BitBox02

Bitcoin-only edition

Reduced attack surface

A Bitcoin wallet, nothing else

The BitBox02 Bitcoin-only edition has limited firmware and only supports Bitcoin. Less code means less attack surface, which further improves your security when only storing Bitcoin.

Secure chip

Bitcoin-only, forever

The BitBox02 Bitcoin-only will only ever have Bitcoin firmware. Nothing else. Unlike other hardware wallets, the Bitcoin-only edition cannot be reset to support other coins. The Bitcoin-only firmware is locked down at factory setup.

Security you can see

The secure dual-chip architecture reflects our values as a Swiss open-source security company: a secure chip is used for physical device hardening in combination with fully open-source firmware. The firmware has deterministic builds, which means you can verify what you are installing: Don't trust, verify!

Through our bug bounty program we encourage independent reviews of the firmware and responsible disclosure of any findings.
