Security and freedom are two of the fundamental pillars that define the ever-evolving cryptocurrency ecosystem. Today THORSwap is thrilled to announce the native integration of Trezor hardware wallets (Model T and Model One). Alongside Ledger Nano X, S and S Plus, users now have access to an expanded choice of hardware wallet solutions. Experience seamless and efficient cross-chain swaps via THORSwap, and manage your funds in a secure self-custodial manner.

Elevating Security Standards

Trezor, a leading manufacturer of hardware wallets, has gained wide recognition for offering one of the most secure ways to manage and store cryptocurrencies. A hardware wallet like Trezor operates by keeping the user’s private keys in a secure hardware device. THORSwap’s integration enables users to sign transactions using their Trezor wallet, without exposing their private keys, drastically reducing the risk of hacks, unauthorized access, and theft.

Trezor and Ledger are two of the most reputable names in the realm of hardware wallets, each boasting distinct features across a number of models. They are also distinguished primarily by their security strategies. Trezor adopts an open-source approach, allowing public scrutiny of its code which can facilitate quick vulnerability fixes through community input. Meanwhile, Ledger combines open-source apps with closed-source firmware, adding a secure element chip for heightened security.

By adding support for Trezor hardware wallets, THORSwap is amplifying our commitment to user security and informed choices.
