ECOMI Secure Wallet
Our wallet review process
We examine wallets starting at the code level and continue all the way up to the finished app that lives on your device. Provided below is an outline of each of these steps along with security tips for you and general test results.
Application build test result
ECOMI’s Secure Wallet was announced on May 7, 2018 through bitcointalk.org.
Its hardware is powered by CoolBitX, the same manufacturer for the CoolWalletS bitcoin hardware wallet.
The card communicates via BlueTooth with a companion app.
It has the following components:
- E-paper Display
- LED Indicator
- Secure Element
- Power / Confirmation button
- Charging Terminals
- Wireless Connector
A video introduction of the product is available on YouTube.
The recovery seed were initially in the form of numbers. A later update allowed users to convert to an alphabetical seed.
It should be noted that the seed phrases are generated and later on confirmed, on the companion app on the phone.
Like the CoolWalletS,
the private key has to be brought onto a different system that doesn’t necessarily share all the desired aspects of a hardware wallet.

Do your own research
In addition to reading our analysis, it is important to do your own checks. Before transferring any bitcoin to your wallet, look up reviews for the wallet you want to use. They should be easy to find. If they aren't, that itself is a reason to be extra careful.
