Bitcoin hardware company Foundation Devices launches Bitcoin hardware wallet Passport

Bitcoin hardware company Foundation Devices announced the launch of the Bitcoin hardware wallet Passport, a company founded by Zach Herbert, the former COO of the decentralized storage project Sia. The wallet integrates security, open source, and ease of use. Users only need to insert a microSD card or scan a QR code to sign transactions. Passport is open source and uses the same security architecture and firmware library as Coldcard. The board design and firmware will be published on Github. The hardware will be licensed under CERN’s open hardware license, and the firmware will be licensed under GPL3. In terms of material, Passport uses soft plastic and copper-plated zinc alloy. Passport will begin accepting the first 1,000 bookings in August and will ship in late December.
