Today, Blockchain.com, a software and online wallet provider for cryptocurrency, announced a new partnership with Ledger, the developer of hardware wallets for crypto assets. Together, the companies have developed a custom hardware device, the Blockchain Lockbox, which is compatible with the Blockchain.com wallet.
The Blockchain.com Lockbox will allow Blockchain.com users to seamlessly and securely store crypto assets through an integration of cryptocurrency hardware and software. As individuals look to diversify how they manage their crypto assets, using a hardware wallet is a convenient alternative that allows them to store their crypto offline.
The Lockbox device offers Blockchain.com’s millions of users a convenient solution that harnesses Blockchain.com’s non-custodial software along with Ledger’s expertise in hardware security.
“The Lockbox is a reflection of what our companies both do best. We’ve created an elegant software and hardware integration that offers more functionality than previously existed in our space. We’re thrilled to offer the Lockbox to Blockchain users so they can easily manage their funds online and offline seamlessly.”
“With stories about crypto hacking continuing to dominate headlines, it’s obvious that security must be top of mind for all stakeholders in the crypto space. With the combined forces of Blockchain and Ledger, users are truly getting the best of both worlds. Our partnership with Blockchain is the first of its kind, but as two companies hyper-focused on crypto security, it’s one that’s a natural fit.”
The Blockchain.com Lockbox is available for pre-orders beginning October 25th with deliveries beginning in mid-November. Early customers will receive the special edition blue version of the Lockbox and existing Ledger customers will be able to pair their Nano S devices to the Blockchain.com wallet and benefit from the added functionality and ability to trade.
