The investment will allow the company to significantly increase its activities and be able to meet a demand that is increasing at an ever-increasing rate, building the "technological giant in the promising cryptocurrency sector" of the intentions of Eric Larchevêque, CEO of the startup.
The products developed by Ledger allow people to safely store and manage their cryptocurrency portfolios and are supported by a unique technology: an operating system designed to run on any hardware and to support numerous cryptocurrencies. The protocol is applicable to a wide variety of industries, from theInternet of Things to driverless cars, areas where highly sophisticated security-related innovations are the crucial aspect for their ultimate deployment.
Ledger Nano S, the flagship product, is a hardware portfolio based on robust security features for storing cryptographic resources and protecting digital payments. It connects to any computer (USB), incorporates an OLED display and enables any transaction with a simple touch on the side buttons.
Ledger Blue, on the other hand, is a handheld with the most advanced hardware solution in the world, allowing the execution of multiple applications and integrating cryptographic features at enterprise level.
Ledger Vault is the latest product, designed for the B2B market: it allows financial institutions - banks, hedge funds and family offices - to manage their crypto-assets in maximum security.
Simon Cook, CEO of Draper Esprit, the fund that led the operation commented: "Blockchain is a truly revolutionary technology. Security will be critical to its success and we believe Ledger has built the best security platform in the world."
Tim Draper, founder of DFJ and one of the largest owners of Bitcoin: "Ledger has created a better security system than banking and allows you to have full control of your currency. That's why it's important to fund and support their technology globally."
