Particl and Ledger Team Up to Bring Cold Staking to the Nano S

Particl (PART) is now supported by Ledger Nano S and Ledger Live. PART was the first Proof of Stake (PoS) coin to offer cold storage staking – or what Particl calls “Cold Staking” – to mainnet last November.

ZUG, Switzerland, August 13, 2018 – Ledger Nano S allows up to 18 currencies on one's hardware wallet at the same time. Particl has built apps for both PART mainnet and testnet. Ledger Live is an easy way to manage the currencies on one's Ledger device, including Particl (PART).

The significance of Particl’s integration comes into play with how the Ledger Nano S is coded – no private key is exchanged between the Ledger Nano S hardware device and the client (Particl-Qt). This means that users will now be able to store funds on a hardware device, delegate the Ledger’s staking powers to a cold staking node and earn passive income from a cold wallet without any complicated extra steps to access their PART.

This integration, as it currently stands, is the first ever successful mainnet release of a pure PoS hardware cold staking setup, the ultimate solution for users looking at getting the best level of security, flexibility, and accessibility without compromising decentralization.
