TREZOR hardware bitcoin wallets should have been delivered to customers by now, but some technical issues have caused a delay.
When we caught up with the company in early February, they told us there were some complications on the production line. Specifically, the company’s hardware producer made an error with the cases, requiring the whole batch to be redone.
On Thursday, the company provided customers with an update via their Facebook page.
TREZOR says they’re working on polishing the code and finalizing screens. They’re also tuning up the browser plugin for Mac, Windows, and Linux. Server-side, the myTREZOR.com web wallet should be operational some time this weekend.
The company is testing their software extensively, and is even having it audited by security firm Nethemba, who will make the results of the security audit public.
TREZOR says they’re still having issues with the cases that caused the delay we reported on previously. They will be finding out more about the issue Friday, they say, noting they “are negotiating alternative production” if the issues aren’t resolved.
“Metallics are here looking good and we’re sending the first ones to bitcoin developers to do early testing just in order to have a fast check by multiple experts,” they wrote.
Moral-wise, the team is apparently “nervous, madly working, not sleeping, eating badly, [and] drinking energy drinks”, but they’re getting excited to ship the first units to customers.
No specific delivery dates have been provided yet, but we’ll keep you updated.
