Tangem, a new smart banknote platform, launches pilot sales of physical bitcoin notes at the Megafash Suntec City store in Singapore.
Available in denominations of 0,01 BTC and 0,05 BTC, Tangem Notes radically improve the simplicity and security of acquiring, owning, and circulating cryptocurrencies for both sophisticated and incoming users.
Based on a S3D350A chip from Samsung Semiconductor, Tangem Note is the first hardware storage solution on the market with its entire electronics and cryptography certified to the Common Criteria EAL6+ and EMVCo security standards.
As Singapore sets the lead, Tangem is delivering the first shipment of 10 000 production notes to prospective partners and distributors all over the world for commercial pilots.
Operating out of Switzerland and Singapore with manufacturing in South Korea and Southern China and R&D in Taiwan, Russia, and Israel, Tangem develops a hardware-software platform to foster mass adoption of blockchain technologies.
