Let's Buy Some Tron in less than 10 minutes
Computers and phones get hacked. Websites run illicit code to steal passwords. Phishers trick people into clicking links that steal information from their computers.
A line of defence to keep our coins from being siphoned out of our crypto wallets is essential.
And that's a hardware wallet.
Hardware wallets plug into your computer like a USB stick, and they have one job- to be a firewall between your TRON and the outside world.
To do this, they encrypt the private keys to your cryptocurrency wallets so that no-one- not even you- can know them.
That way only someone with physical access to your hardware wallet- and who also knows its password- has a chance to access and move your coins.
Which hardware wallets support TRON?
Hardware wallets made by Ledger and Trezor support the storage and sending of TRON.
Where do I get a hardware wallet?
Our recommendation is to either get a Ledger Nano S from their official website or Amazon, or a Trezor from their official site or Amazon.
The Nano S makes it easy to manage your coins- it's compact and discreet, and wallet management is achieved through a small LCD screen and two buttons.
The Trezor is just as easy to use, small and also featuring two buttons, with a lot of information packed into its small LCD screen.
Here's the Ledger setup guide, and the Trezor user manual.
