BSV hardware wallet on its way

A new cryptocurrency hardware wallet is coming that is meant to take on Trezor and Ledger. This one already has a leg up on the competition, though, as it has incorporated support for the original Bitcoin, Bitcoin SV (BSV).

The new Keevo wallet offers a “quantum leap in crypto security and convenience,” according to its website. According to the company’s chief technical officer, Chen Nie, “Keevo is a HUGE step forward in security and convenience—it’s a ground breaking, premium hardware wallet. We know because we manage millions in fiat currency crypto value. Keevo dramatically increases the security and ease of managing your digital identity and crypto assets.”

Keevo announced that it would most likely provide support for BSV in response to a conversation with a BSV fan, Tony G. Tony posted the results of the conversation on Twitter, providing a screen capture from Keevo that reads, “…added BSV to the list of coins we would like to have supported by launch.”

Keevo is a product of BitKey Bank out of San Francisco, California. The wallet is not yet ready to be released, and will be available for pre-order next month with shipping beginning toward the end of the summer. The wallet includes a proprietary “Carbon Key” solution that is designed to replace paper seed phrases and comes with a 2.8-inch LCD color touch screen display, fingerprint sensor, Bluetooth connectivity and a long-duration lithium-ion rechargeable battery.

The company asserts, “Keevo is like having your own private Swiss bank vault in your pocket. No one else, anywhere—online or off—can access your private keys. They are completely air gapped and securely encrypted on your Keevo. You need your MF/MSA signatures to sign any transaction. And, with Keevo’s premium service, we’ll securely store your Carbon Key™ in one of our secure storage facilities dispersed across the globe and protected by our chain of custody system.”

Both the Trezor and Ledger have been avoiding BSV, despite its position in the market. As the only crypto that adheres to the original Satoshi’s Vision and is designed to be used as a true peer-to-peer alternative to fiat, it is the only crypto that can truly call itself Bitcoin.

Note: Tokens on the Bitcoin Core (SegWit) chain are referenced as BTC coins; tokens on the Bitcoin Cash ABC chain are referenced as BCH, BCH-ABC or BAB coins.

Bitcoin Satoshi Vision (BSV) is today the only Bitcoin project that follows the original Satoshi Nakamoto whitepaper, and that follows the original Satoshi protocol and design. BSV is the only public blockchain that maintains the original vision for Bitcoin and will massively scale to become the world’s new money and enterprise blockchain.
