Ledger, a company that develops the hardware wallet Ledger NANO S has announced that they will support EOS, Waves and five other smaller cryptocurrencies. Their official verified twitter handle wrote in a tweet:
This is good news for all of these cryptocurrencies because this will now allow users of these cryptos to store their crypto assets securely in the Ledger NANO S hardware wallet.
In another tweet, ledger stated that “The EOS third-party app was made possible by a @CypherglassBP bounty”.
Earlier this year, EOS block producer candidate, Cypherglass offered a bounty of 50,000 dollars for EOS Ledger NANO S support and another 50,000 for Trezor support. Now that Ledger NANO S support has arrived, the person or group that helped made this possible will receive the bounty.
Rob Finch, CEO of Cyperglass announced the bounty winner in a YouTube update. The winner was named as cryptofairy (online pseudonyms of the winner). No other information was shared about the winner.
