So you are a novice to Bitcoin or just received your new TREZOR wallet? Play safe and try myTREZOR Playground first.
It allows you to do basic operations without having to use the real bitcoins. You can gain ground with your new TREZOR device and Bitcoin transactions at no risk. Our Playground uses TESTcoins that can be easily distinguished by their address starting with “m” or “n” compared to Bitcoin addresses that are typically starting with a “1”.
Set the Device Label, your PIN and write down your recovery seed. You’ll need it later.
1] When done with your basic setup, go to myTREZOR Playground.
2] Select Account #1 and then the Receive tab. Copy the receiving address into your clipboard.
3] Send your Receive address to [email protected] (write “TESTCOINS” in the Subject so we can attend you fast)
While you are waiting for your TESTcoins to arrive please read our User Manual.
4] After your TESTcoins arrived, click + Add account to create a new account.
1] Select the Send tab of your Account #1 and start typing “account”. You’ll be offered and address from your Account #2.
2] Enter the amount and click Send. No need to enter transaction fees. They will be calculated automatically for you.
3] Validate the transaction by entering your PIN. You’ll only have to do that once per session (until you reconnect TREZOR again).
4] Now check if there’s your first money transfer appears in the other Account.
To simulate that you really did, you will have to wipe your device (select Device Label and click Wipe). This will reset the device as it was when you bought it. But no worries, your coins are not lost!
You have a smart backup – your TREZOR Recovery seed. Have it ready and continue.
1] Plug your new TREZOR device while you’re still at test.mytrezor.com
2] Select the device label and click Seed Recovery.
3] Follow the instructions appearing on your device until you are done.
After finishing the recovery, you will see all of your accounts, the entire transaction history and the account balance appear. Seems like a miracle, it’s all there, in your TREZOR again.
Just go to http://mytrezor.com and get some Bitcoins into your new TREZOR account. You know how to do that by now. Enjoy!
