How to use BNB with Ledger

What is BNB?

Binance Coin (BNB) is a digital asset used on the Binance ecosystem which includes Binance DEX, a cryptocurrency exchange and Binance Smart Chain, a blockchain to fuel various products and services. BNB was initially introduced as an ERC-20 token in June 2017 and launched through an ICO in July of that year.

Binance is a cryptocurrency trading platform that combines the words "binary" and "finance" in its name to reflect the fact that it allows for the exchange of cryptocurrencies only. It was launched in July 2017 and has rapidly become the largest cryptocurrency exchange in the world in terms of daily trading volume. In addition to being the largest exchange, Binance has also developed a number of other initiatives, including the Binance Chain, Binance Smart Chain, Binance Academy, Trust Wallet, and research projects, all of which utilize blockchain technology to drive innovation in the field of finance.

There is a fixed supply of 200 million BNB, with 50% of these being sold during the ICO, 40% being allocated to the Binance team, and the remaining 10% going to angel investors. BNB can be used to pay fees on the Binance platform, including trading fees, transaction fees, and listing fees. In order to incentivize users to purchase BNB and trade on the Binance platform, Binance has implemented this fee discount structure.

Other cryptocurrency exchanges have also released their own tokens, such as Bibox Token, OKB, and Huobi Token.

Frequently Asked Questions

When you first buy token, you’re issued with two keys: public and private.

  • A public key serves as an address that can be shared with other parties to perform transactions.
  • A private key represents a randomly generated number that signs transactions and protects your assets from malicious attacks. If it gets compromised or lost, you won’t be able to access your hardware wallet to spend, withdraw, or transfer your cryptos.

To safeguard and keep track of your keys, you can use online or offline wallets. Online wallets, also known as hot wallets, store private keys on systems or devices that are connected to the internet. Hot wallets are easy and convenient to use, however, they come with several drawbacks. Besides being susceptible to attacks and a honeypot for hackers, with hot wallets, the custody of private keys is often entrusted to a third party such as a crypto exchange, which means you never have full control over your funds. The safer choice are specialized hardware wallets that store private keys offline. Stealing private keys from a hardware wallet would require physical access to the wallet and corresponding PIN or the recovery phrase. What’s more, with hardware wallet, you don’t need to rely on third party custodians.

Ledger Nano is the industry-leading hardware wallet. With more than five million customers, Ledger Nano wallets have several layers of security that protect private keys, and hence your assets:

  • Your private keys are stored on secure element chips.
  • A PIN code and a 24-word recovery phrase are required to access the wallet.
  • Ledger Nano hardware wallets have been built using highly durable materials for protection against physical damage.

With full isolation between private keys and your computer/mobile, Ledger Nano crypto wallets keep your keys secure and give you complete control over your tokens.
