For a cryptocurrency investor, one of the most crucial aspects of the whole process is ensuring the security of the tokens. Hackers can take over your hard-earned funds via various scams, phishing websites, malware, hacking attempts, and other nefarious means. Technicalities to consider while investing in cryptocurrencies will be overwhelming for many as you are responsible for your funds with no banks to ensure protection.
Hardware Wallets are developed to solve such a complication as they provide an extra layer of security when interacting with various cryptocurrency wallets. Ledger Nano S is a type of hardware wallet which helps you protect your crypto assets. It claims to be the most popular multi-currency hardware wallet in the market. The Ledger Nano S is built around a secure chip locked by a PIN code, ensuring optimal security.
