EOS will be joined on the Ledger platform by Hycon (HYC), Fic Network (FIC), Pirl (PIRL), Rise (RISE) and Akroma (AKA), as well as the Waves (WAVES) crypto which is backed by Ledger.
Ledger is a company based in France which offers secure crypto wallets for consumer and enterprise use. The technology behind the wallet involves an operating system which uses a secure external chip to ensure the security of their users’ cryptocurrencies. More than 1 million wallets were sold by the company on a global level since its inception in 2014.
The wallet is currently compatible with 13 cryptocurrencies, and wallet owners can have access to many more digital coins via third-party applications.
The company features a Trello account which enables users to view potential new digital assets and vote for the ones they would like to be added to the platform. EOS currently has 178 votes and it is now marked as being “in progress” on Trello’ Roadmap.
This Roadmap method provides the company with a higher degree of transparency.
“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,” explained Ledger in a statement.
Ledger mentioned that Cypherglass, a coin block producer, was the one that offered the support for the newest third-party app incorporation. The company tweeted:
“The EOS third-party app was made possible by a @CypherglassBP bounty”.
Ledger will be announcing another round of new coins as eight more crypto assets are expected to be voted on in August. Some of the nominated coins are: Particl (PART), Ontology (ONT), Wanchain (WAN), and Kowala (kUSD).
