CoolBitX’s Cryptocurrency Hardware Wallet Now Supports Gemini Dollar (GUSD)

The CoolWallet S provides GUSD users with secure storage and mobile app functionality via Bluetooth connectivity

CoolBitX, the Taiwan-based blockchain security company and creator of the first mobile hardware wallet for digital assets, and Gemini, a New York based cryptocurrency exchange and custodian, have announced that the CoolWallet S will support Gemini dollar (GUSD). The wallet, which looks and feels like a credit card, offers cold storage and mobility through bluetooth connectivity — allowing users to access their GUSD holding via Android or iOS device pairings. It will also be the first to automatically load and make GUSD available to users, streamlining the experience for GUSD users.

“This is a major milestone for CoolBitX, given Gemini’s focus on providing users a safe, secure and regulated cryptocurrency experience that is easily-accessible to users that are new to crypto or inexperienced,” said Michael Ou, CEO of CoolBitX. “CoolBitX was founded on these very same principles, and we’re incredibly proud to now support the first regulated stablecoin in GUSD on the CoolWallet S. Not only can GUSD users now easily manage their holdings securely, but in the years ahead we hope to make daily commercial transactions with GUSD via the CoolWallet S as simple as using any other form of NFC payments technology.”

With the integration, CoolWallet S users can not only store Gemini dollar on their wallets but can easily acquire GUSD right from the mobile app via Changelly. While other hardware wallets on the market today offer secure storage for a variety of digital assets – including other stablecoins – the CoolWallet S is the first to leverage Bluetooth connectivity to provide an additional layer of security and convenience for cryptocurrency users. Unlike traditional two-factor authentication mechanisms, with bluetooth-enabled devices the user needs to have both the mobile app and hardware wallet on hand in order to execute any transactions. This makes it near impossible for malicious actors to hack the wallet and deprive users of their GUSD, but without sacrificing the convenience and transactional exchange capabilities of the wallet itself. 

”We’re very excited that the CoolWallet S will support the Gemini dollar. We believe GUSD will be instrumental in the continued evolution of transacting value on the blockchain and we’re incredibly encouraged by its adoption by key players such as CoolBitX”, said Sarah Olsen, Gemini’s Head of Corporate Development. 

GUSD is currently available on more than 60 exchanges worldwide, and all CoolWallet S users can now manage their GUSD holdings without restriction. For more information on GUSD, please visit And for more information on CoolBit X and the CoolWallet S, please visit and, respectively.

Under this new framework, CEZA remains the principal regulating authority with ABACA acting as the enforcer.

Taiwan Legislator and Congressman Jason Hsu added: “We officially kicked off the partnership between Taiwan and ABACA, which is why I’m delighted to see ABACA also moving forward with a partnership with CoolBitX. CoolBitX is one of Taiwan’s most innovative startups, spearheading the creation of the first mobile hardware wallet on the market today and becoming an industry leader in security and compliance best practices. I fully support the CoolBitX-ABACA partnership and hope more Taiwanese blockchain startups will follow suit and invest in the Southeast Asia market.”

“We are pleased to offer CoolBitX’s technology as the first accredited cold storage solution for ABACA’s members to continue to build a more compliant and secure business environment which will appeal to all of our stakeholders,” said ABACA Director and Trustee Mel Songco. “We look forward to pushing the envelope with CoolBitX for CEZA to lead in this space and provide the safety and security needed for the global ecosystem.”
