About the Ledger Nano X

What is Ledger Nano X for ?

The Ledger Nano X is the latest digital wallet from Ledger whose role is to protect your cryptocurrencies. Keeping one's wallet secure is a problem for users of cryptocurrencies. If it is possible to leave your cryptocurrencies on the exchange platforms for example, it is always more judicious to keep your private key. To do so, nothing better than to hold a physical digital wallet, commonly known as a Hardware Wallet.

The Nano X Ledger is a consumer hardware wallet that shines by its simplicity of use without compromising the security aspect.


Ledger is a French company launched in 2014 by 8 experts with complementary backgrounds in embedded security, cryptocurrencies and entrepreneurship, united around the idea of creating secure solutions for blockchain applications. Ledger's objective is to secure the holding and transactions in cryptocurrencies for individual users.

After having proposed a first version of the Ledger Nano in 2016 (Nano S), the company starts marketing the Ledger Nano X in 2019. It offers greater storage for crypto applications and, for the first time, a Bluetooth connection.
