Passport Founder’s Edition is Sold Out! Preorder Batch 2 Today.
In Summer of 2020, we introduced our design for a next-generation Bitcoin hardware wallet that uses a camera and QR codes to facilitate airgapped transactions. We aimed to build a device that was beautiful, intuitive, and secure – while also being open source and assembled in the USA. We called it Passport.
We began shipping our first batch of 1000 devices, Passport Founder’s Edition, in May. We are thrilled to announce that our first batch is officially sold out!
Feedback on Passport has been overwhelmingly positive. In our recent customer survey, we received scores of comments lauding Passport’s ease of use, design, build quality, and commitment to the FOSS (free and open source software) movement.
Our users have also been spreading the good word on Twitter.
Once you use a Passport, there is no going back. Take it from the esteemed Bitcoin Q+A, who after getting his hands on a Passport and writing a fantastic getting started guide, decided to join the Foundation team in a full time role!
Passport Batch 2
We are now preparing for Passport Batch 2, which is estimated to ship in February 2022. Batch 2 will consist of 2500 devices. All long-lead time components, such as the processor and secure element, have already been procured.
The Foundation team is made up of perfectionists. So rather than continuing to ship the exact same product, we’ve made numerous improvements to the electromechanical design and manufacturing process, while keeping the security architecture and general form factor unchanged. We’ll detail these improvements over the next couple of months.
This has allowed us to substantially reduce Passport’s cost. So we are launching preorders with a special price of $199, a full $100 price drop!
As of today, you can preorder Passport Batch 2 on our website. Preorders are completely refundable, even if paid in Bitcoin.
EASIER BITCOIN PREORDERS
If you preorder in Bitcoin but change your mind, we’ll refund your entire purchase amount denominated in Bitcoin.
Likewise, if you pay in Bitcoin but the price appreciates between the day you order and the day we ship, we’ll refund your Bitcoin gains before shipping. This way you won’t have to make the difficult choice between paying in Bitcoin to preserve your privacy or losing out on potential Bitcoin gains between now and February!
Founder’s Edition Customers
To our Founder’s Edition customers – we massively appreciate your support and faith in us. Passport Batch 2 won’t ship for 3 months, but we still understand that a $100 price drop is significant. Therefore we’ll be emailing you in the next few days a 21% discount off a Passport Batch 2 unit, in case you want to buy a new Passport for yourself or for a family member.
Additionally, though Passport Batch 2 will introduce numerous improvements, Passport Founder’s Edition will continue to receive regular firmware updates! We’re excited to keep improving your Passport experience as time goes by.
