The IOTA Foundation announced the full release of its Trinity wallet for mobile and desktop. The wallet simplifies the process for storing seeds and sending and receiving tokens. Read our full test and review of the wallet.
The IOTA Foundation announced the full release of Trinity following the completion of an audit on the wallet by SIXGEN, a Maryland-based cybersecurity firm. The release provides a robust alternative to the Nostalgia, Nelium, and IOTA GUI Light wallets, among others.
“Our industry-leading wallet, Trinity, delivers on IOTA’s goal to provide secure, accessible and community-driven token storage for the international cryptocurrency marketplace,” said Dominik Schiener, the IOTA Foundation co-founder.
CryptoSlate went ahead and tested the wallet to assess the IOTA Foundation’s claims of usability.

Going through the account setup process was slightly more of a hassle than comparable Ethereum or Bitcoin wallets. One feature that Trinity boasts is secure SeedVault digital backup. These backups use the same standards as KeePass for encrypted seed backups.
However, during our tests importing the backed up seed required more than half a dozen attempts and only worked after tweaking the test device’s settings. If a user is unable to import the seed file then they will need to manually input the 81 character seed.

Importing the seed onto mobile could have been easier. Although there’s a camera feature for scanning a QR of the seed, we were unable to find a QR code of the seed on the wallet, meaning manual input was once again required.
