Ledger Partners with POAP to Release a Limited Edition NFT-focused Hardware Wallet
The "Genesis Edition" will be available for pre-order in a limited quantity of 10,000 units.
On Tuesday, Ledger announced the launching of a limited edition of their brand new hardware wallet, the Ledger Nano S Plus, with only 10,000 units available for pre-order for $79 apiece. Ledger also announced a global cooperation with the Ethereum-based Proof of Attendance Protocol, POAP, in addition to the event.
POAPs are known as digital memories of non-fungible tokens, or NFTs, because they demonstrate proof of engagement and attendance at key moments. Vitalik Buterin, co-founder of Ethereum, highlighted the potential importance of making NFTs soulbound to enable proof of achievement in January.
"Securing and protecting your digital memories, like the POAP you can collect with your Ledger Nano S Plus, is a must for anyone building their lifelong collection," said Lucas Verra, CEO of POAP.
The Ledger Nano S Plus Genesis Edition will include a special engraving, where each package will include a card redeemable for a Genesis POAP NFT, allowing users to carry proof of this exclusive hardware wallet in their digital wallets. POAP will also be minting limited edition NFTs for future Ledger events.
Ledger's chief experience officer, Ian Rogers, made the following comments about the development:
"This partnership with POAP and launch of the Ledger Nano S Plus Genesis Edition at an affordable price marks the acknowledgment that digital assets will only increase as a tool for life experiences, and we want to bring millions more into Web3 securely; as it happens."$
The Ledger Nano S Plus is the company's first hardware wallet since the Ledger Nano X debuted in 2019. According to the company, it has sold over 4.5 million Ledger Nano hardware wallets and that Ledger devices secure nearly 20% of the world's digital assets. The Nano S Plus accepts all types of digital assets, including over 5,500 coins and tokens and NFTs.
