Ledger’s new hardware wallet supports non-fungible tokens (NFT)

The new Ledger Nano S Plus is available

We no longer present Ledger, founded by Éric Larchevêque and Thomas France, this French company has been marketing hardware wallets since 2014. After the famous Nano S, which sold more than 3 million copies across the globe, here is the Nano SPluswhich is, among other things, optimized for NFTs.

Intended for replace the brand’s flagship hardware walletthis new model is described in these terms, by Pascal Gauthier, CEO of the company:

“The Ledger Nano S Plus is a Nano S on steroids. It gives you more space to freely enjoy the ever-expanding world of DeFi and NFTs. We continue to improve our state-of-the-art hardware devices to allow you to safely explore the Web 3.0 ecosystem. »

In the words of Ian Rogers, Director of Experience at Ledger, we finally have a Nano X here, with less Bluetooth connection.

The novelty of NFTs in the Ledger Nano S Plus

The first highlight of this new hardware wallet is its storage capacity. This model uses the same memory as the Nano X, namely the possibility of storing more 100 apps and support more than 5500 different assets.

Its design and screen have also been redesigned compared to the original Nano S, thus offering better user comfort.

Another novelty brought by Ledger concerns non-fungible tokens (NFT). Although these have always been storable and transferable to all models of the brand’s hardware wallets, the Nano S Plus will allow you to view them in the Ledger Live app.

Moreover, it is a tool that developers could appreciate. If until then they had to use an emulator to simulate a hardware wallet and test their applications, it will no longer be necessary, because it can be done directly on the Nano S Plus.

With a purchase price barely higher than its predecessor for increased functionality, the latest creation from the French unicorn should have no trouble finding its audience. The security of crypto-assets being a major issue of Web 3.0, Ledger shows once again that it intends to play its leading role in this dimension.
