NGRAVE is a blockchain security provider offering a user-friendly end-to-end solution for the self-sovereign management of individuals’ and businesses’ digital assets and cryptocurrencies. The NGRAVE product suite consists of hardware wallet NGRAVE ZERO, backup solution NGRAVE GRAPHENE, and mobile application NGRAVE LIQUID.
NGRAVE ZERO is a secure hardware wallet that generates private keys offline and never exposes them afterwards. The device is completely “air-gapped”, meaning it does not rely on any kind of network connection capability (such as WiFi/Bluetooth/NFC), nor does it require USB.
▪️ The NGRAVE ZERO is fully backward compatible with existing key formats such as 12-,18-, and 24-word mnemonic phrases, including the generation and import of these keys.
▪️ Once keys and wallets are generated, it’s time for the ZERO to sign transactions and talk to the outside world. The communication happens through the use of QR codes between the device and the LIQUID, NGRAVE’s mobile app.
▪️ In addition to protecting secret codes from online attacks, NGRAVE has also taken into account a vast range of potential physical tampering scenarios. As a result, the ZERO has been tamper proofed in four cumulative layers.
NGRAVE has developed its ZERO in close collaboration with world renowned players. For electronics, it partnered up with global nanoelectronic powerhouse imec, known for a.o. taping the first atom-size chip in 2018. For the cryptographic challenges, the team is reinforced with experts from COSIC, a leading applied cryptography research group at the KULeuven. NGRAVE’s team is also working with Jean-Jacques Quisquater (he is the second reference in Satoshi’s 2008 Bitcoin paper). Finally, the ZERO’s secure operating system has earned the Common Criteria EAL7 certification, the highest achievable in the world, higher even than EAL 5, typically awarded to banks and governmental institutions.
NGRAVE wallets will be available for purchase via Indiegogo on May 26, 2020.
