WISeKey (SIX:WIHN) Releases WISeWallet App V1.0 that Syncs with WISeCoin Contactless Hardware to Offer Security and Ease of Use for #Cryptocurrency Users
ZUG, GENEVA, Switzerland - March 16, 2018 (Investorideas.com Newswire) WISeKey International Holding Ltd (WISeKey) (SIX:WIHN), a leading Swiss cybersecurity and IoT solutions company, announced the release of the WISeWallet App V1.0. WISeWallet provides a unique hardware contactless protection solution to secure personal cryptocurrencies and exchange wallets.
To empower a seamless cryptocurrency enabled economy, WISeWallet is supplemented with highly secured solutions such as biometrics-driven hardware wallets, integrated exchange platforms, MicroChips Blockchain enabled semiconductors, and Near Field Communication (NFC) based contactless payment solutions. WISeKey's objective with WISeCoin is to become an emerging powerhouse in the global cryptocurrency market by supporting the development of economies built on Blockchain technology.
The WISeCoin contactless hardware wallet holds a private key that is uniquely identifiable and used to authorized access to the Software wallet application. When associated with a personal identity, the user of that identity becomes the owner of the Coin and hence is granted right to the cryptocurrency associated with the private key. Any sensitive transaction will be automatically digitally signed by both, the owner and the coin's private key.

WISeCoin provides users with contactless access to their private key and allows them to make contactless transactions and payments. WISeCoin uses a combination of NFC based technology with highly secured solutions provided by the WISeKey Semiconductors and is now available through the WISeWallet App. Every time a contactless Blockchain transaction is made, such as a Bitcoin transaction, the private key is fetched from a Secure Hardware storage to enable the transaction. None of the private keys are compromised as they never leave a secure hardware module (HSM).
While the exchanges and software wallets continue to get hacked, the hardware wallets have gained popularity as they are providing the most secure solution for transaction and payments. Through the WISeCoin hardware, users can establish multiple private keys into the secure store using the same WISeWallet App and access these private keys while making transactions in contactless mode.
The WISeWallet App is compatible with most of the existing blockchain technologies and works as part of payment system using WISeKey Blockchain-as-a-Service ("BaaS") technology offerings. To empower a seamless cryptocurrency enabled economy, WISeCoin is supplemented with additional highly secured WISeWallet solutions (biometrics enabled variants also available), integrated exchange platforms, NFC-based contactless payment solutions, etc. WISeKey's objective is for WISeCoin to become an emerging powerhouse in the global cryptocurrency market by supporting the development of economies built on Blockchain technology.
While all these security and ease of use features are very important, there has to be a proper recovery option for the wallet when the hardware storage is lost, broken or stolen. Thus, a backup copy of all private keys is stored in the military grade bunkers in the Swiss Alps with proper Hardware Security Module (HSM) and sophisticated recovery mechanisms are in place for a reliable and consistent Wallet solution.
