The hardware wallet market witnesses rapid traction across the globe. The increasing digital currency market and rising crypto-assets substantiate the market revenues.

A hardware wallet/cryptocurrency wallet is a cold storage device that supports storing various cryptocurrencies and offers extra security to crypto transactions. Some hardware wallets offer additional security features like a PIN code or a biometric for transaction authorization. Crypto investors actively use hardware wallets for their capabilities to build quality and staking mechanisms for ease of use and NFT support.

Some digital asset management platforms have implemented various features to their hardware wallets to facilitate quick transactions by using a shorter recovery phrase without involving UTXO changes. Generally speaking, hardware wallets are not made for multiple transactions per day. Also, some cold storage devices reportedly have concerns about handling the strain of regular use.

Industry Trends

Offline hardware wallets offer the safest option to store private keys as they are not connected to the internet, reducing the risk of compromised security. Furthermore, computer viruses cannot infect offline hardware wallets as private keys don’t come in contact with network-connected devices or potential software vulnerabilities.

Competitive Analysis 

The hardware wallet market appears highly fragmented, with several well-established players forming a competitive landscape. These players initiate strategic approaches, such as mergers & acquisitions, collaborations, and innovations, to gain a larger competitive share. The market would witness intensified competition with innovations, increased R&D investments, and M&A. 

Digital asset management platforms collaborate with other technology providers to create luxury hardware wallets and leap ahead in a new direction in releasing new wallet accessories. These firms develop products that adhere to government directives and FATF guidelines to curb money laundering. They also work on creating a collection of tech accessories on web3, decentralized apps that run on the Blockchain, allowing anyone to participate without monetizing their personal data.

For instance, on Sep 06, 2022, Trezor, a leading crypto wallet platform, announced a partnership with privacy project Wasabi to bring CoinJoin mixing to Bitcoin transactions on its hardware wallets. Coinjoin is a privacy-enhancing process leveraged to anonymize transfers on a Blockchain by combining them to obscure their origins. This will make bitcoin more private, allowing users to use CoinJoin on their Trezor devices for greater transaction privacy.
