The idea that led to Cryptosteel was born in 2013, just as early adopters were first discovering the potential of open-source projects and free currency networks. It was then that Cryptosteel’s future CEO set out to deploy his knowledge of metalworking to give invisible virtual assets a physical form. By 2015 Cryptosteel was a crowdfunding success and by December 2017 both Forbes and the Wall Street Journal had also taken notice. Worldwide demand has allowed Sword Ltd, the privately owned company behind Cryptosteel, to foster a non-hierarchical employment model that respects the freedom of each individual on the team.
Today, Sword Ltd employs 19 people (and counting…). All Cryptosteel products are produced in-house and shipped directly to customers and resellers worldwide. The Cryptosteel blueprints are available on an open source basis.
