A Ledger wallet is probably the safest place to store your cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin. The Ledger Nano is a hardware wallet that can be used to store many cryptocurrencies including Bitcoin, Ethereum, and other altcoins. It is based on state of the art safety features for storing cryptographic assets and securing digital payments. It can be easily connected to a computer via USB and has a secure OLED display to double-check and confirm each transaction with a single tap on its side buttons.
The hardware wallet was founded in 2014 by a team of eight members. Now the firm employs 82 people in San Francisco, Paris and Vierzon. The company claims to have sold over one million cryptocurrency hardware wallets across 165 countries and says that it is already profitable. It raised $75 million in January 2018 which was led by venture capital fund Draper Esprit.
The Ledger Nano hardware wallets happen to be the most purchased item in the US state of Nevada according to a research done by personal shopping assistant app, Earny. They used the data from more than 100 million online purchases between 1st of November 2017 and 1st of February 2018 by directly monitoring users’ email inboxes for receipts to find price drops. This enabled them to get cross-industry data held separately by online shopping websites like Amazon, Best Buy, Walmart, Zappos, etc.
The researchers, however, have not given any reasons as to why Nevada happens to be the best buyers of the hardware wallet in the US. One possible reason may be that the state offers more interesting spending opportunities for Bitcoin holders. Like the Las Vegas strippers accepting Bitcoins as payment via QR tattoos to increase the privacy of their clients, this also attracted the attention of the Bitcoin investors. The strip club also provides an in-house Bitcoin ATM to buy cryptocurrency at the club.
Alan Kinsley, a Twitteratti says:
“Ledger Nano is Awesome!! Safer than a ‘bank’. yes.. LOL! But is it really 100% secure? Im using it right now and I don’t want to end up losing my account due to some technical issues. If so happens, who’s gonna be held responsible?”
Another Twitterer replying to him says:
“If you don’t trust the hardware wallets go for a decentralized anonymous offshore banking system known as the DigitalBank which has an unbreakable encryption.”
