How To Store Your Bitcoin – Bitcoin Magazine

Listen to this Episode:

This week for the “Bitcoin Magazine Podcast,” Christian Keroles sat down with Bitcoiner and builder Douglas Bakkum. Bakkum is the CEO and cofounder of hardware wallet maker Shift Crypto. He and his team have been working hard at a very early stage to create a hardware wallet experience that is suitable for newbies but has the most important advanced features for sovereignty, security and maximum trust.

This was a very broad talk covering the history of Bakkum, the inspiration for Shift Crypto, the BitBox02 and everything about cold storage and bitcoin custody.

The conversation went quite technical, covering the nuances around a UX wallet and new innovations around multi-rock. Bakkum is hopeful for a multi-rock future but is also skeptical of people embracing it too early. There are still many kinks that need to be resolved, according to Bakkum, though Bitcoin multisig has improved tremendously.
