Security Statement

Bitcoin & blockchain-based digital currencies
represent a bold new phase in the history of money & banking.

For the first time in generations, cryptocurrency participants have demonstrated a greater level of trust in the blockchain community than in the modern banker. Seeking a brighter future, enthusiasts leave behind banking standards of fraud protection, chargeback protection, password recovery, & many other conveniences not yet available in the realm of cryptocurrencies.

The nature of distributed ledger technology means that account balances and transaction histories are permanently recorded across potentially millions of devices. But interacting with the blockchain requires some level of technical sophistication & a fundamental understanding of cryptology. In lieu of these skills, one must utilize and trust one or more third party community partners as intermediaries or access points, to acquire, trade or sell cryptocurrencies, all without the safety-nets afforded by the modern banking system. It’s exciting to know that people are so tired of central banking that they’re more willing to trust each other instead of those who make managing and safeguarding money their life’s work.

One must understand – “Decentralized Currency” is not synonymous with “risk-free”. In fact, it’s quite the opposite. For most, this is the first time participants get to decide how and where to take chances, using one’s own judgement and feedback of the bright blockchain community to help light the path. Sadly, it doesn’t always work out for the consumer. As the market evolves and continues to learn from mistakes, development of new and better ways to reduce risks continually makes adopting blockchain technology easier.

Today, there is no risk-free method of engaging Bitcoin. Every path you consider has some degree of risk. From hot wallet providers to online exchanges used to trade alt-coins, one’s experience and understanding is the best form of protection. Knowledge is power in the world of cryptocurrency and blockchain technology. The consumer is advised to be informed before making a decisions on how to safely participate. Common mistakes include losing cold storage keys or wallet passwords, computer hard disk failures without backups, USB device failures, storing value on an exchange that gets hacked or goes bankrupt, and even using a wallet provider with buggy, unsecure or hackable code. 

When we developed Cold Storage Coins, we took a hard look at these types of problems and developed what we believe to be the easiest & safest way to own Bitcoin.

The Virtually Indestructible Cold Storage Coin

If you’re going to hold Bitcoin for decades, obviously you want your storage to be reliable and damage resistant. And as we’ve seen, hard drives and paper wallets aren’t up for the task.

Of course, it’s only natural to wonder if Cold Storage Coins are too.

Because your private key is laser-etched into your coin, it’s impossible to lose – but does that mean it’s safe from corrosion, damage and the passage of time?

As you know, noble metals don’t corrode. But knowing that fact isn’t good enough for our team. After all, we’re not talking about normal coins are we? We’re talking about your physical Bitcoin. A coin will hold thousands, if not millions of dollars…testing is crucial.

Every year, we put thousands of Cold Storage Coins through the same strict testing used by the World’s most respected brands. So we guarantee your coin will withstand environmental stress, and accidental damage. From house-fires, and floods to earthquakes, nothing stands in the way of your Bitcoin investment.

Latest Insight in the Crypto World....

A Decentralized Vision

According to a recent survey, around 5% of Americans now hold or use Bitcoin. While this doesn’t exactly sound impressive, America isn’t the place that needs a decentralized currency the most. Countries in South America and Africa, mainly with unstable economies and heavily inflated currencies, are seeing a rapidly growing user base. Interestingly, Africans are…

Frequently Asked Questions...

A wallet is simply a way to send, receive or keep your cryptocurrency. Each wallet has a unique address. Each cryptocurrency has some form of client software similar to an email client that you download in order to send, received and keep your cryptocurrency. You can learn more about cryptocurrency wallets on the BitcoinWiki Wallet page.

Hot wallets are like a debit card account and cold wallets are savings accounts. One would keep a small amount of cryptocurrency in a hot wallet to shop and pay bills. Cold Storage is where a person would keep larger amounts of their digital currency they do not intend to immediately use. Cold storage is more difficult to access, and usually kept offline, not available to online theft. You can learn more about cold storage on the BitcoinWiki Cold Storage page.

In the past, the only way to store cyrptocurrency offline was by utilizing a paper wallet, a device like a USB drive, a sound file loaded on a CD or a hardware wallet (electronic device). Each of these traditional methods are delicate and can be easily damaged in fires, floods & natural disasters, or simply wear out over time. Further, many of these solutions make you dependant on 3rd party service providers, that may some day get hacked or go out of business, or cause your cold storage to become unavailable.

With Cold Storage Coins, everything you need to redeem your cryptocurrency is deeply laser-etched on the coin’s surface, hidden beneath a best-in-class tamper-evident holographic security seal. Nothing is required from us now, or in the future, to redeem your cryptocurrency asset. Cold Storage Coins are minted from investment-grade copper, silver or gold, and won’t rust, corrode or fail over time. They can withstand floods & temperatures in excess of normal house-fires.

Best of all, Cold Storage Coins are unique collectibles, unlikely to be carelessly discarded like old hard drives or scraps of paper.

