Hardware wallet company Ledger announced Tuesday that it will be launching a limited edition all-new Ledger Nano S Plus hardware wallet, with only 10,000 units available for pre-order, priced at $79 each. In addition to the event, Ledger announced a global partnership with the Ethereum-based Proof of Presence Protocol, or POAP.

POAPs are called “digital non-fouling memories” or NFTs because they signify commitment and presence at important moments. In January, Vitalik Buterin, co-founder of Ethereum, highlighted the potential importance of connecting NFTs to the ethos to provide evidence of achievement.

“Protecting and protecting your digital memories, like the POAP you can collect with the Ledger Nano S Plus, is a must for anyone building their collection for life,” said Lucas Vera, CEO of POAP. The Genesis Edition Ledger Nano S Plus will have a special engraving. Each bundle will also include a redeemable Genesis POAP NFT card, so users can also get proof of this exclusive hardware wallet in their digital wallet. In the future, POAP will also create private NFT versions of ledger events. Ian Rogers, Head of Experience at Ledger, commented on the development as follows:

“This partnership with POAP and the affordable launch of the Ledger Nano S Plus Genesis Edition is an acknowledgment that digital assets will only grow as a tool for life experiences, and we want to bring millions of people to Web3 in a secure way when this happens.”
The Ledger Nano S Plus is the first hardware wallet released by Ledger since the Ledger Nano X debuted in 2019. The company says it has sold more than 4.5 million Ledger Nano hardware wallets and nearly 20% of the world’s digital assets that are secured by Ledger devices. Nano S Plus supports all types of digital assets, from over 5,500 coins and tokens to NFTs.
