About Ledger

Since 2014, we have sold more than 4 million hardware devices in 160 countries. Our hardware devices keep your private keys offline, and hence secure your digital assets. We have been known over these past seven years as your trusted, connected safe.

And with the growth of services within Ledger Live, we are gradually becoming the most secure platform for anyone to experience Web3.

Ledger is one of the market leaders for hardware wallets. You can buy, exchange and grow/stake your crypto securely with a Ledger hardware wallet, combined with the Ledger Live app.
