Hardware wallet creator KeepKey adds Ethereum support

Announcements | December 1, 2016 By:

KeepKey has announced integration with Ethereum due to soaring community demand.

The Ethereum network is a decentralized platform that runs smart contracts or applications that run exactly as programmed i.e. minus any risk of fraud, downtime, third party interference or censorship. Examples of what can be built on the Ethereum network include a tradeable token with a fixed supply, a central bank that can issue money and a puzzle-based cryptocurrency.

“Of all the assets we get asked to support on KeepKey, Ethereum is by far the most requested. It’s a massive project with a huge following. The KeepKey and KeepKey Chrome Extension will be the first hardware wallet and application that supports Bitcoin, Litecoin, Dogecoin and Ethereum in one single user interface,” said KeepKey CEO Darin Stanchfield.

With the ether support, users will be able to manage several ether accounts with various addresses, effortlessly swap between tokens through the ShapeShift functionality, and keep full recovery capability by the single KeepKey recovery sentence.

KeepKey is a Seattle-based hardware wallet provider.
