Creating a backup of your Bitcoin and crypto wallet is important. It ensures that your funds can be restored even if you lose or break your hardware wallet.
By default, the BitBox02 creates a backup on a microSD card. You can create an additional analog backup by writing down 24 recovery words. This is a great option because this backup is interoperable, transparent and - depending on the material - will last for generations.
Our backup card makes it easy to create a handwritten backup. It is printed on ageing-resistant cardboard and can be laminated without a lamination machine for additional protection. Privacy is important, so the card does not mention Bitcoin or cryptocurrencies on the outside. But the instructions inside, as well as the included booklet, guide you through every step of backing up your wallet.
Our free community version of the Backup Card. Just download and print it to secure your everyday wallets.
The professional Backup Card version is printed on ageing-resistant cardboard and uses no-machine lamination for added protection. Perfect for securing your long-term wallets.
Writing down the 24 recovery words is not a very intuitive process and needs to be executed with certain precautions. The same holds true for recovery: you or someone else might have to recover your wallet far in the future.
A backup needs to withstand the test of time. The backup card uses fine high-quality and ageing-resistant cardboard that is chlorine-free and acid-free. It is sourced from a specialty paper manufacturer with over 100 years of experience.
The fine cardboard of the backup card has a weight of 270 g/m2 and is used in three layers with the outer cover and the backup inlay. This makes for a very solid card. The cold-lamination pouch included with the backup card adds important protection against moisture and physical wear and does not require a lamination machine.
The Steelwallet is an apocalypse-resistant backup card. Because it is made of stainless steel, it protects your recovery words against fire, water, electrical-shocks, corrosion and pretty much any obstacles nature throws at it.
