Cryptocurrency storage with Ledger Nano S: safe & functional!
Here, you will find an innovative solution for managing emerging crypto currencies: Ledger Nano S is a handy hardware wallet for Ethereum, Bitcoin and Altcoins. It is based on efficient security features in order to store any cryptographic asset. A connection via USB is possible to any computer and this wallet has an embedded secure OLED display. Because of this, every transaction can be checked or confirmed by tapping the side buttons once. Newest generation of hardware wallet
If you own or want to use cryptocurrencies on a regular basis, you should protect your confidential information and access to funds. With Ledger Nano S, secrets such as private passwords are never revealed: sensitive transactions are isolated within your hardware wallet in a secure element protected by a PIN code. Transactions can therefore not be manipulated by others because they are physically verified on the embedded screen. Pay and authenticate with maximum security

If you are not familiar with the term hardware wallet, you may be wondering what are the advantages compared to a paper purse or an encrypted private file on a computer?
Hardware wallets offer a complete isolation of cryptographic secrets and the computer/smartphone. Both are quite easy to hack as their weaknesses are well known. If you keep your sensitive credentials there, it's only a matter of time before you will lose everything.
A paper wallet is not really safe. It requires you to import your private data to your computer. And if you believe that a password is sufficient for encryption, then malware is smart enough to wait for unavoidable decryption even before you can use your credit.
A hardware wallet is portable, practical and backed-up by a paper wallet that allows an easy recovery in the event of a loss. If you own and regularly use a significant amount of bitcoins, the use of a hardware wallet should be self-evident. Attention! With the update to 1.4.1 are now up to max. 18 simultaneous wallets possible
