Ledger Partners With Figment: Securely Stake Your Coins on Ledger Nodes
Ledger – the world-leading secure platform for the world of digital assets – has partnered with Figment – one of the largest blockchain infrastructure and services providers – to bring a seamless way to secure your favorite Proof-of-Stake network and generate staking APYs on Ledger nodes.
In partnership with Figment, Ledger is entering the world of staking with co-branded nodes for the following protocols available for staking: CELO, AVAX, LUNA, NEAR, MINA, OSMO, ADA and SOL, with many more coins to be added soon. Anyone with a wallet that supports staking can readily delegate their tokens and earn rewards on ‘Ledger by Figment’ nodes.
This staking feature will soon be available on the Ledger Live app, Ledger’s all-in-one Digital Asset Management solution, enabling users to earn staking rewards with security and convenience.
Pascal Gauthier, Chairman & CEO at Ledger, says: “With the Figment partnership, Ledger is entering the world of staking and helping to secure the wider PoS network. Thanks to Figment, Ledger Nano users will be able to directly delegate their assets on the Ledger Live interface and earn yield on their staked digital assets.”
Loriel Gabel, CEO & Co-Founder at Figment, adds: “We are excited to partner with an industry leader like Ledger to generate stable returns for their customers and help fuel innovation and growth across Proof of Stake ecosystems.”

What is “Staking”?
Crypto staking is the easiest way to passively grow your crypto assets. It involves committing your digital assets to support a network and validate transactions.
Instead of obligating blockchain nodes to employ high computing devices, the Proof-of-Stake blockchain protocols require you to stake (delegate) your digital assets and reward you for doing so.
Figment’s mission is to build a better Internet by increasing usage of the next generation of Proof of Stake blockchains. We bring our mission to reality by helping investors stake their tokens; earn yield and participate in securing the blockchain. Our protocol and governance expertise allow token holders to analyze, monitor and make informed decisions, and our application layer helps fuel innovation and growth across the Web3 ecosystem. Figment is trusted by over 100+ institutions, including venture capital firms, asset managers, protocol foundations, family offices and large scale cryptocurrency platforms.
