Big news, everyone! Cryptosteel is out of beta — and special editions are available for a limited time.
After countless brainstorms, demos and optimizations, our long-awaited assembly line is finally all greased up and good to go. We’re beside ourselves with gratitude to all our friends, fans, trailblazing customers and early backers. You have made it possible for us to come this far, and we’re thrilled to announce this next stage of our journey.
As of right now, open-source Cryptosteel project schematics are permanently available for download on Github. To celebrate this event, we’re offering a limited run of one-of-a-kind test-run prototypes, each signed, distinctive and part of a collector’s edition featuring a signed print by Cryptosteel’s contributing artist Rafael Akahira. In commemoration of our open-source launch, Akahira has combined his signature reduction woodblock technique with vivid imagery inspired by Satoshi Nakamoto’s infamous manifesto. Each print, like each limited-edition Cryptosteel indestructible backup tool, is completely unique and available for a limited time only.
We’re also happy to report that our newest-and-most-improved Cryptosteel blueprints are updated and available for download on an open-source basis. Unlike our limited offer, this is not a temporary arrangement. In fact, we pledge to support the open source way — always.
Cryptosteel is the premier indestructible backup tool for optimal offline storage of private keys, passwords and wallet recovery seeds without any third-party involvement. The technology combines the age-old idea of engraving with a DIY assembly format and materials that are stainless, rust-free, and fireproof up to 1200°C/2100°F to survive extreme conditions and unthinkable abuse.
Our goal was to solve the problem of third-party involvement for bitcoin users and and all those sensitive to security pitfalls in the internet age. — Wojtek Stopiński, CEO, Cryptosteel
Following endorsement by hundreds of cryptocurrency users at the beta stage, Cryptosteel is going to full production with a final product ready for the public.
It wasn’t until I physically held my own Cryptosteel tool that I knew I had to get in on the bitcoin experience. — Cryptosteel beta user
Cryptosteel indestructible backup tools are compatible with numerous Bitcoin HD wallets, including Trezor, Ledger and KeepKey.
The Cryptosteel company headquarters are in the UK and all Cryptosteel products are assembled in Poland’s ore-rich Lower Silesia, home of company founder and cryptocurrency enthusiast Wojtek Stopiński.
We saw the need to give cryptocurrency a solid, concrete shape and weight. Our customers tell us that they love the way Cryptosteel feels like money.
— Wojtek Stopiński, CEO, Cryptosteel
Each Cryptosteel tool enables users to store a confidential sequence of up to 96 characters instantly and privately. Backups are assembled manually using the provided optimized (and part-randomized) tile library. Applications include storage of BIP39-compatible private keys, account numbers, master passwords, PINs, GPS co-ordinates and other sensitive information.
