You may not have heard yet, but there is a financial revolution coming.
Millions of people have become millionaires overnight (OK, maybe it took a few years) investing in cryptocurrencies; and the one you’ve most likely heard about in the news is Bitcoin.
Bitcoin is in the process of going through a time of uncertainty because of a possible programming upgrade, that may or may not happen, that could start to take place after August 1st, but may not (it is a saga worthy of investigation), and this uncertainty is a good reminder to keep up with a really good crypto-habit: storing your coins in an offline wallet and then using a waterproof, Faraday cage product for the ultimate protection for said wallet.
If you’re going to store a small (or large) fortune in it, adding additional layers of security for it is a good investment - in your investment!
If you keep your coins on an exchange, then those are also at great risk, as a handful of exchanges have been “robbed” even.
For instance, back in February of 2014, an exchange calledMt. Gox, which was handling over 70% of all Bitcoin transactions worldwide at the time, had approximately 850,000 Bitcoins stolen and had to file bankruptcy protection and shutdown. Very few customers were made whole after, while most lost everything they had in the exchange.
A more recent example of exchange hacking comes from this past week, in fact, whenBTC-e, another cryptocurrency exchange, suddenly shut down its website when one of its founders was arrested in Greece for laundering Bitcoins - many of which are thought to be from the Mt. Gox hack!
If you want a real life case of “truth is stranger than fiction”, then look no further than the craziness that surrounds this newfound source of vast wealth. Where money is found, sin will follow, and these new currencies are certainly no exception.
These types of robberies and vulnerabilities demand the use of an offline wallet. Not only do you want to store your keys somewhere safe, but this storage device should also be “air gapped”, meaning that it has no way to be wirelessly connected to the Internet. This is, by far, the safest and most reliable way to store your keys.
The short answer is: yes.
If you are going to the trouble of implementing and keeping up with this excellent habit of storing your cryptocurrencies or altcoins in an offline wallet, then why not add on a few more layers of protection in one inexpensive product?
Think about it. Popular offline wallet devices like the Ledger Wallet Nano or Treznor are electronic devices and have the usual vulnerabilities - such as getting them wet.
And while these devices use a USB connection in order to work, lets not put it past enterprising hackers to develop a way of getting to these vast collections of wealth wirelessly. You wouldn’t think your wireless entry key on your car could make it vulnerable tocar theft, but it’s a fact and the world we live in.
Do you really want to leave your life savings (tip: never invest more than you can afford to set on fire) in a device that could possibly get wet and forever damaged or even hacked?
If only there were a product that solves both of these problems…
Welcome to the only dry bag on the market today that also serves as a Faraday cage: The10 Liter Faraday Dry Bag
Made with military-grade 210D Nylon with TPU backing and RF welded waterproof seams, and lined with a proprietary metallic shielding fabric that blocks ALL wireless signals to and from your offline cryptocurrency wallet, our 10 Liter Faraday Dry Bag adds critical layers of protection: waterproof, signalproof, and physical protection as well.
All you have to do is drop your offline wallet inside the bag, roll down the top at least 3 times tightly, and clip together using the fasteners; and your Treznor will be safe from getting wet, dropped, or even hacked.
If your kids’ college funds are wrapped up in that wallet (please, for the love of God - do not do this!), another $89.95 to ensure it stays there is not only a good idea, but another good investment.
Think of it as a stop-limit order. If we normally insulate ourselves from risk when possible with a stop-limit order that sells our stake before we incur too much loss during a downswing, then we should be insulating ourselves from the physical risk of getting our offline wallets wet, permanently damaged, or even hacked.

Music is a necessity for me. My i-pod needs protection also, as my info is on it as well as my music. This sleeve fits it perfect.
I had to upgrade my phone and was extremely concerned with the 5G capabilities. This bag completely blocks ALL signals. I place my phone in my bag when I go to bed at night! Would 100% not only purchase again, but would purchase for friends/family, too! 5 stars!!
Perfect for blocking signals and also a day on the boat. 10/10 definitely recommend.
A must have for anyone whom privacy is important 5 star product
Thank you guys for supporting the fight for our right to privacy and combating mass surve.. Keep up the good work, the bag is amazing quality and I love the privacy stickers. Thanks a lot SLNT
I bought 4 Faraday Silent Pockets after reading about car fob venerability. I feel must more secure now. Get yours today to stop thieves from duplicating your fob’s signal anywhere!
I absolutely love my backpack I purchased… we need to protect our privacy now more than ever. I don’t travel without this & neither should you 😎
This is definitely a great bag for your phone. It sure seems to block everything I have tried to throw at it. Will be purchasing more!
Seems to work as expected. Hope to never do a hard test. Feel my backups are now well protected.
I purchased the SLNT pocket that an iphone 11 with an Otter Box fits in. The quality of the finished product is HIGH. I'm not addicted to my phone, so this allows me to place the phone in the pocket before traveling about daily without dropping digital crumbs along the way that could be used to reverse engineer my personal movements, locations and destinations with greater ease. I value my privacy due it being a fundamental human right despite what any judge or agency claims to the contrary.
I was very pleased to realize that this particular SLNT fits into my back pants pocket!!! The width is 'just right'. Now that's attention to detail. This is my 3rd SLNT and I recommend them to a lot of folks. Most have never heard of such a product, let alone the reason to have one and use it.
To anyone considering these products, as others have said, just get it! We live in an age where we need it. Location tracking is digital stalking. I really appreciate that some dirtbag won't be able to pull info out of my device either. Thank You SLNT, nice job.
Excellent quality, handsome, fit well, I like them and use them. Good to have protection.
Live in a condominium area. Thank you for giving me back my privacy!!
My laptop is now waterproof, padded and protected from solar flares, EMP's, hackers and trackers.
And it looks good too
4-5 starts.... well made, great function ...not only do I feel like I've helped secure my privacy but when I place the phone in the pocket I am able to disconnect from tech and have quiet private time with less stress and fewer distractions. Psychologically its been a great aid to me.
The Silent Pocket is a fantastic accessory, I am sleeping better with lack of EMF in the room and knowing that my privacy is literally in my hands.
Shipping took very little time, very happy!
