I am happy and proud to introduce Coldkey™ to you.
This project has been secretly taking shape over the last few months and is going forward quite nicely.
We are currently in the late stage of the development of our product. We will be probably able to start shipping sometime in June.

What is Coldkey ?
It is a cold storage wallet card. Each Coldkey is denominated in crypto and comes with that amount loaded onto it's key.
Coldkey cards have several security features that makes them very difficult to counterfeit and tamper with.
Coldkeys cards are also collectibles. Each of them is serialized and authenticable in an unique way.


(an early working prototype)

Authenticable ?
Under that black rectangle on the picture, there is a random string of character that is unique to each Coldkey. It is the AuthKey.
There will be two AuthKeys on each card. One that is printed in plain, and one that is hidden and made with UV.
You can easily check the association of the serial number and the AuthKey on our authentication tool :

https://auth.coldkey.eu
You can try with these data:
Serial : BITCOINTALK-TEST-0
AuthKey : aZ42b321

This way you can verify if the Coldkey card you hold is authentic, and it becomes even more difficult to counterfeit a large amount of Coldkey serial numbers.

Difficult to tamper with ?
Each private key is safely covered by a security hologram sticker.
This hologram is specially made for Coldkey. (Only early prototypes have a generic "SECURE" hologram used for testing)
The Coldkey card is then covered by a plastic layer that is pretty resistant. (> 5000 Taber cycles)
Some of the attack vectors against known collectible coins are not possible with Coldkeys.
The only way to redeem the card is by cutting right through it and peel the holo. The plastic film won't be an issue at that point.
It is equally cruel and cool to have to destroy the item to redeem it tho.


(Original pic uncompressed so you can try out the private key : https://i.imgur.com/R4lPji5.jpg)


(Some UV swag  Cool )

Pictures of prototypes shown at Coinfest UK :
(21 made and distributed during the convention)






We will be releasing loaded cards in batch on a regular basis, without limits in quantities, and occasionally some limited series as well.
Every important announcement regarding Coldkey will be made on this thread, which will also serve as a Reference thread.

Many things are probably missing here.
There is as well many surprises and improvements to come since the Coinfest prototypes.

Please visit our website for more informations : https://www.coldkey.eu

Special thanks to Polymerbit.
They helped us a lot by designing the Coldkey logo and providing a background for our prototypes.
Foreshadowing great collaborations, we are open and looking forward to work with Polymerbit on joint projects in the future !

Thank you very much for reading. We are looking forward to reply to your questions, and all ears about any suggestion you may have. Smiley

Love these YOGG!

“The root problem with conventional currency is all the trust that's required to make it work. The central bank must be trusted not to debase the currency, but the history of fiat currencies is full of breaches of that trust. Banks must be trusted to hold our money and transfer it electronically, but they lend it out in waves of credit bubbles with barely a fraction in reserve. We have to trust them with our privacy, trust them not to let identity thieves drain our accounts.” Satoshi Nakamoto

I can safely say these are very cool in hand.
I am testing their various properties from build to security qualities.
So far, the verdict is good.
They're VERY well made.

When, how much and both funded/unfunded will be avaible?  
They look pretty promising, I'm pretty eager to see where these lead.
The UV makes it pretty amazing aswell.

Thank you everyone for your kind words. Smiley
We've been working a lot on this project these last months. It's awesome to see such a great reaction !
Physicals really are one of the best ways to spread crypto around.

Looking very cool can already buy-order?

Thank you !
Unfortunately, not yet but keep an eye open. Smiley
We will probably announce and open pre-orders for our very first edition later in April.

When, how much and both funded/unfunded will be avaible? 

We are looking to start shipping in June, but nothing is set in stone as of now.
They will all be denominated, and carrying that amount.
We don't plan to release denominated "buyer funded" Coldkeys as of now.
So either unloaded "0 BTC" cards, or loaded ones.

I too, can vouch for the quality of this product after meeting with Yogg. I witnessed him getting grilled relentlessly from a couple of chaps regarding the security measures and he took it all in his stride and calmy answered everything. The manufacture quality on these is impeccable as well.

You did an amazing job!

Look how far you've come. I can't wait to see what is next!
