TREZOR is one of the most trusted and secure way to store your bitcoins. The following guide will walk you through which coins and tokens are currently being supported by the TREZOR including links to the TREZOR site for further explanation.
It’s important to isolate your private keys into the safety of TREZOR to ensure you can enjoy Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies with far less risk than keeping them on an exchange or in a hot storage wallet. By using the TREZOR, secrets like your private keys are never exposed. All sensitive operations are isolated inside your hardware wallet within a state-of-the-art secure element, locked by a PIN code.
By using a cold storage hardware wallet like the TREZOR, your funds are stored offline and transactions can’t be tampered with. Cold storage refers to any type of wallet that is stored offline, independent of any internet connection. Because of this feature, it cannot be hacked remotely. These funds can only be accessed and verified physically on the embedded screen by the wallet owner with the appropriate password information.
