Bitstamp announces partnership with offline bitcoin wallet Trezor

Announcements | October 25, 2016 By:

Bitstamp announced it has partnered with Trezor, an offline bitcoin wallet, for improved bitcoin security and user experience.

With the integration of the hardware bitcoin wallet, Bitstamp makes its marketplace more accessible to customers’ demands and expands options for customers’ security without compromising user experience.

The partnership will also allow users to deposit bitcoin from their Trezor to Bitstamp account without having to switch to or any other wallet, or having to copy-paste bitcoin addresses. With the help of standard Trezor security, users can enter the PIN using shuffled PIN matrix and confirm the deposit with their Trezor.

To attract new users, the companies organise a weekly lottery. According to the press-release, every Wednesday Bitstamp will pick one of its users at random and grant them a free Trezor hardware wallet.

Bitstamp is a European Union-based bitcoin marketplace.
