Ledger Nano X Review 2019

(1 vote, rate product)

The hardware wallet Ledger Nano X is the latest hardware wallet from Ledger. It was officially announced in early 2019 and can already be pre-ordered for a price of 119,00 € (click here to check the current price). Compared to its forerunner model Nano S, this now has bluetooth and a built-in battery for mobile use via smartphone. There is also more space for apps.

A review will be published here soon. To avoid missing it, you can subscribe to the newsletter here:

State-of-the-art security

Ledger Nano X Banner

Like Ledger’s other hardware wallets, the Ledger Nano X offers state-of-the-art security: the private keys are securely isolated inside the device’s certified security element (CC EAL5+), the same chip used in high-security applications such as credit cards and passports.

The bluetooth connection is only used as a transport layer for public information and therefore does not represent a point of attack. The secret keys or seed never leave the secure element. Even if the bluetooth connection is hacked, the security of the Ledger Nano X relies on the secure element, which will seek approval for any action.

Use Ledger Nano X on the go

The Ledger Nano X is bluetooth-capable and mobile thanks to the built-in battery. The hardware wallet is connected to the smartphone and then managed through the Ledger Live mobile app. With the app, it will be possible to display the real-time balance of all the crypto assets, no matter where you are, either with a computer or smartphone (via bluetooth), even if the device is not connected right now.

Ledger X Product Mobility

The app also has a simple, step-by-step process that helps you easily manage transactions while keeping an eye on the cryptocurrencies at all times.

Easy Backup of the Hardware Wallet

As you’re used to, the Ledger Nano X is also protected by a 24-word recovery phrase. This means that the crypto assets remain safe even if you lose the device. To do this, you simply use the backup created during the device’s initialization to restore the accounts on any ledger device.

Support for various Cryptocurrencies and Tools

The Ledger Nano X can store up to 100 applications at a time, including Bitcoin, Ethereum, XRP and many more. That’s another advance from the Ledger Nano S model. As a result, it is possible to manage all assets on the same device and at the same time, the storage will no longer run out. All supported cryptocurrencies can be found here: Ledger Nano X cryptocurrencies.

The Ledger Nano X was designed as intuitively as possible again: 2 buttons, 1 screen, which is all you need to control the device. Transactions are made from a smartphone or computer with the already well-known Ledger Live PC application and also via new mobile apps.

Worst Experience so far. I purchased the Ledger Nano X. The instructions are 3.
1. Rotate the swivel cover.
2. Press the button for 3 seconds to power on
3. download app.

It doesn’t tell you how to power down or anything else. It is sad that I have to google how to turn off my ledger nano x. I tried holding that button down for 3 seconds to power off….but it didn’t. Hmm

It says it supports 1185 Crypto Assets but you can only have 100 on your ledger nano x. Problem is you need to have the apps downloaded. I did that for the Crypto I have.

Next you need to Add the Accounts on to your Ledger Nano X. On their support site, it says to use Live. Live only supports 23 Cryto Assets. Umm, please explain the Math here. How can you have 100 different Crypto Assets supported on your Ledger Nano if you can only make Accounts for 23 of them through LIve?

The other problem is that their instructions for receiving crypto include you using LIVE. Hmmm. That really doesn’t make sense….does it?

So far…not so good. Their Support does not have any Phone Number. They do not work weekends. So you have specific hours MON-Fri. Good luck with this information however you take it. I have personally found that when businesses forget to look through the eyes of the consumers, they are missing out and will lose to their competitors. I heard such great things about their product, but as a regular consumer coming into the world of Crypto, this has to be the worst experience and hair pulling stress I have received from a HUGE Lack of Planned Instructions.

I will not buy from them again. If it takes this much effort to use their product, then this is a good way to lose customers.

Good Luck!

I need Cardano to purchase ledger nano X. Just for you information Cardano community is huge and demanding. Hope ledger is not going to miss out on that! Support it soon!

I’m anxiously looking forward to receiving my new Nano X that I have pre-ordered. Will is support Cardano in the future? I didn’t see it on the list.

Hello Jon,

the last firmware update 1.5 enables the future support of Cardano and new Tezos derivation paths because Bip32-ed25519 has been added.
Now you have to be patient until Ledger or the community develops an app for Cordano, the requirements are now given.

Support for alt coins in Ledger live is very limited now. Will the ledger live mobile expand its support for alt coins?

Hi,

Will they add additional coins to their existing list? Because I don’t see Cardano, Stellar etc… Are they supporting these coins now?

Will there be any added security risk with Bluetooth capabilities?

Malte
7. January 2019

Bluetooth is just a media. The BLE stack is handled by a non secure chip and the user still has to confirm all operations which is handled by the Secure Element.

So no, adding bluetooth doesn’t make this device any less secure. As always you have to verify your operation via the device screen and buttons, no matter which connection or service you use.

Nice clickbait.

“nOt WhAt i ExPeCtEd”

And then the “review” is a rundown of its technical specifications. If this isn’t an opinion piece why did you title it like one?

Hi,
as you can read above we will publish our review here on this page as soon as we get a device.
We are experimenting with different meta titles and descriptions so this is why you get this title for the hardware wallets landing pages.
Thanks for your feedback!
