SatoshiLabs is the company that created the very first ‘cold storage’ device - the Trezor Wallet.
SatoshiLabs: About the Platform
The hero product of SatoshiLabs is the Trezor Wallet - currently the second most liked personal cryptocurrency storage solution after the Ledger Wallet.
Personal cryptocurrency storage devices are often called ‘cold storage’ but both Trezor and Ledger have had security vulnerabilities discovered in them.
We are sticking to labeling them as ‘warm wallets’ because of their security vs usability tradeoff: they work as a black box, the user is not in control of their inner mechanisms or possible security vulnerabilities coming from the hardware.
Trezor’s codebase is open-source. KeepKey, another crypto wallet solution, made their initial product largely from Trezor’s codebase.
