In April, cryptocurrency hardware wallet provider Ledger shared the news that version 4.0.0 of the Cardano app for Ledger wallets compatible with smart contracts was now available, which was reported by U.Today.
The Cardano community was likewise enthusiastic when Ledger's support team announced that the Ledger Live app was working on adding full support for Cardano at the time. Ledger Live enables users to manage their digital assets from within the security of the Nano Hardware Wallet, thus securing assets within the Ledger Nano X or Nano S Plus.
