EMURGO, the official commercial arm of Cardano, the popular third-generation blockchain, today announced full integration of Cardano’a native cryptocurrency ADA with Ledger, the security and infrastructure provider for blockchain assets and apps.
With the Ledger Nano S now compatible with Cardano’s ADA, it enables investors to protect their private keys through Ledger’s hardware and guard access to their ADA with increased security. The Ledger Nano S also integrates with the EMURGO-developed Yoroi wallet, the first official companion app to support the Cardano Ledger hardware wallet.
This initiative has been sponsored by the Cardano Foundation through funding the development of the Cardano Ledger app and associated software libraries. This project also benefited from the support of Vacuum Labs and IOHK’s development team.
