I don’t like banks. They can be real assholes, like the time they charged me a $50 late fee. Not to mention, they’re middle men that claim to “store” my funds but actually lend my money out. Can’t trust ’em, won’t trust ’em.
Fortunately, I can use bitcoin and be my own bank (kind of).
I’ve tried out a few different hardware wallets and Trezor is by far my favorite. The user experience is smooth and I don’t have to worry about annoying plugins. And they support more than 500 coins.
I’ve got like 4 of these bad boys now.
“The root problem with conventional currency is all the trust that’s required to make it work. The central bank must be trusted not to debase the currency, but the history of fiat currencies is full of breaches of that trust. Banks must be trusted to hold our money and transfer it electronically, but they lend it out in waves of credit bubbles with barely a fraction in reserve. We have to trust them with our privacy, trust them not to let identity thieves drain our accounts.” –Satoshi Nakamoto, Founder of Bitcoin
