The world's most popular cryptocurrency wallet is now available from Modus Brands’ authorised retailers
LEDGER - THE COMPANY
Founded in 2014, Ledger began as a small startup created by security experts. Their goal was to create a secure wallet solution for blockchain technologies. Following rapid growth (including securing recent investments over $75 million) they have become the go-to solution for those wanting to secure their crypto currencies in a wallet. Selling over 1 million hardware wallets in 2017 alone, Ledger continues to expand, with their sights set on commanding the sector.
Ledger keeps your cryptocurrency safe by storing currencies ‘within’ a wallet. These allow users to securely access their bitcoins or other currencies by plugging their wallet into a computer.
Ledger currently support Bitcoin, Ethereum, Litecoin, Ripple, Dogecoin, Zcash, Dash Stratis, Komodo, Ark, Expanse, Ubiq, Vertcoin, Viacoin, Neo, Stealth, Stellar, Digibyte, Qtum, ZenCash, NanoVault, Nimiq and many more cryptocurrencies.
Always looking to expand, a recent partnership with Intel will see Leger’s operating system BOLOS integrating into the tech giants ‘Software Guard Extensions’ (SGX) secure storage product line, in a bid to provide new avenues for storing cryptocurrency holdings.
LEDGER NANO-S HARDWARE WALLET
The Ledger Nano-S is the world’s most popular cryptocurrency wallet. Combining security, functionality and ease of use, it can safely store over 30 different cryptocurrencies. Featuring a USB plug, the secure portable wallet can connect to any computer. Its OLED display notifies users of trades and a quick tap on the side buttons confirms each transaction.
Beyond its core usage as a wallet, ledger have expanded the capabilities of their wallets to support the FIDO® Universal Second Factor authentication standard, allowing it to be used for two-stage authentication on Google, Dropbox, GitHub or Dashlane.
THE FUTURE OF MONEY
The finance sector is seeing a tidal wave of technological changes and challenges that are set to disrupt the ‘status-quo’ of the current banking system.
We expect to see a totally digital future, where cash is a novelty, and companies such as Ledger capitalise on emerging markets, foreseeing opportunities that help consumers securely access their money.
Ledger’s technology doesn’t just end at the consumer, opportunities for blockchain technology in the B2B sector are rife. Industries such as transportation, telecom, finance, healthcare will all benefit as companies such as Ledger develop bespoke technologies to help secure data.
THE PERFECT PARTNERSHIP
Ledger have partnered with UK distributor Modus Brands to offer their hardware wallets to UK retailers. Modus Brands are quick to embrace new technology and are glad to be working with a like-minded company that are changing the future of global payments and currency.
Due to the security focus and technical complexities of products such as the Ledger Nano-S only selected retailers will be authorised to stock Ledger products, we ask customers to refer to Ledger’s official list of authorised resellers.
