Ledger Nano S Review
If you’ve considered a cryptocurrency hardware wallet, then you’ve probably already come across the Ledger Nano S. And for good reason! The Nano S is the result of success of the original Ledger Nano. A screen and pair of buttons helps the user enter information on the device directly. But perhaps the most sought-after aspect of the Ledger Nano S is its multiple token support and attractive price. It is only $69 USD (about 58 euros) to top competitor Trezor’s $117 USD (about 99 euros).

In the beginning, hardware wallets were primarily designed solely for use with Bitcoin. Even as alternative cryptocurrencies such as Litecoin started popping up, no hardware wallets were made to support this. Part of the problem is differing cryptographic algorithms. Ledger decided to solve with this with Ledger Blue and Ledger Nano S devices, which support apps. That’s right, the app model is now prevalent on our security devices!
