Whether you are new to the crypto game or have been involved since the beginning, protecting your investment from theft needs to be your top priority. Every year, billions of dollars worth of crypto assets are stolen from online wallets at exchanges and on personal computers and phones. The only way to trust protect your assets is to keep them in a place where the outside world can't access them - cold storage.

Todd Cochrane (00:21)

So I want to welcome Olivier.

Olivier Louvray (00:27)


Todd Cochrane (00:28)

To our show and he is from Keepser Group. Is that correct? I pronounced that right.

Olivier Louvray (00:33)

Yup. That's correct.

Todd Cochrane (00:34)

So I'm thinking what you're going to be talking about here is some sort of Bitcoin or coin type vault.

Olivier Louvray (00:43)

We call it a cold wallet.

Todd Cochrane (00:46)


Olivier Louvray (00:47)

That's the name of our product Keepser Cold Wallet. And in there, you can store obviously, cryptocurrency keys and all the information you need to do the transactions, but also your passcode, your credit card, your access code. And so that not only you can do things for the cryptocurrency domain, but you can also do things like e-commerce or connecting to your website, consulting your accounts, and so on.

Todd Cochrane (01:18)

So tell us about the tech and what, what is actually involved in syncing stuff, and so forth.

Olivier Louvray (01:26)

Yeah. So the product has two pieces, one piece that stores the data, and this piece has no battery, no microprocessor, no software, and it's storing things for 30 years. It's not detectable. And you pair that through the contactless process with the application that you can download. And that's your private data that are fully encrypted, that you through a coupling here like, showing that, not sure showing that the right way. But basically, you can see that I have entered, website credit card number, crypto-assets information, and then it's defined how you can use it, under which criteria of security and you can define for each of them. Different level of security, it's fully programmable by the user or by the administrator if your company and so that this product is you can define, for example, geo-fencing, meaning that can define that I can use this code only here, within few meters, or only in Las Vegas.

Todd Cochrane (02:51)


Olivier Louvray (02:51)

Something like that. Yeah, I can define that. I can use it only if I connect to a given network, or obviously, I can put passwords on this kind of thing. And many older security criteria, like scanning a barcode on my Coca-Cola can work in my fridge; that could be my password, my way of accessing that. So anyway, we have built that up. This product has won itself the product award for the CES Innovation this year. But before that, I mean, with a partner technology partner that is called Freemindtronic that is doing some of the IP that we have embedded in the product. They have also won the security award under Trump's entry for 2021.

Todd Cochrane (03:40)

I think the question I always ask is, okay, let's say I put my crypto passwords, passcodes, all that on there, and I lose that.

Olivier Louvray (03:53)

Okay, so that's a good question, obviously. We sell with this product, another product that we call a companion that we call a Safe Clone, where you can instantaneously either clone or backup your card. So you carry this card with you all day. And you put the other backup card, Safe Clone, somewhere safe.

Todd Cochrane (04:14)

Somewhere safe.

Olivier Louvray (04:15)

At home or-

Todd Cochrane (04:16)

Safety deposit box or wherever it may be.

Olivier Louvray (04:18)

Exactly. And so when you do cryptocurrency business, you have to register your what we call the seed phrase.

Todd Cochrane (04:25)


Olivier Louvray (04:26)

Complex code to recover your cryptos.

Todd Cochrane (04:29)


Olivier Louvray (04:30)

And usually, we ask you to put that on paper or something like that. Here, you don't have to have that. You can store it on the backup card, and then you have it's safe, and you can have instant recovery through the application. No, no. You store it in. And the way you can store it is that you generate, for example, a QR code with a receipt phrase, you just scan it with your phone, and it's stored in your cart.

Todd Cochrane (04:45)

So that's interesting. You're not actually storing the passcode. Your recovery passcode is in the device. You still have to keep that as a physical written down all those sequences of numbers or whatever it may be Interesting.

Olivier Louvray (05:13)

The thing that is important is the data stay on the card, is never stolen from the phone, and is never stored in the cloud. We have obviously full encryption there. And all the communication the links have fully secured and encrypted. And by the way, it's a patented technique that we use.

Todd Cochrane (05:32)

So if I have crypto stored on the card, and I have the backup card, and I sell some crypto or transfer, you know, back into an exchange or wherever it may be. What happens with the other card? You'd have to sync that?

Olivier Louvray (05:47)

So if you change things, and you have like how this rush backup, yeah, you have to sync up from time to time, but it's very easy. You can do it either selectively one by one if you wish. But usually, you just have a clone function. So you just replicate and so on.

Todd Cochrane (06:05)

Gotcha. Available now or what? Do you have- You have questions, Chris?

Christopher Jordan (06:10)

I was gonna say the function that I loved was be-, and it's kind of like the passcode, USB thumb drives, where you can store all kinds of pass stuff encrypted. But what I love is the function where it can be recognized by your location. So you could literally use this in a business capacity, that kind of stuff where you can only access that stuff once you've come onto the job site.

Todd Cochrane (06:31)

That's right, or-

Olivier Louvray (06:33)

This function is very useful for the enterprise. Yeah, so in this card, and the way we manage it, there is the administrator domain and the user domain. The administrator can hide things from the user if necessary, so if your enterprise as an administrator.

