What is the Corazon?
The Corazon comes in a luxurious matte black box with white printed graphics, there are 2 security seals on the top and bottom opening of the box with the Trezor and GRAY® logo on it. If you find that the seals have been removed or tampered with, do reach out either to Trezor or GRAY® immediately.
As you open up the exterior paper box, it will reveal the main box within. On this box the words ‘CORAZON’ are printed on the front.
Lifting the box up, it reveals the device. From first glance, the Corazon looks like a telecommunication device right from the future. Cutting ridges break the profile of the Corazon, creating an angular design inspired by the aerodynamic shape of hypersonic planes and spaceships. The mechanically textured surface, also creates a tactile sensation that elevates the Corazon into another dimension. This stunning texture according to GRAY® is the result of specially engineered cutting tools and a unique CNC machine tool path made by their most trusted artisans, impossible to be replicated by hand and serves as an anti-cloning mechanical fingerprint that GRAY® can identify, adding an additional layer of security to the device.
On the back of the Corazon you should see a sticker with the CE and FCC logo which can be removed.
Pull the fabric tab on the top to reveal the second layer below which contains a sleeve that has all the paper documents neatly placed.
In the sleeve you will find:
- Recovery Seed
- Stickers of the GRAY® logo
- Stickers of the Trezor Logo
- GRAY® metal card
- Trezor metal card
- FCC Statement
A Smooth User Experience Just Like The Trezor Model T
Just like with Trezor Model T, the guide in the package tells you how to get the Corazon initialised. The process is pretty straightforward and the interface guides you through the whole process. The most important point is to write down your recovery seed and to store it in a safe place. The recovery seed helps you to recover your funds in a different Corazon or Trezor in case you lose or damage yours. However, it is also the key to your funds in case somebody steals it from you. It is recommended to store it on a piece of paper or a more durable material and keep it in a locked drawer that only you have access to. You should also enable PIN protection right from the beginning.
Corazon also uses the standard and battle-tested Trezor Wallet, the web interface, which is easy to use even for someone new to crypto. Select the desired cryptocurrency in the left-hand menu, and you are ready to go. The user experience is very smooth and secure. It requires the user to confirm each outgoing transaction or address generation directly on the device. This means that you do not have to trust the computer you are connected to.
As mentioned above, the touchscreen is a nice improvement to the user experience. It allows you to enter your PIN directly on the device, which is not only extremely practical but also protecting you from key-logging attacks on your computer. It also allows users to enter the passphrase using only the touchscreen.
Enhanced Durability and Security
The Corazon based off the software of the Trezor Model T offers the trademark security of all Trezor devices with its firmware open-sourced and public on GitHub. The community and security experts were, therefore, able to audit the device and anyone can test it for themselves. Unlike some of the competing products, there is no secret black box.
GRAY® has also included some additional security measures of their own. Firstly, the Corazon has a mechanical texture that serves as anti-cloning mechanical fingerprint that GRAY® can identify, adding an additional layer of security to the device. Secondly, the Corazon has a special tamper-proof design incorporating the use of hooks and latches, the titanium case encloses the electronics and are snap fitted together making it unremovable without someone damaging the outer case.
The Corazon is delivered empty with no pre-installed firmware – this is done during the set-up process. It is PIN-protected and allows you to label your device and change its home screen to make it instantly recognisable, so that it cannot be replaced by a fake once you set it up.
All the important settings, transaction signing and receiving address generation require on-device confirmation. Private keys are kept in an isolated environment, so the chances of them being stolen without the user compromising the recovery seed are extremely low. Thanks to the touch screen, the device requires no input from the keyboard of your computer, making it extra safe against malicious attacks.
The Most Luxurious Crypto Hardware Wallet In The Market
The Corazon is by far the most luxurious crypto hardware wallet in the market in terms of its futuristic design and materials. No effort was spared too in its packaging design, where opening it layer by layer to reveal the different accessories was a captivating experience in itself. Having it built on the Trezor Model T is also a huge plus due to Trezor’s reputation for security.
This however does not come at a cheap price. There are 3 models in the Corazon Collection consisting of the Corazon Titanium, Stealth and Gold with the Stealth and Gold being limited to 500 and 100 pieces worldwide.
The Corazon Stealth and Gold are also machined from Titanium but coated with an additional PVD (Physical Vapour Deposition) coat – the most durable colouring process available for materials such as titanium and popularly used in the luxury watch industry. These models are limited edition with their serial numbers laser engraved onto the back of the case.
