BitFi.com explains that they will be depositing coins into the BitFi wallet. Those who want to participate will have to purchase one of these wallets that is preloaded with an additional $50 dollars. Those who are able to extract the coins and empty the wallet will be rewarded with $100,000 dollars.
The company behind BitFi says that they have invented the most sophisticated instrument in the crypto space. The main intention is to help the world adopt virtual currencies. Each of the devices has a price of $120 dollars.
“The Bitfi wallet is only $120 USD. As a computing device it is much more costly to manufacture than ordinary hardware wallets, however, our mission is to make this technology accessible to everyone and to keep it affordably priced as long as possible,” explains Bitfi on its website.
The company explains that their wallets work in a different way, which is much more advanced and secure than traditional hardware wallets. The wallet does not store the private keys, instead it calculates it by using an algorithm every single time the user types the secret phrase.
All currencies and assets will be supported in just one device and under a single secret phrase. At the moment, the most important hardware wallets are Ledger and Trezor, which are players already settled in the market.
