If you want to make sure that you’re cryptocurrency holdings are secure enough while at the same time being able to use them easily, getting a reputable hardware wallet such as the cheaper Trezor One or the better Trezor Model T is easily the answer. But, where do you buy one in Canada?
Buying from local stores
Since Trezor hardware wallets are getting pretty well-known worldwide as time goes, finding some in computer hardware stores might be pretty common especially when you’re in those bigger and well-known Canadian cities like Toronto, Montreal, or Vancouver. But, should you actually buy from them?
The answer: No. While it can definitely be quite difficult to fake a Trezor wallet or to physically alter one for malicious purposes, it’s still technically possible. Canadians are surely known for being really friendly, but every country has its own bad apples.
Buying from Amazon.ca, eBay.ca, and other websites
While there are definitely reputable Amazon.ca sellers, eBay.ca sellers, and other online sellers that are selling Trezor devices, we still suggest against buying from these reseller platforms.
Why? While the chances might be a bit low, there are still chances of certain sellers’ Trezor wallet inventory being mixed up with other sellers’ inventory, causing you to possibly be sent a used or tampered-with Trezor device.
Where should I purchase them instead?
If you want to be 100% secure that you actually bought a brand new, legitimate, unopened, and untampered Trezor One or Trezor Model T, the best place to buy your hardware wallet is still on the official Trezor website.
While buying from the official Trezor website might be a bit more costly due to the shipping fees, it’s worth paying a few extra dollars just to make sure that you’re going to receive a legitimate and untampered hardware device.
