Super sexy, indeed. It's great to see that kind of support for Dash. Where is this announcement on their website? I've looked and don't see it right away.
No announcement
Tao (I think) posted it on BTC
They mention Dash in the FAQ
https://www.keepkey.com/keepkey/faq/
I made the graphic ;)
(That pic and text is from their webpage)

me:
"KeepKey supports BIP 32 wallets, or what are commonly called HD wallets. This allows KeepKey to generate and store an unlimited number of private keys. KeepKey also supports BIP 44, which allows for an organization of accounts. KeepKey can support practically an unlimited number of wallets with an unlimited number of private keys."
BIP69 is supposed to come in Dash v12.. Will this make Dash incompatible with this device or will they be able to update the firmware?
Please let me know your thoughts on this and i will translate that to the community.

KeepKey:
BIP69 won't make Dash incompatible with KeepKey, as the computer client actually defines the ordering of inputs and outputs. So that order can change and KeepKey doesn't mind. But I should add, KeepKey doesn't enforce BIP69.

found the answer in FAQ
How do I backup my KeepKey incase it is lost or stolen?

When your KeepKey is initialized, you are given an opportunity to write down a recovery sentence. This recovery sentence is your KeepKey’s backup. If your KeepKey is lost or stolen, you can recovery your private keys using this recovery sentence. KeepKey supports the account hierarchy standardized in BIP 44. Any software that supports BIP 44 can recover your funds. You can also recover your private keys onto a new KeepKey with the recovery sentence. We recommend using KeepKey’s recovery process on a new device, as your private keys remain protected should there be malware or viruses on your computer.

Hi!

I'm trying to store Dash on KeepKey, but haven't figured out what software can I use for that?

The original KeepKey Chrome extension doesn't support Dash,
Electrum-Dash lists only Trezor as an option for hardware wallet...

Thanks for any hints :)

Hi Mart,

I am currently in conversations with KeepKey to clarify their Dash integration I will bring this up with them. If you give me a little time I will get you a clear answer to this.

Thanks for quick replay, I'll keep eye on this thread.
I also opened a ticket at KeepKey about it.

From KeepKey support I got an answer:

Although the device has support, we haven't yet seen a client adopt KeepKey support that does Dash.
Good news is, we are in contact with the Dash team and some very good support is coming soon. Stay tuned.​

So sitting back with my fingers crossed :)

Sounds good! let's just hope it's really soon not soon™ :)
price is the same as the Trezor. Thinking about buying either the KeepKey or the Trezor. Would be nice to have some reviews, regarding Dash usage :)

I have used Keepkey, Trezor, and Ledger Nano for holding btc. I prefer the trezor over keepkey because you can reuse the same receiving address while the keepkey generates a new address every time. Maybe there is a way to change this setting??

Honestly I like the ledger Nano the most because it seems to be the least "glitchy" of the three, is super cheap ($30), and the size of a small usb stick (does not require a micro usb to usb wire to use with a computer).

You can get any of the 3 mentioned on purse.io at discounted price

EDIT: forgot to mention that the screen on the trezor is very small so if you have a hard time reading small text then the keepkey might be preferable.

I have all three, too. Ledger nano is the only one that broke on me, and does not allow use of passphrase wallets. It only has a pin and that's it. Keepkey has a slight advantage over the Trezor in that it allows cypher input of the mnemonics. With Trezor, best practice is to create new mnemonics after you restore the old ones and access your money, since there is a possibility of keylogging from the plaintext input. Keepkey allows you to continue to use the same mnemonics even after restoring, because you retain around 100bits of entropy or so with the scrambled-word cypher entry method. Keepkey build quality is nice, but Trezor is conveniently small.

I was doing an advanced setup with Electrum, and at the point when you're supposed to unplug and plug it into an offline computer with text editor to backup the seed, it just got stuck and was never again detected by the computer. Tried everything, Ledger starter, firmware update, etc. nothing can detect it anymore. In all fairness, most users will setup their Ledger (user chooses PIN and writes down mnemonics, then send seed to the device) with the Ledger Starter ISO, but that only allows a 4-digit pin. Doing initial setup with Electrum allows for more secure PIN, but I guess it might possibly break your nano.

Any updates in using Dash with KeepKey?
I may help testing (if there's anything to test...).

As an alternative, I recently bought an Elephone Q, just $40... runs KitKat and so super compact! It's a bit fiddly to setup but you can side-load Coinomi (no accounts or sims needed). For the price and size, can keep it just for wallets only. Not quite the same thing as these dedicated wallets but it does the job.

Is there an app that does the same task as these purpose built wallets?

I recently bout a KeepKey because they specifically said I could cold store my Dash on it. Got it and there is no option to store DASH.. just BTC, ETH, LTC, & DOGEcoins. Ill be calling them for a refund. Ihavent seen any fix for this and not sure why they promote DASH on KeepKey when it clearly does not store those coins.
