The owner of a Ledger Hardware wallet can look forward to several new Updates. The French manufacturer of the Ledger Nano S and Nano-Blue will release in the second quarter of 2018, a new Desktop Version, and in the third quarter for the first time a mobile Version. In the long term, the Ledger device to support over 100 different crypto-currencies.

In a Blog Post yesterday reported that the CEO of Ledger, Eric Larcheveque, that the company is planning major Changes for its Hardware Wallets, and in some cases already in the second quarter of this year.

One of the few points of criticism to the Ledger wallet was, in our opinion, so far, the user was forced to use the Google Chrome Browser. So far, this was absolutely necessary in order for the Ledger Chrome-used Apps, and the private crypto-currencies could be managed via the Hardware Wallets.

Three years after the launch of Chrome Apps, this should be replaced. The company has developed native applications for Desktop and mobile devices that make the Chrome Browser is superfluous. The new App will be on Windows, Mac OS, Linux, Android, iOS available.

In the new App, all the currencies are to be combined in a single App. In the Desktop Version, the 2. Quarter of this year, to be published, are planned, inter alia, the following new functions and Features:

  • Native Desktop application for Windows, macOS and Linux
  • an application for all currencies
  • compatible for Ledger Nano S, Ledger Blue
  • Dashboard view of all the crypto-currencies and their value
  • Selecting the currency, be Send and Received from an application
  • an application for account balance and history
  • faster account sync

A mobile Version for Smartphones for the third quarter of 2018 in planning and development. The Roadmap also provides for the following future Features:

  • an easier, automatic Installation/ Uninstallation of Apps on the Ledger Nano S to manage an unlimited number of Kryptos on a device running smoothly
  • Support for more than 100 crypto-currencies
  • Integration of ERC20 Tokens & contract management (purchase / sale of crypto-currencies, exchanges, Swaps)

In addition, the Ledger is working on a new Version of the Ledger Manager. This should be upgraded to a web-based solution, which makes the Install of the extension is redundant and the user-friendliness significantly.
