French cryptocurrency hardware wallet has entered a partnership with The Sandbox to bring crypto security and promote crypto education to users on the metaverse platform.
According to Cointelegraph, Ledger’s chief experience office Ian Rogers announced the partnership during his keynote today at the Non-Fungible Conference (NFC) held in Lisbon, Portugal.
In this partnership, Ledger aims to bring crypto security to The Sandbox as well as secure a place on the platform where they can educate users about crypto. Rogers said that Ledger will provide users of The Sandbox with custom Ledger Nanos.
Speaking to Cointelegraph, who was present at the NFC, Rogers said that crypto security education is the most important part of this partnership.
“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 kind of rights and freedoms that they have of self custody,” Rogers told Cointelegraph. “Self-custody really gives you personal freedom but it’s also responsibility. You have to take it super seriously so you keep that right and don’t lose it.”
Ledger announced the partnership on Twitter, saying that more information is coming soon.

Ledger is the provider of one of the most widely used crypto hardware wallets. The hardware wallet is essentially a USB device that allow users to secure crypto assets with private keys and buy cryptocurrencies through its proprietary Ledger Live app.
Last month, Ledger introduced the Ledger Nano S Plus Genesis Edition, the company’s first new device in two years. Limited to 10,000 units, it is a new hardware wallet that safeguards both cryptos and NFTs, and has sold out.
There will also be the Ledger Nano S Plus coming soon for the mass market. It does not have a release date yet, but is expected to be available for purchase this year.