NO! And PLEASE be careful! Keep your Cold Storage Coin somewhere safe…if you lose it, it’s GONE forever. There is no way to recover a Cold Storage Coin key.

We hate to say “it’s instant!”, but it’s really pretty quick. If you use a good hot wallet app, you’ll be able to quickly import the Cold Storage Coin wallet and spend right away from that address! Try it out and see just how fast it is!

No! Each Cold Storage Coin features a VERY specific wallet, securely generated for a specific blockchain. Be sure to check the currency identifier on secure hologram, and make sure it matches the type of cryptcurrency you’re about to store on the Cold Storage Coin.

Cold Storage Coins come in a variety of designs, each of which supports a different blockchain. So, be sure to select the Cold Storage Coin that suits your digital asset.

In the example of Ethereum-based smart contracts and tokens, our Ethereum product is able to accept many different types of these assets. Contact Us if you want to test an asset before sending to cold storage!

We’re adding support for new blockchains all the time, so keep an eye on our website for updates, in case we don’t offer the Cold Storage Coin you need just yet. Or of course, let us know what we should mint next!

Checking your Cold Storage Coin balance is easy! Simply scan your Cold Storage Coin with our free app and our system will scan the matching blockchain for the wallet balance.

Creating secure Cold Storage Coins is a very complex process that involves laser etching of a private key & private key QR code on every coin’s surface. The integrity of this process is paramount to our product’s success, and this production process is strictly overseen by our Managing Director. The keypair is generated on an offline computer, the lasers are run by computers that have never been online. Each computer is wiped clean using USA Department of Defense quality destruction methods. You can learn more about the steps we take to secure the sensitive information in our Security Statement.

Like an antique porcelain piggy bank, you can add onto your Cold Storage Coin as many times as you want. When you’re ready to “cash out”, instead of smashing it with a hammer, all you’ll need to do is peel off the security seal, clean the coin’s surface, and scan the QR code, importing your digital asset into the hot wallet of your choice. Once your private key has been scanned, your Cold Storage Coin is no longer secure and should be kept exclusively as a souvenir!

Not a great idea. Each Cold Storage Coin is designed for personal use by a single individual. We urge you to buy exclusively from Authorized Dealers, and add cryptocurrency to the Cold Storage Coin by way of a trusted app that you control. If you have an opportunity to purchase a pre-loaded Cold Storage Coin, redeem the value immediately, preferably before you part ways with any cash.

Each Cold Storage Coin features a unique, laser-etched private key. The public key is encapsulated in a QR code, and printed on each coin’s security seal. If for some reason your coin QR code becomes damaged or unreadable, you can lookup your coin’s public key using one of our online tools.

Safety & Best Practices...

Once you load your Cold Storage Coin®, keep it someplace safe! With Cold Storage Coins®, you’re converting digital risk into physical risk; it’s very important to store your Cold Storage Coin® somewhere it won’t be lost or stolen.

The Cold Storage Coins® app is a great way to keep track of your coins & values. You can add value, redeem & set notifications based on your performance goals.

With digital currencies rapidly developing and improving, new opportunties emerge on a regular basis. Keep up with industry news & consider spreading your eggs across multiple baskets. We make Cold Storage Coins® for many different blockchains.

There are no refunds, chargebacks or fraud protections in the world of digital currency. Chances are good a bad decision can’t be undone! Exercise caution & prudence at all times.

Like many other bleeding-edge technologies, the value of Bitcoin & other digital currencies is extremely volatile, and can fluctuate dozens of percent on a daily basis. No one knows what it’ll be worth in 1 month or 1 year – it could be priceless, or worth nothing at all.

Your Cold Storage Coin® is an easy way to keep your digital currency safe. But once you peel off the security seal & scan the laser-etched private key, that secret info is no longer secure. Acquire a new Cold Storage Coin® and start over to keep your asset as safe as can be!

The more you learn about digital currency, the more exciting it is! But, there are plenty of horror stories to learn from. Even the experts fall victim from time to time. If something is new, untested or looks too good to be true, be extra careful before taking on the risk.

Always use Cold Storage Coins® to keep assets safe when not trading online.

How to Add Value:

How to Redeem Value:

Redeeming your Cold Storage Coin is just about as easy as adding value. But again, there are a few important steps you can take to ensure your cryptocurrency is easy to redeem.

Here are a few simple reminders to get you started:

  • do NOT use any sharp objects or abrasives to clean the coin
  • we made the security seal very tamper resistant and difficult to remove – don’t be surprised if you need to clean the coin surface before scanning the QR code. WD-40 acts as a quick and easy solvent – works in seconds!
  • if you’re having trouble scanning the QR code, simply type the text into a QR code generator to create a scannable QR – case sensitive!
  • the coin scans best on a quality phone in good lighting conditions – get a nice contrast for easy scanning.
