Coinkite this month announced the launch of the “high-end” cold card bitcoin signature device and the company is currently accepting pre-order requests. The new Coldcard Q1 is a battery powered machine that does not require connection to a desktop or power source. It features a 320×240 pixel LCD screen, which is roughly four times larger than the Coldcard Mk4’s screen. The new cold card also includes a QWERTY keyboard and a built-in QR code scanner with LED lighting.

The device has two MicroSD slots and Near Field Communication (NFC) capabilities, like the Coldcard Mk4. According to Coinkite’s documentation, the USB and NFC data can be “irreversibly blocked”. Coinkite Details: The QWERTY keyboard makes it easy to enter BIP-39 passphrases, and the Triple-A batteries offer Air-gap-Resilience. Coinkite notes that all of the features of the Mk4 are present on the Q1, but many are more easily accessible due to dedicated buttons.

“For example, with the dedicated ‘QR’ button you can display many values ​​as a QR code ready to be imported into your phone. The same goes for the dedicated ‘NFC’ key that triggers NFC export/import depending on the context,” Coinkite notes.

The Coldcard Mk4 costs $147.94 per unit, while the Q1 costs $199.99 per unit on Coinkite’s website. Customers paying with Bitcoin (BTC) get a 5% discount with a promotional code highlighted on the website. The competition in the Bitcoin hardware device manufacturing market is certainly intensifying as a new hardware wallet has been launched every month for the past three months.
