RecoverySeedSaver™ Stainless Steel Crucial Password Protection
Everyone has crucially important passwords and pass-phrases to protect. Get the RecoverySeedSaver™ to protect them from being lost to fire, water, and the ravages of time. Engrave passwords onto stainless steel paper by following the laser etched lines creating a permanent indestructible record physically.
Recovery seeds are the key (private key) to internet network blockchain assets such as your identity or ledger-records of that represent value, an interest, data and all else that can be realized as applicable in this technological arena. RecoverySeedSaver™ protect your ASSets!
Our stainless steel-paper (4 inch x 5 inch very thin steel sheets) come with laser-etched lines on one side to use as guides for you to number and record by hand using a motorized pen engraver to record crucial data such as a password, passphrase or your cyypto currency wallet's "mnemonic recovery pass-phrase"aka BIP39 words.
We usually write the words onto the stainless steel sheet with a thin tipped marker first, and check spelling etc. before using a micro-engraver pen to permanently etch them into the metal. Note: Comes with a privacy envelope, but does not come with a thin tip marker. Micro engraver pen optional. Technically you can use both sides but laser etched guide lines are on one side only.

- Water Proof
- Hacker Proof
- EMP & Shock Proof

Experienced Cryptocurrency enthusiasts are already familiar with this, but if you are new to the space you may or may not yet be acquainted with crypto security concerns such as hot wallets vs cold wallets etc., so let's go over a few things.
The term hardware wallet describes devices such as the Trezor, Ledger, KeepKey etc. which are small USB interface devices used to protect the "digital private keys" which are used as the only way to unlock access your Crypto Assets. Please note that the actual crypto-assets actually are located on a digital ledger and always remain recorded on the blockchain and remain there on the digital network. What changes are entries to the ledger as to ownership, that also means recording ledger changes of that ownership, such as when ownership transfers happen, like when you use it to buy, trade or give it away. Essentially the so called wallet is really an interface method only, the crypto never leaves the blockchain and always remains on the internet/network.
Therefore the issue at hand concerns your access to that crptocurrency or those tokens; which is always accomplished in effect; by "unlocking" and thereby opening the access door via 'Private" keys to them. Anyone can send assets to your crypto- wallet address on the blockchain without any special invitation, they simply need the correct address of your wallets 'home' on the blockchain which is another way of describing what are actually called "public" keys. Note: never give anyone your private keys unless you want to give away your crypto!
You may wonder what happens if your Trezor, Ledger, KeepKey etc. gets lost, stolen or destroyed? What do you do to get your access to your cryptocurrency back, you may wonder?
Well, the answer if you don't already know it, is this: you go to your hiding spot; lock-box, safe etc. and get the piece of paper or whatever you wrote down the "Mnemomic Recovery Phrase" also called a "Recovery Seed" which is then used to "Restore" access to your 'digital ledger wallet' via your computer, phone or device such as a Trezor etc. This recovery phrase is a series of usually 12-24 individual-words in sequential order that you wrote down the day you initially set up the wallet and safely saved it somewhere.
OK, so we established that if your hardware wallet is destroyed that does not destroy your cryptocurrency, it's always on the blockchain no matter what! Therefore, you can still easily restore your access to your cryptocurrency; so long as you still have the 12-24 recovery pass-phrase-words. But, what if a fire or water damages or destroys the USUALLY paper recovery phrase what then? Can I reset the pass phrase somehow? ANSWER: NO! In that case it would be GONE! What is gone in this case is your access to the block-chain ledger asset-entries recorded on that particular digital-wallet via its networked access.
Therefore, the way to look at a how a hardware wallet is used; is to heighten your security as much as possible with regard to the USE of cryptocurrency (e.g, interacting with the digital block-chain ledger). Trezor is the first Bitcoin hardware wallet, that provides secure cold storage as well as access to spending convenience of a hot wallet. Trezor and KeepKey etc. are used to generate your private keys offline when you first initiate the device, securing your 'private keys' offline is referred to as "cold storage", and is one of the best ways to defend against computer vulnerabilities, hackers or viruses compromising both the private keys creation as well as afterwards when interacting with online wallet software in order to maintain safe transactions.
For instance; one could technically make transactions even on a hacked computer, even one that has a keylogger with a hacker watching your every keystroke and capturing what you see on your screen. However; even with the compromised and hacked computer, by using a hardware wallet device like Trezor, Ledger or Keepkey your assets still would not be compromised because the "control" of your "private keys" is actually accomplished by the Trezor, ledger etc which acts as a SEPARATE not-compromised device which is then controlling your private keys while interacting with the digital block-chain, in spite of the fact that the computer tablet or phone had been hacked and compromised in this example, and you wouldn't lose any crypto to the hacker!
Therefore TAKE NOTE: the only way to restore your cryptocurrecny wallet is via the original "recovery phrase" that you alone, wrote down AT THE TIME THAT you established that wallet! It is a ONE TIME event, and no one else can access it or help you get a new one. It is not like dealing with email etc.
As an early adopter of cryptocurrency I realized these facts at the outset and that is why I began to record my cyyptocurrency PassPhrases on stainless steel with a simple handheld engraver to protect my ASSets. I decided that the other options people were offering to do something similar, were interesting, but most often seemed to me to be convoluted, unnecessarily complicated and usually over-priced.
From the beginning, as far as protecting my personal crypto assets is concerned, I decided that an inexpensive, uncomplicated and easy approach was best. Not because I didn't value my crypto I can assure you! Rather, I took what to me was the most sensible approach. Like many other bullets I dodged in this space along the way; I chose this approach because I simply didn't fall for the hype and you shouldn't either!

FYI, a common house fire is perhaps 1000-1400 degrees. A severe house fire might reach 2000 ° F (For example only, not a warranty).
K.I.S.S. (Keep it Simple Smarty!)
Yes, of course you can use crypto to get one.
