SatoshiLabs, the creator of Trezor, the world-famous and first hardware wallet, announced today a new collaboration with Dutch crypto broker BTC Direct.
This partnership allows European users of Trezor hardware wallets to purchase cryptocurrency from BTC Direct directly from their Trezor Wallet.
“BTC Direct is the only large European broker Trezor works with. We believe that finding partners like BTC Direct is the step in the right direction. Thanks to BTC Direct, we are able to bring even lower fees to the native Trezor Wallet, and benefit our users while providing the safest environment for their transactions.”Marek (Slush) Palatinus, CEO of SatoshiLabs
Because Trezor devices automatically enter users' recipient addresses, it's no longer necessary to manually enter addresses, making it safer than ever to buy bitcoins.
The integration of BTC Direct into the Trezor wallets means that Bitcoin and a selection of altcoins can be purchased using local payment methods. Throughout Europe, payments can be made by SEPA bank transfer and by credit card. In some countries, local payment methods such as SOFORT, iDeal, EPS, and Bancontact are also available. This greatly increases accessibility for purchasing cryptocurrency. Thanks to BTC Direct's excellent banking relationships, the Credit Card fees are the most competitive on the European market.
“Users only need to link their Trezor to BTC Direct once. The next step is similar to a plug and play experience in order to keep bitcoins safe in your Trezor.”Davy Stevens, CEO of BTC Direct
BTC Direct from the Netherlands is one of the oldest and largest crypto-brokers in Europe. More than 500,000 Europeans buy and sell cryptocurrency with BTC Direct. The company employs over thirty professionals who are all bitcoin minded. BTC Direct is also the first company in the world where every employee receives his or her wage in bitcoin.
