IOTA Integration with Ledger Hardware Wallet

IOTA Integration with Ledger Hardware Wallet

Today the IOTA Foundation has announced integration with the Ledger hardware wallet making it possible to secure your IOTA tokens away from a computer or phone, significantly improving security.

This news marks an important milestone for the IOTA project. Before the much-welcomed release of Trinity in May 2018, users had to settle for a functional, though less than user-friendly, desktop wallet.

The arrival of Trinity provided a better experience and many essential features such as a secure seed generator, but couldn’t completely protect from threats that arise from compromised devices. Ledger solves this problem.

Ledger supporting IOTA was the result of a fruitful collaboration:

“Providing the highest level of security and quality is a major focus at both Ledger and IOTA,” said Eric Larchevêque, CEO at Ledger. “The collaboration between the teams created an immediate synergy concentrated on developing a compatibility feature allowing users to access, store and manage IOTA tokens on Ledger devices. We are thrilled to welcome IOTA onto the Ledger platform.”
