YOU DON’T OWN A TREZOR MODEL T YET? THIS MEANS YOUR CRYPTOCURRENCY IS NOT SECURE

 

 

Step 1 – Cryptosteel explained

Cryptosteel

The Cryptosteel is a device made entirely from German stainless steel, specifically designed to store seed keys of any deterministic crypto hardware wallet (such as Trezor, Ledger, etc.) in an indestructible and fire & waterproof manner. Thanks to the Cryptosteel you have the complete assurance that your seed key will never get destroyed.

The device has two separate sides, each capable of holding 12 words of maximum 4 letters each (see Step 6 below), which is enough to store the entire seed key of any deterministic crypto hardware wallet (such as, the Trezor hardware wallets and the Ledger hardware wallets).

Start out by using the steel letter tiles, which are included in the box, to assemble your seed key. Then you can start inserting the steel letter tiles, in the correct order, into the Cryptosteel device. Make sure to follow the below step-by-step instructions.

 

Step 2 – Separate the 2 sides of the Cryptosteel

Cryptosteel

Separate the 2 sides of the Cryptosteel by opening the device in a butterfly motion.

 

Step 3 – Unlock both sides of the Cryptosteel

Cryptosteel

Unlock both sides of the Cryptosteel by unscrewing (counter clockwise) the screw situated in the right top corner of each side of the device, with a flat screw driver or small coin.

 

Step 4 – Lower the levers

Cryptosteel

Lower the levers in the bottom right corner of each side of the Cryptosteel.

 

Step 5 – Open the frame

Cryptosteel

Open the frame on each side of the device, while holding down the levers (see Step 4).

 

Step 6 – Insert the steel letter tiles in the frame

Cryptosteel

Insert the steel letter tiles (in the correct order) in the frame of the Cryptosteel, after having assembled your seed key first.

Make sure to fill each line of the device in its entirety. In case your seed key contains one or more words of 3 letters (or less), use the blank tiles (included in the set) to fill in the empty spaces.

WARNING:

Each side of the Cryptosteel has room for 12 words of maximum 4 letters. Use the set of stainless-steel letter tiles to assemble your seed key first and insert it subsequently in the correct order in the Cryptosteel.

Insert only the first 4 letters of each word of your seed key in the Cryptosteel.

The first 4 letters of each word are enough to store your entire seed key, even if a particular word in your seed key consists of more than 4 letters. Indeed, the seed key is composed out of BIP39 MNEMONIC type words. This particular type of words has the property that the first 4 letters are always sufficient to know the corresponding complete words.

 

Step 7 – Insert the steel letter tiles in the frame

Cryptosteel

Close the frame of the Cryptosteel on both sides. Screw (clockwise) the screw, situated in the top right corner of each side of the device, shut. Use a flat screw driver or small coin to achieve this.

Congratulations. From now on your seed key is fire & waterproof and indestructible.

Safely store your Cryptosteel in a place that only you are able to physically access. The seed key is the ultimate backup key for all your cryptocurrency and other data stored on your Trezor hardware wallet. It is therefore of the utmost importance that you keep your seed key secret and safe at all times.

We recommend waiting for multiple confirmations (at least 6 confirmations) before considering the transaction as irreversible. The time for a transaction to be confirmed (multiple times) will vary depending on the transaction fees applied and the congestion of the network.

COMMENT: An address can be used multiple times (as many times as you want).

 

Step 5 – Destination and amount

Trezor hardware wallet

Once you have confirmed the destination address on your Trezor device, you will be able to receive cryptocurrency on that address.

If a person sends cryptocurrency to said address, a transaction will first appear as ‘Unconfirmed’ under the tab ‘Transactions’ on the main navigation menu of the wallet.

Trezor hardware wallet

Once the transaction has received its first confirmation on the network, the label ‘Unconfirmed’ will be replaced by the time of confirmation. Please note that you are able to track the status of the transaction at all times in a blockchain explorer by clicking on the time of confirmation.

You are able to send the newly received cryptocurrency even before the first confirmation. We recommend you however to wait for at least a couple of confirmations (after 6 confirmations a transaction is generally considered as irreversible). The time of confirmation can vary depending on the transaction fees applied and the congestion of the network.

Click on the ‘Exchange’ tab in the main navigation menu, at the top of screen.

 

Step 5 – Type of cryptocurrency you want to buy

Trezor hardware wallet

Select (a) the type of cryptocurrency you would like to buy (i.e. litecoin in our example) and (b) the destination address for the acquired cryptocurrency (i.e. this can be either an account in your Trezor wallet or an external destination address, in which case you want to toggle the ‘Any … address’ option).

WARNING: Always make sure to verify that you have selected the right destination address before executing a transaction. You risk losing your cryptocurrency when sending a type of cryptocurrency to an address that does not correspond to the selected cryptocurrency. For example: bitcoin can only be sent to a bitcoin address, but not to a bitcoin cash address (and vice versa).

 

Step 6 – Continue to exchange

Trezor hardware wallet

Click on the green button ‘Continue to exchange’ and confirm the destination address for the cryptocurrency you want to buy, displayed on your Trezor device.

Please note that you will stay within the Trezor wallet interface when clicking on the green button ‘Continue to exchange’. You will simply be guided to the next steps in the purchase process.

 

Step 7 – Fill in the amount to sell

The Trezor hardware wallets support Ether and all ERC-20 tokens. ERC-20 tokens are tokens built and can be used on top of the Ethereum platform (such as Binance Coin, VeChain, OmiseGo, Golem, etc.).

Receiving and sending Ether or ERC-20 tokens with your Trezor device is at present only possible via third party wallets MyEtherWallet or MyCryptoWallet.

COMMENT: Please note that when using MyEtherWallet or MyCryptoWallet with your Trezor device, your private keys will be stored only on your Trezor device (and not on mentioned platforms). When using your Trezor device with these online platforms, these platforms serve only as interface for executing transactions, but do not actually hold your Ether or ERC-20 tokens. Your Ether and ERC-20 tokens benefit therefore from the same cryptographic protection as do your other cryptocurrency that you store on the Trezor device.

The below step-by-step guides outline how you can use your Trezor device to buy and sell Ether and ERC-20 tokens, together with the following platforms:

  • MyEtherWallet; and
  • MyCrypto.

In order to make use of the below step-by-step guide, your first need to have set-up your Trezor wallet, by following the Trezor One set-up guide or the Trezor Model T set-up guide.

 

Step 1 – Sign in

Open your web browser and navigate to wallet.trezor.io. Connect your Trezor device with your computer and sign in.

 

Step 2 – Select a type of cryptocurrency

Trezor hardware wallet

Select the relevant type of cryptocurrency, in the top left corner of the Trezor wallet interface. In this example, choose ‘Ethereum.’

 

Step 3 – Choose the platform

Trezor hardware wallet

Choose a platform: (a) MyEtherWallet or (b) MyCrypto, by clicking on the relevant green button.

If you choose MyEtherWallet, continue to follow the below steps.

If you choose MyCrypto, scroll further down and start from the section ‘How to use Trezor with MyCrypto’.

WARNING: When using MyEtherWallet, do not click on ‘Generate a new wallet’. Your Ether wallets are automatically created on your Trezor device when connecting your Trezor device to the MyEtherWallet platform when following the below step-by-step guide. If you were to click on ‘Generate a new wallet’, a new wallet is created online (as opposed to on the Trezor device) which is therefore not protected by your Trezor.

In case you would want to learn more about the MyEtherWallet, we recommend reading the knowledge base on their website.

When choosing MyEtherWallet, you will be redirected to the MyEtherWallet website. As a first step you will need to confirm a number of notifications.