Todd Cochrane (06:49)


Olivier Louvray (06:49)

You can give that to your employee. So they can connect to thesensitive data through VPN, for example, for the enterprise.

Christopher Jordan (06:57)


Olivier Louvray (06:57)

And at home, we can define this code will only work in your home location, and you connect to the VPN of the enterprise or the sensitive servers. And the user does not even know the password, the ID, and so on. They just scan the card through their phone. And then it automatically connects through on your, on their laptop, and so on.

Todd Cochrane (07:22)

So this is, you know, this is a, it's basically a geo-locked NFC device almost. Yeah.

Christopher Jordan (07:28)

Yeah. Yeah, really cool. And I mean, can you set it up where whenever you go to use a password that it sends you double authentication or anything like that?

Olivier Louvray (07:39)

Well, I mean, you can, we can use all the functions on the phone, in terms of security, and so on. And we leverage so you can leverage fingerprint or facial recognition, or this kind of thing, or, and you can program it. So today, we are just, we have implemented different ingredients in terms of technology, we are just talking, the touching the surface of the value use case. We have a lot of people asking us, like what you say, Oh, what about doing this or that?

Todd Cochrane (08:09)


Olivier Louvray (08:09)

And yes, we can, obviously that requires some software developed.

Todd Cochrane (08:13)


Olivier Louvray (08:14)

But the beauty of this is that as we make things evolve, interview of use case, control it to a solution, where you this is, for example, a USB dongle, where you load the software on the USB. When you do that, you increase the services and so on. Mechanically, your security goes down, dropping, and you have to compensate for that. Yeah, here the data, there is no software, there's no battery, there is nothing.

Christopher Jordan (08:41)

You've got pins inside of the USB that can get frazzled, though, and all kinds of things.

Olivier Louvray (08:44)

So that's constant security. And we make the software evolve. So we are future-proofed because of that.

Todd Cochrane (08:53)

Is this available today?

Olivier Louvray (08:54)

It is available today. So we have another product, and we show people you can order it on the website. And we will do a worldwide launch around the March timeframe where we are finishing all the paperwork and the return for export control and so on.

Todd Cochrane (09:12)

Yeah, that export control on encrypted devices is painful. I know.

Olivier Louvray (09:16)

Well, actually, the encryption is done through the phone.

Todd Cochrane (09:20)

Oh, so that helps.

Olivier Louvray (09:21)

So this is a storage device that is controlled, and where we have a patented way of managing the communication between the two. But there is no real. If I send that to you, it's empty.

Todd Cochrane (09:35)


Christopher Jordan (09:36)


Olivier Louvray (09:36)

You are in control of putting things here and so on. But this is no encryption engine.

Todd Cochrane (09:43)

What is the price point going to be on that? Any idea?

Olivier Louvray (09:46)

So we have a different model in different of capacity and different features, whether you use crypto or just as passcode management. So it's between everything between a little bit more than 200 euro to 600 with a bundle with backup code. And so, depending on the model that you want, you pay more or less, but it's a one-time fee. Okay, there is no subscription. Again, nothing on the phone. Nothing in the cloud.

Todd Cochrane (10:16)


Christopher Jordan (10:16)


Olivier Louvray (10:16)

So the app is free. You just download it.

Todd Cochrane (10:19)

So I always ask this question. It's always a sensitive topic. I have the card.

Olivier Louvray (10:25)


Todd Cochrane (10:26)

You go out of business.

Olivier Louvray (10:28)

So yeah, that's, that's a good question. And actually, so the app itself, you have it, so you can use it, and so on. The only thing is if we go out of business, which, hopefully, it's unlikely.

Todd Cochrane (10:41)

Right. Right.

Olivier Louvray (10:43)

We will not make the new feature.

Todd Cochrane (10:45)

New features.

Olivier Louvray (10:46)

But the app is there. It will be on the-.

Todd Cochrane (10:50)

So you could get the data off if you have to transfer it to another device? I don't, you know, I asked that question. Because it's something, you got to think about in today's world no matter what. Yeah, hopefully, you're gonna be in business for, you know, a long, long time.

Olivier Louvray (11:03)

We love it too.

Todd Cochrane (11:03)

But it's, yeah, it's something you have to ask. Thank you so much. This is fantastic.

Christopher Jordan (11:08)

That is really, really cool.

Todd Cochrane (11:09)

I know your activity. Your Booth was busy because I walked by

Olivier Louvray (11:12)

We were. Yeah. We're quite busy demonstrating saints, and it works great.

Todd Cochrane (11:16)

Yeah. Awesome. Well, thank you so much for coming out. I appreciate it.

Olivier Louvray (11:21)

Well, thanks for your time.

Christopher Jordan (11:22)

Let everybody know where they can go to pre-order. To find out more.

Olivier Louvray (11:27)

Okay. So pre-order is on the website. And you have a button for ordering. And that's it. And it's an e-commerce website. And down the road, we'll link to distributors as we grow and spread these around.

Todd Cochrane (11:49)

Sorry, Well, it's Keepser. is the website, so definitely check it out. So thank you so much for coming on.

Christopher Jordan (11:57)

Really cool.

Todd Cochrane (11:58)

Really cool.

Olivier Louvray (11:59)

Yeah, thank you very much.
