Still not sure you need a CoolWallet S in your life? Let’s see if we can persuade you to make the jump to giving your crypto the premium cold storage they deserve.
Here are 10 reasons why, according to our users, the CoolWallet is the best Bluetooth hardware wallet for everyday use.
1. On-the-go cold storage, anywhere, anytime
Cryptocurrency exchanges breaking your heart and cheating on you? This week, the 7th major exchange of 2019 got hacked. These hacks and scams won’t stop until digital exchanges are better regulated and improve their security.
Our cold storage wallet keeps your digital assets safe and goes everywhere you go. You retain full control and security at all times.
2. The most Secure Element (CCEAL5+)
The CoolWallet S Secure Element adheres to the highest industry standard, namely CCEAL5+(Evaluation Assurance Level Common Criteria).
Our Secure Element, which is also used in traditional banking applications, keeps your private key locked up at all times to ensure that no one, not even you, can view it. It only communicates non-essential data over Bluetooth. Unlike other hardware wallets, all transactions are signed within our SE, not your mobile phone or any vulnerable component.
3. Military-grade Bluetooth encryption
It’s nearly 2020. A hardware wallet should connect wirelessly and safely with your phone. The safest option? Bluetooth. We’ve known this since we started in 2014.
Over 5 years ago, long before some of our competitors finally realized that Bluetooth is the next big thing for crypto hardware wallets, we started slaving away to make sure our Bluetooth is future-proof and the best in the business.
Our users love our stable military-grade AES256 Bluetooth encryption that works seamlessly, securely and reliably with your phone app.
4. 2+1 FA: Biometric and physical verification
The CoolWallet S adds an additional layer to 2FA security to give our users extra peace of mind.
We require a mix of biometric, software and physical verifications to confirm any transaction.
Biometric Factor Authentication
To use our app, you’ll have to prove you own the phone you’re using, by unlocking both the phone and our app through fingerprint scanning, ID pattern and a PIN code. The choice is yours to decide how many security layers you want to apply.
Physical confirmation on Card
Any action taken on the app that involves the moving of your crypto assets, requires users to fire up the CoolWallet S and connect to our app. Users must then do a visual check of the transaction details on the card’s little e-paper screen to ensure that your funds are going where you intend it to. Next, you need to physically press the card’s button to authorize the transaction.
This is foolproof way to ensure that you’ll immediately notice if a compromised app (not the card- remember it’s tamperproof thanks to its thinness) is trying to trick you.
Reminder: Only download our official CoolBitX app from the Google Play and iOS App stores.
5. It’s tamper-proof (and flexible)
The CoolWallet S looks and feels like a credit card. It’s wafer-thin and flat. You can’t open it, unlike USB hardware wallets.
Most USB hardware wallets are susceptible to supply chain attacks, where third parties open the device and modify it, because they have extra space on their boards.
The CoolWallet has no space to add any hardware, and moreover, our compression technology ensures that any attempt to tamper with or open our card will result in an unseemly mess that will be immediately visible to the naked eye.
6. It fits in your actual wallet
Shouldn’t a hardware wallet be as portable as an actual wallet?
The slim ColdWallet fits neatly inside a personal wallet or purse. It’s discreet and looks like a normal credit card.
This means you can take this cold storage wallet everywhere with you and trade, send and receive crypto it on the go, without anyone even noticing.
7. It’s waterproof and super-durable
The CoolWallet S is designed for everyday use. It’s built to last, and is bendable (15 degrees) and completely waterproof. You don’t have to worry about it malfunctioning when you hit the beach or it hits your washing machine by accident. Or it drops in your beer!
Ask yourself this: Would you trust any other cold hardware wallet to still work after you’ve jumped in the pool?
8. Our App- New Security, Features and Coins Added!
We made some big changes in 2019 to make the CoolWallet S more secure, more versatile and of course, compatible with more awesome cryptocurrencies!
To complement our integrated Changelly feature that allows you to trade your cryptocurrencies on the go, in 2019 we also added an integration with the new Binance DEX, the decentralized version of the world’s biggest crypto exchange, to help our users trade without giving up control to centralized exchanges.
Our WalletConnect feature allows CoolWallet S users to connect to any supporting DEX.
In 2019, we delivered on our promise to add more quality virtual assets to the CoolWallet S. Remember, our wallet supports the top 5 (and 8 of the 10) most popular cryptocurrencies as of December 2019:
- Bitcoin (BTC)
- Ethereum (ETH)
- Ripple (XRP)
- Tether (USDT) – OMNI chain added in 2019
- Bitcoin Cash (BCH)
- Litecoin (LTC),
- Binance Coin (BNB) -added in 2019
- Stellar (XLM) – added in 2019
We also support 1000s of ERC20 tokens and added other coins like ICX in 2019.
In 2019, we added some great new features in 2019 to make the CoolWallet even more secure:
Our users had asked for this one for a while. We listened. Our PIN code feature helps you to keep your portfolio information safe from anyone who has access to your phone. No we didn’t say your Significant Other. You said it!
This new feature is a high-level feature for our customers who take their security very seriously. It allows you to set up your seed recovery without displaying the details on your phone. It’s a time-consuming process, but very cool.
9. A Battery That Lasts 3 Months
The CoolWallet can last 3 months in standby mode on a single charge, which means you don’t have to worry about constantly charging the device.
Our card connects to a little USB docking station that recharges your mobile Bluetooth hardware wallet in no time.
10. The Screen
Aha. The card with the screen. It doesn’t matter how long you’ve been in crypto or how many gadgets you own.
When you press that little button on the CoolWallet S for the first time or the hundredth time, jaws tend to drop. Our display technology is patented and truly unique.
Hand it over to your family and friends and watch their faces and ensuing smiles when the “Hello” message pops up.
If you’re still looking to take the leap to hardware wallet security that fits in your pocket and goes where you go, then hop on this Black Friday special right away!
