It’s been a precarious year for cryptocurrency enthusiasts and investors. Not only has NFT trading declined by an absolutely enormous 97% since its peak around this same time last year, but several of the biggest and most reputable crypto exchanges have also shut down or filed for bankruptcy — including both FTX and BitFront. As a result, more and more investors have been turning to cold wallets (i.e. physical wallets that hold cryptocurrency tokens offline). And one of the latest — and coolest — to hit the market is Ledger’s all-new Stax Crypto Wallet.
Boasting the thickness of a stack of five credit cards, this crypto token and NFT wallet can support more than 5,000 different crypto coins. The wallet runs off of Ledger’s extremely secure proprietary operating system and comes backed by the world-renowned Secure Element chip. Also equipped with Ledger’s largest display to date, the Stax features a curved E Ink touchscreen and a customizable always-on lock screen. As one might have guessed from the name, the Stax wallet can be stacked and coupled together thanks to a series of embedded magnets.
Sold with included access to Ledger Live app support, the device sports a USB-C port for charging, though can also be juiced up via Qi-style wireless charging. Crafted around an aluminum housing, this high-tech EDC item was also penned by Tony Fadell, who was the senior vice president of the iPod division at Apple and oversaw the design and creation of the watershed MP3 player. And, in addition to boasting Bluetooth connectivity, the Ledger Stax is also compatible with both macOS and Windows, as well as iOS and Android.
The Ledger Stax Crypto Wallet is available now for preorder, with pricing set at $279 for each stackable wallet.
