Ledger To Debut Product In Partnership With iPhone Co-Creator

The new Ledger Stax wallet was created in partnership with iPod/iPhone co-creator Tony Fadel and was revealed on Dec. 6.

The new Ledger Stax wallet, created in collaboration with iPod/iPhone co-creator Tony Fadel, was revealed on December 6 by Ledger, the firm behind the Ledger Nano S and Nano X hardware wallets.

The new Ledger wallet takes design cues from Samsung’s high – end smartphones, making it stand out from the crowd. Users can check their NFT balances at any time, even if the wallet isn’t in use.

Ledger claims that its partnership with Tony Fadell, the man widely credited as the brains behind Ledger Stax, was responsible for all of the advancements made to the next-generation wallet.

Customers who are interested in purchasing the wallet before it is on sale can do so by visiting Ledger’s website. You may get a Ledger Stax for $279 once they go on sale at the end of March, 2023. 

Those who buy the wallet have a chance to win prizes including a “Magnet Shell” case and a limited edition NFT from the Art on Ledger Stax collection, both of which were designed by well-known artists in the cryptocurrency space.

This credit-card-sized device can store over 500 coins or NFTs. Ledger Live will soon let users explore Web3 apps thanks to developers. 

The shape of its E-Ink touchscreen makes it easier for inexperienced crypto users to view transactions and NFT collections. 

Additionally, the Stax’s battery will last weeks or months on a single charge. The monochromatic (black-and-white) screen doesn’t require much battery.

Director of Build Collective and Stax creator Tony Fadell commented:

“Digging into Ledger’s proven security technology and trying all the ‘best’ hardware wallets out there convinced me to build a next-gen device with Pascal, Ian and the amazing Ledger team, […] We need a user-friendly…no! A ‘user-delightful’ tool, to bring digital asset security to the rest of us, not just the geeks.”
