KeepKey is a new hardware wallet which allows you to store your cryptocurrencies. It was developed in the United States and was recently acquired by ShapeShift AG which is a leading Swiss digital asset exchange.
KeepKey Classic and KeepKey Gold allow you to store multiple different cryptocurrencies on a hardware wallet which is virus- and malware proof. The device itself works on PC, Mac, Linux and Android devices and was developed to provide users with a secure and easy-to-use hardware wallet.
KeepKey is a rather new but already highly reputable company. Due to their recent cooperation with ShapeShift it is to be expected that the company grow even faster. Their product was developed in 2014 and was quickly considered to be one of the safest hardware wallets.
The KeepKey firmware is completely open source which means that certain bugs or flaws can be recognized by the community within the blink of an eye.
Moreover KeepKey is using the STM32F205RGT6 MCU from STMicroelectronics and has received certifications FIPS PUB 140-2, and FIPS PUB 180-2.
The hardware wallet is not exposing your private data at any time. The micro-controller in KeepKey is set to the highest level of read protection which was added while it was manufactured. Only the actual device owner can access the data through his personal PIN.
Your private key is stored securely on your device and it never leaves it under any circumstances.
The KeepKey device can be ordered in black or gold. Both offer the same functionalities. They just differ in terms of color and price.
The KeepKey is one of the most secure Bitcoin hardware wallets available in the crypto market. Each and every transaction you make must be reviewed and approved by its OLED display and confirmation button. Have a look into the specs:

The hardware wallet is currently available in two different shops: the KeepKey shop and Amazon.
The KeepKey Gold hardware wallet is only available in the company's store. It is a Gold version of the hardware wallet but does not provide any additional features compared to the Classic. It is basically a nice looking version of an already great device.

The KeepKey hardware wallet is one of the safest devices to store your coins. It features a nice and easy-to-use interface which can be accessed through basically every modern operating system.
The device itself is looking absolutely amazing. It has a high-quality display and is made of solid, but light material and can be purchased in two different colors.
Currently, you can store six different cryptocurrencies on this hardware wallet. In the near future many other currencies will be added as well, which makes this hardware wallet a great choice if you like to diversify your portfolio and want to keep them in one space.
Our main point of criticism is the price. At the moment, you have to pay $129 for the KeepKey Classic version and $149 for the Keepkey Gold version.
We recommend ordering many devices (for family & friends) as the shipping costs per order are relatively high.
