CryptoLabs has officially launched its Case hardware wallet at TechCrunch Disrupt NY’s Startup Battlefield.

First announced in November, Case is advertised as a pocket-sized bitcoin hardware wallet that includes security features such as multisig and biometric authentication. Case is now available for pre-order for $199 or roughly 0.83 BTC through payment processor PayStand.

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:

“As online blockchain technologies evolve as a means for buying and selling bitcoin, they will require devices like Case to ensure security and maintain privacy."

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.
