Hello Bitcointalk!

We are CryoBit and today we are introducing ourselves to the Bitcointalk community after having a successful soft launch last week. If you didn’t see us on Reddit or Twitter last week, our story is basically this - we saw a need for ultra durable cold storage products that also took trust out of the equation. Some, or maybe all, of the bitcoins you take offline may be for a long period of time and ultimately you can’t trust paper wallets, or electronics for that matter, to survive the perils of the real world. A small flood ruined one of our paper wallets and lost some of our coins. Fortunately, that event was the catalyst that started us on the path to the products we will be showing you guys today.

After paper, plastic and aluminum cold storage products can get the job done for some people. However, we wanted something that could withstand almost anything we could think of; fire, flood, abrasion, acid, chemicals, physical and digital theft, etc. There are many new and exotic materials that can accomplish this task, but we kept coming back to something that our co-founder has worked with nearly every day in the field of Aerospace engineering; Stainless Steel.

Our debut product is called Cryo Card. It is credit card sized (3.125x2.25in) and constructed of .029 inch thick AMS 5524 Stainless Steel with a high-contrast ceramic-glass etch. This gives Cryo Card a temperature resistance of up to 2500°F (1370°C), effectively making it house fire proof. We shot a quick video that shows what happened when we blasted an early Cryo Card prototype with a propane torch until it was white hot (the maximum temperature that a propane torch can reach in air is 3623°F or 1995°C):

We plan on doing many more demonstrations like this in the future including scratch and long term saltwater immersion tests, so keep an eye on our Twitter feed (@CryoBit) or our site (https://www.cryobit.co) for all the latest news. We will also be sure to update everyone on Bitcointalk here in this thread!

One more thing, Cryo Card was engineered to withstand the ultimate enemy of Bitcoin cold storage – trust. Utilizing offline AES-256 (BIP 0038) encryption, your newly generated or existing Private Key can never be known to us or any other entity that does not know your personally chosen passphrase. The encryption process is performed in your own browser through bitaddress.org – not on our servers – so your passphrase is never seen by us. You can even disconnect your device from the Internet while generating and encrypting a new encrypted Private Key (or encrypting an existing one) and re-connect to complete your order. This can help to ensure that your Private Key and chosen passphrase are not potentially compromised. We also accept previously encrypted Private Keys for new orders. We will not accept unencrypted Keys for any Cryo Card order as we want to maintain a barrier between us and the customer and eliminate the need for trust.

As BTC marches toward its next bubble, what better time to insure your investment completely against fire, flood, theft, trust and the unknown? We know there have been some failures and scams in this area of products before. But rest assured, we are a registered business in the state of Florida in the United States and are based there as well. Our co-founders' bios are also listed on the About Us page of our site. We would also be happy to send one of our Cryo Cards to a mod, but for those that are interested now please check it out at:

If you're not interested in any of our products at the moment but want to keep up to date with where the ride goes with us then please follow us @CryoBit or on Facebook at /cryobit

We offer free shipping to the United States via First Class mail, but also ship worldwide at the standard rates USPS charges.

Please feel free to ask any questions and we are always open to suggestions!

10 Day Saltwater Corrosion Resistance Test Update!

Last Sunday we set out for the east coast of Florida to collect a little saltwater from the saltiest ocean in the world, the Atlantic. If you didn't already know, saltwater is much more corrosive than fresh water since it has a greater electrical conductivity value due to the number of dissociated ions present in the salt.

We placed a Cryo Card prototype in a glass tupperware container with the collected saltwater. Here is a quick video of our trip:

The date of our trip:

And now some pictures of the Cryo Card prototype after 10 days

Cryo Card has been in the saltwater container at room temperature ~75° F for almost 10 full days now

We will continue to post updates on Cryo Card's superior corrosion, heat, and scratch resistance on a weekly basis. If you missed it, be sure to check out our high temperature propane torch test!

How much per card?  Per 10?

The 2-sided wallet cards are priced at $30, and the public address or passphrase only (1-side) cards are $20. If you order 5 or more, you'll get 10% off the entire order. If you order 10 or more, you'll get 20% off!

45 Day Saltwater Corrosion Resistance Test Update!
https://www.cryobit.co

On Sunday, May 11, we set out for the east coast of Florida to collect a little saltwater from the saltiest ocean in the world, the Atlantic, in order to test Cryo Card's superior saltwater corrosion resistance.

We placed a Cryo Card prototype in a glass tupperware container with the collected saltwater. Here is a quick video of our trip if you missed it in the post above:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vOmf_I7VxAA

The date of our trip:

Pictures of Cryo Card prototype after 45 days immersed in Atlantic Ocean saltwater!

Cryo Card has been in the saltwater container at room temperature (~75°F) for nearly 45 full days now:

Performing as it was designed; no rust, corrosion, or even light tea-staining visible. Ah, the wonders of modern aerospace/marine-grade stainless steel...

http://i.imgur.com/Wqx00mgl.jpg


It is simply incredible for Cryo Card to be immersed in the world's saltiest ocean water for 45 days and still look like it did the day it was produced. But as expected, Cryo Card continues to prove its claim as the ultimate cold storage solution for all crypto-currencies.

https://www.cryobit.co/cold-storage-products/cryo-card/

We will continue to post updates on Cryo Card's superior corrosion, heat, and scratch resistance on a routine basis. Our next corrosion resistance update will be at 60 days (2 months) of immersion in saltwater. And as always, please feel free to comment and ask questions in this thread! Or follow us at:

Hi, I'm just posting a reply in case someone is considering buying one of their product (Cryobit). They've taken my order but I haven't receive any news or feedback for a month. After sending an email to the customer to get some feedback I'm still waiting for an answer so I'm pretty sure this is not a legit business. My money might be gone but at least I get to warn the community. Don't buy from them!

An update post as I've just received my order today... So it's not a scam but the delays are just insanely long (ordered on the 30th of Nov. 2017 - received it on the 19th of Jan. 2018) and customer support is non existent (two emails - no answer). But the quality of the product is really good so for some that might be worth the wait Wink
