At the Consumer Electronics Show, crypto hardware wallet maker Ledger unveiled a new product, Nano X – a Bluetooth enabled hardware wallet that improves on the current Nano S version offered by Ledger which the company says has sold over 1.5 million units. The Nano X is built with enhanced security and improved user experience, Ledger says.

It’s also paired with the Ledger Live Mobile app, a new offering that will allow users manage secure transactions, check balance in real-time and install and un-install apps on the go. Users of the Nano S will also be able to use it to check their balance in read-only mode.

The Nano X’s Bluetooth feature enables for connection to smartphones through the Ledger Live Mobile app, providing an easier way to manage crypto assets on the go. It can store 100 crypto assets, over 6 times the capacity of its predecessor and includes a larger screen with improved interface.

“The Ledger Nano X includes all of what you loved about your Nano S, but with new and improved major features,” Ledger CEO Eric Larchevêque said. “With its Bluetooth connectivity and increased capacity, the Ledger Nano X provides an enhanced user experience while delivering the mobility and state-of-the-art security that customers expect from Ledger. It is exciting to be recognized by CES as the go-to leader for securing crypto assets.”

The Nano X leads the market in supporting over 1,100 cryptocurrencies and will enable users send and receive cryptocurrency payments from anywhere. Its security feature isolates private keys from the owner’s computer or smartphone to prevent compromise, protecting these keys in a hardware wallet instead of an exchange or in the cloud.

“As global data-ization continues to change people’s lives, users are looking for trusted partners to protect their critical digital assets,” Ledger President Pascal Gauthier said. “At Ledger, we offer customers a way to secure these assets, through our state-of-the-art technology. With the Ledger Nano X, we are delivering increased security, along with improved access through the new Ledger Live mobile app.”
