Keystone published an official blog post to announce its integration with Kelpr, a wallet software in the Cosmos ecosystem. The integration is essential to achieve the objective of providing an added layer of security to the users in the ecosystem. Moreover, the collaboration will provide convenience to the users.
A simple step of linking Keystone to Keplr’s Web Extension Application will enable the seamless management of Cosmos assets. Keystone can be considered the best crypto hardware wallet, which adds an additional layer of safety and security to the offline digital asset by providing protection against cyber threats. Keystone is said to have been designed to ensure that human error remains at the lowest level. The hardware wallet is a 100% air-gapped QR code wallet that has been deployed for the purpose of minimizing trust and maximizing attack costs. Another objective is to avoid single points of failure while boosting interoperability.
Keplr is an IBC-enabled wallet specifically for the ecosystem of Cosmos Interchain. It supports multiple tokens and coins, making it the most trusted choice for crypto users. Keplr is powered by Chainapsis, supporting its open-source nature for a long time.
Chainapsis is also credited with the creation of Osmosis, the first IBC-enabled AMM, where IBC stands for Inter-Blockchain Communication protocol. Chainapsis centers around users with a core focus on IBC protocol and the Cosmos ecosystem.
The integration of Keystone with Keplr gives users another option to consider when it comes to storing their assets on a hardware wallet. Current users of Keystone must upgrade to the M-9.0 version before linking it to Keplr’s Web Extension Application. New users will be automatically guided for the same. A step-by-step guide to upgrading Keystone is available on the official website.
The development was announced by Keystone through an official blog post, highlighting that Keystone is confident that the integration with Keplr will deliver fruitful results to the users of not just Keplr but also Keystone. It has laid down the roadmap for 2023 with a commitment to coming up with more updates in the future.
A circumstance where users are unable to update Keystone may arise. In that case, users are suggested to check the file directory, file name, and the size of the file, which should be consistent with the size on the official website. MicroSD cards must be used only after checking their format and capacity.
The integration of Keystone with Keplr brings security and convenience for users on both sides. More updates are on the way for the Cosmos ecosystem.
