CES 2020: First Look at Bobby Lee’s New Ballet Crypto Wallet


Bobby Lee is a well-known figure in the crypto world. The former CEO of one of China’s old crypto exchanges, BTCC, has amassed a large following on the various social media platforms and is frequently a speaker at the world’s crypto conferences.

Lee has spent the last 12 months working on his new hardware wallet, Ballet.

Ballet is the world’s first multicurrency non-electronic physical wallet. It offers 100 percent offline cold storage, allowing you to keep your tokens safe at all times.

“I’ve been working on this hard since January of this year. We’ve gone through six iterations of this hardware wallet design.”

The same size as a credit card, each Ballet wallet has a different primary coin to allow for easy direct deposits. There is no complicated setup process, KYC procedures, or geographic limitations. It is available to everyone, everywhere, all the time. All the leading cryptocurrencies are supported, including BTC, ETH, XRP, BCH, USDT, DOGE, QTUM, DASH, BAT, BSV, BNB, DAI, and any token that’s ERC-20 compatible.

The wallet itself is made out of durable and pure stainless steel. It feels premium and is very much a product that’s designed to last.

Each wallet has a QR code that’s connected to your card’s receiving address, a scratch-off panel that reveals the wallet’s passcode, and a unique serial number that allows you to check a wallet’s veracity. The wallet uses the BIP38 industry standard.

Of course, because of the construction material, the wallet weighs slightly more than a typical credit card, coming in at 35 grams. It’s also slightly deeper, measuring 1.22 mm. Nonetheless, it will easily fit in your wallet.

There is an accompanying app for iOS and Android. The pre-order price of the wallet is just $29, making it one of the most affordable hardware wallets on the market.
