CoinCase claims to be the world’s first case for hardware wallets. Find out how it works today in our review.
What is CoinCase?
CoinCase is a physical wooden case designed to hold your cryptocurrency hardware wallets.
The campaign to produce and launch CoinCase appeared on Kickstarter in April 2018. The Germany-based team is seeking to raise 15,000 EUR to produce the product.
CoinCase is handcrafted and made from wood. The case is specifically designed to hold your Trezor wallet or your Ledger Nano S wallet (you can choose which wallet you use at checkout). With CoinCase, you can keep your wallet in a unique and beautiful place for easy storage. You don’t have to leave it in a cluttered drawer, attach it to your keychain, or let it sit in a safe.
Each CoinCase box is priced at 99 EUR. Shipping is available to most countries worldwide. The team expects to start shipping its first units in June 2018.
How Does CoinCase Work?
CoinCase is completely designed and manufactured in Germany. The box is approximately the size of two decks of cards stacked on top of one another.
Each case is cut out of a single piece of nut wood. All cases are made from the same premium-quality nut wood. The boxes are built to last “for generations”.
There are two options available, with each case having different interior inlays based on your wallet. You can purchase the Trezor CoinCase or the Ledger Nano S CoinCase.
The case has magnets on the cover that keep the case securely closed. There’s also storage space within the case for additional items – like a cable for your wallet or other valuable items.
Meanwhile, the bitcoin logo (the “B” with two vertical lines through it) is engraved on the cover of the CoinCase case – telling everybody that your bitcoin wallet can be found inside.
The CoinCase team has already created a functional prototype. You can see photos and videos of that functional prototype on the official CoinCase Kickstarter page.
Who’s Behind CoinCase?
CoinCase was created by Mirkan Akif Cetinkaya and Ali Can Turan, two German entrepreneurs based in the city of Lemgo, Germany.
The Kickstarter campaign appeared online in April 2018. As of April 17, the project has received 605 EUR of its 15,000 EUR goal. The campaign will end in May 2018, with the first units expected to ship in June.
CoinCase is priced at a flat rate of 99 EUR. The price is the same for the Trezor and Ledger versions.
The company aims to ship its first units by June 2018. Shipping is available to all EU countries, the United States, the UK, Canada, Australia, China, Japan, India, Singapore, Saudi Arabia, Switzerland, Liechtenstein, Turkey, Hong Kong, Norway, UAE, and south Korea.
CoinCase is a custom wooden case designed to securely hold your cryptocurrency wallet. The case is specifically designed for either the Trezor or the Ledger Nano S (two kit options are available). All cases are carved out of a single piece of nut wood. The wood is carved by hand, with a custom lining inside to support your cryptocurrency wallet. The outside of the box features a large bitcoin logo.
CoinCase is being sold for 99 EUR with an estimated shipping date of June 2018. You can view the Kickstarter page for the project here.
