Crypto wallet company Ledger have announced their latest project, Nano X - A Bluetooth enabled device which means usability on mobile devices is now possible.
Ledger revealed their latest project at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Last Vegas, Coindesk reported.
The Nano X features bluetooth technology, allowing the wallet to be used with mobile devices. This will allow users to avoid using laptops or desktop computers when transacting. The ability to utilize the Nano X without a computer is a major leap forward for the company, who admitted one of the issues with the Nano Ledger S was the fact that it always needed to be connected to a computer device.
Ledger have currently sold over 1.3 million Ledger Nano S devices, which is the latest crypto hardware wallet sold by the company. Ledger CEO Eric Larchevêque declined to give a price of the new wallet when it launches, but admitted that the Ledger Nano S will be reduced in price once the Nano X is launched.
Larchevêque commented on the device, saying that the screen will be bigger than the Nano S, to allow users easier visibility when using the device, also admitting that the device is "more advanced"
The Nano X will also feature more memory space, a welcome addition as the Nano Ledger S constantly requires users to delete token apps to add new coins.
Larchevêque commented on the increased memory saying “We have lots of third-party developers who are developing applications, We want to make sure that these applications can only sign transactions for their own private key.”
The addition of a new upgraded crypto wallet comes at a time when 2019 is looking to push the boundaries of mass adoption, and hopefully just in time for the next bull run, which saw Ledger sales soar in 2017 when the last bull run happened.
