The safest and easiest way to start your crypto journey.
What is a Hardware wallet？
When you own crypto, what you really own is a private key that gives you access to your crypto. You need to keep this key completely safe and out of hackers' reach. Ledger hardware wallets store your private keys (and therefore the access to your crypto) in a secure offline storage that only you can control. Not even Ledger can access your crypto.
Why choose Ledger？
When you first buy cryptocurrency, you’re issued with two keys: public and private. To protect these keys, you need to use a crypto wallet. The safest choice is using a Ledger hardware wallet, that stores private keys and signs transactions offline, making them resistant to online threats and independent of third parties.
Which Ledger is right for you？
All Ledger products provide industry-leading security for the top cryptocurrencies and NFTs, allowing you to securely manage and store them. Ledger products keep your private keys off the Internet and ensure that what you see is what you sign. Want our customizable, most convenient display for crypto security you can see, feel and touch?

Get our entry-level Ledger Nano S Plus.
When you own crypto, what you really own is the private key that gives you access to your assets. Anyone can deposit crypto assets in a public address, but funds cannot be removed from an address without the corresponding private key. Private keys shall not be compromised, as they guarantee ownership of digital assets. Hardware wallets store them offline, far from hackers' reach.
Why not just keep using my software wallet?
Software wallets are not safe for crypto storage because they create digital copies of your private keys which are at risk of being stolen by hackers. Anyone who gains access to your private keys can easily access your accounts and steal your funds.
What is Ledger?
Ledger is the world's leading platform for crypto and NFTs, combining Ledger hardware with the Ledger Live app to offer you the easiest and safest way to start your crypto journey while maintaining full control over your digital assets.
What are the main benefits of Ledger wallets?
If a hot wallet gets hacked, you could be left empty-handed. Securing the private keys for your crypto assets on a Ledger wallet means they are disconnected from the internet, so there’s no way for hackers to access the key, or the assets they’re securing.
What if I lose my Ledger device?
Crypto assets stay secure even if you lose your physical wallet. When setting up the device for the first time, you will get a 24-word recovery phrase that only you will have access to. Your secret recovery phrase represents the private keys to all your Ledger accounts. As long as you have access to this secret recovery phrase, you’ll be able to use it to restore your crypto accounts into any new or reset Ledger device.
How to keep my secret recovery phrase safe?
Never share your secret recovery phrase with anyone, including Ledger. Anyone trying to access your recovery phrase should be considered a scammer. Always keep a physical copy of your recovery phrase and never a digital one. Your recovery phrase needs to stay strictly offline.
If I want more accounts, I need more Ledgers, right?
No, a single Ledger device supports a large range of blockchain and can create a near-infinite amount of accounts on these networks, so you can manage a wide array of tokens simultaneously.
How many NFTs can one of these hold?
You can keep as many NFTs as you want in a single Ledger account. However: NFTs live on different blockchains. Some live on Ethereum, some on Solana, etc. Your Ledger device can only create accounts on supported blockchains.
Does Bluetooth affect the security of Ledger Stax or Ledger Nano X?
The private keys never leave the secure chip, therefore Bluetooth communication (BLE) does not expose the Ledger Stax or Ledger Nano X to any additional security threat. The BLE connection is end-to-end encrypted to protect user privacy. In the unlikely case, the BLE transport was to be compromised, an attacker would never be able to extract private keys or make users sign a transaction they do not wish to sign.
What are the differences between Ledger line-up?
All Ledger devices offer the same level of security and access to cryptos and NFTs. The Ledger Stax is our most advanced and customizable Ledger yet, with a customisable curved E Ink touchscreen. The Ledger Nano X is our mobile-first Ledger for convenient day-to-day, on-the-go use. And the Ledger Nano S Plus is our no-brainer entry-level Ledger with all essentials to secure your digital assets
