Lisk Ledger App now Supports the New Ledger Nano X
A few days ago, Hirish announced in a post that the Lisk Ledger app is ready for the support of Ledger Nano X.
He had the chance to work with a Developer version of Nano X, and this allowed to provide support for the new version of the hardware wallet even before the public release.
In a previous article we have already talked about Liskish Wallet, the first Lisk wallet compatible with Ledger and that allows all liskers to keep their coins safe, and Ledger Nano S, the most used hardware wallet in the market. The strengths of the S version are the combination of very high safety (it is fully-certified by ANSSI, the French cybersecurity agency) and ease of use, combined with multi-currency support.
The new Nano X version has the same excellent features as the S model by adding Bluetooth Low Energy connectivity. This will allow its owners to use it directly from their smartphone without having to go through a PC. However, the classic cable connection is still available. Another new feature compared to the previous model is the presence of a new display with more resolution, through which it is possible to display more characters arranged on two lines. Everything is supported by a 100 mAh battery that should allow a duration of a few weeks of use (as there are no official statements about it, it is assumed that it will depend a lot on the use), while recharging can be done via the microUSB port.
As for the Bluetooth connection, the company specifies that it is end-to-end encrypted, in order to protect users’ privacy. They also state that, in the unfortunate hypothesis of compromising Bluetooth communication, a hacker would still not be able to extract private keys or sign a transaction that the user does not intend to send. For those who do not want to take the risk, you can disable the Bluetooth connection and use it only via USB cable.
However, one of the most important news is the possibility of installing up to 100 Apps without having insufficient memory problems, eliminating the main limit of the current Nano S which instead stops at 4-5 due to poor memory.
The new Ledger Nano X is sold at a price of 119 € including taxes and at the moment it is in pre-order, with deliveries that will begin by the end of May.
