the first hardware wallet for crypto-assets
embedding a secured services platform
Paris – Tuesday, September 25th, 2018 – ARCHOS today announces the launch in January 2019 of its Safe-T Touch, the first secure hardware wallet with a touchscreen, featuring an Android interface and integrated services platform, for those who already hold crypto-currencies or who wish to open an account in crypto-assets.
“We want to democratize crypto-currencies, make information accessible, facilitate and secure exchanges to offer a turnkey solution to users,” says Loic Poirier, CEO of ARCHOS.
Crypto-assets are currencies still difficult to understand
The public has not yet adopted cryptocurrencies for the following reasons:
- How to buy crypto-assets and then how to exchange them for other currencies or to convert them into Euros?
- How to identify the transaction fees to be paid?
- Which platforms to use? How to be safe and avoid cyber criminality?
- How to maximize ROI with the launch of new cryptocurrencies and tokens?
- How to check all transactions from a single portfolio and benefit from additional services?
ARCHOS has designed the Safe-T Touch to answer these questions by offering a 100% integrated solution:
The ARCHOS Safe-T Touch is fully secured:
Designed in partnership with Prove & Run, the device embeds a secure, transaction-specific execution area, isolated from the Google Android operating system thanks to ProvenCore, the ultra-secure Prove & Run’s TEE providing an unrivaled level of security.
It sports a fingerprint reader to authenticate its holder.
The device is never directly connected to the Internet: it only synchronizes with secured Bluetooth at the explicit request of its owner.
The ARCHOS Safe-T Touch will be an “All-in One” device:
Fully touch screen, the Safe-T Touch will provide a complete ecosystem enabling a full range of services: initiate and receive transactions, check balances and currencies’ evolutions and also exchange crypto-assets.
The official launch of the ARCHOS Safe-T Touch will take place at CES 2019 (January 8-11, 2019, Las Vegas, USA).
ARCHOS also considers accelerating the promotion of its Safe-T Touch and its integrated services platform towards the community of crypto-assets’ traders and fans by creating and animating an innovative recruitment program within the framework of an ICO.
