KeepKey Review 2018
Table of Contents
Keepkey is a crypto hardware wallet that supports Bitcoin and a number of other currencies. It convinces by its easy handling and the beautiful, simple, black design.
How it works
KeepKey works with the wallet software on your computer by managing private key generation, private keystore and transaction signing.
The Hardware Wallet generates a private key with its hardware-based random number generator, combined with the randomness of your computer.
Securing the hardware wallet
Once your private key is generated, you will have the unique opportunity to write down a backup copy of your KeepKey in the form of a twelve-word recovery set.
Your private key is securely stored on your KeepKey, never leaving the device. Your KeepKey is PIN-protected, which makes it useless even if it falls into the wrong hands.
Processing on the KeepKey
KeepKey’s large display gives clarity to every digital asset that leaves the device. Each transaction must be approved manually using the KeepKey confirmation key.
If your KeepKey is lost or stolen, you can safely restore your device without compromising its private keys.
