Trezor One overview
SatoshiLabs' Trezor One paved the way for the ever-growing hardware wallet industry. Launched in 2014, the original cryptocurrency security solution continues to be widely used today - despite the arrival of more modern alternatives.
For users who want to balance security and usability, the Trezor One's compact size and compatibility with different desktop, browser and mobile wallets make it a reliable crypto wallet for everyday use.
The web interface allows users to manage, send and receive thousands of coins and tokens, or to sign and verify messages. It doesn't yet support native multisig or SegWit for Bitcoin transactions, but the Trezor One can be used with Electrum to get around these limitations.
When they connect the wallet to another device, users must enter the PIN to unlock it. The numbers are mapped to a grid on the Trezor, but are masked on the screen of the other device, which must be used in conjunction with the wallet for the user to enter the PIN. This ensures that the computer, even if compromised, cannot obtain any information from the wallet.
However, as the Trezor One is more dependent on a secondary device for operations, it generates a 24-word seed sentence for added security. Seeds of various lengths can be retrieved on the device.
Another good feature is the ability to use the Trezor One as a password manager.
