Ledger Hardware Wallets: The smartest way to secure your cryptos
Cryptocurrencies are digital assets based on a decentralized technology called blockchain. They allow you to make transactions without relying on an intermediary such as a bank or payment service provider. To manage your cryptocurrencies, you need a type of wallet called a wallet.
What is a Hardware Wallet?
A hardware wallet is a special type of wallet that stores your private keys in a secure hardware device. The private keys are critical information used to authorize outgoing transactions on the blockchain network. If you lose your private keys or give someone else access to them, you risk losing your cryptocurrencies.
A hardware wallet offers you a high level of security by isolating your private keys from your easily hackable computer or smartphone. You need to connect your hardware wallet to your computer or smartphone to initiate a transaction, but confirmation occurs on the device itself. So you can be sure that your transactions are authentic and unaltered.
