KeepKey, the security-focused Bitcoin hardware wallet, has implemented an integration with privacy-focused cryptocurrency Dash. This means users will be able to store Dash on the KeepKey device, and through the inbuilt ShapeShift function, swap between other cryptocurrencies like Dash, Bitcoin, Litecoin, Dogecoin, Namecoin and Ethereum.

CEO of KeepKey Darin Stanchfield said: “Partnering with Dash is the natural next step for KeepKey since our wallet is purely focused on security, mobility and convenience; attributes that Dash shares. KeepKey protects digital assets from hackers by limiting their exposure to the internet. With this integration, we are extending our utility, and adding one more asset users can transfer to or from directly on our device.”

Dash Director of Finance Ryan Taylor commented: “We partnered with KeepKey because we aim to create the best overall experience for our users. The peace of mind and convenience that KeepKey can provide makes them a valuable addition to our family of partners. Their products also align well with our belief that the user experience should be a focus.”
This beta release means that KeepKey users will be able to receive, store and send Dash on their device, however Dash’s PrivateSend and InstantSend functions will not yet be supported.
“We like to listen to the community and implement new technology in response to community requests and feedback. While hacks in today’s global information age are pervasive, and so too is the rise of cryptocurrency, more and more people are investing in a digital vault for their valuable cryptocurrencies. Crypto assets vary in their characteristics, and attract the use of different audiences for different reasons. One thing we are certain of though is the trend for investing and holding multiple types of assets is becoming increasingly popular and KeepKey helps makes this both simpler and safer,” Stanchfield added.
