Buying crypto does not necessarily mean owning it. When you own crypto, what counts is the key that gives access to your coins: your private key. The person that has access to this key really owns the associated coins and can do whatever they want with them. When buying then leaving your coins on an exchange, the exchange actually owns your private keys, and therefore, your assets. Not you. Much like a bank holding your money.


At Ledger we created a solution that enables you to secure and own this private key throughout your crypto journey – and to become the only person in charge of your coins.
