According to sources, the investment was confirmed by the Executive Chairman of Ledger, Eric Larcheveque. However, he abstained from making any comments.
Nevertheless, he sent a tweet to the publication which broke the news:
“We will always need hardware wallets, but to accompany a revolution crypto based on a personal sovereignty accessible to all, the Smartphone will actually play a central role.”
The most popular product from Ledger is the Ledger Nano S Hardware Wallet. The Ledger Nano S provides a private, secure wallet for over 23 cryptocurrencies. It resembles a flash drive and cost less than $100. The firm also offers infrastructural solutions like crypto vaults for institutions and banks.
