Do I need a hardware wallet to use Unchained Capital products?

At this time you must have at least 1 hardware wallet to use Unchained Capital vaults, although loans can be taken with either 1 hardware wallet or without a hardware wallet.

We recommend using 2 hardware wallets with vaults so that you may always retain majority control of your multisignature vault. It's important to have custody over your bitcoin.

We do not have plans to support paper wallets or other methods of controlling private keys outside of hardware wallets at this time.
