Entering your Data into the Cryptosteel Cassette
Standardised Tiles vs. Hand-Written Solutions
Our aim is to standardise the offline information protection system and provide a solution right out of the box. You don’t need to think or worry about buying additional materials or special tools. You don’t have to learn the hard way how painful engraving metal can be – no specific knowledge or safety equipment is needed. Simply open the pack and get started – everything you need is right there.
We use a classic, easy to read font that will be legible 10 or 1000 years from now. Hand engravings will naturally differ from person to person. Over time, you (or your heirs) may not be able to retrieve the information from a hand-written backup due to style, ambiguity, or decay. Using standardised tiles, you can change, undo, or redo the data you wish to be guarded. Should you make any errors, you can easily correct them.
