Cryptocurrency Fashion for the New Economy

Back in May, I wrote a post about Cryptocurrency Hardware Wallets, the Future of Wearables. Today, I’m introducing Omura. Omura’s first product, the Omura Pendant, is a sleek cover for your Ledger Nano S. It’s designed to be unobtrusive, elegant and worn.

Omura is a crypto-first lifestyle brand tailored to the needs of the new economy. We cater to the minimalist, nomadic lifestyle of early cryptocurrency pioneers.

Why ‘Omura’?

Omura is named after Omura’s whale, a rare species of whale found in the Pacific. You’ve probably heard the term ‘Bitcoin Whale’ used to describe cryptocurrency holders that have large quantities of cryptocurrency. When they make large purchases and sales, the entire currency experiences a surge or a dip in price. (Read more on Bitcoin Whales.)

 

Cryptocurrency Culture

After attending conference after conference and observing people wearing the Ledger Nano S around their neck on a lanyard, we decided to take hardware wallets up a notch in style.

We chose to work with the Ledger Nano S because it provides the most functionality for the small form factor. It has a minimalist aesthetic and it is easy to use. We are confident in the hardware and software for it’s robust security; which is the most important consideration in shopping for a hardware wallet.
