Grid+ gives the world a preview of Lattice1, a hardware wallet with capabilities that can manage cryptocurrencies and digital identities

According to Grid+, there are two crucial aspects needed to be dealt with before blockchain can achieve a wider adoption. The two aspects are scalability and usability.

The hardware wallet is to be paired with the Grid+Pay mobile app, thus creating a hardware/software ecosystem.

Joseph Lubin hails Grid+, on Twitter, as an innovator in the blockchain industry; he also gives Lattice1 a shout-out.

Safe Cards

The use of Safe Card is one of the most essential properties of Lattice1. It is an offline, secure, and portable storage and restoration solution. Safe Cards are smart cards that act as an instrument for secure key management and account backup. A card slot is integrated in the hardware wallet that permits the user to switch between cards securely.

For those who are anticipating Lattice1, the expected time for the devices to be shipped out is in the first quarter of 2019.

Bitcoin Cash’s [BCH] Roger Ver calls out Coinbase, Binance’s crypto-wallets

Roger Ver, well-known Bitcoin Cash [BCH] enthusiast and CEO of Bitcoin.com has been quite vocal about cryptocurrency exchanges that hold users’ private keys, urging users to not trust these platforms. In a recent talk session with FUD TV, Ver shared a similar sentiment, while revealing his list of top crypto-wallets. Clarifying the difference between what he considers an “actual wallet” where users control their private keys and a wallet where they don’t, Ver said that the latter “cannot be considered” a wallet in the real sense. He said, “If you don’t have your keys, you don’t have your coin.” According to the Bitcoin fork coin proponent, Blockchain.com is the top cryptocurrency wallet, which notably had over 37 million wallet users. Ver also spoke positively about Bitcoin.com’s wallet, which the CEO had previously called safer than the wallets of Coinbase and Binance. The CEO boasted, ” .. we are the second most popular wallet software in the entire world second only to blockchain and of course when it comes to buying and selling cryptocurrencies you have to be able to do that” The other two crypto-wallets on Ver’s ‘safe list’ were Binance and Coinbase. Despite calling them non-wallets and not as safe, Ver said that both exchanges had provided users with seamless channels to easily trade cryptocurrencies than any other cryptocurrency exchange. Ver concluded by saying that the fifth best platform on his list was the Atlanta-based, Bitcoin payment service provider, Bitpay, which had enabled millions of people around the world to trade in digital assets.
