KeepKey Review 2018

The report is currently in translation

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.

Initialization

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.

Safe storage

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.

Recovery

If your KeepKey is lost or stolen, you can safely restore your device without compromising its private keys.

Some features

  • Bitcoin, Ethereum, Litecoin, Dogecoin, Hyphen, Namecoin and more in brief
  • Switch between the cryptographic currencies directly on the device with ShapeShift
  • Supported by customers such as Electrum, MultiBit and Mycelium
  • Virus and malware protection
  • Works on PC, Mac, Linux and Android
