Bitkey is a self-custody bitcoin signing device produced by Block. It comes with an app, hardware, and recovery tools.

Block Starts Shipping Its Bitkey Wallet
  • "The Bitkey wallet is officially out of pre-orders and is now shipping to your doorstep," Bitkey announced in a blog post.
  • "As the team continues to build a better and safer way to self-custody, we’d love to hear your thoughts and feedback."
  • "Since launching pre-orders in December, the Bitkey team has been hard at work building additional features while putting the final touches to the Bitkey app (available for download in the Apple App Store and Google Play Store). "

What's new

  • Recovery. "Even if customers lose both their phone and their Bitkey hardware, simple recovery tools like Trusted Contacts allow customers to safely recover their funds by relying on the people they know to help verify their recovery request."
  • Control. "Additional features like Emergency Access provide customers with a guaranteed way to retain control of their funds even if the Bitkey app (and the Bitkey team) were to disappear."
  • Convenience. "Through our global partnerships with Cash App and Coinbase, customers can now easily and safely transfer and buy bitcoin using our partner’s platforms directly within the Bitkey app."
