Bitcoin [BTC] hardware wallet: Upgrades and updates

Bitcoin’s private keys are handled by an advanced security provided by Trezor Hardware Wallet. A hardware wallet is a special type of crypto wallet which stores the user’s private keys in a secure device and is physically maintained by the user.

Earlier this year, Trezor announced the upgrade of all their crypto devices. Today, the Trezor team finally worked the plan out.

Trezor’s official account posted:

“Releasing updates for nearly everything: Trezor Model T, Trezor One, and Trezor Wallet! Inside, you will find Zcash Overwinter, Bitcoin Cash Cashaddr, expanded coins & token support, and more. Read our blog to find out all the details:”

Koko ‘the’ apechild, a Twitter user commented:

“I was always thought it was unnatural to love a piece of hardware ….until now. Thank you.”

Trezor on their Medium explains the differences between their devices as they state:

“Main differences between TREZOR One and Model T

If you have formerly used a TREZOR One before, there are some differences you will need to get used to. The Model T uses a touchscreen, relinquishing the need for physical buttons. There are more differences, which we will address as we go through the onboarding process.”

Trezor has updated the firmware of Trezor One and Trezor Model T, with new features and adjustments reflecting changes in certain cryptocurrencies. Furthermore, Trezor has expanded the cryptocurrency support in its devices like the firmware update for Trezor Model T contains NEM and Lisk support, among other cryptocurrencies. The Trezor One has now also learned to recognize and accept new coins and tokens.

The wallet interface of Trezor upgraded along with Trezor One and Trezor Model T. The team has introduced features to export transaction history in PDF format. The estimation of conversion to fiat has been taken care of, while new currencies like Dogecoin and Vertcoin have also been introduced to the users.
