Tangem and SHIB Token Announce Pre-Order Date for Cold Wallets
Tangem and Shiba Inu Token (SHIB) have announced the official pre-order date for SHIB cold wallets, a card-shaped physical wallet that will support all currently launched tokens of the Shiba Inu Ecosystem: SHIB, BONE, and LEASH. The pre-order will be available on May 29th, 2023. The collaboration between Tangem, an experienced blockchain hardware manufacturer from Switzerland, and SHIB Token is seen as a way to curb phishing scams that have been prevalent in the cryptocurrency world in recent years.
Why Cold Storage Solutions Matter
Cold storage solutions are important tools for cryptocurrency adoption because they provide a safer alternative to hot wallets. With no connection to the internet, hackers would have a much harder time draining your wallet if it was stored offline. Over 99% of successful phishing attacks in 2022 were carried out online which makes having an offline storage option even more beneficial for crypto users.
Limitations Of Pre-Order
It’s important to note that there is currently limited availability of the pre-order with only 2000 wallets available at this time. Additionally, there is no info on compatibility with Shibarium’s mainnet at this time.
Reactions To Pre-Order Announcement
Reactions to the pre-order announcement have been positive overall with many eager crypto enthusiasts jumping on the waiting list so they can be one of the first people to get their hands on one of these coveted devices once released.
The upcoming release of SHIB cold wallets promises to provide users with another layer of security against malicious phishing attacks while also making it easier than ever before for users to store their cryptocurrencies safely offline without having to worry about their funds being compromised by hackers online.
