Ledger Stax has a new E Ink2 display, which covers the front and curves around the spine – you can see full transaction details at a glance. E Ink is always visible: your favorite art appears on the Ledger Stax screen, even when it’s off. It also provides unmatched energy efficiency, allowing the battery to last for weeks or months on a single battery charge.
“With the Ledger Nano™ series, we created the most successful digital asset security hardware of all time – with more than 5 million sold and no one ever hacked,” said Pascal Gauthier, CEO and Chairman of Ledger. “Digital assets are increasingly about identity and digital ownership, not just crypto like Bitcoin. The time is now for a device for more mainstream users. At the same time, we must not compromise on security. This is Ledger Stax — secure and accessible. “
Tony Fadell designed the Ledger Stax, in collaboration with Layer, as a credit card-sized device with integrated magnets, making them easily stackable, especially for those who own multiple devices. The curved E Ink spine shows what’s inside, like a book on a shelf. Ledger Stax uses secure USB-C to connect to the comprehensive Ledger Live™ app on your laptop, and Bluetooth®3 to connect to the Ledger Live Mobile app on your smartphone. It will use Ledger Connect, our upcoming crypto wallet extension, to connect to Web3 apps from anywhere. Ledger Stax also supports Qi wireless charging.
“Digging into Ledger’s proven security technology and trying all the ‘best’ hardware wallets out there convinced me to build a next-generation device with Pascal, Ian and the amazing Ledger team,” says Tony Fadell, designer of Ledger Stax and principal at Build Collective. “We need an easy-to-use…no! An ‘easy-to-use’ tool to bring digital asset security to the rest of us, not just the nerds.”
The new user interface enables clear, intuitive interaction. Out of the box, Ledger Stax allows you to manage your NFT collection and over 500 coins and assets. The touch interface empowers Ledger’s exceptional developer community to build innovative Web3 applications that are more accessible, with uncompromising security.
Ledger Stax will be available by the end of March 2023. You can pre-order today at Ledger.com. In the future, it will also be available from selected retailers such as BestBuy in the US.
Every Ledger Stax includes [ Ledger ] Infinity Pass, which provides a free NFT and future benefits. Furthermore, a Ledger Stax NFT is available to put on [ L ] Market to unlock access to an exclusive piece of NFT artwork from Ledger’s network of hand-picked artists, and also redeem a Ledger Stax unit. [ L ] Market Genesis Pass holders have special coin priority for this coin.
“Tony Fadell has both the circuit board and the billboard in mind when he builds a product,” says Ian Rogers, Chief Experience Officer at Ledger. “With Ledger Stax, we’ve created a device that’s cool, beautiful and fun. Together, we’ve fused the uncompromising security and self-storage culture of Ledger, with the equally uncompromising user experience-focused culture of Tony and his team. The result is the first truly secure consumer hardware device for the value revolution brought by blockchain technology.”
