What Is the Ledger Nano X?
The Nano X is the latest hardware wallet from Ledger, a leading crypto wallet company.
This Bluetooth enabled hardware wallet is an upgrade on the popular Ledger Nano S, which sold over 1.5 million units worldwide.
The Nano X comes with improved user experience, design changes, and state-of-the-art security features.
Ledger also launched its complementary offering to the wallet– the Ledger Live Mobile app, which will allow users to manage their transactions securely and check their balances in real time.
Ledger Nano S users can also check their balances in read-only mode using this app. It will be available for both Android and iOS devices on January 28th.
The app and device can be connected via Bluetooth, helping to improve the user experience without compromising on security.
The device can hold up to 100 digital assets and comes with a larger screen.
Ledger CEO Eric Larchevêque commented on the new product saying:
“The Ledger Nano X includes all of what you loved about your Nano S, but with new and improved major features.”
