About CoolWallet S
The CoolWallet S was released in early 2018 as the successor to the first-generation CoolWallet (for Bitcoin storage only).
The size of an ATM card that you could fit inside your real wallet, the revolutionary hardware wallet was crammed with incredible technology inside a wafer-thin, tamperproof body. It made an immediate splash with crypto users… and not only because it’s also waterproof.
From a crypto-security perspective, The CoolWallet S is a BLE hardware wallet designed for completely offline use with mobile phones via its intuitive app (iOS/Android). The hardware wallet’s Secure Element (CC EAL5+) ensures that the user’s private key is completely offline and protected at all times, and only verifies and signs transaction data over military-grade encrypted Bluetooth.
The CoolWallet’s supported CoolBitX App allows users to send, receive and trade virtual assets anywhere, anytime and is integrated with Binance DEX and Changelly, as well as a TokenSwap feature for users to trade ERC20 tokens on their own terms.
CoolWallet S’ supported cryptocurrencies
CoolWallet S allows its users to store and protect the most premium virtual assets, such as Bitcoin (BTC), Ethereum (ETH), Litecoin (LTC), Ripple (XRP), Bitcoin Cash (BCH), Binance Coin (BNB), Horizen (ZEN), Icon (ICX), ERC20 tokens as well as the best stablecoins available, such as Gemini (GUSD), Tether Omni (USDT), True USD (TUSD) and Circle (USDC).
CoolBitX continue to innovate with new features
CoolBitX continues to innovate and is constantly adding new integrations to CoolWallet S, building the CoolWallet brand and meeting the demands of the ever-growing digital asset market.
Not known for resting on their laurels, CoolWallet S fans can expect the CoolBitX team to continue to keep innovating and improving both the functionality and security of this incredibly convenient cold storage device.
Less than 2 weeks ago, CoolBitX announced a new PIN code feature for their CoolBitX app that will protect the privacy of users’ portfolio from other phone users.
Next up is another groundbreaking new feature that will help CoolWallet S users recover their wallets in the case of a compromised phone by restoring the seed completely independently from their mobile device. The feature should be released within the next couple of weeks.
