Let’s take back control – for real this time!

The long-discussed Brexit story is finally coming to a close today, the 31st of January, with the United Kingdom proceeding to leave the European Union. Boris Johnson, the British Prime Minister, has always expressed that the UK should “take back control”. During his campaign, he highlighted the financial sovereignty of the country and needing to limit its borders.

At Ledger, we believe that taking back control means so much more.

take back control power of crypto

Each individual can be empowered with complete financial freedom, where borders are bridged and you are fully in charge of your own funds in a network that everyone can join.

We believe in the power of crypto.


The power of crypto includes a truly borderless network. Whether you are in the United Kingdom, in the United States or in Japan, you can access your cryptocurrencies. Crypto helps bring the world closer together, giving you the choice to transact with anyone in any country rapidly. For crypto, national or international interactions are all the same. 

Open and Inclusive

The power of crypto comes from the power of the people. Often referred to as “the money of the people”, crypto has been created by individuals rather than governments – and is maintained by an incredibly large collective, all coming together as one to give their network its stability and power. 

Crypto is open and honest. You can see every transaction that was ever made due to its public nature. You can verify everything rather than requiring trust. Most importantly: crypto is for everyone. It treats everyone as equals, no matter your background. Anyone can join.

True Ownership

The power of crypto allows you to truly own your funds. You are the one in charge. No bank or institution holds your money and decides when you can access it – with cryptocurrencies, you have complete freedom to choose what you want to do with your assets. You are the sole owner of your funds.

Ledger and Crypto

Ledger’s mission is to provide top notch security for your critical digital assets. We empower you with the freedom, openness and control that crypto provides, combining it with cutting-edge security. During this symbolic day, we encourage you to really take back control.

You can have more power than you think. You can have the power of crypto.
