Should I use a Trezor Hardware Wallet for my CryptoCurrencies?
Cryptocurrencies are all the rage at the moment. The media is full of ‘block chain this’ and ‘bitcoin that’. There is a lot of speculation about an impending (or even current!) Cryptocurrency bubble. I’ve got some thoughts on that (yes, we may be in a bubble, and no, it matters less than you think!)
I’ve got some posts planned for the next couple of episodes on the simple answer on the simple answer to ‘What is a block chain’, ‘and ‘What is a Crypto Currency’ but first, I must confess that I’ve become very interested in cryptocurrencies myself, and as part of the self education process, I’ve done some study (even becoming a Certificated Bitcoin Professional myself!)
There are a number of ways to store your bitcoins (including holding them in your brain!) But probably the safest is a hardware wallet.
A few days ago I bought a Trezor Hardware Wallet and decided to do an unboxing. Like this website, the what’s in the box is pretty simple.
The Simple Answer
So the questions is, should I use a hardware wallet? The simple answer is yes, and I recommend the Trezor.
I’m very satisfied with the Trezor wallet, and have no problem recommending one. If you are located in Australia, I can recommend www.trezoraustralia.com.au. I ordered the trezor on a Sunday night and it arrived the next afternoon, and I’m located in a rural area.
If you are overseas, then you can get one from Amazon.
