Benjamin Hubert's LAYER Launches a Wearable Cryptocurrency Wallet

A fashionable yet intuitive way to store and manage digital currency.

By //Design

Award-winning industrial designer and founder of LAYER, Benjamin Hubert, reveals his latest creation, the TROVE cryptocurrency wallet. Capable of being worn on your wrist or around your neck, this wearable device stores (offline) and manages digital currency for daily spending and trading.

Simple and intuitive, LAYER explains how it can be used:

Users unlock the system using their ECG signature – a biometric method of verification that recognizes a user’s unique heartbeat pattern – by touching the contact zone on the front. This activates the bluetooth, which communicates with the user’s smartphone and allows funds to be accessed.

To learn more about TROVE and to sign up for updates on its possible release, head over to layerdesign.com. In other design news, IKEA just premiered collaborative rugs with Virgil Abloh and Craig Green.
