Trezor: the Model T hardware wallet guide

The Swiss company Trezor has paid us homage to their Model T wallet hardware, which is why we are writing a little guide to it today.

Perhaps one of the safest ways to store your crypto is to use a wallet hardware, as your private keys will be in your hands and can be easily transported anywhere.

In particular, in the Trezor Model T we can store Bitcoin, Litecoin, Ethereum, Dash, Zcash, NEM, Monero, Expanse, Ubiq, all the ERC20 tokens and 500 other different cryptos.

With their claim „The safe place for your coins“ in plain sight on the box, let’s open it to examine the contents.

But first a note: make sure you 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 does not lack a fair amount of integrated memory and the package also includes the new Type-C USB interface for connection to the PC.

In the package we will also find some nice black and white stickers and of course the instructions, although they are only in English.

In addition, Trezor has given us a nice USB-c keyring for charging your phone using your PC.

How the Trezor T wallet works
However, the instructions in English are very clear and it is quite intuitive to use this hardware wallet.

First of all it must be said that the 0.83 inch screen helps a lot and therefore the information shown on the device is more visible than the Ledger or Trezor’s previous model.

Obviously the device can be used for all computers so for MAC OS X, Linux and Windows.

The seed
It supports three of the most widely used seed formats, namely BIP32/39 and 44, in order to make the import procedure for private keys taken from other wallets easier and more immediate.
