CryptoLabs has officially launched its Case hardware wallet at TechCrunch Disrupt NY’s Startup Battlefield.
Speaking to CoinDesk, CEO Melanie Shapiro indicated that she expects the first Case units to begin shipping this summer, though no firm dates for shipping were provided.
Shapiro further spoke to the broader vision for the product in a statement, adding:
Only 1,000 Case wallets will be available for pre-order, with each entry in the initial batch bearing a unique identifier.
CryptoLabs had earlier suggested units were expected to be market ready by spring 2015.
