Tangem is a Swiss maker of hardware wallets that Shiba Inu partnered with in order to start making their own SHIB-branded wallets. The first batch of SHIB wallets counted 5,000 units and it was pre-ordered very quickly.
These wallets will allow users to benefit from storing, buying and selling more than 6,000 cryptos, including Shiba Inu, providing access to DeFi, NFTs and dexes.
The wallet looks like a bank card and is made of plastic. Two backup cards will ensure that a user will be able to keep his crypto securely.

The number of new wallets seems to be pumped by the approaching launch of the Shibarium mainnet which, as the lead developer Shytoshi Kusama hinted, may take place in Canada in mid-August.
