Trezor the bitcoin safe – the hardware bitcoin wallet – a step in the evolution of bitcoin towards a completely safe payment system. Trezor brings peace of mind. Ultimate security – no matter how unprotected your computer or internet connection might be, your coins always stay safe with Trezor as it never exposes your private keys. Trezor is an isolated environment for offline transaction signing and using a small display you can visually verify the transaction contents. That’s why all operations using Trezor are entirely safe. Easy to use – Trezor is windows, OS X and Linux friendly. All you need to do is to connect your Trezor to the computer and follow the instructions. There are only two buttons, to confirm or to deny the action, so using Trezor is as easy and as intuitive as it can be. Users can backup the whole Trezor contents on a small piece of paper and use this backup to regain access to all their coins in case of disaster, loss or theft. Modern cryptography – Trezor uses state of the art cryptographic algorithms and practices, but you don’t have to read long manuals or to be a crypto-expert in order to use them properly. Community driven open-source – Trezor code is open-source and technical decisions are discussed with the wider developer community. Everything can be audited by an independent third party. This ensures that Trezor is absolutely transparent and backdoor free.

Cryptocurrencies That Trezor Supports
Here is the list of Trezor-supported cryptocurrencies along with my insights on these coins.
1. Bitcoin (BTC)- This is a must-have coin in your portfolio. I would say you should have BTC as 40-50 % of your portfolio because being the pioneer cryptocurrency, it is the most dominant one.
2. Bitcoin Cash (BCH)- A fork of Bitcoin as you know but for a different use case. I would advise you to just HODL of it if you got BCH at the time of fork because it is certainly going to survive and will have good value in future. But don’t fall prey to its PR games where it tries to claim that BCH is the actual BTC.
3. Litecoin (LTC)- This is a must-have coin in your portfolio for 5-10 % because being a copy of Bitcoin with improved block timing, different proof of work and different supply Litecoin has always served as a testbed for Bitcoin’s future implementations. So it is also here for the long term.
4. Ethereum (ETH)- You can have Ethereum in your portfolio up to 20% because it is aspiring to be the world’s only super giant computer. But keep in mind that it has an ever-increasing inflating supply, but still a good investment right now.
5. Ethereum Classic (ETC)-This is a forked version of ETH and you can read more about it here.
6. DASH (DASH)- DASH is definitely a good investment with improved governance mechanism and better proof of work backed by a dedicated team so it should be 10-15 % of your portfolio.
7. Zcash (ZEC)-Zcash is total anonymous coin which has implemented Zerocash protocol for the first time but I would not recommend this more than 5% for your portfolio and you can read more about it here.
8. Namecoin (NMC)- Not recommended for your portfolio but you can read more about it here.
9. Dogecoin (DOGE)-Not recommended for your portfolio you can read our detailed guide on it here.
10. ERC-20 Tokens- ERC tokens are slowly gaining momentum some of the ERC tokens that are worth looking are OmiseGo, Golem, and CIVIC.
There is also work in progress for implementing NEM cryptocurrency.
But not all of the coins have a natively supported app for them. Still, they can be used with other interfaces. Here is the list of Trezor supported coins as per their interfaces.
