Using a SteelWallet recovery kit, cryptocurrency traders can quickly restore access to the digital assets inside lost, stolen, damaged, or destroyed wallets. The kit can hold up to one 24-word recovery seed phrase, or two 12-word phrases, and is highly resistant to common causes of damage, such as fire, water, and corrosion.
ShiftCrypto is a trusted manufacturer of the popular BitBox02 cryptocurrency wallets, as well as the SteelWallet recovery kits, and tamper-evident bags. The company provides a combination of high-tech, low-tech, and no-tech solutions for securing digital assets, safely completing cryptocurrency transactions, and restoring access to damaged or lost wallets.
While a recovery seed phrase can be used to restore access to lost assets, if the phrase is stolen, it could also be used by bad actors to access a wallet without the owner’s consent. To prevent this, the SteelWallet uses an intentionally low-technology design that is fully unhackable because it is not connected to any smart devices, and does not contain any electronics.
The kit contains everything a trader needs to record and store their recovery seed phrase, and is compatible with all BIP39 standard passphrases. The kit includes two stainless steel sheets that can store up to 12 words each, an automatic punch tool, instructions, and a storage pouch.
The SteelWallet is considered “apocalypse-proof” due to its simple design and all-stainless steel construction. The recovery kit is highly resistant to fire, floods, corrosion, mechanical force, and impacts, but users should be aware that the kit still needs to be hidden once it contains a recovery seed phrase, to prevent theft.
For additional security, the SteelWallet uses a minimalist design that keeps the overall device size small, and easy to hide. Traders can also place their completed recovery kits inside tamper-evident bags, which will show obvious signs if anyone attempts to access the device.
