Ledger one of the worlds top providers of cold wallets and its flagship Nano range has just announced its next-generation cryptocurrency hardware wallet.
The Ledger Nano X new hardware wallet is a Bluetooth-enabled wallet, it also enhanced security, and has support for over 1,100 crypto assets, according to the company.
“With its Bluetooth connectivity and increased capacity, the Ledger Nano X provides an enhanced user experience while delivering the mobility and state-of-the-art security that customers expect from Ledger…” said Eric Larchevêque, CEO at Ledger.
The Ledger Nano X store private keys in a secure chip that never leaves the device. As such, if the Bluetooth connection were compromised, a hacker would not be able to extract private keys or remotely sign transactions.
This will also allow users to avoid using laptops or desktop computers when transacting. The ability to utilize the Nano X without a computer is a major leap forward for the company, who admitted one of the issues with the Nano Ledger S was the fact that it always needed to be connected to a computer device.
Ledger has currently sold over 1.3 million Ledger Nano S devices, which is the latest crypto hardware wallet sold by the company. Ledger CEO Eric Larchevêque declined to give a price of the new wallet when it launches but admitted that the Ledger Nano S will be reduced in price once the Nano X is launched.
