If you want to make sure that you’re cryptocurrency holdings are secure enough while being able to use them, getting a reputable hardware wallet like the Trezor One/Model T is easily the answer. But, where do you buy one in The United Arab Emirates?
Buying from local stores
Since Trezor hardware wallets are pretty famous worldwide, it might be a bit uncommon to find some for sale in physical stores in your city, especially when you’re in those more bigger and well-known Arab cities like Dubai, Abu Dhabi, Sharjah, etc. 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.
Buying from Souq, Ounass, and other websites
While there are definitely reputable Souq sellers, Amazon sellers, Ounass sellers, and other online sellers that are selling Trezor One’s and Trezor Model T’s, we still suggest against buying from these sites.
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 untampered 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. That way, you’re severely decreasing the risks of your device being fake, used, or tampered with.
While buying from the official Trezor website might be a bit more costly due to the shipping fees, save yourself the future headaches of you wondering if you purchased a nice and legitimate Trezor hardware wallet if you bought one somewhere else.
