CoolWallet has come a massive way since Michael Ou founded CoolBitX in 2014. As of May 2022, we have done business in over 100 countries, sold hundreds of thousands of hardware wallets, and we are continuing to expand our reach around the globe.
This is the CoolWallet Pro roadmap of what we achieved in 2021 and what’s coming up next in 2022.
We are simply totally committed to our goal of helping to bring about widespread adoption of crypto assets with our cutting-edge cold storage solutions.
After a blistering first few months of the year, let’s take a moment to review what we’ve been up to, and of course, where we’re going this year and beyond.
Where we’ve been
Our flagship product, the pioneering CoolWallet mobile hardware wallet, which we released in 2016, is continually evolving and improving its features. On top of storing crypto, our latest flagship model, the DeFi-focused CoolWallet Pro, now lets you browse non-fungible tokens (NFTs) via marketplaces inside our app, while users are also able to get involved in areas of decentralized finance (DeFi) such as staking as well as borrowing and lending.
When CoolWallet Pro launched last May, we had a solid array of new supported tokens from the start in addition to the existing CoolWallet S stable. These included but were not limited to Cosmos, Polkadot, and Tron, in addition to BTC, ETH, ERC20, LTC, XRP, and many more. Just a little while later in Q3, we added support for Binance Smart Chain (BSC) as well as a range of TRC20 tokens.
At the end of 2021, we announced CoolWallet Pro’s long-awaited native in-app integrations for OpenSea and Rarible, two of the premier NFT marketplaces.
The year 2022 saw the CoolWallet team open the floodgates, announcing product support for a slew of new tokens and chains, including Cardano (ADA), Polygon (MATIC), and the Crypto.org (CRONOS) chain. We’ve also teamed up with decentralized exchange (DEX) aggregator 1-Inch, and we’ve added support for leading hot wallet MetaMask as well as Terra.
With the year for CoolWallet and crypto proceeding at a dizzyingly fast clip, it’s a good time to take stock of what we are planning to achieve with CoolWallet Pro before the ball drops on December 31.
Where we’re going
From the looks of it, the rest of the year will be just as busy its been so far, and we can barely contain our excitement about the growing list of supported tokens and chains. There’s so much on our to-do list that we look forward to bringing our customers, and we really think 2022 will be the year that CoolWallet Pro really takes off with a ton of new users. Here’s a brief teaser list of what you can expect from us going forward this year.
CoolWallet 2022 Quarter 2
Right now in the second quarter, we’re very focused on our NFT wallet, which is a very special project that we’re overjoyed to be sharing with our community. We’re also working on support for Tezos, Avax – C chain, and Solana.
CoolWallet 2022 Quarter 3 & Quarter 4
The second half of the year will see the introduction of a big change in our marketplace (the cash-out service) as well as a major development in the world of crypto we’ve all been waiting for to take place – the Ethereum Merge and the beginning of Eth 2.0 – and we’re preparing already so that we don’t waste in any time in helping our users support the new proof-of-stake (PoS) consensus mechanism on the world’s oldest smart contract platform, Ethereum. Not to mention adding support for a wealth of new tokens and chains. Some of these include Harmony, Stacks, VeChain, Fantom, Mina, and Celo, Theta, TFuel, and IoTex.
Community comes first for CoolWallet. Always has and always will. We build for you, to help you secure the most valuable assets of tomorrow, a mission that we created in the aftermath of the Mt. Gox hack in 2014.
With our wonderful community of committed crypto users always at the center of our focus, we are very careful to implement any new solutions with the utmost caution and care, as we don’t want to rush anything that might compromise the security solutions we take so much pride in.
That’s why we identify our goals in the distance and plan accordingly. We’d like to thank all of our users for trusting us with their crypto storage solutions, and we promise to continue our work helping each and every one of you go to bed at night knowing your tokens are completely secure. Upward and onward!
