Why are hardware wallets more secure?
If you are not familiar with the notion of hardware wallets, you may wonder what would be the advantages versus a paper wallet or an encrypted private key on a computer.
The main principle behind hardware wallets is to provide a full isolation between the cryptographic secrets (private keys) and your easy to hack computer or smartphone. Vulnerabilies of modern PCs and smartphones are well known, and if you keep your private keys there (private key = your bitcoins) it’s just a matter of time before you’ll get hacked and lose everything.
Hardware wallets are convenient, affordabe, portable and backuped by a paper wallet allowing an easy recovery in case of loss. If you have any significant amount of bitcoins, using a hardware wallet should be a no brainer.
Do I need to open an account with you or pay any subscription?
No. There is no subscription plan or account to be created.
What do I need to use Ledger's hardware wallets?
- A computer with an USB port (for Nano S, Nano, HW1)
- Google Chrome or Chromium 50+
- Windows (not XP), Mac (10.7+) or Linux.
The wallet interfaces with the computer through a Chrome application which you will need to install on your computer. No additional software installation or account creation is needed.
What are the differences with software wallets?
The difference, apart from interfaces and functionalities, is that even if your private keys may be stored encrypted on your computer (or cloud service), they must be available in plain text in your computer memory whenever you sign transactions. When your computer is compromised by specialized Bitcoin-targetting malware (and it is just a matter of time), it will be extremely easy for the malware to steal your bitcoins.
I like my Nano. The set up experience was cool and interacting with the device is easy enough. You really just need to unlock it and activate the desired app before finishing on the pc, anyway. It's VERY well made and the fit and finish is perfection.
Awesome product, it offers great security for your crypto currencies. It has an excellent design, too.
