Matthew Wilson is a 17-year-old learner who became interested in cryptocurrency four years ago. He joins Keri Miller on Keri's Couch talking about the special inventions he made to protect traders' crypto.

But he delved more into the world of crypto last year when we had so much time on our hands during the strict COVID-19 lockdown. He researched why so many crypto holders lost billions due to lax security.

Wilson’s solution is simple and practical, and leans on technology already in use by banks.

Whenever banks issue a new credit card, the new PIN is inscribed using PIN-tab technology. The computer-generated PIN is revealed when you peel back a covering sheet.

CRPT Secure provides a disaster backup recovery plan for crypto investors by storing their 12, 18 or 24-word recovery phrases in a safe and confidential format.

The recovery phrases are stored on three or four pages (depending on the number of words), which are then stored at different physical and secret locations.

These pages are retrieved from the different locations and returned to the crypto owner, ensuring that their seed phrases can never be compromised, hacked or guessed at.
