Trezor Model T Review | The Ascent by Motley Fool

Top perks

Cold storage for maximum security

In terms of security, the Trezor Model T is about as good as it gets. Since it’s a hardware wallet, it uses cold storage, meaning your private crypto keys are kept offline. That eliminates the risk of your wallet being hacked. Trezor also has an excellent reputation, and its wallets are known for being secure.

Easy-to-use touchscreen display

One of the big advantages the Trezor Model T has over most hardware wallets is a large touchscreen display. It’s much faster to type using this touchscreen than it is on the typical hardware wallet, where you only have two buttons and need to cycle through number options to enter your PIN code.

Compatible with computers and mobile devices

Trezor devices support all major computer operating systems, including Windows, Mac, and Linux. They also support Android mobile devices, with Apple mobile devices being the one notable omission.

Supports over 1,200 cryptocurrencies

The Trezor Model T supports quite a few types of cryptocurrency for a hardware wallet. It’s not the best in this regard, as Ledger wallets support over 5,500, and some digital wallets support over 1 million. Still, there’s plenty of cryptocurrencies you’ll be able to store with this Trezor wallet.

NFT storage

If you own any non-fungible tokens, you can keep them safe with a Trezor Model T. They just need to exist on a blockchain network that’s compatible with the Trezor device firmware. The only caveat is that the Trezor Suite app can’t secure NFTs, so you need to manage them by connecting your wallet to a third-party app, such as Metamask.

Digital identity and password management

More than a crypto wallet, the Trezor Model T can also be used as a password manager and as a factor in two-factor authentication (2FA) and multi-factor authentication. Extras like these make the wallet more useful and help justify the higher price tag.

The Trezor Model T has a slot for a microSD card, which you can use as an additional security measure. When you enable this feature, the Trezor wallet is bound to the microSD card and can only be unlocked if the card is inserted. You can disable this feature at any time after unlocking your Trezor.
