Sending and receiving payments, checking your accounts, and managing multiple addresses are all easily accomplished even for the novice user. As the Ledger wallet supports FIDO Universal Second Factor standards, the authentication process on compatible services such as Google, Dropbox and Github is also simplified.
The Ledger Nano S hardware wallet supports a variety of cryptocurrencies and digital assets. Being an HD wallet, you can control multiple accounts for all supported cryptocurrencies.
The clear OLED display makes checking transactions hassle-free. You can confirm each transaction using the ergonomically designed physical buttons.
Your private keys are held in an inaccessible environment locked by a PIN code to prevent exposure and ensure ironclad security.
