Trezor forms unique partnership with European crypto broker BTC Direct
SatoshiLabs, the creator of Trezor, the world-famous and first hardware wallet, announced today a new collaboration with European crypto broker BTC Direct. This partnership allows European users of Trezor hardware wallets to purchase cryptocurrency from BTC Direct directly from their Trezor Wallet.
BTC Direct is the only large European broker Trezor works with. ‘We believe that finding partners like BTC Direct is the step in the right direction. Thanks to BTC Direct, we are able to bring even lower fees to the native Trezor Wallet, and benefit our users while providing the safest environment for their transactions,’ says Marek (Slush) Palatinus, CEO of SatoshiLabs.
Because Trezor devices automatically enter users’ recipient addresses, it’s no longer necessary to manually enter addresses, making it safer than ever to buy bitcoins.
The integration of BTC Direct into the Trezor wallets means that Bitcoin and a selection of altcoins can be purchased using local payment methods. Throughout Europe, payments can be made by SEPA bank transfer and by credit card. In some countries, local payment methods such as SOFORT, iDeal, EPS, and Bancontact are also available. This greatly increases accessibility for purchasing cryptocurrency. Thanks to BTC Direct’s excellent banking relationships, the Credit Card fees are the most competitive on the European market.
Davy Stevens, CEO of BTC Direct: ‘Users only need to link their Trezor to BTC Direct once. The next step is similar to a plug and play experience in order to keep bitcoins safe in your Trezor’.
SatoshiLabs is a privately held company founded in 2013 and based in the Czech Republic. The company’s first product was the world’s first cryptocurrency hardware wallet Trezor. Its popular flagship product, the Trezor Model T, introduced new measures of security such as its full-color touchscreen. SatoshiLabs is also the creator of more than 22 innovative security standards like Recovery seed, Passphrase, or Shamir Backup, which are significantly improving the whole industry of online security. Present in over 220 countries worldwide, SatoshiLabs remains open-source, making the best security solutions accessible to anyone, anywhere.
