Initiative brings together company’s education programme, the launch of Bitcoineta and sponsorship Africa Bitcoin Conference 

Trezor, the original bitcoin hardware wallet company, today announces the launch of its education programme, Trezor Academy, that will be rolled out in Africa. As part of the initiative Trezor is also funding Bitcoineta, a branded Land Rover that in conjunction with Bitcoin Cowries, will tour the Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS) taking the Bitcoin message to rural communities and schools acrosst the region.

The Bitcoineta vehicle is the fifth of its kind with other educational road-trips currently active in Central America, South America, Europe and South Africa. South America and Europe.    

The launch of Trezor Academy follows a successful pilot programme that took place throughout 2023 and saw the company and local influencers host events in Ghana, Nigeria, Cameroon, Uganda, Kenya and Burundi, helping to introduce attendees to the benefits of Bitcoin and the importance of self-custody via a series of meetups, presentations and Q&A sessions.

Trezor Academy has been made possible by the support of the bitcoin community.  21 Euro from each sale of Trezor’s limited edition, bitcoin-only version of its recently launched Trezor Safe 3 hardware wallet (which sold out in one day) has been pledged to fund this ongoing education work. Throughout 2024 the company plans to set up academies in more than 10 new African countries to engage with and educate hundreds more local educators, spreading the bitcoin message far and wide. 

The Bitcoineta road trip started on 1st December at Africa Bitcoin Conference, the largest Bitcoin conference held to date on the African continent, and for which Trezor is also a sponsor. Attendees at the conference were able to get information on the project’s future activities.  The vehicle's progress will be shared via the official Bitcoineta X account as well as documented through video blogs and traditional media.  

Matěj Žák, CEO of Trezor commented: “Bitcoin adoption is perhaps more relevant in Africa than on any other continent. Its properties provide a host of benefits that can work in concert with other local initiatives like payment schemes, microfinancing and savings.  As a company we are committed to helping spread this message via sponsoring events like Africa Bitcoin Conference, the Trezor Academy and awesome tie-ups like Bitcoineta. Going forward we believe that Bitcoin will have a significant economic and social impact on the African continent.”

Trezor launches new hardware wallets and its own metal recovery seed backup

New Trezor products arrive to guide crypto newcomers and novices on their journey to self-custody 

Trezor, the original hardware wallet company, today launches three stylish, intuitive and affordable tools aimed at helping crypto newcomers and novices on their journey to self-custody. The line-up of products consists of the Trezor Safe 3, an easy-to-use, secure hardware wallet available in four striking colours; the Trezor Keep Metal, the mistake-proof, convenient backup solution for your recovery seed, available in three variants; and, in celebration of Trezor’s 10-year anniversary, the limited edition Trezor Safe 3 Bitcoin only, which as the name suggests keeps custody solely of the original cryptocurrency. 

“Bitcoin, and the wider cryptocurrency sector, has been with us now for 14 years. It is no longer a niche interest. There are 420 million crypto owners worldwide and, according to predictions, this number will more than double by 2027 to almost a billion — one in eight of the global population. Events over the last year or so have demonstrated the risks people are taking when they entrust the custody of their cryptocurrencies to centralised exchanges. Time and again, we’ve seen the reality of ‘not your keys, not your coins’ play out. As we approach the next wave of Bitcoin adoption, we’ve introduced some compelling new devices that enable crypto novices and newcomers to enjoy the security and peace of mind that comes with owning and safeguarding their own crypto,” Matěj Žák, CEO of Trezor, commented.

Trezor Safe 3 hardware wallet 

Designed to meet the needs of the diverse crowds entering the crypto space, The Trezor Safe 3 hardware wallet is fantastic looking, easy to use and affordable. The device adds another layer of security with the introduction of a secure element, a tamper-resistant hardware component providing extra protection against physical attacks if users lose their device. Combined with a strong passphrase, which is never stored in the device, it delivers ultimate security for users’ crypto.

