Review & Unboxing | KeepKey – The Simple Cryptocurrency Hardware Wallet!

by birtanpublished on October 27, 2020

Hey guys welcome back so first of all I want to start as usual by thanking everybody who's been liking subscribing and sharing my content you're helping me get my name out there and I really appreciate it today I am back to do another hardware wallet review this one's going to be the keep key I want to shout out keep key obviously for sending me a wallet to review I'm gonna try to do a bunch of them all in succession and we'll see how it goes for those of you who missed it I just did the the cool wallet last week and then I'm hoping maybe next week or the week after I'll do the treasurer so

This would be the keep key comes in a nice little box has the name on it this is a seal showing that the item has not been tampered with which is kind of cool it's a security seal but you can see it right there obviously it hasn't been broken still covered in plastic so it's brand new hindsight I don't have a knife or anything so I'm just gonna have to use a memory card to crack it open see how it goes this uh this little security code is giving me some trouble I really didn't want to rip the paper off the box but I didn't grab a knife so right oh okay so it's a little bit bigger than I

Expected but I had watched some reviews online just to see what it looked like so this would be the wallet at first glance it's pretty solid honestly it's got a little weight to it which is kind of nice it's got keep key on the item itself which is also pretty cool going further into the box we have the limited warranty and compliance thingy and we have what I assume is oh yeah okay so where the recovery cents into the recovery seat is gonna go we also have quite obviously the charger so that's actually pretty easy as far as items in the box some quick facts about

It this is a hardware wallet which means that it will store some of your crypto currencies offline in a safe place it's also 129 dollars which puts it a little bit below the new treasurer and just a little bit above the ledger nano s and price the keep key will hold Bitcoin aetherium litecoin doge – and all ERC 20 tokens another fun fact about this is that it actually has a shape-shift integration which means that you'll be able to do seamless change is actually on the keep key itself some pros I'd say that it's quite sleek looking so definitely the design

Is nice also the aluminum it's pretty tough or at least it feels like it's probably pretty tough so I'd imagine it would take a little bit of a beating the keep keys also open source which means that everybody can access the code and they can even be a part of the development if they want to be immediate drawbacks would be the fact that well it needs a plugin it needs a google chrome plug-in just like the ledger which can be a little cumbersome because obviously you have to use a browser to access that it's gonna be less portable than the ledger or the treasure obviously just

Because I mean it's simply larger in size the other thing I'd like to mention is that it hasn't been around as long as ledger or treasure as far as development goes I am no whiz when it comes to code and I don't know about anything about the underlying tech or the security of the item so my biggest con would probably be the fact that we don't really know how it's gonna stand up over time and if there's been any major issues with the security how it would hold up if somebody tried to crack it I want to do a quick little walkthrough setting it up in the computer and using

The google chrome plugin alright so I've jumped over to my computer obviously I'm doing a window capture here because I want to get the set up for you guys so that you have a little bit of idea what you're doing undoing the charging cord which is taking a bit longer than anticipated alright so I'm gonna plug it in now next step is to download the Q key clients which is a Chrome extension I'm gonna add app there we go Faiers firmware update unplug your key key hold down the button while plugging in to start the firmware update okay looks like we're

Gonna do that unplug there's a button right here so we're gonna hold it and plug it back in for more update started and update firmware once your keep came in and access the back of your recovery sentence right now it's asking me for the recovery seed because it's assuming because I'm doing it for more update in theory something could happen to the keep key and then in which case I need to see it to back it up onto something now obviously this is a new hardware wallet so I don't necessarily need to worry about that step yet but if you did

Have something on your Cape Kate and you or updating it always make sure that you have the seed just in case anything happens to it okay preparing for upgrade updating firmware firmware update complete please disconnect to reconnect disconnect and reconnect ok let's try this now initialize keep ki choose a label free QP so that just means name it I'll do Alexes can I do a smiley face yes I can now I need to choose a pin so what we need to do is we need to look at the keep key and see that it has numbers on the screen and then click the squares

Here that are corresponding to the numbers on the Q key now be aware when you go to do it a second time to verify that the numbers on the key key have moved placement so keep an eye on that because obviously it's not gonna be the same buttons that you're pressing on your key key confirmed we've written down your recovery sentence I'm gonna blur this here obviously for the video because I may end up using this key key for myself in the future this recovery sentence is the seed to the keep cave so if anything happens to it you break it you go swimming and it's in your pocket

It's something I don't know catastrophic happens you can take this seed you can buy a new keep key you can enter it into the new one and you will restore your wallet from the previous place that it was do not give this seed to anyone because then they can take all of your cryptocurrency ok I've now filled out my little card so it's asking me to confirm what is new ëthere M tokens support your RC 22 standard for anything and blah blah blah very cool so it's showing us all the new stuff that is in the wallets loading accounts here we go and now we're getting to the main events alright

At this point you can now start sending receiving transactions if you go to add account down here it's going to show you a list of other coins that it supports I would assume that if you go to e theorem and you send an e or 220 token here that it's gonna recognize it I wanted to show you guys something very quickly the fact that you can use to keep you with overstock I don't know if you can actually use it with other website if you scroll down you'll see PayPal Bitcoin and other which is pretty cool if you go to submit order it gives you the option to pay with a bunch of

Different cryptocurrencies and it basically just uses shape-shift and because my kiki is plugged in right now if I had any cryptocurrency on it in that sense I could use it for an exchange and then I could buy something off overstock with it which is very useful and that about sums it up for me today guys I want to thank you as usual for watching supporting my channel if you haven't subscribed yet please do so if you like my t-shirts all of those you can pick one up on my website I have a merch store and if you're interested in picking up one of these keep keys I do
