Protecting your confidential data & fund access is crucial to cryptocurrency owners. The Ledger Nano S never exposes your private keys, your sensitive information is stored on the hardware wallet on a state-of-the-art secure element locked by your secure PIN code. You simply press a button to verify transactions, displayed on an embedded OLED screen. This helps ensure that the transactions don't get tampered with.
Companion apps for your Bitcoin, Ethereum, Litecoin & other blockchain based cryptocurrencies are included on the Ledger Nano S. Sending & receiving payments have been made a simple process. Now you can check your accounts & manage multiple addresses for each cryptocurrency from one single device. Bring your Ledger Nano S with when you travel, the Ledger Nano S hardware wallet is lightweight & easy to transport.
Ledger Nano S supports Bitcoin, Litecoin, Ethereum, Bitcoin Cash, Bitcoin Gold, Ethereum Classic, Litecoin, Dogecoin, Zcash, Ripple, Dash, Stratis, Komodo, Ark, Expanse, Ubiq, Vertcoin, Viacoin, Neo, Stealthcoin, Stellar, Hcash, Digibyte & Qtum. At any given time, you are able to hold multiple assets on your Ledger Nano S wallet.
Check & confirm transactions on the display on the go. Confirm transactions with the two physical buttons (anti-malware second factor) on the Ledger Nano S hardware wallet. The Ledger Nano S generates your recovery phrase offline & displays it to the blue OLED (Organic Light Emitting Diode) screen, this ensures that the recovery phrase is never on an internet-connected device. It's easy to confirm that the payment about to be sent is for the correct amount & to the correct address.
Your confidential data is never exposed, it is secured inside a strongly isolated environment locked by a PIN code. Even when you use a 4-digit PIN code, that's 10,000 possibilities (from 0000 - 9999). If an intruder enters the PIN code incorrectly three times, the device will erase your data & you will need to restore the Ledger Nano S hardware wallet with your backup.
Extend your Ledger Nano S to also use companion apps, these include wallet & management apps. With wallet apps, you can send & receive payments & include the ledger wallets for bitcoin, ethereum & ripple. The management apps will allow you to authenticate transactions. The management apps consist out of the Ledger Manager app (installing & removing apps from your Ledger Nano S) & the Ledger Authenticator app (Transaction validation from using your smartphone). If this is not sufficient for your usage requirements you can always create your own apps or make use of FIDO® U2F, GPG & SSH.
FIDO® CERTIFIED U2F
The Ledger Nano S hardware wallet also supports FIDO (Fast IDentity Online) Universal Second Factor standard that simplifies the authentication process on compatible online services such as Dashplane, Dropbox, Gmail & GitHub. Launched in 2013, this industry consortium addresses the lack of interoperability among strong authentication devices & the problems users face when creating & remembering multiple usernames & passwords. FIDO's founders include PayPal, Lenovo, & Nok Labs.
BACKUP & RESTORATION
Your Ledger Nano S uses a recovery sheet to restore its backups, this simplifies the process significantly. When you have another wallet which is BIP39 or BIP44 compatible, you have the option to restore your backup to that wallet. This helps you to keep your assets safe from loss due to hardware failure or theft.
The following currencies are supported on the Ledger Nano S at the moment.
