Ledger Stax – A New E-Ink-based Hardware Crypto Wallet


When we are talking about hardware crypto wallets for storing Bitcoin and other popular crypto coins Ledger is usually the name that comes to mind first and their Nano and Nano X wallets are probably the most used solutions for self-custody of crypto nowadays. Well, Ledger just announced a new hardware crypto wallet called Ledger Stax and this one has been designed by Tony Fadell, the designer of the Apple’s iPod. The new device comes with a large curved E-Ink display and a touchscreen and larger smartphone-like design and is indeed quite cool looking in terms of design and Ledger Stax should start shipping end of March 2023 it is already available for pre-order on the official website of Ledger already for $279 USD.

The new Ledger Stax claims support for over 5000 crypto coins as well as NFT support. Compact in size and modern in terms of design and features with USB-C support and Bluetooth along with wireless charging, a visual and easy to use interface to make it even more attractive for the normal user and not only for advanced users. Ledger apparently will try to do with Stax for Crypto what iPod did for Music, and they may be on the right track and that goes not only for employing “the right designer”. Ledger claims to have sold over 5 million Nano and Nano X devices so far and for sure they do hope to sell much more of the new Stax (yes you can stack these wallets indeed apparently) in the coming years with a larger adoption of crypto.
