According to a report by Cointelegraph, Ian Rogers, Ledger’s chief experience officer, first announced the partnership at the Non-Fungible Conference last Monday (April 4). Rogers said the partnership aimed to bring greater security to The Sandbox and educate its users on crypto.
As part of the partnership, Rogers says the company will be offering $SAND owners custom Ledger Nano hardware wallets.
Rodgers told Cointelegraph that the goal of the partnership was to increase education on crypto security:
The reality is that educated people become Ledger customers, and so we just want to make sure that all people have all the education they need to be safe and to properly manage this incredible right and freedom that they have of self-custody.
Rogers continued, saying self-custody offered users personal freedom, albeit at the cost of greater responsibility. He cautioned that users needed to take their security “super seriously,” in order to remain in control of their digital assets.
A Ledger spokesperson indicated that the hardware producer has plans to announce more details on the partnership at a later date.
Ledger has been working to expand its crypto offerings, including announcing in March the launch of Ledger Nano S Plus, a new hardware wallet focused on supporting NFTs.
