NGRAVE GRAPHENE

Everlasting Backup Solution With Enhanced Security

Why the GRAPHENE ?

Water- & Corrosion Resistant

Two Parts

Recoverable in Case of Loss

Fire Resistant

Made of high quality stainless steel that can withstand extreme temperatures of up to 1660 degrees Celsius, your NGRAVE GRAPHENE will still be there when your house burns down. The product is also resistant against water- & corrosion damage, and is shock- & buried-proof. No more need for traditional industry practice of writing down your private key on a piece of paper. 

An Everlasting Backup

No More Paper Wallets

If you lose your hardware wallet (e.g. your NGRAVE ZERO), you need a good key backup to recover your accounts. The GRAPHENE is the most advanced recovery mechanism available.

The NGRAVE "Perfect Key" is the 64 character hexadecimal (0-9; A-F) equivalent of a 24 words mnemonic phrase / 256 bit master seed. The rationale behind this format is that it not only allows for adding a double security layer by completely splitting the key into two parts, but also for an ingenious recovery mechanism of the key. This format can at any time easily be converted into its mnemonic phrase or 256 bit equivalent.

Double The Security

Attackers Need to Find Both Parts

NGRAVE created a cryptographic puzzle of two agnostic plates: if someone finds one of the plates, he/she has zero information on your actual key. Both plates are required to recover the key. The GRAPHENE allows you to finally safe keep each part in a different location as an additional measure of security.

A Backup of Your Backup

Recover Your Backup Without 3rd Party Risk

NGRAVE introduces an ingenious answer to the question "What if I lose my backup?" by making the upper plate recoverable. Each GRAPHENE box contains a product code that can be entered online to recover the unique upper plate configuration. As NGRAVE (or any other 3rd party) has no access to your lower plate, they cannot steal your secret key. The lower plate cannot be recovered, so if you are of the forgetful type, we recommend to purchase and punch an additional lower plate.

Even Posthumous Key Recovery (coming soon)

Your Backup in 3 Easy Steps

1. Generate Your Perfect Key

Generate your unique key with the ZERO. 


From this single key, all your crypto accounts are created, and you only need this single key to recover all of them in case you lose your ZERO.


The hexadecimal format is used instead of the 24 words mnemonic phrase, because it allows for adding a double security layer splitting the key into two parts, as well as an ingenious recovery mechanism.



2. Punch Your Key in the GRAPHENE

Bring your upper and lower plate together and use the NGRAVE pen to make a hole in each of the 64 columns. Every column represents one character of the secret key.



NGRAVE's punch pen is so smooth that when you click it, it exercises just the exact required power to make a hole in the lower GRAPHENE plate.



3. Split Both Plates & Hide Them Separately

It is highly recommended to store and safeguard each plate separately if you want to benefit from the GRAPHENE's double security layer. 

"I'm amazed by how these guys are always one step ahead. For every 'what if" they have an answer ready, e.g. "What if I lose my ZERO", "What if I lose my backup?', and so on."

What Our Early Adopters Say

"The GRAPHENE makes me feel safe. Plus, I can actually reuse the upper plate to punch out different keys in different lower plates. No more worrying about my paper wallets!"
