The device was developed in 2014 by Czech company SatoshiLabs and is the first hardware wallet in the world
The basic idea of the creators was to isolate the private keys from the outside environment and prevent any leakage of data. And they succeeded. They have not recorded a single case of missing cryptocurrency in the company’s history!
Trezor has successfully provided unmatched security for hundreds of thousands of crypto-enthusiasts in over 150 countries. Any user can rest assured that their coins are fully protected against both physical and virtual theft.
Getting started with the wallet
Now let’s take a closer look at the entire Trezor Model T installation process. This is a state-of-the-art model with an intuitive user interface and enhanced security that has been tested by top-notch experts. The hardware wallet features a touch screen, faster processor and extended coin support.
The device is very lightweight and X-ray resistant, so you can easily carry it on aeroplanes.
Absolutely any user – expert or not – can easily figure out how to set up Trezor. You no longer have to think about how to protect your Bitcoins and other digital assets. Your keys always stay inside the device as it is completely insulated.
Once you receive the package, the first thing you need to pay attention to is the packaging.
Look carefully at the condition of the envelope and cellophane in which the kit box is packed.
The protective hologram, which the USB port is sealed with, must be undamaged (it is very difficult to remove it without traces). Otherwise, if your hardware wallet has been opened by someone else, contact Trezor technical support immediately and you will have your device replaced with a new one.
