Byteduino hardware cosigner
This hardware cosigner allows to securize your funds by being a required device for a multisig wallet. Once set up and connected to internet via Wifi, you pair it with the standard Byteball GUI wallet, add it as cosigner for a multidevice wallet then authorize the signature of a transaction from a webpage on your local network. It works on ESP8266 and ESP32 boards although ESP32 is recommended since it has no practical limit for unit size you can cosign.
