ARK is proud to announce our partnership with Ledger Hardware Wallet. ARK/Ledger integration has been in the works for a while now and we are very excited to finally release it.
ARK integration into the Ledger Hardware Wallet makes ARK the tenth cryptocurrency to be secured by this amazing piece of hardware. Ledger provides additional security measures and the ability for you to store your ARK safely, with peace of mind along with other major cryptocurrencies supported by Ledger.ARK and Ledger are making two firsts with this addition
But there is more: ARK-desktop and upcoming ARK-mobile wallets will be compatible with Ledger wallet, and BIP32/BIP44 compliant. This means you will be able to generate HD wallets with extra security without having any single passphrase getting out of the Ledger device. This also means you can create an ARK address directly from your Ledger device. Once we have full compatibility with the Ledger Hardware wallets, we will also provide Ledger Hardware wallet support to our Desktop and Mobile wallets that will require the use of the Ledger to sign transactions if the ledger account is synced to the Ark wallets.
But there is even more: Any future ARK cloned network, ARK fork, or ARK test-net/dev-net will be compatible with the ledger in the near future. Making every ARK cloned chain Ledger compatible.
The scheduled release date is July 28th, 2017. ARK will be available on Ledger Nano S and Ledger Blue.What is a Ledger?
