NeoCash Reviews Cryptocurrency Hardware Wallets

Let’s start by discussing how crypto wallets work and why they should be used.  The private keys to any cryptocurrency are used to both generate the wallet addresses as well as authorizing the transfer of coins.  Anyone with the private keys can spend from that wallet and this is why it is critical to keep these private keys off line and secure for any wallet with significant funds.  While mobile devices are great for convenience, think of them as your physical traditional wallet that contains cash, it should only have amounts you can live with losing.

Securing your private keys can be done with using a hardware wallet that keeps your private keys offline in a secure area of the device. These private keys can never leave the device so in order to spend funds, an unsigned transaction is sent to the device where you have to physically press a button that will allow the device to sign the transaction with the private key.  The signed transaction can then be broadcast without fear the private keys were ever exposed.

Hardware wallets are backed up with a 12 or 24 word passphrase which is the “backup” of the wallet.  Multiple copies of these should be secured in multiple locations. The passphrase should never be photographed, typed into any digital document, or photocopied.  Additionally, with these Hardware wallets you compare the address funds are being sent to with the address that will be displayed on the device. This protects you in case someone compromised the java code or app that is used for wallet functions on your computer

When purchasing any of these hardware wallets, it’s recommended to do so from either the manufacturer or a reputable vendor like Amazon.  Someone who purchased a Nano Ledger S from ebay lost funds because the scammer generated a key and then made the backup card look like a “scratch off” to reveal a unique private key.  All of these hardware wallets should be initialized and a new seed generated.

Be sure to store multiple copies of your seed phrase in multiple locations!

Any one of these wallets will secure the private keys to the coins they support and are much more secure than keeping private keys on computers & mobile devices.  If the hardware wallet is lost or destroyed, they can be restored using the backup passphrase.

Monaco Interview with CEO Kris Marszalek

Matt and JJ interview Monaco Co-Founder and CEO Kris Marszalek. Monaco is a crypto and fiat wallet linked up with a debit card. The ERC20 MCO token is both a cash-back reward mechanic and another cryptocurrency spendable through the Monaco card. Monaco’s token and token sale is based out of Zug, Switzerland while the HQ is in Hong Kong.

Kris outlines how Monaco is focused on competing with traditional banking institutions and how the product line is inspired by Apple’s simplistic design philosophy. We discuss the VISA Program Manager situation and when cards will be available worldwide. Finally we cover a few mechanisms in place that could impact the MCO token price.

Centra Card Interview with President Sam Sharma

Update April 3rd 2018:  The SEC has charged Centra founders with fraud.  Be careful!

In this special episode of Neocash Radio JJ interviews Sam Sharma the co-founder and president of Centra. The Centra Card is a cryptocurrency based debit card that will allow users to spend Bitcoin, Dash, Ether, ERC 20 tokens, Ripple, Zcash, Monero, and Litecoin. US customers would receive a VISA card and international customers would receive a MASTERCARD — the Centra Card would be linked to a wallet app which could be loaded with crypto.

Sam describes his personal experience with crypto and how the Centra company has been self-funded thus far. After operating for more than a year in secret the company announced their presence in July.

The product is currently running a beta test and will be launched before the end of the year. The CTR token sale is ongoing as of this posting. Centra’s CTR token would facilitate rewards for cardholders and token holders alike — much like other crypto debit cards.

Finally Centra is also building a cryptocurrency based marketplace called C-Bay. Sam indicates that at launch there will be more than 100,000 products available for purchase.

The Tokes Platform Interview with Michael and Gabriel

JJ interviews Michael Wagner and Gabriel Allred. We explore The Cannabis Revolution, powered by the Tokes Platform, it is a cannabis business and social movement using cryptocurrency and blockchain based technologies to further cultural acceptance of marijuana legalization.

We start out at the beginning with what inspired the idea and talk about the many parts of the Tokes Platform. We talk about their experience using the Waves platform. Most legal cannabis businesses are unbanked given the disconnect between the States and Federal government over marijuana policy. This is one use case for cryptocurrencies that can really take off.

Storing Ethereum-based tokens (Golem, REP, etc.) on a hardware wallet

If you’ve been loyally listening to the Neocash Radio podcast over the past four years, you’ve undoubtedly heard us talking about using hardware wallets for cryptocurrency security. Near the end of Wednesday’s podcast, Randy made mention of some tools that Pedro showed him which allow users to hold Ethereum-based tokens—like Golem Network Tokens (GNT), Augur (REP) tokens, SingularDTV (SNGLS) tokens, etc.—on a hardware wallet. Randy said he’d make a post about it for the blog later in the week and well, here we are!

Comparing Bitcoin hardware wallets: KeepKey, Ledger Nano S, Trezor. Generating offline wallets for DASH, Ethereum, Bitcoin, Zcash, and more. Secure cold storage with plausible deniability.

KeepKey hardware wallet for BTC, ETH, DASH, and other cryptocurrencies

Trezor, KeepKey, and Ledger are the most popular brands of hardware wallets currently.

Tokens built to utilize the Ethereum blockchain conform to a “token standard” called ERC20; this standard ensures that wallet apps, exchanges, etc. can accept and interact with any ERC20 token, all without having to code unique integrations for each new token system.

Some of these tokens can be purchased using ShapeShift.io or OpenLedger; others can be found at decentralized exchanges like cryptoderivatives.market. When you purchase these tokens, a smart contract grants ownership of them to your Ethereum address. But as of the writing of this post, the wallet apps provided by the hardware wallet manufacturers don’t display token balances as part of your ETH holdings. Continue reading
