On Monday, July 9, the release of new software for hardware bitcoin wallets Ledger Nano S and Ledger Blue under the name Ledger Live with support for Windows, Mac and Linux operating systems.

According to the developers, Ledger Live is a complex application that combines the functions of managing a hardware device and digital assets. The new software has replaced many browser extensions based on Chromium.

Installing a new device and connecting an existing account to Ledger Live takes place as quickly as possible. Simultaneously, all crypto-currencies are now available in one account, which eliminates the need for users to use different applications for Bitcoin, Ethereum or Ripple.

It is noteworthy that the user interface provides data on the cost of all crypto assets in real time, and also displays the status of transactions.

The first version of Ledger Live does not support ERC-20 tokens, but the developers have already promised to add this option in the next releases.
