Trezor: a guide to the Model T hardware wallet
The Swiss company Trezor has honoured us with their Model T hardware wallet, and so here’s a brief guide.
Perhaps one of the safest ways to store crypto is to use a hardware wallet, as the private keys will be in the user’s hands and can be easily transported anywhere.
In particular, the Trezor Model T can store Bitcoin, Litecoin, Ethereum, Dash, Zcash, NEM, Monero, Expanse, Ubiq, all the ERC20 tokens and 500 other different crypto assets.
Their claim “The safe place for your coins” is displayed on the box, so let’s open it to examine the contents.
But first a remark: make sure to buy these tools on the official website and not from retailers, as the latter may have tampered with the devices.
The contents of the box
Trezor released the Trezor Model T in 2019. It is a device with a 0.83-inch colour LCD display, equipped with a touchscreen and a resolution of 240 x 240 pixels.
The Trezor T features a fair amount of integrated memory and the new Type-C USB connector is also included in the box.
The package also contains nice black and white stickers and of course the instructions, which are only in English.
In addition, Trezor has gifted us with a nice USB-C keyring for charging the phone using the PC.
How does the Trezor T wallet work?
The instructions are very clear and using this hardware wallet is quite intuitive.
Most importantly it must be said that the 0.83″ screen helps a lot and therefore the information shown on the device is more visible compared to the Ledger Nano or Trezor’s previous model.
Obviously, the device can be used with all computers, so for MAC OS X, Linux and Windows.
It supports three of the most used seed formats, BIP32/39 and 44, making it easier and more immediate to import private keys taken from other wallets.
