Corazon: ‘Luxury’ Titanium-Grade Hardware Wallets
The Singapore-based manufacturer that creates custom Apple and Android mobile phone cases, Gray International, has partnered with the cryptocurrency company Satoshilabs. On Wednesday, the two businesses revealed a luxury grade series of hardware wallets called Corazon. The new devices are CNC machined using aerospace grade titanium that can withstand far more damage than traditional plastic and aluminum devices. The Corazon wallets are based on the Trezor Core firmware used in the company’s Trezor model T series. Just like a model T, the unit comes with a USB connector (type C to type A) and two recovery seeds. The new designer series Corazon model also serves as a password manager and a universal second-factor (U2F) token device as well.
The Corazon series is way more expensive than your average Nano or Trezor One, and almost three times the price of the Model T depending on which flavor of Corazon is chosen. The cheapest model is the basic gray colored titanium model for $696 per unit. The Corazon Stealth model ($996) is a limited edition piece with only 500 available and has a black physical vapor deposition (PVD) coating. The Corazon Gold version ($1,496) is also limited but to only 100 models and the device has a gold PVD coat instead of black.
“Each Corazon begins its life as a solid block of grade five aerospace titanium before being manufactured into its signature and attractive design,” explained Satoshilabs in an email to news.Bitcoin.com. “With special tamper-proof design, the device is impenetrable without compromising the external integrity — Audited by security researchers and verified by the stellar track record of Trezor, the Corazon’s technology is entirely open-source to be fully transparent, in line with Trezor security philosophy.”
