SatoshiLabs, the Czech company, produces wallets.
Description and work principles
In fact, the work is carried out using a small display and two buttons. To keep the wallet running, you need to connect it to a personal computer in order to carry out transactions. Trezor is managed via a dedicated application of the same name for Google Chrome. There are also mobile versions and support for Linux. The wallet works on the myTREZOR plugin, which can be downloaded for free on the manufacturer's website.