The Trezor Safe 3 embodies the company's commitment to open source development and the belief that the strongest, most robust security stems from full transparency about code, technology and components. Trezor has chosen a third-party secure element vendor* that allows it to publish any potential vulnerabilities it discovers and the Trezor Safe 3 still applies open source principles in using the security component. 

The device integrates with the Trezor Suite desktop application which has everything crypto novices need for managing their digital assets — whether buying, selling, exchanging, or saving crypto through dollar cost averaging — all in a single safe environment. Trezor Safe 3 supports bitcoin, ethereum and over 7,000 other coins. The Trezor Safe 3 retails for €79 / $79 and is available in four premium colours — Solar Gold, Stellar Silver, Galactic Rose and Cosmic black.

Trezor Keep Metal 

Trezor Keep Metal safeguards one of the most precious items in a crypto inventory: the recovery seed. If a Trezor hardware wallet is ever lost, damaged or stolen, users can use the recovery seed —  a unique string of words generated when first registering a Trezor device — to restore access to their entire wallet. 

Trezor Keep Metal ensures the safety of the recovery seed under any conditions, and eliminates mistakes when recording the words. Made from aerospace-grade stainless steel, resistant to corrosion, and with a watertight seal, Trezor Keep Metal protects the recovery seed backup against fire, water, acids and impacts.

Trezor Keep Metal can be used for both 12-word and 24-word standard backups — options which are available for €99 / $99. It is also suitable for Shamir backup, making it an ideal security solution for the Shamir-compatible Trezor Safe 3. The Trezor Keep Metal catering for 3 x 20-word Shamir backup sells for €249 / $249.

Trezor Safe 3 Bitcoin only 

To celebrate the 10-year anniversary since Trezor introduced the world’s first bitcoin hardware wallet, Trezor is also releasing a limited-edition run of a Bitcoin-only Trezor Safe 3 as part of the range. It solely runs Bitcoin-only firmware  and is available in the only fitting colour: bitcoin orange. In a nod to Trezor’s breakthrough year, only 2,013 of the devices will be available at a retail price of €79 /  $79. And in recognition of Bitcoin’s ability to empower individuals in under-privileged and marginalised communities, Trezor will donate €21 from each sale to support the Trezor Academy, a Bitcoin education initiative.

“We understand that self-custody can be intimidating, especially for newcomers. That’s why we have designed the new wallets and the backup solution with beginners in mind. They’re packed with security features to keep digital assets safe. Managing your crypto is now easier than ever with a Trezor Safe hardware wallet and the new Trezor Suite desktop and mobile apps,” Matěj Žák continued.

Pre-order the products

The Trezor Safe 3, the Trezor Keep Metal and the Trezor Safe 3 Bitcoin-only are available for pre-order now on trezor.io and will be shipped in mid-November.

Invity Launches Mobile App

Invity

A smooth entry into the world of cryptocurrencies for everyone!

Invity, a self-funded startup founded in 2019 under the SatoshiLabs Group, is launching a new app for its users. Having already facilitated over $100 million in cryptocurrency transactions during 2021, with expectations to surpass $1 billion this August, the company reaches yet another milestone.

Known as a cryptocurrency exchange aggregator, Invity offers a complete ecosystem for buying, selling, exchanging, and spending cryptocurrencies, including dollar-ost averaging (DCA).Their latest addition is a mobile app that simplifies Bitcoin purchases. Additionally, the app provides access to a planned educational academy.

"The mobile app will enable us to introduce Invity to a broader audience of newcomers. To maximize our reach, we are focusing on creating a user-friendly experience and providing educational resources within the app. Security is also a top priority. Our efforts are directed at ensuring users can securely store their cryptocurrencies in their own wallets, eliminating the need to depend on us or any other third party."
comments Stepan Uherik, CEO of Invity and CFO of SatoshiLabs.

