Dear friends,

We are closing a year that marked our lives.

We saw a deadly virus span into a worldwide pandemic; we lost some of our venerated icons and loved ones; we witnessed cities burn, and our hearts broke watching neighbours fight against each other. We have seen a global shift in the way we relate, live and work. Despite the adversities faced during 2020, at this moment, we feel fortunate and very grateful.

HASHWallet started as an idea way back late 2018, but it was in February 2020 when The National Cybersecurity Institute, INCIBE, awarded us the most innovative Spanish start-up. Soon, major media publishers (Bitcoin.com, Coinspeaker, The Merkle, Coin Telegraph, Blockonomy, CoinTalk, Investing.com, etc.) and proof-of-concept certifiers like Arrow featured HASHWallet as “one of the outstanding innovative technology in the crypto space”. …

Dear supporter,

It’s been a while since our latest project update. In eSignus, we are very grateful for all the support received from our community; your help is moving the HASHWallet project forward and will make it happen very soon. Your support is especially meaningful to us in these challenging times that all of us had to face.

What are we dealing with

2020 is turning out to be a strange year, to say the least. The pandemic has affected us all globally and has triggered a ripple effect on our supply chain. Although we have tried to keep the momentum going from the beginning, the coronavirus has hit hard, especially in Europe, where the eSignus team and its main partners operate. …

Here at eSignus, our team is focused on creating new tools that facilitate the cryptocurrency mass adoption. HASHWallet is our first step to extend the crypto landscape and we want you to know the full picture.

Why are cryptos not used by everybody? We, believers, all know cryptos will free us from the government’s surveillance, even more with the digital currencies promoted from the economic behemoths. We will be forced to abandon untraceable cash and to enter in a big brother’s world.

Then, how can we recover, or at least not to lose, our freedom? Cryptocurrencies are the solution, but nowadays, my mother can not use them. She cannot buy some goods on the corner’s grocery with a few Satoshis. We need to democratize the use of cryptos. But how? We need to make it so transparent that you don’t even notice you’re using them. Of course, this cannot be done in one step, but we have to design a complete path to reach this goal. …

This article focuses on explaining both security and usability issues on biometric access to hardware wallets so that the users can evaluate the advantages of this unusual feature for the existing devices on the market.

With HASHWallet, the simple press of a finger will be your most powerful security tool.
With HASHWallet, the simple press of a finger will be your most powerful security tool.

Although biometric access is an expanding feature in technological devices across the board, only a few hardware wallets incorporate this system, and most of them opt for a PIN, and sometimes also they add a passphrase. Why do they choose these methods? Does this mean that PIN is a better security measure? Or on the opposite, is this due to economic reasons?

Let’s evaluate both features.

If you are a cryptocurrency user, nowadays you do not use your cryptos for everyday actions, and if you are a HODLer, your operations can be even less. You can not use your cryptos because of the containers. …

The number of users who start buying cryptocurrencies is growing every day, and they get introduced to it through different systems. We can classify the solutions to store crypto-assets in two main groups: hardware wallets and software wallets, each one with its pros and cons.

It is widely believed that software wallets are secure enough, and their use is widespread for two reasons: it is convenient to carry a software wallet in the smartphone, and we avoid the expense of a hardware wallet.

In this post, we will show why you should trust a hardware wallet instead of other weaker solutions. …
