1inch Hardware Wallet features
One of the most notable features of the hardware wallet is that it does not have any buttons. The wallet comes in the size of a bank card, weighs just 70 grams and is 4mm thin. It has a 2.7” E-Ink grayscale touch display. It has a Gorilla Glass 6 surface and stainless-steel frame which makes it waterproof.
It will also not require any wired connection. Users will use QR codes or optionally NFC to exchange data.
The 1inch Hardware Wallet supports wireless charging, and its Li-Po battery lasts for about two weeks when in use.
It also offers transparent transaction signing where it carries out full transaction parsing and offline data call analysis to prevent hacker attacks and theft of funds. If a transaction a user is signing gets compromised on the web or in a mobile app, the hardware wallet is designed to automatically inform the user about the compromise.
Users will also be able to create and control several sets of wallets within different seed phrases; something referred to as multi-seed phrase functionality. Each of the wallets will use the Hierarchical Deterministic (HD) Wallet algorithm in accordance with BIP44 to create a new wallet set.
