Yes. The TAP Wallet works in conjunction with software running on most popular computers (Windows/Mac) and smartphones (iOS/Android). It is used to securely store and access private keys that provide access to coin wallets.
For security, each card is formatted for a single account/wallet address.
There is no limit to the number of accounts. A single card is required for each.
Cards are available directly from our online store.
Power & Batteries
The device does not have to be 'plugged in' for operation. However, its onboard battery needs to be recharged from time to time.
A rechargeable battery is included and will, in regular use, last for several weeks. Charging can be carried out in a matter of hours when connected to a computer or with a standard 5V USB charger.
Privacy & Security
TAP Wallet and cards use secure smartcard technology that has been well tested and trusted by the banking industry and government institutions. Both the Wallet and cards are protected with PIN and biometrics.
No, registration is optional. However, it does help us keep in touch with you and notify you of new features when available.
Because keys are stored on cards rather than the device itself, nothing will be lost if the device is lost or stolen provided you still have the cards in your possession. In addition, you can backup each card to one ore more duplicates for safekeeping.
Each card is protected with a PIN of your choosing. If lost or stolen, the keys are still secure. In addition, any card can be duplicated using the Wallet for safekeeping.
The TAP Wallet does not require storage of a 'recovery seed' - which is a weak link of other 'hard' wallets.
The TAP Wallet device is just a little larger than a standard credit/debit card, but considerably thicker.
Included in the box is the device, smartcard and charging/connection cable - all you need to get started.
Yes. The device is small and light enough to be easily carried, but not so small as to be easily lost or misplaced.
Currencies & Soft Wallets
At launch, the TAP Wallet can store Bitcoin, Ether, Dash and Litecoin, with more to follow.
We're working on integrating the Wallet with several of the leading online wallet solutions, and will have our own available also.
A variety of cases will be available in a range of colors and materials. Several mounting options will also be available.
