New Hardware Wallets - Coming Soon
If you asked anyone about a hardware wallets for crypto assets the names you would be told of are: TREZOR, KeepKey and Ledger. Depending on how long the person has been in the cryptocurrency space you may be told about Opendime (hardware wallet for Bitcoin or Litecoin.)
Well all that is about to change. In a previous article I wrote the Kaspersky Lab's hardware wallet, yet to be released and for me it's best feature is the fact it will be a multi coin hardware wallet with several of the popular coins including #Monero. To my knowledge the are a number of monero hardware wallet projects collaboration yet to go live.
Today I will be writing about a new hardware wallet with a different use case. My initial reaction was to ask why would I want .... and they got back to me and I can see how it would be a priceless wallet for many others.
The product promises to be the kind of hardware wallet you take shopping with you. When i first heard of it these were my concerns:
My Comments to Hodler

The Big Question
If you had to shop for a hardware wallet would you consider one of these newer products? which set of features will aplea to you? would you go for the above Hodler or below Kaspersky's

Both vendors appear to have two price points. This brings me to the next question; when choosing a hardware wallet are your influenced by prices or features?
These two are potentially new players in the hardware wallet market. I have only just got a new #TREZOR T, I can not say I am looking for another hardware wallet. That being said the first hardware wallet company that implements #SmartCash would certainly be my next purchase if it's not the TREZOR. If by some special grace all the vendors implement #SmartCash, then the deciding factor would be the hardware wallet that allows the hosting #SmartNodes.
As a Certified Software Tester the product I am most intrudged by is Kaspersky's. I am keen to see how is it they are the first hardware wallet to implement any #Cryptonight coin? I want to see how the vault works and I want to see how the two factor authentication has been designed. Hey this is just me!
This is not a recommendation just a statement that technically I am more interested in the Kaspersky wallets.
