Hello, fellow crypto enthusiasts over at r/CryptoCurrency!

On the 14th of July, starting from 5pm CET, both of them will be all ears for a span of 1.5 hours. They are super keen to answer your questions and chat about everything there is to know about hardware wallets, be it open-source aspects, Ledger recovery, secure element etc.
So, why not drop your questions ahead of time? We promise to tackle as many as we can, and we'll do our best to ensure a broad variety of subjects are covered.
Best question wins a Keystone 3! 🤯
Keystone has become a trusted partner for numerous crypto users globally, delivering unmatched security measures to protect their digital assets. However, our commitment goes beyond safeguarding digital assets; we’re dedicated to harmonizing our hardware with future developments, continually enhancing user experience. Whether you’re an experienced crypto trader or a newcomer to the digital asset market, Keystone intends to become your reliable companion through the Web3 universe.
So, what sets Keystone apart? Our ethos and mission are underpinned by three core principles: an unshakeable commitment to maximizing wallet compatibility, a promise to serve as a reliable security partner for all software wallets, and an unwavering dedication to innovation that guarantees the safest haven for your crypto assets.
Our wide-ranging compatibility with various software wallets gives an added layer of protection to our users and a safety net against a single point of failure, should a software wallet service be discontinued or cease maintenance.
Over the past 6 months, we’ve integrated with Keplr, ArConnect, BlockWallet, BitKeep, Core, OKX, with more to come in the next half of the year.
The foundational bedrock of our hardware wallet lies in offline security, placing paramount importance on air-gapped configuration. The connection between a hardware wallet and a companion app is of utmost importance, and we’ve determined that data transmission via QR codes offers significant security advantages over alternative methods.
We perceive Keystone not just as a “hardware wallet,” but more accurately, as an “offline signer.” This designation enables us to focus on our primary mission — assisting users to sign transactions securely.
Instead of typing in an address, you can simply scan the QR code directly on your Keystone device to get the address. This method ensures the utmost security as this is an offline address, completely immune to the risks posed by potential hackers. No hacker, no matter how skilled, can alter this offline address.
The recent attacks on Atomic Wallet, Binance, Stake and other CEXs could have easily been thwarted with the use of Keystone.
We also resonate with Satoshi Nakamoto’s vision of a trustless system for ensuring one’s digital asset safety. Built on the principles of openness and transparency, Keystone incorporates open-source firmware and hardware, making it possible for anyone to scrutinize, validate, and contribute to its evolution.
