Review score of the CoolWallet
What is CoolWallet?
CoolWallet is a hardware wallet that looks like a regular credit card. However, it’s not just a plastic card, but a real electronic device that generates and safely stores your private keys. Because the CoolWallet is so thin, you can connect the wallet to any device that supports NFC or Bluetooth, but not with USB.
The card is waterproof and has a display screen. This display screen serves as security by displaying your passwords and backup seed, and you can confirm transactions through this screen.
What’s in the box?
If you order the CoolWallet, you get:
- The CoolWallet itself
- A charger
- A USB connector
- A recovery sheet on which you write down your backup seed
Installation and use
Unlike other hardware wallets like the Ledger Nano S, the CoolWallet is mobile-oriented. You must first connect the wallet to the CoolWallet mobile app. The device then creates your private key and backup seed. You can choose between a seed consisting of words or numbers. The seed that generates the wallet is shown on the display of the card, which you then write down on the supplied recovery sheet.
Security of the CoolWallet
The battery of the hardware wallet will last two years, and if you want to charge the card, you simply charge it by placing the card on top of the charger. The card is flexible and bendable and is heat resistant up to 140 degrees F.
