  1. Which package is right for me?

    Do you prefer to handwrite your information, or use an indent mark? Choose a scribe for handwriting, or our hand stamp, rotary stamp, or Model 22 with Type for indent marking. Any of our indent marking tools will create similar marks and all have to be operated with a hammer. The Model 22 is a bit more efficient because it can mark multiple numbers at once, while the hand stamps have to be interchanged and the rotary stamps turned.

  2. What is the difference between the CypherPlate and the CypherWheel?

    The CypherPlate is a simple to use product that allows you to mark the surface of the stainless steel plate with your information, while the CypherWheel, a circular storage product, comes equipped with a Character Chip Kit and holds the chips itself in the order you determine. The CypherPlate can hold up to 48 lines of information (24 lines on each plate), making it a more versatile option for storing a variety of private information. The CypherWheel was designed specifically for storing seed phrases, allowing 48 characters to be placed on each side for a total of 96 characters allowing you to store 12 or 24 seed words. Both the CypherPlate and CypherWheel come with a Tamper Evident Security Seal. The CypherWheel is also designed to use a Padlock for security.

  3. What are my options for marking my CypherPlate?

    Because CypherSafe is a Numberall DBA, we also offer a variety of marking options if you choose to purchase a CypherPlate. The simplest of these is a scribe, which allows you to mark the CypherPlate with your handwriting. We also offer hand stamps and rotary stamps, which create an indent mark on the metal when used with a hammer, and our Model 22 with Type, which allows you to mark a sequence of interchangeable numbers all at once.

  4. Why should I keep my BIP39 seed stored in a metal wallet?

    As a Bitcoin user, you’re surely aware of the risks associated with storing your private key on your computer; Bitcoin was created specifically so you could securely exchange currency, but storing information this way defeats the purpose because your private key can be stolen by hackers. A paper wallet or hardware wallet may work in the short term, but keeping your information in either of these mediums makes it susceptible to disaster, such as fire, flood, or even a curious furry friend. CypherSafe’s cold storage products are fireproof, waterproof, pet proof, and tamper evident, ensuring that your private key is safe.
