Overview of Trezor hardware wallet
What is Trezor hardware wallet?
Trezor hardware wallet is the Trezor company‘s hardware wallet – an offline cryptocurrency wallet that stores and protects the Private Key of your funds away from the internet. If you make any transactions from a hardware wallet, the confirmation of that will be in an offline environment.
Why should we use a hardware wallet?
In the crypto market where hacks and thefts are something you're exposed to in the newspaper everyday, keeping your assets away from the internet is necessary. With its inaccessible feature, many users have begun to look into hardware wallet as a solution for storing assets to minimize the risk of attacks by a hacker from the internet.
Hardware wallets are less convenient than hot wallets because they must be turned on and then connected to the internet. Having to use two devices at the same time, along with the risk of damage, loss or theft will cost you between $50 and $200 to continue using that device.
