Liskish Wallet : The First Ledger Wallet App for Lisk
The recent release of Mainnet, covered in a recent article, signified the completion of the Lisk Ecosystem 1.0.
Keeping the coins safe is fundamental to avoid losses or theft. One of the best ways to guard your tokens is to store them in an hardware wallet.
This type of wallet is safer than the common alternatives (software wallets, online wallets, smartphone app) because they safely store the private key of users on the device. It is therefore not possible to get access to one’s private key without having physical possession of the hardware wallet.
The most recommended type of hardware wallet is Ledger’s Nano S .
Thanks to a combination of start-of-art security and simplicity, the Nano S is definitely the most used hardware wallet in the market.
It is also a multicurrency wallet, supporting different cryptocurrencies! Visit this page if you wish to access the complete list of the currencies compatible with the hardware wallet.
The most attentive of you might have notices an absence in the list. This is right, there is no mistake: until recently there was no Ledger Wallet App where to safely store Lisk.
Enters Liskish Wallet, a fork of Lisk-Nano, a software wallet for Lisk developed by Hirish. As Hirish himself said on Reddit, Liskish Wallet “is a Feature Rich Lisk Wallet”. This big community achievement was possible thanks also to delegate vekexasia and his work on Lisk Ledger App and his support during integration coding phase.
The software can be installed on Ledger Nano S and can safely store Lisk tokens.
A Trezor integration should also be on its way and will be released soon.
The Liskish Wallet takes advantages of the Ledger functionalities and allows its users to send and receive Lisk and to vote for delegates, making both procedures as easy and intuitive as possible.
The release of this wallet marks an important step towards an increased security, allowing users to safely store Lisk tokens on the Ledger Nano S wallets.
