Usability, convenience, safety – these have been our priorities ever since we released the first Trezor and continued to be our goals with the Model T. Of course, we do not just stop short there. This ethos is applied across the services we provide, including the web-interface for the Trezors, the popular Trezor Wallet.
Therefore, it is with excitement that we announce the release of Exchanges to the Trezor Wallet today, making the Wallet more versatile and useful than ever before. Starting today, you can 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.
What does this mean? In addition to the current features like multiple accounts, multi-currency, complete transaction history, sending, and receiving, you can also conveniently exchange coins and tokens directly in your Wallet.
The exchange feature is provided by various third parties; SatoshiLabs bears no responsibility for the process, exchange rates, fees, or functionality. In this initial release, we have decided to cooperate with ShapeShift and Changelly. Trezor Wallet will always operate without KYC, as the Wallet or your Trezor device are not custodial.
If the exchange providers decide to enact KYC, registration and verification will be done by them. Your personal information will not be processed by Trezor Wallet / SatoshiLabs, nor will it ever be requested by the company. Customer support for exchanges will be serviced by the partners.
