Ledger Wallet Adds 7 New Coins, Including EOS
The French company also backed Waves (WAVES), Hycon (HYC), Rise (RISE), Pirl (PIRL), Fic Network (FIC), and Akroma (AKA).
Ledger, one of the leading software developers of digital currency wallets, said on Tuesday it has added several new coins, including one of the top crypto players EOS (EOS). The new list is the second group of coins under the recently established system of adding new cryptos to the wallet.
Along with EOS, Ledger backed Waves (WAVES), Hycon (HYC), Rise (RISE), Pirl (PIRL), Fic Network (FIC), and Akroma (AKA). All seven coins are available as third-party applications on Ledger Live, the company’s new product that aims to be an alternative to Chrome wallet management tools.
The French company provided a link to its work roadmap on Trello where everybody can see which new coins Ledger plans to add, vote for them, or give feedback about these crypto assets. EOS, which is currently the number five virtual currency by market capitalization, had 178 votes as at the time of publishing while Cardano (ADA) had 462, IOTA (MIOTA) had 233, and Tezos (XTZ) had 219 votes.
Ledger added EOS after receiving support from the coin block producer Cypherglass.
“The EOS third-party app was made possible by a @CypherglassBP bounty,” the Paris-based company tweeted.
Ledger’s Trello List consists of several digital assets that are scheduled for adding in the upcoming months. Some of the major projects are Decred (DCR), Nebulas (NAS) Lisk (LSK), ZClassic (ZCL), MonaCoin (MONA), and Syscoin (SYS).
Last month, the French company revealed a new set of rules for backing crypto projects that aims to bring more transparency. Ledger will announce a coin list every first Tuesday of the month.
“The validation process for third-party apps will be simplified with clearer guidelines, giving developers more comprehensive guidance on security good practice, device applications interface, experience, and design requirements,” Ledger explained.
The Ledger August coin list included eight crypto assets: Particl (PART), Ontology (ONT), VeChain (VET), ICON (ICX), POA Network (POA), Wanchain (WAN), Kowala (kUSD), and RSK.
