What is TREZOR?

Think of it as a secure USB dongle that can hold your bitcoin, and other crypto-coins.

  • Do not leave them on the web site you purchased them from, our opinion only.
  • Sites are hacked all the time especially when they hold bitcoins!
  • Companies go out of business..

YOU have to secure your bitcoin.

This is why you need a Trezor - It can't be hacked via your computer.

If you lose it you can replace it and the bitcoin that you had stored on it via your secret words.

Even if a hacker gets your passcode number (hacks your PC) he can't enter it without having your Trezor too. When you enter your passcode number you have to match the number you enter on the PC with the random positions the numbers appear on in the Trezor's screen.

Below. Trezor shows you the LOCATION that you need to click the numbers on your PC as per above image.

For example to enter the number 2 it would be clicked in the centre square in this example.

Enter Bitcoin Pin

The small Trezor screen shows you for example that to enter "2" you'd click (on your PC) in the position where say 5 would be. This changes every time for every number so if you don't have the Trezor you can't log onto your account.

You can revover your Trezor via 24 secret words you need to keep in a safe place. If someone finds your list of 24 words they can recover it and steal your bitcoins. So the thing to do is change a few words and only you and your family know which words you changed. The word changes need to be in drummed into trusted's memories!

"Dog was changed to cat" but not as obvious as that.

TREZOR is a single purpose device which allows you to make secure Bitcoin transactions. With TREZOR, transactions are completely safe even when initiated on a compromised or vulnerable computer. Because the use of TREZOR is very easy and intuitive we believe it will help Bitcoin adoption among people not familiar with the security issues.

How does TREZOR work?

The Bitcoin protocol works by sending signed notes of payment across the Internet. These messages (which are referred to as Transactions) are signed using a special algorithm. In order to sign a Bitcoin transaction, you need to have a special key or password. TREZOR holds that key. Since TREZOR’s job is to help you securely sign Transaction messages, you can think of your TREZOR as a modern-day stamp.

TREZOR is better than an ordinary mechanical stamping mechanism, however. Each TREZOR has a PIN code. If your TREZOR gets stolen, thieves cannot misuse it to steal your money. Due to TREZOR’s clever design, even if the computer with which you use your TREZOR is hacked, the hackers will never know your PIN.

In contrast to the various pieces of software and web services that allow you to store your Bitcoins TREZOR is secure. Software and web-based solutions keep your Bitcoin signing keys either on your computer or worse, on the Internet! When you use such a service, hackers can easily steal your Bitcoins by hacking your computers or hacking the servers of the services that you use.

Who Created Bitcoin?

The domain name "bitcoin.org" was registered on 18 August 2008 with a link to a paper authored by Satoshi Nakamoto titled Bitcoin: A Peer-to-Peer Electronic Cash System

Nakamoto implemented the bitcoin software as open-source code and released it in January 2009.His identity remains unknown.

In January 2009, the bitcoin network was created when Nakamoto mined the first block of the chain, known as the genesis block.

Trezor actual size

The receiver of the first bitcoin transaction was cypherpunk Hal Finney, who created the first reusable proof-of-work system (RPOW) in 2004.

Finney downloaded the bitcoin software on its release date, and on 12 January 2009 received ten bitcoins from Nakamoto.

Other early cypherpunk supporters were creators of bitcoin predecessors: Wei Dai, creator of b-money, and Nick Szabo, creator of bit gold.[24] In 2010, the first known commercial transaction using bitcoin occurred when programmer Laszlo Hanyecz bought two Papa John's pizzas for 10,000 bitcoin.

Nakamoto is estimated to have mined one million bitcoins before disappearing in 2010, when he handed the network alert key and control of the code repository over to Gavin Andresen. Andresen later became lead developer at the Bitcoin Foundation. [Source]
