Ruben Merre, co-founder and CEO of Ngrave will talk about the pitfalls of private key management and how to overcome them with cold hardware wallets. He will also introduce ngrave’s end-to-end hardware wallet solution that tackles the what-ifs of managing digital assets and cryptocurrencies.
Cryptocurrency related hacks are increasing in size and frequency, showing no signs of slowing down. In 2018 a record $2.5 billion was stolen. In 2019, thieves made off with $ 4.3 billion.

With this risk in mind Ruben’s presentation will revolve around three of the biggest challenges with handling private keys: they are mis-made, mis-managed and mis-recovered.
