Minimalist, sleek and designed for the new economy, Omura is a crypto-first lifestyle brand that caters to the nomadic lifestyle of early cryptocurrency pioneers. Founded by Leanne Luce, who is an exoskeleton designer, writer, and technologist, the name Omura is named after a rare species of whale found in the Pacific and is a play on the concept of a bitcoin whale.
A Different Kind Of Wearable
San Francisco based Leanne was inspired to create the Omura wearable after she noticed that many attendees were wearing their hardware wallets around their neck on a shoestring or a lanyard. For her, designing a wearable solution built for the lifestyle of cryptocurrency enthusiasts made a lot of sense. “I remember the first two conferences I went to and the conferences I went to throughout the year, [the community] slowly becoming richer with designers,” Luce told International Business Times. “There is still this opportunity as it enters the more mainstream culture to design products for this space.”

Although cold storage hardware wallets are the recommended method for safe storage of cryptocurrency, the Omura wearable cryptocurrency pendants are the perfect cover for your Ledger Nano S. The Ledger Wallet, which has garnered the trust of the blockchain community, serves as the core technology in the Omura Pendant. These hardware wallets are equipped with high-security hardware and software that never touches the internet.
If you are wondering what is a Ledger Nano S, simply put a Ledger Nano S is a Bitcoin, Ethereum and Altcoins hardware wallet. It is based on robust safety features for storing cryptographic assets and securing digital payments. It connects to any computer (USB) and embeds a secure OLED display to double-check and confirm each transaction with a single tap on its side buttons.
Omura’s first product is the Omura Pendant. With shipping scheduled from 28 March 2018, the necklaces priced from $80 for the standard wearable to $3,500 for the 14K gold pendant, we recommend the one necklace that is at the investment price of $150. For your moolah, you will receive USB Charging Cable, The Ledger Nano S Cold Storage Hardware Wallet, Leather Cord Necklace with Sterling Silver Clasp and Omura Minimalist Pendant Stainless Steel. Currently, Omura is working on developing different kinds of wearable accessories, streamlining their personalisation process, and even introducing new features to the Omura product line. Biometrics as a security feature? I guess Leanne won’t keep us waiting too long before we find out!
