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.
