Hardware Wallet Restoration Experience – Ledger Vs Ellipal Vs Keevo
Using a hardware wallet to secure your crypto currency is a very smart thing to do. However, when buying a wallet, most users don’t consider the restoration process. If something happens to your wallet, you will need to get a replacement and do a restore with the seed phase backup.
The restore process is pretty straight forward. You input the 12/18/24 seed words into the new wallet and it will restore. However, the user experience between different hardware wallets varies widely.
In this video, I share the experience of restoring three popular crypto currency hardware wallets. The wallets used in this comparison are the Ledger Nano X, Ellipal Titan and Keevo Model 1. The restoration experience range from really easy to extremely frustrating.
