosecurity is a Switzerland-based company that is making harwdare crypto wallets called BitBox. Their latest model called BitBox02 is available in two versions, a Bitcoin (BTC) only edition as well as Multi edition that supports altcoins such as Litecoin (LTC), Ethereum (ETH) as well as ERC-20 tokens with both available for 109 CHF (Swiss Francs) or pretty much around $109 USD. The BitBox02 – Multi edition hardware wallet plugs directly to a USB port (Type-C by default or with an adapter for Type-A) and can also be used as a second factor authenticator (FIDO compliant U2F) to secure your accounts on Google, Facebook, Dropbox, GitHub and others. Backups are automatically saved onto the complimentary microSD card and the BIP-39 mnemonic seed can optionally be displayed to copy to paper. The device features an OLED display and invisible touch sensors for navigation (tap, slide and hold gestures).

The device is powered by an ATSAMD51J20A microcontroller (120 MHz 32-bit Cortex-M4F) with True Random Number Generator (NIST SP 800-22 and Diehard Random Tests Suites) and a secure chip ATECC608A with True Random Number Generator (NIST SP 800-90A/B/C). The companion software you need to use with the hardware wallet is called BitBoxApp and it is available for Windows, Linux and MAC OS operating systems. On the video above you can see the device in action, plugged in at a computer, the touch navigation along with the software it uses.

Bobby Lee, the founder of the BTCC crypto exchange, is back in the crypto business with a new project called Ballet – a multicurrency non-electronic crypto hardware wallet. The device is a metal credit card size wallet offering cold storage of Bitcoin (BTC) and a number of altcoins such as ETH, XRP, BCH, LTC, USDT, BSV, LEO, LINK, MKR, USDC, HT, BTG, BCD and DAI with support for more coins coming soon. The Ballet wallet is constructed from durable, pure stainless steel and does not contain any chips or electronic circuitry inside. There is also the optional Ballet Crypto companion mobile app, which enables sending of cryptocurrency, checking market value and activating additional currencies. The companion application is available for both Android and iPhone devices and is not required to operate with your crypto coins in the wallet.

The new Ballet hardware crypto wallet will have to compete with the already established crypto hardware wallets, most of which are electronic however. With the regular price of $35 USD for the standard Ballet wallet it might not be a bad deal, down to $29.95 for pre-orders for the standard Bitcoin primary wallet at the moment. Of course there is a more expensive limited 24K Gold-plated Edition (1200 wallets) as well as Collector edition (3000 wallets) at higher prices for the people that might want to stand out more, although the wallet probably is something that you would not be willing to brag with in front of a lot of people.
