What is a Hardware Wallet, and Why Choose a Ledger?
1. Why a hardware wallet ?
When you own crypto, what you really own is a private key that gives you access to your coins.
You need to keep this key completely safe.
2. What is a hardware wallet?
Hardware wallets place access to your private keys (and therefore crypto) offline, which means hackers can’t get to it – even when your device is connected to your computer
3. How is your crypto safer with Ledger?
Crypto “ownership” is not about the location of the coins, but access control. With Ledger, nobody can access your coins but you (not even us).
4. Industry-leading security
Nanos are the only hardware wallets that combine independent, third-party certification (ANSSI) with a proprietary operating system (BOLOS).
Nano Device, Massive Possibilities
The Nano S can store up to 3 different coins simultaneously. But that doesn’t mean you can manage only 3 coins total.
It means the Nano S only has room for 3 coin applications to be loaded at the same time – including the tokens associated with those coins.
You can manage as many supported coins as you want with one Nano S – all 1800+ if you like.
Just follow the instructions on our website to install/uninstall apps as needed.
