Protecting Your Private Keys
A Bitcoin wallet stores the private keys that allow the user to access and transfer their Bitcoins. The private keys are strings of characters that serve as digital signatures, authenticating transactions and ensuring that only the rightful owner can access the funds.
Bitcoin wallets can be software or hardware-based. Software wallets are digital applications that store the private keys on a computer or smartphone. Hardware wallets, on the other hand, are physical devices that are designed to store the private keys offline, making them less susceptible to hacking and online theft.
Try the air-gapped Keystone Wallet.
By using QR code transmissions, the Keystone Wallet has eliminated potential malware infiltration risks and delivered a level of transparency that just isn’t possible with Bluetooth or USB.
Keystone has pioneered the hardware wallet industry’s first open source Secure Element firmware. It allows you to see how private keys are derived from physically generated entropy (TRNG) and stay entirely confined within the Secure Element. The hardware wallet application layer, device schematic (circuit diagram), and bill of materials (BOM) are also open source.
The Ledger Stax is powered by the Secure Element chip and Ledger’s proprietary OS, battle-tested for years by security experts.
Digital asset support
The Ledger Stax supports over 500 different crypto & tokens. These are all also supported on the Ledger Live app.
Ethereum and Polygon NFTs supported on the Ledger Live app.
More than 5000 crypto, tokens, and NFTs supported when using a third-party wallet.

SecuX, a well-known blockchain security company and manufacturer of cryptocurrency hardware wallets, has integrated the FIO Protocol in partnership with FIO. The FIO Protocol offers a more streamlined way to use cryptocurrencies while significantly reducing the risk of errors.
SecuX users can now enjoy the benefits of the FIO Protocol by creating their own custom FIO Crypto Handle, which replaces the need to handle complex public wallet addresses. For instance, a user can create a simple and human-readable wallet name on the @secux domain, such as jane@secux.
In addition, SecuX users can create and purchase custom domains and custom Crypto Handles with their custom domains. This feature allows users to buy their last name as a domain and create custom crypto handles for each family member in the format of firstname@lastname.
The BitBox hardware wallet is a compact and portable device that measures just 42mm x 22mm x 12mm. It is made of durable materials and features a minimalist design that is both elegant and functional. The device has a black casing and a small OLED display that shows transaction information and account balances.
One of the key features of the BitBox hardware wallet is its secure element. The device has a secure chip that is designed to protect the private keys used to access cryptocurrency accounts. This chip is isolated from the main microcontroller and has its own power source, making it resistant to attacks such as side-channel attacks and physical tampering.
The BitBox hardware wallet also uses a dual-chip architecture. This means that the device has two separate microcontrollers, each with its own independent firmware. One of the microcontrollers is used to manage the user interface and communication with the computer or mobile device, while the other is used to manage the secure element and the private keys.
