BitLox Limited is now manufacturing secure hardware bitcoin wallets. Encased in titanium and aerospace grade alloys, it features a multitude of privacy and security features including hidden bitcoin wallet support, duress PIN, AEM, quad password protection and others. Users can also use iOS and Android apps to manage their bitcoin.
There are two versions available: the titanium encased ‘BitLox Ultimate’, and aerospace grade alloy ‘BitLox Advanced’. The wallets measuring 4 mm in thickness and weighs approximately 25g. BitLox wallets feature a 2″ full matrix e-paper display, multiple layers of PIN protection and Bluetooth LE for access with smartphones.
Hardware wallets can be used with BitLox’s TOR based access, or even the newest privacy network I2P. BitLox can also be used with the privacy-focussed TailsOS.
BitLox also enables hidden bitcoin wallets. Users can keep funds in special wallets that are indistinguishable from random data, disguising their existence. BitLox recommends placing a small amount of BTC in an open wallet, with the bulk of remaining funds hidden. In the unlikely case of extortion or coercion, one could be given up; however, BitLox supports up to 50 hidden bitcoin wallets.
If there ever is a need to quickly return the BitLox to the factory fresh state, the duress PIN can be used in place of the normal device PIN to instantly and irrevocably wipe the BitLox memory. AEM, or ‘Anti Evil Maid’, is a system where users set a special recognition phrase so they can always verify that it is their BitLox, instead of a device substituted by some evil actor intent on finding out the device PINs.
A device recognition PIN, device power-on PIN, wallet PIN, and a per transaction PIN are all configurable. Users can customize their BitLox with as many layers of PIN protection as they desire, without sacrificing usability.
