If you pre-ordered a TREZOR hardware wallet, listen up.
Satoshi Labs, the company behind the ultra-secure physical way to store your bitcoins, has taken to their official blog to announce that all pre-ordered devices have officially been shipped to customers around the world.
“If you haven’t received yours already, your TREZOR is flying to you right now!” the company exclaimed.
Customers awaiting their TREZOR have been patient for quite the while. Seeing as how this is the first generation of the device, Satoshi Labs has had some issues with manufacturing.
Specifically, the company previously noted that they had issues with the outer design of the device. A hired manufacturer had produced the cases incorrectly, leading the company to find another manufacturer.
[blockquote style=”2″]We would like to give a big THANK YOU to all of you who supported us on our efforts so far by pre-ordering TREZOR! It can’t be stressed enough, that TREZOR is a significant achievement of the whole community. Even when things seemed to get stuck, many of you have sent us good vibes and words of appreciation. Many of you have helped with brainstorming, advise coding and testing. No million-dollar investments, no corporations or angel investor groups were needed to fulfill the security needs of Bitcoin users.[/blockquote]
In Prague, the company is celebrating the shipment with a launch party, open to the public.
And if you’re one of the people who didn’t squeeze in a pre-order, the company says they’ll soon be accepting orders directly from their e-store.
A TREZOR unit is headed to NEWSBTC HQ for review. Once received, I’ll publish a review and then top it off by giving away the device.
