The announcement reveals that the store now carries two versions of the BitBox wallet – one for Bitcoin only and the other that supports multiple currencies including Ethereum, Litecoin, and all ERC20 tokens alongside Bitcoin. Visitors to The Crypto Merchant’s web store benefit from complimentary shipping within the US and access to the company’s renowned customer service team who are always on hand to answer any questions and offer guidance on all products.
Hardware wallets were first developed around 2014 in the wake of hacking scandals that saw hundreds of millions of dollars worth of Bitcoin stolen by cybercriminals. While the original hardware wallets were designed purely to allow holders to store the private keys of their digital assets in a secure, offline (cold) location, technology has developed to enable users to stake assets via companion software apps without compromising security.
The BitBox02 is a second-generation design from the Shift Crypto team that offers automatic seed phrase backup via a microSD card. The wallet features touch sensors for smooth, intuitive control alongside a high-definition OLED display. Users also benefit from advanced privacy protection features such as Coin Control and personal node connections, enabling secure, anonymous transactions.
The device was designed and engineered by leading Swiss technicians and is made using fully open-source technology, allowing inspection, independent auditing, and validation from leading cryptographers and DeFi experts. The BitBox02 comes with a 2-year warranty and also features a dual-chip design.
A spokesperson for The Crypto Merchant says, “It is well known by now that storing your Cryptocurrency in a software wallet is a bad idea. With Bitbox02, you’ll never worry again about malicious hackers and security lapses threatening your hard-earned assets.”
