Our friends at Bitcoin.com News this week provided readers with a review of the new Coolwallet S hardware wallet they received.

The digital asset storage card started shipping last month and is available through the CoolWallet.io shop for $189 USD, a little on the pricey side but Bitcoin.com believes the Card's size advantae and ability to tether to both iOS and Android mobile has its benefits.

Should I or Shouldn't I Buy?

We found the app and card worked very well except for the fee settings section for bitcoin cash as it was set too high. Another thing we noticed is that it takes a touch longer for the app and card to sync funds and transaction history after performing an action, but it’s not unbearable. Charging the card doesn’t take long and the charge lasts for an extremely long time as the system shuts down when it’s not being used. As for the cards’ shape and how bendable the card is without hurting the device is a great feature. It’s easy to hide in your back pocket, in your physical wallet, or anywhere you can hide a small credit card. Size is a plus because the wallet is definitely more concealable than Trezor or Ledger models, and other hardware wallets that are even larger than those two products.

Bitcoin.com provides a step-by-step breakdown of their first impression with the Coolwallet S here.

After watching the interview between Dr. Craig S. Wright and Ryan X. Charles where they discuss the Bitcoin White Paper in its entirety, you might walk away with a better understanding of Dr. Wright’s original intended purpose for creating Bitcoin. The two discuss several topics that branch off from the original discussion to help you gain the right answers to the question “what is Bitcoin”.

Continuing to review the series of dialogues between Dr. Craig S. Wright and Ryan X. Charles, where they discuss the Bitcoin White Paper line-by-line, we come to the section concerning the Timestamp Server. Dr. Wright is the inventor of Bitcoin and the Chief Science officer at nChain while Ryan is the founder of Money Button. 

The Bitcoin White Paper: Stealing Bitcoin

In the video discussion about the second paragraph of the Bitcoin white paper between Dr. Craig S. Wright and Ryan X. Charles, the topic of honesty arose with regards to nodes and the security of the system. While there are a number of security features built in to blockchain, the idea of a rogue or criminal node stealing transactions is thwarted from an economic standpoint.

The Bitcoin White Paper: Proof of Work and Network

In a series of YouTube videos, Dr Craig S. Wright and Ryan X. Charles discuss the Bitcoin white paper line by line. Their discussions both clarify the original purpose and intent of Bitcoin as well as inspire additional thoughts about and future uses of it. Having the creator of Bitcoin explain it in his own words certainly clarifies some of the areas that have been misunderstood by many for a very long time.
