So far, we have covered 4 online wallets that are pretty common among crypto users. The 5th entry into the list of most common wallets is, however, what is referred to as a hardware wallet.

Hardware wallets are a form of offline storage. A hardware wallet is a cryptocurrency wallet that stores the user’s private keys (a critical piece of information used to authorize outgoing transactions on the blockchain network) in a secure hardware device.

Ledger’s hardware wallets are device-based, which means they use storage mechanisms – USB drives – to store private keys, thereby making it difficult for hackers to access the key from an online location.

Ledger offers two hardware wallets:

  • The Ledger Nano S
  • The Ledger Nano X wallets

Both wallets are USB storage wallets that enable users to perform a wide variety of functions, including sending and receiving bitcoin from blockchains, or running third-party apps on the device.

These wallets also use a 24-word backup recovery phrase that can be used to access a user’s cryptocurrencies if the device containing the private key is stolen.
