We’re excited to announce that you can now use your Blockstream Jade with Wasabi Wallet. A collaboration that combines the privacy benefits of Wasabi with the self-custody security of Jade – a match made in heaven.

The latest integration allows users to protect their bitcoin holdings in cold storage with Jade while using the coinjoin feature from the hot wallet, all from the same Wasabi application. You will have to initialize your Jade with the Blockstream Green software wallet, but once that is done you will be ready to use it with Wasabi. 

Why Blockstream Jade?

Blockstream has a striking track record of state-of-the-art engineering, and Jade proves this once again.

“Blockstream Jade is an easy-to-use, purely open-source hardware wallet that offers advanced security for your Bitcoin and Liquid assets.” Blockstream

One of the key differences between Jade and other hardware wallets is that the device is fully open-source, it doesn’t have a security element BUT is still resistant to physical attacks. Jade achieves this by introducing a zero-knowledge oracle-enforced PIN protection system. Learn more about this innovative approach to physical security here
