The world of cryptocurrencies continues to thrive and every day more and more news, ideas and inventions come out about them. Everyone wants to do business with this trend, whether it’s with online projects or with suitable products, that’s why they always surprise us with things that we never even imagined could be created.
In today’s case, we are going to see a project where we can convert an old GameBoy into a bitcoin wallet with a cartridge specially designed for it.
How it works?
The project is called The Game Wallet, it is in the creation phase and its operation is very simple. Using a Game Boy cartridge that functions as an offline cryptocurrency wallet.
For now, as I mentioned, it is in production and development, the final details are still a mystery, but the progress they have released gives us the opportunity to see how we would use a game like Pokemon to collect our seed recovery in a pretty funny. On? Well, I don’t know, nor do I think anyone thinks you’re going to have it hidden in a Game Boy cartridge.
The words of its creator regarding its operation and future intentions were as follows.
“So we are producing a real physical cartridge that allows you to use your GameBoy as a cold storage wallet, generate mnemonic phrases and store them safely offline. No firmware update.”
From its official page you can subscribe to the waiting list in order to have all the news about the evolution of the project and to be one of the first to have the “game” if you are interested in these topics and want to try it yourself.

It should be commented that he the code will be completely open (open source) which is referred to on the web with the following words.
“Generating randomness securely will always be vital to our digital lives. Recent events have created uncertainty around hardware wallets, demonstrating the need for a simple, low-tech alternative.
The project is very interesting, one might wonder if it will be useful or if it will just be something curious that does not go beyond the collection, but what must be said is that people have some pretty weird ideas and they catch our attention. Hopefully we will soon see these cartridges on the market and we can analyze them personally to give you a real opinion.
