New Bitcoin Wallet Features Plausible Deniability

Bitcoiners worry about this, too. On forums where enthusiasts of the cryptocurrency hang out, a popular refrain for some is: “if someone had a gun to your head, you’d probably give up your bitcoin wallet private key.”

Fair enough. But a particular bitcoin hardware wallet, which boasts some of the space’s most experienced coders, thinks it has found somewhat of a technical solution to this age-old conundrum.

The wallet, Digital Bitbox, features plausible deniability as part of its operations. So, what if a government, bully or cold-blooded criminal tries to force you to open your bitcoin wallet?

I very much enjoy what are called "hidden wallets" using my Trezor + Electrum and long passwords.  But, remember this is only a part of the equation.  Regardless of how sneaky any wallet software is, if you don't utilize the proper internet connectivity when you use it you are easily UNMASKED.  I personally welcome any bitcoin wallet product that assists a user with hiding a wallet.  Ample use of a decoy wallet(s) is nice!  I may download this wallet and give it a look just for grins.  Thanks.
