Last year, Blockchain Technologies Inc. (BTI) worked a standalone cryptocurrency hardware wallet called Staker; however, Kamron Kennedy, the developer of Staker, has revealed that his promised share of revenue could not be delivered due to problems with marketing and selling the device.
In response to this issue, Kennedy has released the source code of the project and has written a blog post which details deployment instructions. In a Reddit post where he explained the situation he stated that he was ‘bringing it to everyone’s attention so that if there is something I can do to make this more useful, it will be pointed out to me (Kennedy).’
Staker was designed to work with most cryptocurrencies and may be run from a micro-PC that already has the cryptocurrency wallet daemon running. Kennedy believes that people may find this opportunity useful, drawing parallels with the 21.co device. Additionally, he mentioned that there is password protection but urged users to stick to trusted networks to ensure safety. Screenshots of the UI were also provided.
