The best wallet for cryptocurrencies like bitcoin and ether are now a reality, thanks to a team of engineers who spent six years designing a wallet designed specifically for the two.
The team built their wallet, called Metal Wallet, to take the hassle out of handling bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies, and to provide an easier way to store your wealth.
The Metal Wallet team says the wallet is made from high-strength aluminum, which makes it more resistant to wear and tear.
It has a battery life of two weeks, and its battery can be charged from a smartphone.
The team also claims it will last for a full day, while a conventional metal wallet would only last about an hour.
Metal Wallet was unveiled on Wednesday at a technology conference in Seoul, South Korea.
The wallet, which has an estimated price tag of $3,000, is the brainchild of Seoul-based tech firm, Digital Asset Management (DAM), which is also the lead developer of a metal wallet called Metal.DAM has also designed and built an alternative metal wallet, Metal Electron, that is similar to Metal Wallet but comes with an embedded microprocessor.
Metal Electron is due out sometime in the third quarter of 2018, but it will cost a few thousand dollars more than Metal Wallet.
The Metal Wallet wallet will also ship with a built-in smart lock, which will let you set a time limit for when you can unlock the wallet and use the metal key, as well as a feature called “digital security,” which will allow you to access your money from your computer without having to enter the PIN.
“The Metal wallet is designed to offer users the convenience of storing their bitcoin and bitcoin-like assets in an accessible and safe manner,” DAM said in a statement.
“With the Metal wallet, users can store their money in a secure manner, without requiring physical access to the wallet.”
For now, the Metal Wallet is only available in South Korea, where the Metal Electrons are already sold.
The company says it plans to launch the wallet in the U.S. and Europe in the coming months.
