Jack Dorsey's company, Block, announced that the Bitcoin (BTC) wallet they created will have a fingerprint sensor.
“We are creating a wallet that will be easy to use for everyone.” In the statement, it was stated that the wallet will have a fingerprint feature and the transactions will be confirmed in this way.
The company made the following statements in the statement:
“For transactions that require wallet hardware, we want our customers to unlock their wallets securely and easily. This is a combination that hasn't been in the market in the past.”

The device will have a rechargeable lithium polymer battery and will use USB-C as a port. Block stated that he did not want to create a new interface that needs to be learned in order to use the wallet, and informed that the wallet will not have a screen.
Block, which previously used the Square name, announced its Bitcoin hardware wallet plan last June. Dorsey said that at that time they dreamed of a wallet that was suitable for mobile phones, quickly and where everyone could easily access their funds.
