8. Experts Say Billfodl is Better


We feel that anyone with significant amount of cryptocurrency who is relying on paper seeds as backups should consider a Billfodl. For a few bucks, it is a rather cheap insurance policy against many potential threats that paper backup seeds don’t.

Jordan Tuwiner



For what it aims to achieve, the Billfodl device accomplishes everything – it’s cheaper than the competition, uses better materials and is better designed. That makes it the best product on the market for storing your keys or seed words.

Oliver Dale



Billfodl is my 'go to' for deep cold storage and the only long term storage solution I trust. I feel safer knowing my seed fragments can withstand fire, flood and pretty much anything else nature can throw at is. Billfodl's quality is second to none!

Mike Olthoff



With Billfodl offering so many features for half of the price, would it still be a good idea to get (one of their competitors)? Billfodl has raised the bar considerably. Let’s be objective – Billfodl offers a superior product at a considerably lower price.
