Evercoin 2 Launched Today

Evercoin announced today at NYC Consensus Invest their launch of Evercoin2, “the safest hardware wallet.”

In a Medium post today, Evercoin Exchange Founder Mike Matsumura said, “Obviously, it’s a significant statement to say that our wallet and exchange are the safest, especially with very powerful wallet options in the market including hardware wallets.”

Matsumara described several reasons to support their bold claim. Evercoin introduced hardware security with Evercoin2 by using YubiKey integration. Also, Evercoin has implemented a unique backup and recovery scheme which makes it harder for users to lose their keys. Evercoin uses a patent-pending approach to split the private key into two shards.

Due to its’ emphasis on being mobile-first, Evercoin has added biometric security features where appropriate. Also, the addition of the YubiKey device provides enhanced internet security against 2FA attacks, phishing attacks, online identity theft, and several other forms of attack.

One additional way Evercoin claims to be safer is that they enable users to protect themselves from market volatility by giving them “the ability to trade whenever and wherever you are.”

In a tweet earlier today Evercoin confirmed the same announcement.

NYC Consensus Invest is being held today at the Marriot Marquis in New York City. The focus of this year’s event is the intersection of macroeconomics and crypto. Other themes up for debate include capital markets, crypto market infrastructure, asset and portfolio management, and the future of crypto.
