Where are the Ledger products made?

All Ledger’s products are designed and assembled in France and Asia. They have their own assembly lines located in the center of France (Vierzon). We favour local suppliers when possible (injection molding, metal works…).

Is Ledger somehow like a bank?

Absolutely not. If the functional usage of the Ledger Wallet can be seen as a banking application, there is one major difference : Ledger never holds any of your crypto-currencies. The Ledger Wallet is just software built on a piece of hardware. Therefore Ledger is not at all subject to any kind of financial regulation. We are not in any case custodian of your assets.

Can Ledger have access to my bitcoins?

Absolutely not. Ledger will never have any knowledge of your master seed, private or public. Wallets are sold empty, and an initialization process is required to be done by the user to generate the private keys. This process is done locally and will not send any information to our servers. The Chrome application is open source, and its code can be reviewed here.

Where do Ledger ship? How long does it take?

Ledger ship worldwide. They have 5 warehouses in the world: Vierzon (France), Los Angeles (USA), Toronto (Canada), Sydney (Australia) and Hong Kong (China). They offer a multitude of options depending of your destination and your budget.

What is Ledger privacy/tracking policy?

All wallets are sold with identical firmware, without any serial or tracking information. It is therefore not possible to link your wallet to your shipping address. We cannot, and we absolutely do not want to track any of our customers.

We do not keep nor archive any log of our APIs regarding the use of our wallet applications; All logs used for debuging purpose (sent by users) are destroyed after analysis.

Why is altcoin X not supported?
