The Crypto Merchant has added products such as the D’Cent hardware wallet to their inventory to give businesses accepting crypto payments a range of secure, off-chain storage options. The D’Cent in particular provides biometric security, meaning that only business owners can access the funds stored within.
This expansion comes at a time when more and more businesses, such as insurance companies especially, are accepting blockchain transactions. These institutions often operate on legacy systems which have major security vulnerabilities, opening the door to hacking and theft of decentralized funds.
The new products from The Crypto Merchant are intended to help these businesses move their finances onto the blockchain, offering hardware that can both securely store assets and directly integrate with DeFi exchange platforms. Further, these offerings will allow businesses of all types to expand their blockchain payment capabilities.
The D’Cent Biometric Hardware Wallet is the piece of hardware that the company recommends most highly for these purposes. For one, the wallet is user-friendly and uncomplicated enough to support quick transactions, but robust enough to support customer needs as well.
Moreover, it supports Bitcoin, Ethereum, Litecoin, Bitcoin Cash, and all ERC-20 tokens, with limited support for a broad range of altcoins as well. These capabilities allow businesses to accept payments from popular blockchain ecosystems while circumventing the need to hand confidential customer information over to a custodial DEX platform.
D’Cent is among the larger options available from The Crypto Merchant, which makes it ideal for in-office use. It can also connect directly to the financial infrastructure of a given institution over Bluetooth, wired connection, or app integration.
The Crypto Merchant also carries a range of products from Ledger and Trezor, many of which are more suited to mobile crypto storage. The Ledger Nano specifically is designed to suit the needs of travel-focused businesses, with a sleek, pocket-friendly design.
“Getting a hardware wallet is the only way to outsmart hackers and avoid losing your crypto assets. But it’s critical that wallets are purchased from an authorized retailer, otherwise they could arrive tampered with or compromised,” the company explained on its website. “We want to help people avoid the horror stories, and have peace of mind when storing their hard-earned assets.”
