Hi All,

Maybe someone can help me out.

I have a Trezor. Now, I have my private seed safe, which I like.

However:

My privacy is not safe. Because when I use the Trezor Wallet, my local browser is connecting the (bitcore) servers of Trezor. So my public key's are exploted. So I am not using my own trustable Bitcoin full node.

I tried to install my own Bitcore server, but I can not get that worked.

I tried to run Etherum Personal Server (EPS) to connect Etherum to. In Etherum I can use my Trezor. That works. But i do not like this, because it is a difficult setup. Also EPS is in beta.

I have three questions:

  1. Is it true that when I use the Trezor Wallet, Trezor will know my transaction history and public addresses I am watching?
  2. Is there another way I can solve this?
  3. Ehm…. am I the only one having this problem? Are my expectations to high? I expect, when I buy a product like Trezor, it will be totally safe, using the strengths of Bitcoin and so it is possible with this product to use my own full node. Is it strange when I say this is not a mature part of bitcoin (having the private key in a hardware wallet and using your own bitcoin full node)

It looks like I better can use the official bitcoin wallet (bitcoin-qt), because that one I can trust, and throw away my Trezor. I understood bitcoin-core it is a HD wallet already.

Thanks
