Introducing the Stonebook
It is the first water-resistant notebook for storing passwords and cryptocurrency private keys. It will work for all other cryptocurrencies as well since the usage is the same. Imagine being able to have a truly safe place to write down all the data that keeps your crypto under wraps. This is what the Shieldfolio Stonebook does, and does it well. There is no traditional paper involved. The pages of this notebook are not made from trees. They are made from crushed stone. This makes the Stonebook durable enough to last a lifetime.
Since the pages of the Stonebook are not made from trees, they are 100 percent water-resistant. The extra safety from this is obvious. You can spill your coffee on this 80-page notebook and not have to worry. Getting caught in the rain or a flooded house with the Stonebook will also not cause a loss of information. This is a great idea that has now come of age for use in writing down any valuable information but is particularly made for those in the cryptocurrency realm. To top it off, the ink used in writing down important data is nearly invisible. The whole idea is to preserve the private keys of your bitcoin wallet with as much security as possible.
Extra protection using a special form of encryption
The Stonebook has a unique manual method of hiding private keys behind passwords. A special page that is filled with a group of blocks is included. These blocks are created for entering password hint questions that only you will be able to think of. This is one way to take security a step further. In this way, Password hints are grouped answers which are harder to guess than a standard password. It nearly guarantees that no one will be able to guess your passwords without the aid of highly sophisticated computer methods. This method is named Shieldcrypt and further augments the security for your crypto coins.
How long will the Stonebook last?
The novel idea of making pages out of stone should come to mind when thinking of this question. This notebook is crafted to last a lifetime. No trees are harmed or used when making this durable notebook. There is no metal to rust or be found underground with a metal detector, and the pages are tear-resistant. This means you can pass this on to your loved ones as an heirloom if so desired.
Why buy this notebook instead of a secure hardware wallet?
While hardware wallets like the Trezor or Ledger work as advertised, they have some limitations. They must be connected to a digital device to operate. The Stonebook is not like this. There are no digital connections—nothing to upload or download, and it's 100% offline.
Hardware wallets are complimented very well by the Stonebook because they require a recovery phrase. This is precisely what this notebook does, stores private keys, and recovery phrases. A good reason why the Stonebook is superior to a hardware wallet in terms of durability is rain. An electronic device will short out with enough moisture. This will never happen with a notebook made of stone paper.
Many people in the world are turning to things that do not harm the environment. Hardware wallets are fabricated from resistors, chips, and other electronic parts that will eventually be thrown into the trash. They then go out into the environment where they will likely be contributors to the world's pollution.
The ghost pen
This special notebook uses a unique way of protecting what is in it. A pen that writes in special low visible ink is a cool addition to this setup. The Ghost pen writes with ink that can not be seen except under certain circumstances. Ultraviolet light is used from a different source to see what the ghost pen has written. There are certain other conditions where what has been written in the notebook can be seen, but the key is the ultraviolet light. This prevents photo snapshots and prying eyes from seeing what is written and creates an extended level of security when used in public. If you lose your notebook, there will be only a few people who would think to go get an ultraviolet light to try and see what is written inside.
Saving passphrases from your favorite secure wallet App
The Huobi wallet app is a decentralized digital wallet that many people feel has superior features. Even so, it can be augmented by the Stonebook for even more security. Other wallets such as electrum or the coinbase wallet should be considered the same. Instead of taking photos of your Mnemonic Phrase, it is better to write them securely in this notebook. Losing your smartphone with the Mnemonic Phrase photographed inside could be a disaster. Saving a Mnemonic Phrase to a cloud service is also not recommended.
The best way to think about your crypto is the same as with real money. Avoid the chance of other unscrupulous operators stealing it by having all the control in your own hands. This special notebook allows you to have all the pertinent data written down in such a way that it will securely last for generations.
