The “Genesis Edition” will be available for pre-order in a limited quantity of 10,000 units, according to the business.
On Tuesday, Ledger announced the launching of a limited edition of their brand new hardware wallet, the Ledger Nano S Plus, with only 10,000 units available for pre-order for $79 apiece. Ledger also announced a global cooperation with the Ethereum-based Proof of Attendance Protocol, or POAP, in addition to the event.
Because they exhibit proof of involvement and attendance for critical occasions, POAPs are referred to as digital memories of nonfungible tokens, or NFTs. The need of creating NFTs soul-bound to enable evidence of achievement was noted by Ethereum co-founder Vitalik Buterin in January.
“Securing and protecting your digital memories, like as the POAP you may collect with your Ledger Nano S Plus, is essential for anyone developing a lifelong collection,” stated Lucas Verra, CEO of POAP. A special engraving will be included in the Genesis Edition of the Ledger Nano S Plus. A card redeemable for a Genesis POAP NFT will be included with each shipment, allowing users to carry proof of this exclusive hardware wallet in their digital wallets as well. POAP will also be producing limited-edition NFTs for future Ledger events. Ledger’s chief experience officer, Ian Rogers, had the following to say about the development:
“This relationship with POAP and the launch of the Ledger Nano S Plus Genesis Edition at an accessible price reflects the recognition that digital assets will only grow as a tool for life experiences, and we aim to bring millions more into Web3 safely; as it happens,” says Ledger. According to the company, approximately 4.5 million Ledger Nano hardware wallets have been sold, with Ledger devices protecting nearly 20% of the world’s digital assets. The Nano S Plus accepts a wide range of digital assets, including over 5,500 coins and tokens as well as NFTs.
