WHIM – Karatbars announces blockchain-powered laptop

Blockchain-powered laptop meets the highest requirements for confidentiality and data security.

Karatbars International has announced the launch of the upcoming WHIM laptop. The goal of the company is to offer a portable computing device featuring the latest industry standards, while simultaneously ensuring unmatched security specifications provided through blockchain technology.

The WHIM laptop comes with an 8th Generation Intel Core i3 processor, a 512GB SSD, and a 14.1-inch display. Moreover, the device features several hardware security options, including a fingerprint scanner, Face ID, and a physical encryption key. The heart of the WHIM is a custom operating system called Cryptodata OS, programmed by the blockchain developing company Cryptodata, which grants users access to novel blockchain-powered protection features available for data storage, web navigation, and communication.

Cryptodata OS is a compact operating system with powerful functionality, featuring Voice Over Blockchain Protocol (VOBP), blockchain-encryption for emails and data, as well as Worm Guard, a unique security software patented by Cryptodata. Through these implementations, Cryptodata aims to establish a highly secured, integrated, and shared ecosystem across devices, including its blockchain smartphone IMpulse K1.

Ovidiu Toma, the CEO of Cryptodata, believes that the world needs higher security standards. “With surveillance measures and exposure to hacking attacks basically increasing in every corner of the globe, the demand for extraordinary privacy standards is in a constant uptrend,” he said. “In our most recent collaboration with Karatbars, we aim to provide a viable solution to those who are not willing to compromise confidentiality and data security.”

During the past decade, data leaks, as seen on numerous online platforms, as well as controversial governmental observation in different countries, became regular affairs in contemporary media outlets. According to a survey conducted by Pew Research Center in 2014, 91 percent of Americans think that people have lost control over their data.

“With a continuously growing demand for highest security in communication devices, we believe that it is about time to introduce the countless benefits of blockchain technology to commonly used hard- and software,” said Dr. h.c. Harald Seiz, CEO of Karatbars.
