    :lock: Trezor Firmware Monorepo

    You can buy the ETH through [Gemini]( They have low fees (0.35%) on trades made via their ActiveTrader interface on desktop and, unlike any other exchange, they offer free withdrawals even for Ethereum. After buying you can then transfer the ETH out to a cold wallet like [Ledger]( or [Trezor](, which is the safest option to store it long term.

    Ethereum Smart Contracts for locking your Ether and ERC20 tokens based on time and price conditions

    I've created an open-source project that allows you to do just that: . This is a bit more involving because it would require you to deploy the contract (cost ~$500 with current gas prices), and later configure it as described in readme. You can check out the origin of this project here
