Ledger has never been so profitable, recognized one of its spokespersons in Paris, Tuesday, December 6, 2022. On stage at the Gaîté Lyrique, the French unicorn unveiled its new jewel: a wallet to store its crypto-currencies equipped with a touch screen. The latter marries the face as well as the edge of the device. The design goes to the creator of the iPod, former Apple designer Tony Fadell. The resemblance to a high-end smartphone is very strong.

At a time when thousands of investors seek to protect their cryptos on cold wallets, Ledger is jubilant. The golden age of cold wallets has arrived. Crypto wallet sales quadrupled in November. With Ledger Stax of its name, it is now time to welcome the general public with a device with a simpler and sexier user experience. Until now, Ledger keys took the form of a USB key, with a very small screen. Most of the control was through the app.

The Ledger Nano S Plus and X keys are still available (5 million copies sold), but now the Ledger Stax will be the new flagship. It costs 280 euros, far from the respective 79 and 149 euros of the other two keys. As with the rest of the range, the Ledger Stax is compatible with 500 different tokens and can also store NFTs. In case of loss of the product, it is always possible to recover its assets by using another product. The only condition is to have your recovery phrase on hand.

Ledger had the intelligence to choose an E-Ink screen technology, the same used by e-readers, in order to control the autonomy of the product and lower its costs. A way also to offer an even more interesting design, with a curved edge where we find on the edge the name of the wallet, the remaining autonomy and a small locking indicator. It is therefore not possible to display elements in color, but 16 shades of gray are available.

On the bottom edge, a USB-C port allows you to recharge the crypto wallet and connect it. Users can also charge it wirelessly. In terms of dimension, the terminal is 85mm long, 54mm wide and 6mm thick. Its weight is 45.2 grams.

The availability of the Ledger Stax is as follows: its pre-orders have just opened and the first deliveries are scheduled for the end of March 2023. In the United States, the device will be offered in Best Buy stores, enough to promise it large volumes… and big margins in view of its price.
