Growing Fast

With the new additons available on the new Ledger Live platform, a desktop software program designed to help users manage crypto-assets, these latest additions come at a time when the company is seeing enormous growth.

Launched in 2014 following the enormous Mt. Gox hack, the founders were inspired to offer more secure solutions for crypto holders to store their assets.

Since then, the company has seen sales rocket. Selling over a million hardware wallets in 2017, the firm completed its Series B round funding in January, raising $75 million, and has reportedly been valued at up to $1 billion.

Looking for investment from “industrial partners who will also sign commercial contracts with the crypto start-up,” reports have emerged that the crypto-start-up has attracted interest from some very high-profile players including Samsung, Siemens and Google’s venture arm GV.
