About us

Shift Crypto is a privately-held company based in Zurich, Switzerland. Our team of Bitcoin contributors, crypto experts, and security engineers builds products that enable customers to enjoy a stress-free journey from novice to mastery level of cryptocurrency management.

The BitBox02, our second generation hardware wallet, lets users store, protect, and transact Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies with ease - along with its software companion, the BitBoxApp.


At Shift Crypto, we believe everyone deserves financial sovereignty. Bitcoin’s unique properties of decentralization, and censorship-resistance achieve this by creating immutable money. This technological breakthrough will reshape society in unforeseen ways.

Our mission is to empower individuals to participate in the emerging cryptocurrencies ecosystem. We equip users with simple and secure hardware & software products that enable financial sovereignty.

The BitBox hardware wallet line started by Douglas Bakkum and Jonas Schnelli in 2015 with the original BitBox01, formally known as the Digital BitBox. The BitBox01 was one of the first hardware wallets available on the market.

In 2019, the BitBox02 was released. The hardware wallet combines state of the art security with a focus on usability and ease-of-use to create a truly compelling product for the next generation of bitcoin and cryptocurrency users.

We continuously bring new features and improvements to our users with updates to the BitBoxApp and BitBox02 firmware.

Our secure dual-chip architecture reflects our values as a Swiss open-source security company: it enables the use of a secure chip for physical device hardening in combination with fully open-source firmware. With its small form factor and no visible screen when powered off, the BitBox02 is a very discreet device. Made in Switzerland, it inherits our deep appreciation of quality and privacy.
