What customers say about "Key Specs"
Ledger Blue Hardware wallet for Bitcoin
  • Awesome product love it can’t live without it this is a must have for anyone considering holding crypto currency.
  • Excellent wallet. Works perfectly for me LOL. Other reviewers clearly have no patience with the blockchain takes a little patience but the apps work if you are willing to learn it. It’s not a piggy bank just add coins LOL. Love
Ledger Nano S Cryptocurrency Hardware Wallet
  • Support for multiple alt-coins (including XMR, XLM and tokens like OMG etc)
  • The Nano S is (in my opinion) the best hardware wallet on the market today. If you are familiar with security technology, this is very similar to having an HSM in your pocket.
  • The latest firmware as of today allows usage of Bitcoin, Litecoin and Ethereum (including tokens).
  • It also integrates with the Mycelium wallet for Bitcoin which eliminates the need to carry bitcoin keys on your phone when you want to buy items or trade bitcoin in person.
  • There is a limit to the variety of currencies you can have on the wallet though. I believe it’s 3. So this may not be for you if you are planning on storing a wide variety of coins/tokens.
  • Surprising this expensive device does not allow you to store more than 5 of it's supported crypto currencies. If you want to use fido u2f then you can only use it with 4 currencies.

What customers say about "Features"
Ledger Blue Hardware wallet for Bitcoin
  • Some people have been scammed because their hardware wallet came with the PIN and/or seed keys included in the package. YOU CREATE BOTH THE SEED KEYS AND PIN!
  • However I will say that the screen is a little old-school kind of reminds me of the first generation iPod touch not high-resolution at all probably could live without the screen.
  • Easier to navigate compared to the Ledger Nano S. I have both and this one keeps more variety of coin, because of the ease of use.
  • Looks like an mp3 player from 2001. Horrible customer support. If you need something from them, just forget it. Only supports Chrome.
  • Battery doesn't stay charged above 75%. I have tried contacting ledger wallet but got no response.
Ledger Nano S Cryptocurrency Hardware Wallet
  • This is a really nice crypto wallet that is very easy to use. The ledger team are constantly supporting new currencies and there are a lot of good resources for crypto beginners on this wallet.
  • I was pleasantly surprised to find that the "Ledger Manager" Chrome app now supports many more currencies/apps including Bitcoin, Bitcoin Cash, Bitcoin Gold, Bitcoin Private, Digibyte, HCash, Qtum, PIVX, Stealthcoin, Vertcoin, Viacoin, Ubiq, Expanse, Dash, Dogecoin, Ethereum, Fido U2F, Litecoin,etc
  • A very nice hardware wallet for anyone who is starting to invest more into crypto currencies. I definitely recommend this to anyone who is wanting to make the plunge deeper into crypto.
  • Bought this wallet to hold other currencies that other wallets do not hold; holding 3 different types of currencies on this ledger as of now. The setup process was a breeze, took about 20 minutes, the security feels pretty secure to gain access.
  • Setup leaves a bit to be desired. Writing a recovery key on a piece of a paper feels tacky.
  • Previously this was not advertised but now you can see it on their website how-to sections: you can't have more than 4-5 crypto apps installed at one time. What is this?
  • The app structure is a little confusing at first, the ledger bitcoin app can also do bitcoin cash and litecoin. However there is an official bitcoin cash app now.
