Trezor Wallet adds native support for Ethereum (ETH), Ethereum Classic (ETC) and ERC20 tokens

On December 4, SatoshiLabs, the company behind a hardware wallet Trezor, announced they now offer a native interface for Ethereum, Ethereum Classic, and ERC20 tokens in the beta version of Trezor Wallet.

Although these cryptocurrencies have been supported by Trezor for a long time, they were available only via third-party integrations, such as MyEtherWallet, MyCrypto and MetaMask. The integrations still work and the company has no plans to change that.

To get access to the new functionality, select Ethereum or Ethereum Classic in the currency selector, located in the top-left corner, and proceed by clicking on “Go to Trezor Ethereum Wallet.” Then, you can start using the new interface.

In this tab, users can see the total balance and the current exchange rate in a fiat currency of thier choice. Users can also use this tab to add a token of their choice to their wallets, and keep track of the balances for the selected tokens.

Receive and Send sections function very similarly to what users are used to. The user should use the Receive tab to display his/her receiving address either in the text form or in the form of a QR code.

The Send tab allows users to set outgoing transactions and transaction fees. In the advanced settings, a user can set the Gas limit, Gas price and add additional data to the transaction.

Additionally, the SatoshiLabs team wrote in the announcement that they added Coinswitch as a new partner into their Exchanges.

Earlier today Coinstelegram reported that ETCDev, the leading development firm behind Ethereum Classic (ETC), was shut down on Monday. A shortage of ready cash and a drop in the value of the company’s crypto assets meant ETCDev was no longer financially secure.