Academy as a gateway to hardware wallets

As part of the app, Invity intends to offer users an educational academy. The aim is to effectively assist newcomers in navigating the field, gradually guiding them toward more advanced features and enabling them to manage cryptocurrencies knowledgeably and independently. Additionally, the importance of storing cryptocurrencies in a personal crypto hardware wallet is highlighted.

In fact, Invity's services are directly integrated into the desktop and browser app of the Trezor hardware wallet within the Trezor Suite. This offers Trezor users a seamless, secure, and comfortable experience when trading and managing their cryptocurrencies. The emphasis on security is further reinforced by the inclusion of only non-custodial exchanges. This ensures that any purchases made do not remain on the exchange but must be immediately transferred to a user’s Trezor. 

"As a result, users maintain complete control over the cryptocurrencies they possess. Given the frequent occurrence of exchange crashes and an unpredictable regulatory environment, it is crucial to advise new crypto investors against entrusting their digital assets to third parties for extended periods, let alone when dealing with substantial amounts,”
Uherik adds.

Vexl Foundation Launched by SatoshiLabs

SatoshiLabs

2 min read

SatoshiLabs, the pioneering innovator behind the world’s first hardware wallet, Trezor, today introduced the Vexl Foundation at the BTC Prague conference. Backed by SatoshiLabs’ co-founders, Marek Palatinus and Pavol Rusnák, and with Lea Petrášová, CEO of Vexl.it, appointed as president. The foundation champions personal and financial freedoms, asserting that without the freedom to transact, all other rights lose their meaning, reflecting bitcoin’s original purpose as a decentralized peer-to-peer currency.

The Vexl Foundation is committed to restoring financial power to the people, breaking free from institutional constraints and excessive regulations. It firmly believes that technology should serve as a tool for empowerment, not control, with everyone having the right to free choice, self-determination, and privacy. This stance is a critical response to KYC (Know Your Customer) practices that have introduced unwanted complexity and risk for users, occasionally leading to security breaches and unwanted exposure of precious private data.

Alongside its launch, the Vexl Foundation has released the Financial Tyranny Index (FTI). The FTI is a comprehensive tool that measures the extent of statist interventions in the financial space. These include parameters such as the growth of the money supply, the imposition of cash limits, the advent of Central Bank Digital Currencies (CBDCs), and the overall tax burden. Interestingly, the initial findings of the FTI reveal that many of the world’s Western democracies, including France, Belgium, Canada, and the Netherlands, are among the top 20 countries with the highest levels of financial state control. This innovative index is designed to challenge and highlight these escalating impositions on our financial freedom.

At the core of the Vexl Foundation’s mission is Vexl, their mobile app. Vexl provides a simple, private, and secure platform for peer-to-peer Bitcoin transactions, operating without KYC or institutional interference.

“Vexl isn’t just an application, it’s the embodiment of our vision for financial autonomy. We’re dedicated to a future where technology empowers, and financial freedom equates to choice, privacy, and control,”

states Lea Petrášová.

The board of the Vexl Foundation includes Lea Petrášová, Marek Palatinus, Pavol Rusnák, Josef Tětek, and Grafton Clark. This team brings together a diverse range of experiences and perspectives, underpinning the foundation’s mission and vision.

“As we journey further through the digital age, we’re witnessing a concerning centralization of control,”

Marek Slush Palatinus acknowledges.

“We need to revisit the principles bitcoin was founded upon to direct power back to individuals. The Vexl Foundation is our step towards that change.”

Open to collaboration with other organizations and individuals who share the vision of a free and open financial world, the Vexl Foundation launches today. Backed by donations and guided by the strategic wisdom of the SatoshiLabs team, the foundation is poised to inspire a significant shift in our perception and interaction with digital finance, inviting everyone to step into the realm of financial autonomy.

“Join us on this journey towards a more open financial world,”

Rusnák invites.
