CoolWallet and popular layer-1 chain ThunderCore have announced a new high-profile collaboration that will provide their users with the means to self-custody their crypto assets in superior cold storage and bring CoolWallet to a whole new crypto ecosystem.
ThunderCore is a high-performance and EVM-compatible blockchain that has built a thriving Web3 ecosystem around mobile entertainment and gaming in order to attract and retain users. Supported by its own native TT Wallet and TT cryptocurrency and a plethora of fun Dapps, ThunderCore consistently ranks in the Top 5 blockchains in the world by daily active users (DAU), and its community will now become part of the CoolWallet family as well.
CoolWallet’s groundbreaking series of portable Bluetooth hardware wallets are tailor-made to meet the cold storage needs of Web3, DeFi, and NFT users on blossoming chains such as ThunderCore. Our flagship model CoolWallet Pro boasts elite biometric security and a credit card form factor, and together with the feature-rich CoolWallet App, allows users to buy, store, trade, and stake leading crypto assets with ease. CoolWallet released our free HOT wallet module in late 2022 to make it accessible to all crypto users and onboard new Web3 features and coin support faster.
How will users benefit from CoolWallet and ThunderCore’s partnership?
ThunderCore and CoolWallet share the sentiment that secure crypto self-custody is one of the most important elements of the entire Web3 picture. Indeed, there can be no future for crypto and Web3 without an absolute commitment to maintaining the highest standards in digital-asset storage.
CoolWallet’s groundbreaking innovations in this area make them the ideal partner for ThunderCore’s blockchain and a valuable milestone in both our histories.
CoolWallet users will now have access to ThunderCore’s hugely popular ecosystem which has seen explosive growth since 2021 thanks to its industry-leading retention capabilities and gamification mechanisms. At the same time, the CoolWallet integration will open up many useful new avenues for the ThunderCore community to buy, sell, trade, and store crypto.
To kick things off, ThunderCore will integrate its mainnet with CoolWallet’s hardware wallets, and provide the liquidity to enable swaps of TT in-app. Next, they will integrate with CoolWallet HOT, followed by further collaboration.
ThunderCore and CoolWallet: Building Web3 together in 2023
The last year has been a brutal exercise on why any serious cryptocurrency investor should keep their own assets in a non-custodial wallet like CoolWallet, where it cannot be impacted by centralized exchange shenanigans that may result in bankruptcies which could take all investor assets with them. With a growing list of “unsinkable” crypto service providers ranging from FTX, 3AC, Genesis and Silvergate Bank dramatically succumbing to fraud, the bear market, and the effects of quantitative tightening, there’s been a seismic shift back to crypto self-custody.
This direction marks a return to the core values of crypto ownership and one that both ThunderCore and CoolWallet are fully aligned with for the long term. With their tokenomics overhaul, expansion of validator nodes, and other efforts such as a $10m developer fund, ThunderCore has been keenly aware that the future of crypto lies in decentralization and is eager to help define that future through partnerships with the likes of CoolWallet.
ThunderCore is a fast and secure layer-1 blockchain founded in Silicon Valley in 2017 by serial entrepreneur Chris Wang (who sold his previous company to Disney for $760 million a decade ago) to provide a robust infrastructure for DApps and the wider DeFi ecosystem. It is designed for scalability, security, and usability and focused on creating a seamless user experience rooted in mobile entertainment.
Its high-performance blockchain offers a breakthrough consensus protocol PaLa, 4,000+ TPS, sub-second confirmation times, and low gas fees. ThunderCore is EVM-compatible, boasts its own TT Wallet and TT cryptocurrency, and prioritizes interoperability through its cross-chain mechanism called ThunderCore Bridge, enabling the exchange of native assets on other blockchains.
With over 4 million addresses and 180 million transactions on its network, ThunderCore is dedicated to bringing blockchain technology to wide adoption.
Founded in 2014 and bringing the first portable Bitcoin hardware wallet in the world to market in 2016, CoolWallet is a non-custodial Web3 wallet that allows users to seamlessly manage their digital assets with security and flexibility in cold and hot storage. The company’s waterproof and tamper-proof hardware wallets are the lightest in the industry, with a credit-card design that fits easily in your pocket, purse, or an old-school leather wallet.
CoolWallet Pro, its latest model, features military-grade Bluetooth encryption as well as EAL 6+ secure element (SE) chipset, which puts it among the most secure cold-storage solutions available today, like Ledger’s Nano X. These wallets were designed with both security and convenience in mind, and all assets can be managed through the sleek user interface of the CoolWallet App.
In addition to its line of hardware wallets, CoolBitX has recently introduced CoolWallet HOT, a digital wallet with enhanced coin support and new wallet features such as a coming launchpad and airdrops. No hardware wallet purchase is required, and it is free to download as part of the latest CoolWallet App version on Google Play and the Apple Store. It’s set to expand the CoolWallet user base to an even greater size thanks to its emphasis on targeting growth sectors such as NFTs, DeFi, and Web3, which aligns with ThunderCore’s strategic aims.
Both the CoolWallet Pro and the CoolWallet HOT have extensive support for staking the tokens of the major layer-1 and layer-2 blockchains, including Ethereum, Solana, Cosmos, Polkadot, Tezos, and many more. Furthermore, the CoolWallet App boasts in-app integrations with leading NFT marketplaces such as OpenSea and Rarible.
