Top-Selling Cold Wallets of 2023

As we reflect on the phenomenal year that was 2023, here's a closer look at top-selling cold wallets that Monix proudly brought to the UK's crypto community.

Trezor Model T

  • Overview: The Trezor Model T has been about for a few years. Known for its large, full-colour touchscreen, it sets a high bar for user interaction in the crypto wallet space. This feature has made it a lot easier for users to enter PINs and review crypto addresses, significantly enhancing the UX.
  • Key Features: Apart from the impressive screen, the Trezor Model T stands out for its ability to purchase cryptocurrencies directly through the Trezor Wallet app using fiat currency. This level of integration is a UX life-saver, offering users an all-in-one platform for buying, storing, and exchanging cryptocurrencies.
  • Security: With private keys stored and isolated inside the device, the Trezor Model T ensures top-notch security. The addition of a PIN and optional passphrase creates multiple layers of security.
  • Why it was a bestseller: The combination of a user-friendly interface, high-level security, Trezor brand trust and the convenience of an in-app exchange has made the Trezor Model T a top choice for both beginners and experienced users. It truly appeals to everybody.


SafePal S1

  • Overview: The SafePal S1 brings a unique combination of a full-colour screen and a D-pad, complemented by a built-in camera for high-speed QR code scanning. This design makes the transaction-signing process both secure and convenient.
  • Key Features: Supporting over 30,000 cryptocurrencies across 54 blockchains, including a variety of ERC-20 and BEP-20 tokens, the SafePal S1 caters to a broad spectrum of crypto enthusiasts. Its capacity to manage NFTs adds another layer of versatility​​​​.
  • Security: What sets the SafePal S1 apart is its air-gapped transaction capability, eliminating the need for Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, NFC, or USB connections. This feature, combined with its CC EAL 5+ certification and self-destruct mechanism, positions it as a pinnacle of security in hardware wallets​​.
  • Why it was a bestseller: The combination of its advanced security features, support for a wide range of assets, and the innovative air-gapped transaction system have made the SafePal S1 a preferred choice for users prioritising security without compromising on convenience. The fact it checks in as one of our most affordable crypto wallets probably doesn't hurt either!



  • Overview: The BitBox02, from Swiss company Shift Cryptosecurity AG, offers two editions: one supporting multiple cryptocurrencies and another exclusively for Bitcoin. Its compact design resembles an unassuming USB stick, providing discreet and portable security.
  • Key Features: The BitBox02 features intuitive touch sensors on both sides, enabling easy navigation for transaction verification, address reception, and more. This design makes it user-friendly, particularly for confirming actions directly on the device​​.

Each device undergoes rigorous authentication at the factory setup, and USB communication is encrypted for added protection against external threats​​.
  • Why it was a bestseller: The BitBox02's blend of discreet design, robust security, and user-friendly features, along with its open-source approach, have long made it a preferred choice for users seeking a reliable and straightforward crypto wallet.


OneKey Touch

  • Overview: We added OneKey products to Monix in 2023 and the most popular by far has been the OneKey Touch. Known for its secure and user-friendly interface, it brings a new option at the top-end of the crypto hardware wallet market. Its compact and lightweight design, complemented by a 3.1-inch touchscreen, provides a seamless user experience.
  • Key Features: Supporting over 1,000 cryptocurrencies and 43+ blockchains, the OneKey Touch caters to a huge range of crypto traders and HODLers. Its standout features include a secure element chip, open-source firmware, and the ability to set a custom PIN and passphrase for enhanced security​​​​.
  • Security: The OneKey Touch uses a secure element chip (similar to those used in passports or credit cards) for tamper-resistant storage, ensuring it is almost impossible for attackers to extract or modify stored keys. It also facilitates secure boot processes, ensuring the integrity of the device's firmware​​.
  • Why it was a bestseller: Its combination of ultra-secure features, ease of setup, and versatility in managing and trading crypto on various blockchains has made the OneKey Touch a hit, especially among beginners looking for a straightforward and reliable hardware wallet​​. In our opinion it is also one of the cleanest looking crypto wallets out there.

Trezor One

  • Overview: The Trezor One is a beautifully simplistic piece of kit. It stands out with its impact-resistant ABS plastic casing and an ARM Cortex-M3 processor. It's also earned its place on this list, having topped countless "Best Crypto Hardware Wallet" lists for years and years since its release in 2014.
  • Key Features: The Trezor One supports a list of over 1,200 coins and tokens, including all 10,000+ ERC20 tokens. Although it supports slightly fewer options than the Trezor Model T, it covers many major coins, making it a versatile choice for users​​​​.

Its ability to store NFTs on supported networks adds to its appeal, despite the need for third-party apps for NFT transactions​​.

Monix is now stocking its successor, the ELLIPAL Titan 2.0 which was released in December 2023.
  • Key Features: The ELLIPAL Titan features an aluminium alloy housing, which is resistant to dust and water. This air-encapsulated design, coupled with a 1400mAh battery, ensures durability and long-lasting performance​​.

ELLIPAL Titan Mini

  • Overview: The Titan Mini continued the legacy of the ELLIPAL Titan, by maintaining the same high-security standards and convenience but in a more portable form. Its metal frame is made from aluminium alloy which contributes to its enhanced durability, making it an ideal choice for on-the-go users​​.
  • Key Features: Coming in a bit cheaper that the original Titan, the Titan Mini offers excellent value, making it an attractive option for those seeking a high-quality wallet without a hefty price tag. It supports around 36 blockchains and over 10,000 tokens. Both the Titan and Titan Mini support staking for popular Proof-of-Stake cryptocurrencies.

This design eliminates the need for USB cables or Bluetooth connectivity, significantly enhancing security against remote attacks.
  • Why it was a bestseller: The ELLIPAL Titan Mini gained popularity due to its combination of high-quality build, comprehensive security features, and user-friendly interface. Its ability to support a wide range of cryptocurrencies and staking options, along with its competitive pricing, resonated well with the needs of the modern crypto user, driving its sales on Monix​​.


Best-Selling Seed Phrase Storage of 2023

ELLIPAL Mnemonic Metal

  • Overview: Recognising the vulnerability of paper-stored seed phrases, especially as your crypto holdings grow, is a natural progression for security-obsessed crypto investors. This seed phrase storage case has emerged as a vital solution for ensuring the longevity and safety of your crypto wallets​​. It has since been replaced by the ELLIPAL Seed Phrase Steel which Monix now has in stock for the new year!

Your Feedback and Market Trends of 2023

Looking back on 2023, I'm extremely proud to say that Monix did really well. With customers giving us a perfect average rating of 5 out of 5, this shows we're doing a great job keeping our customers happy and providing top-notch products and services.

From feedback we received, you really loved our free next day delivery and you also valued the expert advice we provided. In terms of trends, a big thing we noticed in 2023 was more people choosing to buy hardware wallets and seed phrase storage together. To respond to this, we have created a special mix & match deal that made these products cheaper and more convenient to buy.

We also saw that people were starting to tend towards lesser-known brands. We're glad about this. It means our customers are getting more confident and curious about crypto hardware wallets, looking beyond the typical big names.
