Ledger is modernising its offers – Ledger is modernising and announces the arrival of new services for its customers. On the program: a bank card which would allow to spend cryptomonnages in physical shop. ETH2’s staking should Bitcoin Rush also be available soon.
Ledger and its debit card 2.0
First announcement, and not the least: the upcoming launch of a debit card to make purchases in cryptomonnages in physical shops. Pascal Gauthier, CEO of Ledger, made this announcement through a video, whose objective was to review the strong points of the firm. In addition to this new CB, Ledger also discussed the staking of ETH2.
Unfortunately, Ledger did not give more information about the deployment of its new bank card. Will there be a cash back on purchases? What about conversion and transaction fees?
Faced with offers from competitors, such as Coinbase and Crypto.com, Ledger will have to be competitive in order to have a leading position in this market.
ETH 2.0 and modernisation plan
On November 18th, the French company published on its blog a new version of the Ledger native Ethereum application. Owners of the Ledger Nano X can now update their wallet. For those who own the Ledger Nano S, an update will be available later, during 2021.
The new version 1.2.4-5 of the Nano X includes the EIP 2333, which is now officially supported. This is a crucial element to support the transition to Ethereum 2.0.
To accompany these changes, Ledger has announced the recruitment of Ian Rogers, a well-known figure in the digital world, as Chief Experience Officer (CXO).
With this announcement, Ledger aims to diversify its activities and conquer new markets. Today, it is no longer a question of securing only cryptomoney. The introduction of debit cards (and eventually staking for ETH 2.0) represents a real innovation for the French company.
