Most recently, the team behind Monero GUI wallet announced an update, which pleasantly surprised the Monero community. The new Version 0.12.3.0 offers Ledger support.
Monero has always stood out as privacy and security-oriented token but this time the development team really outdid itself. In fact, Monero has perhaps the most dedicated community and that dedication is often paid off. Without creating any unnecessary hype, the developing team silently builds a sustainable ecosystem.
These tactics over put Monero in the shadows and regular updates often go unnoticed. However, the last Monero GUI wallet release was difficult to miss. The most important update is definitely the one which allows for a native Ledger wallet support. The fact that the hardware wallet now integrates easily with Monero is a win-win situation. The cold wallet manufacturer adds a trusted token, while the Monero lovers get a chance to fully reap the benefits of Ledger’s hardware wallet.
GUI wallet users are now able to open Monero Ledger wallet within GUI itself. However, this is only possible if the user has connected a physical Ledger wallet to their computer. This further adds to the security offered by Ledger. Furthermore, this is not the only update GUI wallet comes with. The user interface is slightly adjusted as well as some minor bugs apparent in previous versions.
Unsurprisingly, one Redditor wrote:
“The professionalism and passion of this dev team continues to astound me. Well done!!!”
The price of Bitcoin may define the whole market and the unmatchable diversity of the Ethereum ecosystem may make or break the industry but it’s really projects like Monero that bring something special to the cryptocurrency world. It is fascinating to see how Monero evolves over time. We have to say that the team has really upped its game with the integrated Ledger wallet support.
