Blockchain's new hardware wallet allows crypto to crypto trading

posted about 1 year ago
Blockchain, one of the oldest software wallet providers in the cryptocurrency industry is launching its first hardware product. Partnering with Ledger, they started taking orders for a new handheld device called Lockbox, which begins shipping next month. Blockchain CEO and co-founder Peter Smith said that in addition to storing funds offline like other devices, it will facilitate crypto-to-crypto trades through Swap, the company's native brokerage, which is launching next week.

The Blockchain CEO went on to say "For us, what's really important right now is to get the product to a point where you don't need other places to complete your user actions in crypto." Ledger president Pascal Gauthier said "With our products, you can go from cold to hot [storage] in a heartbeat and the device will never reveal the key, so it means that it opens many avenues, especially for traders."
