To help me see how my coins are spread, I can use the notes section to keep a tally. I find this especially helpful for keeping track of coins in MyEtherWallet, a paper wallet that stores both Ethereum and ERC20 tokens.

Cryptocurrency addresses

Much like a bank account, if someone in my family wants to send me crypto, they’ll need to know my wallet address and the currency tied to it. 1Password covers that, too. I simply create a Bank Account item and name it after the currency. I use the name of the wallet for the bank, and insert my wallet address into the account number field. Then I just add it to our Shared vault so it’s there whenever they need it.Cryptocurrency address Bank Account item

Organise your crypto with tags

I have a lot of data in my vaults, and with my crypto items growing rapidly, I need a good way to organise them. Luckily, that’s a simple fix. All I need to do is tag them crypto and I can see everything at a glance.

Pay for your 1Password account with crypto

If you ever wanted to pay for your 1Password account with crypto, now you can. We’ve released 1Password Gift Cards as an alternative payment option, which you can purchase with Bitcoin, Ethereum, Litecoin, and Bitcoin Cash. When you get to the checkout, choose Coinbase as your payment method and complete your order in the cryptocurrency of your choice. Once your payment has cleared and you’ve received your gift card, you can redeem it by adding the code to your Billing page.

1Password is an essential tool for managing cryptocurrency – one that I’d be completely lost without. Thanks to the flexibility of custom fields, I can save my credentials in a format that makes sense for me, and retrieve them with ease. And I can sleep soundly knowing my data is protected by 1Password’s security model.

We’d love to add some new cryptocurrency templates in a future release, so please let us know in the comments what strategies you use to manage yours.
