Ledger Stax the latest addition to the Ledger family. I’ve always wondered why other hardware wallet manufacturers used touch screens to validate transactions with QR codes, view NFTs, etc. and Ledger the market leading manufacturer doesn’t go the same way…now I have the answer.
It was too trivial to enlarge the screen and Ledger, as he has accustomed us, always wants to be at the frontier in terms of safety and usability. With the help of Tony Fadell (the designer of the Ipod) he has launched a small jewel of design and safety onto the market, equipped with the first curved e-ink display in the world, an aluminum body, magnets to keep various wallets together and the induction wireless Qi fast charging.
Speaking of the most important technical aspects in my opinion, certainly the presence of the ST33K1M5 Secure Element (CC EAL5+ certified), Bluetooth 5.2 to connect it to the smartphone, the USB-C connector and the 200 mah lithium battery which thanks to the e-ink screen brings the stand-by duration to a few months are certainly its strengths that place it in competition with Ellipal Titan and Ngrave Zero.
Another aspect not to be overlooked is the Ledger Live software and the Bolos firmware which in my opinion are a great strength because they optimize the daily use experience to the maximum, making it possible to validate transactions with over 500 crypto and tokens natively and over 5000 assets with third-party software wallets.
