Safely securing cryptocurrencies have always been an essential step, especially for investors who have large holdings. Of the many hardware wallets that have been making it to the market, that of the Ledger has been preferred by many. In particular, their operating system called BOLOS is what has set them apart – largely known as the technology only they were successful in providing. To date, Ledger has been available across 165 countries, with as much as one million wallets sold!
