We are excited to announce a partnership with Ledger. WAVES and Waves tokens are now fully integrated into the Ledger Nano S cryptocurrency hardware wallet.
As you probably know, Ledger is a leader in security and infrastructure solutions for cryptocurrencies and blockchain applications. Ledger has a team of professionals developing a variety of products and services to safeguard cryptocurrency assets for individuals and companies. Now, their hardware security solution Ledger Nano S supports Waves too!
This integration will bring Waves Client users a new level of security for every transaction they make. From now on, users will be able to perform any token transaction with complete confidence. Since the integration offers full compatibility with Ledger, all operations for tokens issued on the Waves platform will have Ledger support right out of the box.
Furthermore, the Waves DEX (decentralised exchange) will also enjoy these benefits. DEX users can use their Ledger hardware wallets to sign transactions, ensuring the highest level of security. Waves DEX is a fast and safe way to trade the most popular cryptocurrencies, with daily liquidity exceeding $6,000,000. You can read more about the exchange here.
Waves founder and CEO, Sasha Ivanov, commented on his Twitter: ‘Ledger supports WAVES now. Finally, you can store your Waves tokens in a more secure way. And in about a month we'll add 2FA on top, which is going to make Waves wallet totally bullet-proof.’
Ledger support for Waves will not only provide greater security but will increase the overall reliability of the Waves platform — reducing the possibility of hacking theft of funds almost to zero.
