Ledger, a global platform for digital assets and Web3, has teamed up with Tony Fadell, builder of the iPod, to bring clarity and confidence to owning digital value. Ledger Stax™ is a usable way for you to take control of cryptocurrency and digital collectibles. It is built on secure architecture and introduces a clever form designed for excellent accessibility and interactivity.

Ledger Stax has a new E-Ink display, which covers the front and curves around the spine—you can view complete transaction details at a glance. E Ink is always viewable: your favorite art appears on the Ledger Stax screen, even when it is off. It also provides energy efficiency, so the battery can last for weeks or even months on one battery charge.
Ledger Stax uses secure USB-C to connect to the comprehensive Ledger Live™ app on your laptop, and Bluetooth to connect to the Ledger Live Mobile app on your smartphone. It will utilize Ledger Connect, our upcoming crypto wallet extension, to connect to Web3 apps from anywhere. Ledger Stax also supports wireless Qi charging. “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.”
The new user interface enables clear, intuitive interaction. Out of the box, Ledger Stax lets you manage your NFT collection and over 500 coins and assets. The touch interface empowers Ledger’s exceptional developer community to build innovative Web3 applications that are more accessible, with uncompromising security.
Ledger Stax will be available in Q1 2023. It is also available for pre-order on Ledger.com. In the future, it will also be available from select retailers such as BestBuy in the United States.
