Ledger Wallet Reveals New System of Adding Cryptos, Supports 8 New Digital Assets

The crypto company said that would back new virtual currency projects every month with the August list including Particl, Ontology, VeChain, ICON, POA Network, Icon, Wanchain, Kowala, and RSK.

Ledger, one of the leading software developers of cryptocurrency wallets, announced on Tuesday a new system of adding digital assets to its ecosystem, aiming to expand its customer base. The French company also said that would reveal new crypto projects every first Tuesday of the month in a bid to be more transparent.

The August list includes eight crypto assets: Particl (PART), Ontology (ONT), VeChain (VET), ICON (ICX), POA Network (POA), Wanchain (WAN), Kowala (kUSD), and RSK.

“PART will now be available for cold storage on Nano S hardware wallets with cold staking capabilities enabled. This release [means that ] pure PoS coins stored on a hardware device can be safely staked without any intermediary nor internet connection required,” Particl explained in its own statement.

The eight new cryptos are available on Ledger Live, a recently introduced desktop application that allows managing various virtual assets without using browsers or browser applications.

Ledger provided a link to its working roadmap on Trello where everybody can see which new coins the French company plans to adds, to vote for them, or give feedback about these crypto assets. At the time of publishing, Ledger Trello List consists of 27 virtual currency assets that are scheduled for backing in the upcoming months. Some of the major projects are EOS (EOS), Tezos (XTZ), Cardano (ADA), IOTA (MIOTA), Decred (DCR), Nebulas (NAS) Lisk (LSK), ZClassic (ZCL), MonaCoin (MONA), Waves (WAVES), and Syscoin (SYS).

“The validation process for third-party apps will be simplified with clearer guidelines, giving developers more comprehensive guidance on security good practice, device applications interface, experience and design requirements,” Ledger explained.

Last week, the Paris-based company experienced glitches in Ethereum Chrome app when Ledger urged clients to use Ledger Live instead of the Chrome extension.
