KeepKey Launches Native ERC-20 Token Support (v5.4.2)

KeepKey users can now send, receive and exchange between SALT, OmiseGo, District0x, FunFair and more in a safe, simple and secure way

SWITZERLAND (June 6, 2018) — KeepKey, a safe, simple and secure hardware wallet, has developed native ERC-20 token support. Users can now send, receive, and exchange between 30 ERC-20 tokens directly on any KeepKey. Through its native ERC-20 token support, KeepKey users can now create and view raw transactions directly on the device without connecting to a third-party.

KeepKey’s unique functionality enables the device to display the specific token name, token amount, destination address and total gas cost for the transaction before signing. These security features are unique to the KeepKey hardware wallet device.

Ken Hodler, KeepKey CTO, notes, “KeepKey’s large screen was designed to display transaction details in a clear and legible manner. We utilized our screen size for users to see every aspect of their ERC-20 token transactions prior to signing, allowing users to transfer their tokens without having to trust anyone else.”

ERC-20 tokens are built within the Ethereum ecosystem. All tokens apply a common set of rules and protocols and have been markedly utilized for fundraising of Initial Coin Offerings (ICOs).

Founded in 2014, KeepKey allows users to hold Bitcoin, Bitcoin Cash, Litecoin, Ethereum, Dash and Dogecoin. Following this addition of ERC-20 tokens, KeepKey’s robust roadmap for 2018 includes the addition of many more top market cap tokens as well as commonly requested feature updates.

KeepKey users can now access ERC-20 tokens using the KeepKey production client from the Chrome app store.

Full List of ERC-20 Tokens: Aragon, Augur, Basic Attention Token, Civic, District0x, FunFair, Golem, Gnosis, OmiseGo, SALT, Bancor, ICONOMI, Melon, SwarmCity, Wings, iExec, Status, Numeraire, Metal, TenX, Qtum, 0x, FirstBlood, Ripio Credit Network, SingularDTV, DigixDAO, WeTrust, Matchpool, Edgeless and Storj
