The launch of the wallet also represents Ledger’s way to acknowledge the growing role of digital currencies in everyday life.
Ledger, one of the biggest hardware crypto wallet manufacturers, recently announced plans to release a new hardware wallet for non-fungible tokens (NFTs). According to the project, this will be a limited edition called the Ledger Nano S Plus and there will only be 10,000 individual devices available for pre-order. In addition to the wallet announcement, Ledger also revealed a new partnership with the Proof of Attendance Protocol (POAP).
Ledger Launches a New NFT Wallet
The NFT sector has been under the spotlight for over a year now, ever since it emerged as a major trend in early 2021. Since then, it has attracted countless celebrities, companies, major investors, regular users, artists, collectors, and more.
The company’s previous products, such as the Ledger Nano series of hardware wallets, have given Ledger quite a reputation among wallet providers. The devices proved to be safe, efficient, easy to use, and very affordable for a large number of investors, who are using them to protect their cryptocurrencies successfully.
With the rise of NFTs, Ledger recognized the need to secure its users’ digital memories and collectibles, which is why it launched the new wallet, and also why it partnered with POAP.
Ledger’s New Global Partnership
POAPS are considered to be NFTs’ digital memories, and they are used as proof of attendance and engagement for key moments represented by NFTs. This is why it was crucial for Ledger to partner with the company in order to launch its new NFT wallet. POAP’s CEO, Lucas Varra, said that anyone who wishes to build a lasting collection and secure it with Ledger Nano S Plus will find the new product extremely useful and valuable.
The new wallet’s Genesis Edition will also feature a special engraving, while all users who purchase the wallet will find a Genesis POAP NFT redeem card as part of the package. This will allow them to prove that they own an exclusive hardware wallet. Furthermore, POAP will also launch a special edition NFT collection for future Ledger events.
Ledger’s Chief Experience Officer, Ian Rogers, also commented on the new development, saying that the partnership and the Genesis Edition are Ledger’s way to acknowledge that digital assets are growing and that they will continue to increase as a “tool for life experiences.” The company has made the wallet affordable by charging $79 per piece.
With the initiative, Ledger has moved further down the path of bringing millions of people into Web 3.0 – the next generation of the internet, driven by the promise of decentralization.
