Zilliqa, Polkadot and Kusama arrive on Ledger

Zilliqa announced on social media the incredible news that it will now be possible to use the famous Ledger Nano X hardware wallet to safely store the ZIL crypto.

The news also comes from the Ledger team that explains how this update not only brings with it the support of this asset, but 5 other cryptocurrencies are also added, available both on the Ledger Nano S and the Ledger Nano X.

To be precise we are talking about:

  • Polkadot (DOT), a project that has recently launched its mainnet;
  • Kusama (KSM), a project linked to Polkadot, which is basically a “canary network”;
  • Solana (SOL), a blockchain that uses PoH (Proof of History) as a consensus protocol;
  • Elastos (ELA), hybrid blockchain using a hash power system similar to Bitcoin but with the addition of DPoS. It is a chain focused on the development of decentralized applications (dApp);
  • IOV, a service linked to Cosmos that is used to buy Starname.

How to use Zilliqa on Ledger

As usual, in order to manage these new crypto assets on Ledger, it is necessary to install the relevant applications on the hardware wallet.

To do so, it is essential to download Ledger Live on the PC, go to the “Manager” menu and confirm access to the Ledger.

At this point locate the crypto or blockchain to add and click on the “Download” button.

Surely this is a very interesting novelty and requested by all those who use these cryptocurrencies. 

By now there are over 1500 tokens supported by Ledger, one of the most famous and used hardware wallet in the world, although only last month a new vulnerability was discovered.

The latest news from Zilliqa

With regard to Zilliqa, the progress of the team that yesterday also announced the launch of Zeeves, a peer-to-peer bot for reward and engagement on Telegram, continues.

Zilliqa recently formed a partnership to bring certificates to this blockchain, and recently its incubator ZILHive also announced support for 8 companies to create solutions on this blockchain. This programme will end in February next year.

All these positive developments seem to be reflected in the price of the ZIL crypto, which is now at position 69 of CoinMarketCap and is trading at around $0.15, an increase of 4%.
