How to use Tezos with Ledger

What is Tezos?

Tezos is a blockchain platform created by a former Morgan Stanley analyst, Arthur Breitman. It is a smart contract platform that does not involve mining. Tezos promotes self-amendment and on-chain governance, and is similar to Ethereum. The community can vote to improve the platform, and token holders can delegate their voting rights to others. The platform uses a generic network shell that allows for different transaction and consensus protocols. The code is written in OCaml, a fast and functional programming language. Tezos uses a proof-of-stake consensus algorithm called "liquid proof-of-stake," which aims to balance security and decentralization. The process of staking in Tezos is called "baking." Bakers who make deposits will be rewarded for signing and publishing blocks, but may forfeit their deposits if they engage in bad behavior. The annualized yield for stakers is approximately 5.8% as of May 2021. The Tezos foundation raised $232 million in an initial coin offering in 2017, and the mainnet was successfully launched in 2018 after a delay due to corporate governance disputes. The founders have warned that the network is using new technology, so unexpected issues may still occur.

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 cold 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 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 cold wallets keep your keys secure and give you complete control over your cryptos.
