Big news coming down the pipeline from our partner KeepKey! KeepKey announced today that they have integrated Ethereum into their hardware wallet asset offerings. Ethereum will be available on the device starting Friday, November 25, 2016. Prior to this announcement, KeepKey had supported Bitcoin, Litecoin and Dogecoin and has integrated with ShapeShift to allow for seemless in-wallet exchanges.
The Ethereum support will allow for users to manage multiple Ethereum accounts with multiple addresses, seamlessly swap between tokens through the ShapeShift functionality, and maintain full recovery capability through the single KeepKey recovery sentence.
We are pretty excited about this! Our CEO Erik Voorhees had a little to say about the new addition:
“Ethereum and Bitcoin on one hardware device provides immense value to the digital asset ecosystem. Companies like KeepKey have done more to advance individual financial security than banks have done in the past hundred years.”
With daily trading volumes increasing to $11 million USD and recent hard forks ironing out several DDoS issues, Ethereum has been gaining significant traction in the cryptocurrency market and was added to the KeepKey roster in response to countless user requests.
CEO of KeepKey Darin Stanchfield said,
“Of all the assets we get asked to support on KeepKey, Ethereum is by far the most requested. It’s a massive project with a huge following and we are thrilled to release our public beta on Friday. The KeepKey and KeepKey Chrome Extension will be the first hardware wallet and application that supports Bitcoin, Litecoin, Dogecoin and Ethereum in one single user interface.”
Cofounder of Ethereum, Vitalik Buterin also said,
“User account security is one of the most important problems that must be dealt with for blockchain technology to achieve mass consumer adoption, and we highly welcome efforts like KeepKey that aim to solve this challenge.”
Black Friday Deal!
