How to use NEO with Ledger

What is NEO?

NEO is an open-source blockchain platform that aims to create a smart economy by incorporating digital assets, smart contracts, and decentralized applications. It is often referred to as the "Ethereum of China" due to its with its popularity in China and similarities with the Ethereum network. Neo differentiates itself from other blockchain platforms by adding features such as quantum computing resistance and inter-chain operability.

NEO is the native cryptocurrency of the Neo blockchain and plays a critical role in its functioning. It is used for staking, spending on the network, and giving voting rights to those who hold it. In addition to NEO, the GAS token is also used to pay for computation on the network. Those who stake NEO also receive a portion of the block rewards paid in GAS tokens. Both NEO and GAS have a limited supply of 100 million tokens each. The smallest unit of NEO is 1 and cannot be divided further, while the smallest unit of GAS is 0.00000001.

The Neo platform focuses on asset digitization and digital identity, allowing for the creation of electronic identity data for individuals, organizations, and entities. It uses multi-layered authentication models, including facial and voice recognition and fingerprints, to create a secure digital identity system. The platform also offers legal protection for all digital assets through the use of digital certificates on its public blockchain.

In addition to its core features, Neo also offers decentralized file storage, an identity service, and an oracle system for accessing accurate off-chain information.

Frequently Asked Questions

When you first buy crypto, 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 crypto 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 cryptocurrency 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 coins.
