Partnership reflects Blockchain and Ledger’s commitment to providing the highest level of crypto security
Today, Blockchain, the leading software provider for cryptocurrency, announced a groundbreaking partnership with Ledger, the leading developer of hardware wallets for crypto assets. Together, the companies have developed a custom hardware device, the Blockchain Lockbox, which is exclusively compatible with the Blockchain Wallet. Leveraging the strengths of these two industry powerhouses, the Blockchain Lockbox will allow Blockchain users to seamlessly and securely store crypto assets offline through a first-of-its kind integration of cryptocurrency hardware and software.
As individuals look to diversify how they manage their crypto assets, using a hardware wallet is a convenient alternative that allows them to store their crypto offline. The Lockbox offers Blockchain’s nearly 30 million users a tailored end-to-end solution that harnesses Blockchain’s innovative non-custodial software along with Ledger’s expertise in hardware security.
“The Lockbox is a reflection of what our companies both do best. We’ve created an elegant software and hardware integration that offers more functionality than previously existed in our space. We’re thrilled to offer the Lockbox to Blockchain users so they can easily manage their funds online and offline seamlessly,” said Peter Smith, CEO and Co-Founder of Blockchain.
“With stories about crypto hacking continuing to dominate headlines, it’s obvious that security must be top of mind for all stakeholders in the crypto space,” said Pascal Gauthier, President of Ledger. “With the combined forces of Blockchain and Ledger, users are truly getting the best of both worlds. Our partnership with Blockchain is the first of its kind, but as two companies hyper-focused on crypto security, it’s one that’s a natural fit.”
The Blockchain Lockbox is available for pre-orders beginning October 25th with deliveries beginning in mid-November. Early customers will receive the special edition blue version of the Lockbox and existing Ledger customers will be able to pair their Nano S devices to the Blockchain Wallet and benefit from the added functionality and ability to trade.
