The KeepKey hardware wallet allows users to store their private keys offline and protect up to 54 cryptocurrency assets. It is one of the oldest and most secure hardware wallets in the world, reportedly never undergoing a security breach or hack. Whilst hackers found some sensitive information from staff emails/Twitter accounts, no wallets or user funds were ever compromised. Despite these features and security, it's also one of the most competitively priced products on the market, cheaper than all of their direct competitors.
Through integration with the ShapeShift cryptocurrency exchange, users can trade/exchange crypto-assets from their device. This gives users much more freedom and utility out of their wallet, whilst maintaining a high level of security. Although the 12-word recovery phrase is half as long as their competitors (Ledger/Trezor), this still proves secure and functions as intended; with users able to recover their account in the event of loss, theft or breakage. For beginners, the interface can prove a little difficult to use and may require some previous experience or a guide.
