Ledger has announced the launch of a limited edition hardware wallet, the Ledger Nano S Plus. The collection features only 10,000 units which will be available for pre-order at a price of $79.
Ledger also announced global cooperation with the Ethereum-based Proof of Attendance Protocol, or POAP, in addition to the event.
POAPs are also known as digital memories of nonfungible tokens, or NFTs because they provide proof of involvement and attendance for other users on important occasions.
The need of creating NFTs soulbound to enable evidence of achievement was noted by Ethereum co-founder Vitalik Buterin in January.
“Securing and protecting your digital memories, like as the POAP you may collect with your Ledger Nano S Plus, is essential for anyone developing a lifelong collection,” stated Lucas Verra, CEO of POAP.
A special engraving will be included in the Genesis Edition of the Ledger Nano S Plus. A card redeemable for a Genesis POAP NFT will be included with each shipment, allowing users to carry proof of this exclusive hardware wallet in their digital wallets as well.
POAP will also be producing limited-edition NFTs for future Ledger events. Ledger’s chief experience officer, Ian Rogers, had the following to say about the development:
“This partnership with POAP and launch of the Ledger Nano S Plus Genesis Edition at an affordable price marks the acknowledgment that digital assets will only increase as a tool for life experiences, and we want to bring millions more into Web3 securely; as it happens.”
The Ledger Nano S Plus is the company’s first hardware wallet after the launch of the Ledger Nano X in 2019. According to the company, approximately 4.5 million Ledger Nano hardware wallets have been sold, with Ledger devices protecting nearly 20% of the world’s digital assets. The Nano S Plus accepts a wide range of digital assets, including over 5,500 coins and tokens as well as NFTs.
