How to use Zilliqa with Ledger

What is Zilliqa?

Zilliqa is a sharding-based blockchain network that enables developers to build user-friendly decentralized applications (dApps) easily. It is a smart contract platform that aims to address the scalability issues that often limit other blockchain networks.

Zilliqa finds itself in a competitive landscape of smart contract blockchain networks with competition from Ethereum, EVM chains, Solana, and others. However, it differentiates itself by addressing the scalability concerns using a sharding technique. With this technique, blockchain transactions are grouped into smaller groups and divided among the miners for the parallel transactional verification. Developing smaller groups for transactional verification means the Consensus can be reached faster and hence a higher number of transactions can be processed in a given time frame. By incorporating the Sharding Technology, it can completely solve the problem of scalability.

To fuel its ecosystem, Zilliqa uses ZIL, the native cryptocurrency of the network, which allows sending of transactions, incentivizing network participants, executing programs, etc. Zilliqa (ZIL) is a token developed in the year 2017.
Thus, ZIL plays an integral role in the functioning of the Zilliqa network and can be used for holding, sending, receiving, and staking. Users can own and stake ZIL tokens to gain voting rights to participate in the network upgrades.

Frequently Asked Questions

When you first buy coin, 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 cryptocurrency wallet to spend, withdraw, or transfer your cryptocurrencies.

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 cold 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 cryptocurrencies.
