The Exodus Cryptocurrency Wallet Just Got a Whole Lot Better!
At BitPrime, we have been recommending the Exodus desktop wallet as one of the best solutions for storing your hard-earned Satoshis from pretty much day one. There’s even a mobile app too now! Of course, we would prefer that if you’re in this for the long haul, you grab yourself a hardware wallet for the ultimate in security.
Now, you can have the best of both worlds as Exodus is working in conjunction with the Trezor One and Trezor Model T devices!
Trezor is the original hardware wallet and has been in the game since 2014.
In this guide, we’ll walk you through setting up your existing Exodus wallet with a previously set up Trezor One device (although, the Trezor Model T is very similar so users should be able to follow through also).
Right! So what are we going to need?
You’ll need your computer, a Trezor hardware wallet, a micro-USB cable, the Exodus app set up and open (ensure you have the latest version).
This setup is unbelievably easy.
Open up Exodus. If you already use your Trezor device with another application such as MyEtherWallet or the Trezor web wallet, ensure these are closed for the new set-up to work smoothly.
This is the first screen that greets you:
From here, connect your Trezor to your computer. You’ll automatically be presented with the following screen:
Enter your Trezor PIN code on your desktop – remember to follow the number sequence on the Trezor device which should look like this:
That is pretty much it. As you can see from the following, both your Exodus balances and your Trezor balances are showing in separate tabs across the top of the screen. You can see Exodus in the lefthand tab and Trezor in the righthand tab (My Trezor is named KAYJAY01).
From here you can click on Settings (bottom left). Across the top, you’ll now see a new Hardware Wallets tab.
You can choose whether to automatically detect your Trezor upon connecting and even change your Trezor PIN directly within the app.
One thing to note is that not all currencies currently supported by Exodus are supported by Trezor and vice versa.
These are links to the official Trezor retail store, which is the safest way to purchase your new hardware wallet. Please don’t buy a discounted or second-hand device from Trade Me, eBay, Amazon etc. unless you are 100% sure the reseller is legitimate. Safer still, don’t purchase a second-hand device full stop.
