The launch event was held at an exclusive London venue with Kash Amini, global brand representative and ambassador for BitVault, welcoming selected guests from the banking, fintech and corporate community to an evening of food, drinks and entertainment.
The event was also attended by representatives of VVDN Technologies from India, the design and manufacturing partner for the BitVault.
According to Embedded Downloads the product was well received and the company and BitVault team had numerous follow up meetings after the event. The company mentioned that there was specific interest in the product from the banking community as the product has unique features for customer identification using a combination of biometrics, NFC [ Near Field Communication ] technology and cryptography.
One of the advanced features of the BitVault is the enhanced biometrics of the device which is provided by Swedish company Fingerprints. According to the Fingerprints website:

Embedded Downloads also announced the opening of the BitVault Application store to developers.
Developers get access to key features of the BitVault such as dynamic key creation, the use of biometrics for authentication, access to an integrated private blockchain, secure messaging, secure calling and the ability to handle secure data as well as many of the other security features of the BitVault.
The BitVault native applications include cryptocurrency wallets for Bitcoin, Ethereum, Bitcoin Cash and EOT. Developers will have the ability to create in-app purchases or premium upgrades using these currencies. Developers could also create their own cryptocurrency wallets and/or other applications with the same security features as the current applications on the BitVault.
There are numerous advantages and opportunities for developers developing for the BitVault. The BitVault is being sold to large organizations such as banks, FinTech companies, government organizations etc as well as to the general public. Developers thus have the opportunity to showcase their applications to a large audience and on a newly developed platform. Developers also have the advantage that they can develop blockchain enabled apps without the need of developing their own blockchain. All the security and other features of the BitVault gives the developer a multitude of tools to develop unique and potentially profitable applications.
Developers will be supplied with a BitVault development toolkit to enable them to create these applications. Due to the unique security nature of the BitVault and the closed ecosystem, a “Developer BitVault” has been developed as a testing device for all applications.
There will be a series of Developer Conferences announced shortly, the company said.
