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.

The new Trezor Model T is the next-generation cryptocurrency hardware wallet, designed to be your universal vault for all of your digital assets.
