The latest cryptocurrency news show that the French-based cryptocurrency hardware wallet manufacturer Ledger officially released a dedicated mobile app for some of its products, according to a blog post that was published on January 28th.
Dubbed Ledger Live, this pap will allow users of Ledger Nano X wallets to use their Bitcoin wallets without the need for a cable through their mobile device, paired with a Bluetooth connection.
Primarily meant for Nano X holders in the beginning, the app will integrate to users with Nano S or Ledger Blue devices – which can right now only check their balance information, in what the blog post refers to as a “consultation mode.”
Since the Nano S does not have built-in Bluetooth, users will need to purchase a USB-on-the-go (OTG) cable. As the blog post explained:
“In the future, Ledger Nano S users (Android smartphones only) will be able to transact as well through the use of an OTG cable. We are working on having the same features for the Ledger Live mobile app as the desktop version.”
Ledger’s app is very similar to its competitors such as Trezor and its Bridge interface which was rolled out across the wallet family last year. This mobile push comes as hardware wallets increase in terms of popularity, especially among savvy crypto investors who are aware of the security dangers of their hot wallets.
