The well-known manufacturer of hardware cryptowallets Ledger announced a partnership with Intel.

According to the press release, the companies will work on integrating the BOLOS operating system (Blockchain Open Ledger Operating System) used in the Ledger wallets into the Intel product line, where Software Guard Extensions (SGX) technology is used.

We have seen an increasing demand from the market for secure solutions to manage crypto assets over the past couple of years. Following the launch of a line of hardware wallets based on our operating system integrated in a secure chip, working with a leading player like Intel is a unique opportunity to keep providing our growing client base with innovative solutions for cryptocurrency and blockchain applications.

Eric Larchevêque

CEO, Ledger

The new development will be integrated into popular software cryptowallets, including Electrum and MyEtherWallet. The solution from Intel will protect important data from unauthorized use with the so-called SGX-enclaves, which, in particular, will store private keys and sign transactions.

Ledger hardware wallet development company added Tezos cryptocurrency staking support (XTZ) to Ledger Live software.

A new option is available both in the desktop and in the mobile version of the program.

While staking Tezos is currently available on several major exchanges, these exchanges do not provide the same level of security and optionality as Ledger hardware wallets. With today’s announcement, users can now manage and earn XTZ rewards through Ledger Live, while still ensuring top security through their Ledger hardware wallets.

Company representatives added that users can choose validators from a list, for example, offering a higher yield.

Recently, support for Tezos staking with an annual rate of 6-7% was added by the Binance bitcoin exchange.
