It’s either a lucky coincidence or a brilliant marketing strategy.

Either could be the case with Coinbase’s new wallet product that allows users to have full possession of the keys for their cryptocurrency. The leading North American crypto platform is launching the product in the wake of the recent QuadrigaCX fiasco. Recent court documents revealed that only one QuadrigaCX employee, CEO Gerald Cotten, who died at age 30 of complications from Crohn’s disease, held the only encrypted passcodes for the company’s accounts, which were estimated to be worth US$180 million.

Coinbase wallet users can back up private keys on Google Drive and iCloud

The leading North American crypto platform is launching the product in the wake of the recent QuadrigaCX fiasco. Recent court documents revealed that only one QuadrigaCX employee, CEO Gerald Cotten, who died at age 30 of complications from Crohn’s disease, held the only encrypted passcodes for the company’s accounts, which were estimated to be worth US$180 million.

Cryptocurrency holders get a secret key, which must be treated with extreme security measures to protect investments. Best practices suggest users should have at least three copies of their secret key, located in different places, ensuring Bitcoins are safe if a user or the user’s cryptocurrency exchange is hacked.

Coinbase’s new app allows users to store an encrypted backup into a preferred online storage system. New users and those who don’t want to have to deal with multiple levels of security to secure their cryptocurrency may want to look into this wallet as a solution to easily keep your crypto keys safely backed up online. It can be downloaded at either Apple’s or Android’s app store.

 

Stream of the Week: TR/ST — Gone

wfp.to/siteseeingplaylist

Former Winnipegger Robert Alfons is back with his new-wave synth act TR/ST.

Bathed in rich synth washes, a taut drum machine and other sparkling sounds, Gone continues down the path TR/ST established on earlier albums. The song has both elements of TR/ST, a stripped-down frame where every sound has a purpose, and as a more aggressive side that allows Alfons’ vocals to be in the forefront, without sacrificing the song’s thick ‘80s synth washes.

 

Video of the Week: Frozen 2 trailer

If you have a kid, chances are you have watched the original Frozen a million times. With a box office pull of US$1.2 billion worldwide, a sequel was inevitable. Lo and behold, Frozen 2 is scheduled for release on Nov. 22.

Returning in their voice roles are Kristen Bell, who portrayed Anna in the original 2013 animated blockbuster; Idina Menzel, who was Elsa; and Josh Gad, who played Olaf.
