The Elastos community has been eagerly waiting for integration on the popular Ledger hardware wallet, as Coranos has already submitted his code to Ledger for full audit. Ledger’s team has released a full statement regarding future apps: “New applications are postponed until the Nano X hardware wallet is shipped. This has taken priority for Ledger until the new hardware is available and all current projects migrated.” Elastos is currently on the Ledger internal and external developments Trello page. The Elastos team will continue to seek updates until ELA is supported. The good news is that the new Ledger Nano X hardware wallets have officially shipped and the delay should soon be over.
