What is KeepKey?
KeepKey is a cold storage wallet for cryptocurrencies and Web3 dapps.
As with other cold wallets, buying a KeepKey will give you a hardware device which will offer a security check every single time you want to spend crypto or perform a key wallet action in Web3.
Generally speaking, these kind of cold wallets are much safer than the hot wallet browser extensions we're used to.
KeepKey is developed by the team at ShapeShift as is a seamless integration with their dashboard and defi platform.
What problem does KeepKey solve?
It's a sad thing to say, but the scams in cryptocurrency are far too frequent and costly.
Often, these scams are aimed not at the infrastructure or large platforms (they sometimes are), but at the people aho are using and helping grow the crypto community.
A hot wallet, like a MetaMask is connected to the internet whenever you are.
To complete a transaction, all of the necessary steps from generating and storing private keys to digitally signing the transaction are completed and broadcast from a single device.
If there is any weakness in that device or the network it's broadcasting to, a hacker can pick up the key details to gain control of the wallet.
This is the weakness cold wallets like KeepKey are looking to solve.
With KeepKey, your private keys needed to sign a transaction are kept offline.
It means that even if someone were to gain access to your primary device, they wouldn't get access to your private keys as they're not connected to the same network.
It keeps your crypto safe and gives you full control of your assets.
