Today, my Mycelium Entropy arrived. I was excited about this one -- a simple device designed to do one simple thing.
Here are my initial thoughts:
Nice packaging. Decent enough build quality. What's that on the right side?
These are just initial impressions, but man am I disappointed with the presentation and apparent lack of confidence in their own product.
What's the purpose of the holographic sticker? It fails miserably as a tamper-evident seal. Its just to look pretty? Its got Mycelium branding, so some (non-insignificant) part of the price of this device went to a shiny sticker that some folks might interpret incorrectly as adding to its security. blech.
This is another Bitcoin hardware company throwing around that term 'open source'. Sure, there's a repo with some code, but the way I found out what processor was running inside was by disassembling mine.
More to come.
Drop your questions for me in the comments section.
