The features of Stax:

  • uncompromisingly secure architecture
  • a unique form designed for unprecedented accessibility and interactivity
  • a credit card-sized device with integrated magnets, making them easily stackable
  • a new E Ink2 display, which covers the front and curves around the spine
  • unmatched energy efficiency, so the battery can last for weeks or even months on one battery charge
  • secure USB-C to connect to the comprehensive Ledger Live™ app on the laptop, and Bluetooth®3 to connect to the Ledger Live Mobile app on a smartphone
  • Q1 wireless charging

“With the Ledger Nano™ series, we created the most successful digital asset security hardware of all time—with more than 5 million sold and none ever hacked,” says Pascal Gauthier, CEO and Chairman of Ledger. “Digital assets are increasingly about identity and digital ownership, not just crypto like Bitcoin. The time is now for a device for more mainstream users. At the same time, we must not compromise on security. This is Ledger Stax—secure and accessible.”

“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 Stax will be available in March 2023, and can be pre-ordered today.
