The adoption of digital assets
is moving forward faster than ever.

The adoption of digital assets is moving forward faster than ever.

From currencies (Bitcoin, USDC, XMR), to applications (Curve, ENS, Helium, RNDR) to NFTs (CryptoPunk, Bored Ape), blockchain technology is truly disrupting the world in every possible way. As a result, crypto adoption is growing at an exponential rate. From 25% of small businesses plan to accept crypto payments in 2022 (Visa Study), to Tesla accepted Dogecoin as payment in their store. However, are we actually ready for it?

The infrastructure for
managing crypto is not there yet.

Why centralized services again?

Most people store and manage their crypto in an exchange or app, but it actually means the service owns the assets but not you, and carrying all of them in an app in your pocket can not be more careless.

The intimidating plug-ins.

For advanced users, Metamask or Phantom wallet are better choices, but a chrome plugin has a steep learning curve and is not user-friendly at all. Besides, saving seed phrases in a browser on a laptop that you bring to the cafe daily can be quite strange and very risky.

Safe but hard to use.

A hardware wallet one of the safest ways for now to store assets, but it is irritating and hard to use as you still need to connect it with a computer and click here and there to make a single transaction. Moreover, as it is a size of a USB stick, it can be so easy to lose, and you don't want it to happen as that is the key to your vault.

(I couldn't be more thankful for the ones who made these services mentioned above possible, it is your products that inspired me to push it even further.)

A tangible solution for
not only the brave,
but all of us.

This project aims to provide an easy and safe physical solution for people to manage, store and use digital assets.
For not only the maximalists, but for all of us who want to just try it out, even with little or no experience.

Design approach:

Using a User-Centered Design method, I try to connect an intricate and intangible technology to a user-friendly and physical design, which will bridge the gap between the virtual and physical world, provide a safe and trustworthy solution for people to explore the digital blockchain assets in the palm of their hands.
