When Max Mellenbruch started creating Kialara ten years ago, few people had heard much about bitcoin, let alone the art of cryptography. The idea of a cold storage wallet to preserve private keys over a long period of time, protecting them from physical damage, was quite innovative for its time.
A decade later, the concept, designed in such a way that it cannot be unlocked without being destroyed, has gained the admiration of a loyal customer base eager to collect the different aesthetic and conceptual themes developed for each version. Besides protecting the delicately hand-assembled shell of precision-machined SUS304 stainless steel, the beauty itself plays the role of keeping bitcoin balances intact, turning Kialara into an interesting piece of Contemporary art.
The latest version , Kialara builders999 monocrystalline silicon, perhaps the most important technological material of the past few decades. The protagonist is a small robot made up of mining parts that represent the “constant race to the block” of every miner that makes up the worldwide Bitcoin network.
The upcoming version will mark a transition towards a non-trusted wallet model enabled by a self-guarding architecture. With this release, Kialara is responding to the growing Bitcoin trend, as the supply of BTC held outside of centralized exchanges continues to increase. The Builders edition is available for purchase on Kialara website Now that individuals can also subscribe to Kialara’s mailing list and be notified when a new version is released.
Collectors appreciate Kialara’s remarkable integration of innovative cold storage engineering and world-class fine art. This integration is so absolute that the only way for owners to access the BTC they funded is to destroy the art. This is the Chillara paradox – and it’s genius. Kialara provides not only an unprecedented level of physical protection, but also a strong aesthetic and psychological drive to hold onto crypto wealth.
