The development of software supporting IOTA on the Ledger Nano S hardware wallet has progressed very far. The integration of IOTA is to be realized via the IOTA Trinity Wallet and not via the GUI Light Wallet. The user downloads the Trinity software and can use the IOTA Trinity Wallet at will. Once the IOTA hardwallet is connected to the PC, the hardware wallet asks if the user wants to use the Trinity Wallet or Ledger.
We will be looking at Ledger Nano integration over the next weeks. Please react with [smiley] if you either have a Ledger or will be able to purchase one to get involved with alpha testing.

About the Ledger Nano S
The Ledger Nano S protects your crypto assets with the most popular multicurrency hardware wallet in the market. The Nano S is built around a secure chip, ensuring optimal security. Your private key giving access to your coins is never exposed. It is protected within a secure chip locked by a PIN code, the same type of chip used for passports and credit cards.
The Ledger Nano S supports over 30 cryptocurrencies, allowing you to manage multiple assets with the same hardware wallet. The device is controlled by only 2 buttons, and all actions can be verified on its screen. And the Ledger Live companion app enables you to easily manage your crypto transactions. Your crypto assets stay safe even if you lose your Ledger Nano S: a confidential recovery phrase backs up your device, and your accounts can easily be restored on any Ledger device.
