Ledger Nano

Secure and smart Bitcoin hardware wallet

Ledger Nano is a Bitcoin wallet on a smartcard device, small format and low weight. Comfortable and simple to use, you connect it directly to a USB port to manage your account, protect your bitcoins and make safe payments.

A VERY SIMPLE WAY TO SECURE YOUR BITCOINS

When you own bitcoins, storing and protecting them is your own responsibility. The Ledger Nano is accessible to all, and secured thanks to highest banking industry standards. Your account can be backed up and restored if your Nano is lost or stolen. You can use your Ledger Nano on any computer, PC, Mac or Linux. Anybody can install and use it without technical skills.

A WALLET ADAPTED TO YOUR NEEDS

You can use your Nano to store safely your bitcoins offline, and/or to make everyday secure payments online. Ledger Nano is also available in "Duo edition": 2 Nanos operating on the same account, for a family or group use, or, for example, to have a Nano you use daily and a backup one. The Strap edition works the same way, with one of the 2 Nanos shaped as a silicon wristband.
