Radar Relay is a relayer that uses the 0x protocol to host an off-chain order book of individually signed orders, while not being an exchange, as relayers display and manage orders but do not hold assets or execute trades themselves.

On January 18 Radar Relay announced that in addition to supporting MetaMask, it added support for Ledger hardware wallets stating that Ledger is a secure, trusted, and widely available hardware wallet on the market.
