It has been a few years since the explosion of Bitcoins at $20,000. But with this explosion and the trending topics of Bitcoin and crypocurrencies back in those days, cryptocurrencies became more and more common and used around the world. In fact, there are more than $4 billions of transaction each day, representing 12,000 transaction per day.

But as this device is supposed to be an independent, virtual currency it’s not as safe and simple for the utilisators to spend their bitcoins online as it should be. So, in order to make those transactions easier let me introduce you to Shift Cryptosecurity and their BitBox hardware wallet.

Shift is a Swiss start-up founded in 2015 in Zürich, and now a team of twenty specialists in the crypto domain. The BitBox can be set up in a few simple steps :

  • Download and install the desktop app available for Windows, Mac & Linux
  • Plug in the BitBox with a micro SD card inserted, used to generate a backup
  • Set a password and a name for your wallet; remember the password
  • Remove the micro SD card and store it in a safe place


Their software works with Bitcoin Ethereum (ETH, ETC, and ERC20 tokens)/Litecoin and they are still working on adding new ones.

The software app is native, so avoids security attacks that other browser-based wallets risk. It also includes a feature called Hidden Wallet for plausible deniability in case someone forces a user to open their wallet.

It is a straight-forward  device, but it doesn’t need to be complicated to be a revolution. When you are looking for a new payment method, you are looking for an obvious system, . That’s the kind of product Shift is offering. A secure system, respecting the privacy of its users that will give them independence in the crypocurrency world.
