Ledger Supports Aptos dApps

Ledger, a hardware wallet that is one of the most secure methods of storing digital assets, now supports the Aptos blockchain and interacts with dApps on Pontem Wallet.

Now that Ledger supports Aptos dApps, users can trade APT and other assets on the Liquidswap DEX and interact with other dApps via Ledger hardware wallets.

First Aptos Wallet with Ledger Support Now Live

Aptos is a Layer 1 blockchain that is accelerating Web3 adoption through unparalleled technology and user experience. Aptos is creating a home for developers to build future-proof applications, with a core focus on upgradeability and approachability, complemented by the Move programming language. The Aptos Network went live on mainnet in October 2022, and its ecosystem includes over a hundred dApps ranging from NFT tooling solutions and DeFi protocols to gaming titles and decentralized launchpads.

Pontem, a product studio focused on the Aptos ecosystem, has created the first Aptos wallet to officially support Ledger. The wallet can be downloaded from the Ledger Live app catalog.

Ledger users can use the Aptos wallet by connecting their device to the Pontem Wallet and importing an account, which allows for the storage and transfer of APT tokens. Users can also perform swaps on the Liquidswap DEX, with all transactions confirmed directly on Ledger. A detailed tutorial is available here, as well as in the video below.

Users of Pontem Wallet can interact with in-wallet dApps. Rather than connecting to external dApp interfaces. Users can purchase NFTs, swap assets, and participate in liquid staking directly from their Ledger wallet. The Pontem Wallet’s attention to user interface and experience makes it an ideal platform for the growing Aptos ecosystem, as usability remains a cornerstone of Aptos’ mission to onboard the next billion users to Web3.
