Payments firm Block (SQ), formerly known as Square, said that the bitcoin wallet it is building will enable fingerprint sensors for transactions, according to a company blog post on Friday.
  • “For transactions that require using the wallet hardware, we want our customers to be able to unlock their wallets securely, but with ease – an unlikely combination that historically has not existed in the market,” the company said in the post.
  • The hardware component of the wallet will use a rechargeable lithium polymer battery and USB-C port to power the device.
  • The wallet will not have a display as Block said it doesn’t want to create a new interface that customers will need to learn in order to use the wallet.
  • Block first announced last July that it was moving forward with plans to build a bitcoin hardware wallet.
