It’s been quite a while since I’ve done a tutorial for the Trezor. Their first device was launched in August 2014 (by SatoshiLabs) and it was the world’s first Bitcoin hardware wallet. It offers a combination of secure offline cold storage, as well as the ability to spend tokens with a similar convenience as a hot wallet.
There are two models currently on the market – “Trezor One” and “Model T”
In this video I will be showing you the latest – model T, with the latest firmware. It has a touch screen functionality, which is an upgrade from the older, Model One. It also incorporates instant coin-swap function with the help of third party services like Shapeshift and Changelly – both of which I have reviewed in my previous videos and in the past it was criticized for the small selection of coins it supported but the year is 2019 and you will find that the latest firmware of both devices supports over 1000 cryptocurrencies, so this is no longer an issue.
So this is my complete step-by-step tutorial from start to finish and I will be showing you how to get it set-up, key features and how to wipe out the device (should you need to) and also how to restore it in case you had it damaged and need to use a new device with the old device information so you do not loose your coins.
Hope you’ll enjoy this guide and it will help you with the setting up of your device.
