MaidSafeCoin and Trezor

I just moved some maids from an exchange to my trezor as I thought they would be better stored there, however I didnt realize that extracting the private key from my trezor address wont be easy.

I found this but seems a little complicated.

Would anyone have a tip on how to spend/transfer maidsafecoins stored on a trezor?

I don’t have a Trezor though I do think I can ask someone nearby sometime soon about their experience :wink:

I’ve asked, and checked it out’; trezor is not functioning with maidsafecoins;

Though there are some hardware solutions I was introduced to, More on this is possible; though considering launch is imminent not sure how many of us will need a hardware solution for maidsafecoins… keep them on a paper!

This article states that it generates a seed which you can use to retrieve your private keys. Did your Trezor not come with instructions on how to do this? If you can get a hold of the private key of the address holding your MaidSafeCoins, you should be able to import them to a mastercoin-enabled wallet.

Yepp you definitely have the right idea here @eblanshey ; yet out of the box trezor is not set up to work with maidsafecoin;

If you can’t access the private key on the Trezor maybe you could do this:

  1. Install Electrum on an offline computer
  2. “Import” your Trezor wallet to Electrum by using the 12 word seed
  3. Get a hold of the specific private key(s) in the wallet which are associated with your MaidSafeCoin
  4. Use those to send the MSC

Awesome, thanks so much

Attention, when you import the seed from your paper backup into any software, you are loosing the main advantage of TREZOR > offline level security. After loading your seed into Electrum, you should move all your coins to a new wallet on TREZOR, if you want to keep the original level of security.
