Crypto hardware wallet provider, Ledger has announced a partnership with The Sandbox metaverse! Ledger’s chief experience officer, Ian Rogers made the announcement on Monday, April 4, during the Non-Fungible Conference (NFC) held in Paris. The partnership aims to bring security to the metaverse. Furthermore, it will provide Ledger a space in the metaverse to educate and support users.
Ledger x The Sandbox: What we know so far
The partnership between Ledger and The Sandbox, two of the biggest names in the space, will benefit users of both platforms. Firstly, Ledger will provide SAND owners with custom Ledger Nanos. More importantly, Ledger will build a hub on their LAND to educate users as well as provide gamified experiences. The company will also set up an “office hours bar,” where Sandbox users can meet Ledger’s customer support team.
“The reality is that educated people become Ledger customers,” Rogers told Cointelegraph. “So we just want to make sure that all people have all the education they need to be safe and to properly manage this incredible right and freedom that they have of self-custody.”
“Self-custody really gives you personal freedom, but it’s also responsibility. You have to take it super seriously so that you keep that right and don’t lose it,” he added.
For the uninitiated, Ledger is one of the leading providers of hardware cryptocurrency wallets in the world. Basically, hardware wallets are physical devices that store a user’s seed phrase/private key. Amid the rising NFT scams in the space, it has become safer to store NFTs in hardware wallets. They are more secure compared to hot wallets like MetaMask.
Obviously, the partnership spells big things for the metaverse space as a whole. Both Ledger and The Sandbox will announce more details about the partnership in the near future.
