WHAT IS GOLDILOCK?
Investors in cryptocurrencies are mostly faced with the issue of digital data storage. Goldilock is a platform that secures or stores digital assets and cryptocurrencies for users. Goldilock acts as a cold storage till when a user wants to access his/her data or funds. It is a platform that allows digital (crypto) keys and assets to be active when a user needs it while being disconnected from the internet when the user is not making use of it.
Goldilock is online when you need it, offline when you don't, and available anytime from anywhere.
THE GOLDILOCK SOLUTION
Goldilock is built on three core principles:

Quick accessibility of personal data and private keys when needed by clients.
Quick access to users' personal data but only for short period of time to prevent hackers intrusion.
Personal data must always be kept away from physical contact when not in use by user and must be fully backed-up.
SENSITIVE DIGITAL DATA MANAGEMENT
Before now cryptocurrencies investors saved their crypto keys to online wallets which makes the data vulnerable to hacks, custodial company collapse and denial of service. Some opt to the use of personally-held hardware storage solutions which can be misplaced, stolen or destroyed. Goldilock helps keep your data safe from all of these issues. Goldilock provides a remote physical disconnection of data from the Internet when the user is not active. The advent of Goldilock will secure your offline data while offering you online accessibility whenever you need access. You don't need to copy your keys to USB drives or flash drives anymore which could be lost at anytime. You don't need to copy your keys into books and other hardware materials which is prone to destruction or being misplaced. [Goldilock] helps to secure your sensitive digital data while you stay at ease.
BENEFITS OF COMBINING BOTH COLD AND HOT STORAGE
Many might have heard of cold and hot digital wallets but never knew how they differ from each other.
Hot wallets are storage mechanisms connected to the internet. Hot wallets are similar to checking accounts. Cold wallets on the other hand are not connected to the Internet. They are like saving accounts.
Cold and hot wallets are designed for different purposes so most people who have digital assets hold both wallets.
People who have digital assets prefer to keep a small amount of money in their hot wallets while leaving the vast majority of their digital coins in their cold wallet. Cold storage solutions are not the answer to a suitable key management for investor's cryptocurrencies. Hot storage solutions on the other hand becomes unsuitable when it comes to the custody of private keys and digital assets as anything connected to the Internet can be hacked. Goldilock is not a cold storage neither is it a hot storage; It is just the right storage. [Godilock] understands that online data is more useful to hackers than rightful owners so it isolates personal data from physical contacts while backing it up fully.
HOW SECURITY CAN IMPACT MASS ADOPTION?
Goldilock establishes a security standard and security at the highest level makes sense. Persistent and rampant hacks of crypto exchanges, misuse and key theft have cost many millions of dollars. It turns out that standard security in cryptocurrencies digital assets encourage more people to come on board rather than leave, dissatisfied. News of hacking cryptocurrencies platforms have only left a dent rather than encourage use of cryptocurrencies. No one wants to be part of a system where your investment and funds are not safe. No one wants to lose in business.
So we see that security of any cryptocurrency project is going to be a huge priority and prerequisite for any single investor/user.
Key custody seems to be the primary reason why many individuals, institutions and maybe countries are slow in the adoption of crypto currencies. But with [Goldilock], the security of your wallets, passwords and private keys are ensured. Security has a price. The good news is that [Goldilock] solution is indispensable at almost any price. It worthy of note that [Goldilock] is here to ensure security of user's digital assets and crypto keys hence enhancing mass adoption.
AIRGAP TECHNOLOGY/MECHANISM: SECURITY BENEFITS
Wallet and personal data (including private keys)are stored online via a physical air gap medium. These physical airgap mechanism incorporated by [Goldilock] cannot be acessed from the Internet. Invariably, this implies that users' data cannot be hacked or acessed by hackers. Since the airgap mechanism is not connected to the Internet. Also issues of service denial is not heard of in this innovation. How then does the users acessed their wallets? Using a non-IP mechanism, users' activates their wallets making it acessible over the Internet for a short period of time. Upon activation of the wallets, users can securely have access to their wallets over an encrpted connection using a dedicated URL and access credentials.
We can conclude that the core benefit of keeping users'/investors' data offline using airgap technology is so that the data cannot be accessed by hackers and thieves owing to the fact that the data are not connected to the Internet.
