Quick take:

  • Ledger Stax is credit card-sized with integrated magnets that make it easily stackable.
  • Users can manage their NFT collection and over 500 coins and assets.
  • It will utilise Ledger’s upcoming our upcoming crypto wallet extension, Ledger Connect, to access Web3 apps from anywhere.

Leading crypto hardware and security company Ledger has unveiled its new security hardware device, Ledger Stax, designed by American engineer and iPod builder, Tony Fadell.

The new device has what Ledger calls an E Ink2 display, which covers the front and curves around the spine. It comes with a touch interface and allows users to view complete transaction details at a glance. Users can also view their favourite artwork on the Ledger Stax screen even when the device is off.

Tony Fadell designed Ledger Stax, in collaboration with Layer, as a credit card-sized device with integrated magnets, making them easily stackable for those who own multiple devices. The device can last for weeks or even months on one battery charge. 

Ledger Stax uses secure USB-C to connect to the comprehensive Ledger Live™ app on the desktop, and Bluetooth®3 to connect to the Ledger Live Mobile app on the smartphone. It will utilise Ledger’s upcoming our upcoming crypto wallet extension, Ledger Connect, to access Web3 apps, swaps, staking and on-ramp services. It also supports wireless Qi charging.

“Digging into Ledger’s proven security technology and trying all the ‘best’ hardware wallets out there convinced me to build a next-gen device with Pascal, Ian and the amazing Ledger team,” says Tony Fadell, designer of Ledger Stax and Principal at Build Collective. “We need a user-friendly…no! A ‘user-delightful’ tool, to bring digital asset security to the rest of us, not just the geeks.”

Ledger and Trezor reported an uptick in sales following the collapse of FTX as more crypto users seek self-custody of their assets. Ledger saw its highest sales week in history during the week of the FTX collapse. So far, the company has sold over 6 million hardware wallets in its lifetime. 

The company’s CEO Pascal Gaulthier hopes to leverage Fadell’s experience in building mass-market products to encourage more people to use Ledger’s hardware wallet. 

Ledger Stax allows users to manage their NFT collection and over 500 coins and assets. Every Ledger Stax includes the [ Ledger ] Infinity Pass, a free NFT that comes with future benefits that have yet to be revealed.

A Ledger Stax NFT can be minted for free on [ L ] Market, which will unlock access to an exclusive piece of NFT artwork from Ledger’s network of hand-picked artists, and also redeem a Ledger Stax device. [ L ] Market Genesis Pass holders are given special priority for the mint.

Priced at $279, Ledger Stax will be available by the end of March 2023. It is available for pre-order from today on Ledger.com. In the future, it will also be available from select retailers such as BestBuy in the United States.
