Monero releasing final firmware update for Ledger support

Monero states that official support for hardware wallet maker Ledger is coming soon.

Riccardo Spagni, a core team member of Monero, says that a firmware update (the final one) for XMR support is dropping soon. This version will include GUI support for the Ledger Nano S. This was first revealed in its dev kit a month ago and has been in the process of improving and fixing bugs.

Now, support for the Ledger should be available soon in a fully functional manner, based on a Tweet from Spagni. Storing cryptocurrency in a hardware is pretty cool and offers a physical means to carry your stash around. When you carry it around in public, it’s offline. But when you connect it to a compatible device, it prompts for a pin code to exchange and use your funds.

Monero is going to be the newest addition to Ledger Nano S support. It can also be used to store ERC20 tokens.

Currently supported coins include the following:

• Bitcoin (BTC)
• Bitcoin Cash (BCH)
• Bitcoin Gold (BTG)
• Ethereum (ETH)
• Ethereum Classic (ETC)
• Litecoin (LTC)
• Dogecoin (DOGE)
• Zcash (ZEC)
• Ripple (XRP)
• Dash (DASH)
• Stratis (STRAT)
• Komodo (KMD)
• Ark (ARK)
• Expanse (EXP)
• Ubiq (UBQ)
• Vertcoin (VTC)
• Viacoin (VIA)
• Neo (NEO)
• Stealthcoin (XST)
• Stellar (XLM)
• Hcash (HSR)
• Digibyte (DGB)
• Qtum (QTUM)
• PivX (PIVX)
• PosW (POSW)
