Trezor set to launch new desktop app for managing hardware wallet crypto funds
Satoshi Labs, the creators of bitcoin and crypto hardware wallet brand Trezor, is set to release its new interface application next week, on Wednesday, July 14th. While the Trezor Suite for the web is still available, the new Trezor Suite is built from the group up as a totally unique desktop app for Windows.
Features of Trezor Suite
Firstly, Trezor Suite will integrate Invity (a Satoshi Labs tool). Invity enables users to buy bitcoin and dozens of other coins straight to their hardware wallet in a decentralized manner. With the integration of Invity, hardware wallet users are free from trusting exchanges with their keys.
From the Trezor Suite dashboard, users will get a full view of all their crypto assets and a graph of their deposits and withdrawals. Trezor Suite is designed to be easy to navigate to a particular asset to start transacting. It is now more efficient to switch to the Trade tab to select an offer for a bitcoin purchase.
The new Suite app also now provides an all-in-one onboarding interface guide to get users’ wallets properly set up. The onboarding tool highlights basic security steps user’s should take and how to improve privacy without the need for extra applications or complex networking knowledge.
With the new Trezor Suite, it is now quicker to generate a new transaction plus set a custom fee. Importantly, security checks by Trezor make sure the fee is not abnormally high, and pre-calculated fees are recommended based on current network capacity. Further, RBF (replace by fee) and Broadcast are enabled by default to provide a more fluid transaction experience.
Efficient Token Management
ERC-20 tokens can now be easily added to a user’s wallet with the contract address. Further, a crypto token supported by Trezor Suite can now be enabled/disabled from view via a simplified Coin Settings menu. Note, disabling a token just removes it from view on the app, the keys remain safe on Trezor.
Lastly, different layers of privacy are available depending on a user’s needs. This feature can already be experienced through a Tor switch and discreet mode.
Launch July 14th
“Next week, Trezor Suite will officially launch. This is a significant milestone in its development, and Trezor Suite will become the main interface for managing your funds. But for Suite, it is still just the beginning. Each month will see exciting new features and expanded functionality brought to the new platform, so you can continue to do more with your crypto holdings.”
