The solution reportedly combines a mobile application and a hardware chip, dubbed the VaultTel Card. The crypto storage solution will be sold in the U.S. starting today and will “immediately expand” to European countries via VaultTel’s United Kingdom subsidiary.
According to the firm, users can lock the VaultTel Card to a single device and to a particular geographical location.
To store funds, customers can either insert the VaultTel Card inside an unused SIM card tray — in the case of dual SIM capacity — or connect the chip to their phone via an accessory, such as a dongle. The corresponding mobile app will then let users interface with their stored funds.
