An Isolated Place: Writing Software for Crypto Hardware Wallets

Today, we want to take you on a tour through the odd world of hardware wallets. Over the years, Vacuumlabs engineers have gained extensive experience with this technology, so it seemed fun to share some of the learnings with fellow developers…

This is kind of a task which makes you ask yourself, “OK, and what will I do in the afternoon?” Obviously, we couldn’t be more wrong.
