Crypto Stick is looking for Beta Testers

The developers of the Crypto Stick are working hard to finish its version 1.4. They are looking for volunteers who are willing to help during their beta test.

To cover the production costs of the test device, it will be sold for €50.

[Version 1.4] is of a smaller size and contains an additional one-time-password feature. This enables you to securely login to Google, Dropbox, Amazon Web Service and many more systems compatible to OATH and Google Authenticator. The device will be shipped without casing but you will get free firmware updates, direct support, and the option to exchange it for a final version (with casing) for a discounted price.
