Hardware wallets Trezor were updated, support for new coins added

On November 7, SatoshiLabs, creators of the hardware wallet TREZOR, announced that Trezor Model T was updated to firmware version 2.0.9, and Trezor One got an update to firmware 1.7.1.

According to the announcement, Trezor Model T now supports an array of new coins.

Trezor One now supports a new communication protocol — WebUSB. Its coin support has expanded as well.

“With Trezor Model T, we have decided to redesign a lot of stuff completely from scratch. One of these changes was to have business logic code written in Python, language most developers are familiar with, instead of embedded C used for the original Trezor model”, – writes Stick, SatoshiLabs CTO. – “There is no better proof that this was a great decision than looking at the massive community contributions that have landed into the latest Trezor Model T firmware”.

Support for Monero, Cardano, Stellar, Ripple, Tezos, Decred, Groestlcoin, Lisk, Zencash, and Zcash Sapling hardfork was added to Trezor Model T.

The new firmware version 1.7.1 of Trezor One adds the support of WebUSB for both Trezor Wallet and Trezor Password Manager (TPM).

These changes allow users of Google Chrome to connect to Trezor Wallet and TPM directly, without the use of Trezor Bridge. With the right cable, users can even use Trezor One with their Android mobile device or Chromebook.

Trezor One now supports Lisk and Stellar. Just like Trezor Model T, it supports Zcash sapling hardfork.

On October 22, SatoshiLabs announced the release of Exchanges to the Trezor Wallet. Users can now seamlessly exchange between different cryptocurrencies without ever needing to leave the Wallet site. The entire exchange process can be initiated and observed directly in the Wallet interface.
