    Case is a device a little smaller than your smartphone, with just a tiny screen, a keypad, a fingerprint scanner, and global SIM card. The idea is that you can send and receive Bitcoin transactions with complete security anywhere in the world, without needing to rely on a third-party service that's vulnerable to hacking (or, for that matter, super-secure but super-annoying paper wallets).

    In theory, Case seems like the perfect solution for anyone who trades Bitcoin face-to-face on a regular basis. But that's the problem -- Case is probably a solution well ahead of its time. At a price of $200, its list of potential customers all probably know each other well enough to just give each other the keys to their wallets.
