Trezor One Wallet Review – Table of Contents
The Trezor One hardware wallet has been around since 2013, helping crypto hodlers protect their assets in a safe, offline environment. On September 21st, SatoshiLabs announced the original bitcoin hardware wallet would be discounted by 23 percent.
As part of a celebration of their five-year anniversary and as a way to market the trailblazing wallet to newcomers to cryptocurrency, Trezor One’s price drop marks a new era for the company; now offering a premium model, the recently released Trezor T, and the Trezor One. Let’s look at the Trezor One.
Build for Security
The Trezor One hardware wallet was built with security in mind. Keep your private keys in an offline environment, and your coins can’t get stolen. The Prague-based SatoshiLabs’ original wallet has both CE and RoHS-certified safety certifications, and a 120MHz embedded ARM Cortex M3 processor inside.
Designed for Simplicity
Its most prominent feature is its simplicity of use. With a display large enough to hold six lines of text–enough to include all the information you’d need to verify a transaction–it is operated by two buttons.
More than 1000 coins supported
The Trezor One hardware wallet supports more than 1000 coins, notably bitcoin, litecoin, Ethereum, Dash, Zcash, NEM, and all ERC20 tokens. It also supports bitcoin cash, a technical challenge for the company in itself. Unlike Ledger Hardware Wallet, Trezor can accommodate as many coins as you want at the same time, without the need to remove and re-add apps.
This may sound uncommon for a hardware wallet review, but what I found most impressive about the Trezor One was the way it was delivered. Amazon created “frustration-free packaging” to reduce packaging and make getting items out of packaging easy. Possibly in response to the infamous Curb Your Enthusiasm debacle Larry David strolled us through.
SatoshiLabs does not believe in frustration-free packaging. In fact, they appear more committed to frustration-guaranteed packaging. The cardboard box the Trezor One comes in is wrapped in plastic. It is then hologram sealed at two ends. And each of the four edges of the box is glued together. There is no getting inside that thing without tearing it apart, Larry David style.
In what might seem a juvenile observation, nothing tells me that what I just bought has not tampered with more than the fact that it is probably easier to cross the DMZ and not get shot than it is to wrangle the Trezor One out of its receptacle.
