We are excited to announce that FIO has teamed up with Ellipal, the leader in air-gapped cold wallets, and is integrating FIO Send into the Ellipal wallet ecosystem. Adding FIO Send to the existing ecosystem of the Ellipal Titan Wallet and the Ellipal Wallet App gives its users a simple and secure way to send cryptocurrency from the Ellipal wallet to any FIO-integrated wallet or exchange without the worry or fear of sending to the wrong address or on the wrong chain. FIO Send allows users to easily send cryptocurrency without the stress of copying and pasting long string public addresses that users of this and other wallets are accustomed to having to use. FIO Send replaces that long string public address vulnerable to errors and other exploits with a simple, human-readable address known as a FIO Crypto Handle. The long string public key address is replaced with the FIO Crypto Handle in the format of username@domain or, for example, janedoe@ellipal.
Ellipal is a blockchain technology company that produces some of the most secure cryptocurrency hardware wallets, along with a user-friendly app, and other products all focused on cryptocurrency user security. Their leading product is the Ellpal Titan is a complete network isolated offline cold storage using air-gapped technology. The ELLIPAL cold wallet gives full protection against remote and online attacks. Air-gapped means a state where a device is fully disconnected from other devices, systems and networks. It is described as the maximum protection for a device or system against hacking. The Ellipal Titan achieves an air-gapped state by being isolated electromagnetically, electronically, and, most importantly physically - from other networks, especially those that are not secure. The Ellipal Titan is also made with a secure metal case that prevents it from being tampered with. Any attempt to disassemble it will leave the device inoperable which keeps funds secure for the owner who has the seed phrase to restore wallets on another device. Ellipal also has an all-in-one app that pairs up with the Ellipal Titan, and allows users to tap into an ecosystem to buy, exchange, and stake cryptocurrency, plus access to hundreds of Dapps. Also in the Ellipal family is the Mnemonic Metal which is a metal case that allows you to store your seed phrase on a metal punched card, which is one of the most secure ways to store your backup seed phrases because it is more protected from water and fire, as opposed to paper cards many use to store their seed phrases.
