         Case Announces September 21 Shipping Date for Bitcoin Hardware Wallets

Bitcoin wallet manufacturer Case Inc. has concluded the final phase of testing and announced that the company will begin shipping its hardware wallets on September 21.

“Appropriation of parts is complete and the manufacturing process is nearing its end. Everyone at Case is eager to get our device in the hands of our customers who have patiently waited for their bitcoin wallets,” Case announced on its website. “Providing a secure, easy-to-use bitcoin experience around the world has been our mission from the beginning and we’re excited to finally deliver on that.”

The Case team launched its hardware wallets at TechCrunch NY on June 24 and raised $1.5 million in an equity seed funding round led by FuturePerfect Ventures, participated in by RRE Ventures, High Line Venture Partners and the Rochester Institute of Technology Fund. During a presentation at TechCrunch NY, the Case team promised its investors and its customers to ship their hardware wallets by the end of summer.

“As more important assets move to the blockchain (contracts, property and identity), having a completely secure way to store and transfer those assets becomes even more paramount,” Case CEO Melanie Shapiro told Bitcoin Magazineat that time. “We’re interested in not only servicing the consumer holding bitcoin, but also providing the banks using blockchain technology the power to manage who has the authority to execute transactions.”
