4+ Million People Can Now Store EGLD, NFTs And ESDT Tokens On Ledger Hardware Wallets, And 1.5+ Million People Can Use EGLD From The Ledger Live Wallet App

We’re excited to announce that EGLD is now available in the popular Ledger Live wallet app that more than 1.5 million people use to manage their crypto holdings.

Furthermore, with the newly released Elrond Ledger app v1.0.17, more than 4 million hardware wallet owners can now securely store their MEX, RIDE, NFTs and any other kind of ESDT token.

As a result, Maiar DEX users and NFT owners can now enjoy an additional layer of security by managing their assets and operations directly from cold storage. Thanks to the easy integration of Ledger authentication with any dApp, security is further boosted for any Elrond user.

An outstanding fact is that the Elrond core devs are the first team to author the integration of their blockchain in Ledger Live - they also wrote the Elrond app for Ledger Nano! - using the open source code and tools available in the Ledger Development Portal.

In continuous close collaboration with the Ledger development team, the Elrond core devs will add more functionality to the Ledger Live application, such as ESDTs, staking, NFTs and smart contract management.

“The Elrond Network is a radically new blockchain architecture, designed from the ground up for unprecedented scalability and efficiency. We took it upon ourselves to write the integration with the powerful capabilities of the Ledger hardware wallet and applications, to ensure that our users get maximum security and compatibility for their EGLD, NFTs and ESDT assets.” said Lucian Mincu, Elrond Network CIO.
“The Elrond team developed the Elrond Nano application and the support of Elrond in Ledger Live in full autonomy using our SDK and documentation. We are happy to offer best-in class security for this project. This is just the beginning of our collaboration. Many more features and services on the Elrond blockchain will arrive soon.” said Fabrice Dautriat, Head of Platform at Ledger.

EGLD is now fully available on the Ledger Live desktop app, with the mobile app integration to follow shortly.

About Elrond

Elrond is the internet-scale blockchain, designed from scratch to bring a 1000-fold cumulative improvement in throughput and execution speed. To achieve this, Elrond introduces two key innovations: a novel Adaptive State Sharding mechanism, and a Secure Proof of Stake (PoS) algorithm, enabling linear scalability with a fast, efficient, and secure consensus mechanism. Thus, Elrond can process upwards of 15,000 transactions per second (TPS), with 6-second latency, and negligible cost, attempting to become the backbone of a permissionless, borderless, globally accessible internet economy.
