Blockchain asset ARK releases major desktop wallet update

One of the most important updates on the new release is that it now includes native Ledger hardware wallet support, this feature was first announced last month.
Being able to use Ledger adds another layer of physical security and eliminates the need to input an entire passphrase when sending funds or voting from within the wallet.
