Support for DGLD on the Ledger Nano S device gives DGLD owners an additional layer of security if they so choose to store their digital gold on a trusted hardware device. Further unlocking the benefits of gold in a digital, disintermediated format.

The Ledger Nano S is a hardware wallet that is built around the most secure type of chip on the market, ensuring optimal security for custodying digital assets.

A hardware wallet is a cryptocurrency wallet which stores the user's private keys (critical piece of information used to authorise outgoing transactions on the blockchain network) in a secure hardware device. The main principle behind hardware wallets is to provide full isolation between the private keys and your easy-to-hack computer or smartphone. Ledger’s hardware wallet technology provides the highest level of security for digital assets. Their products combine a Secure Element and a proprietary OS designed specifically to protect your assets. Ledger hardware wallets empower you with the ownership and control of your private keys.

DGLD is a digital proof of ownership of allocated gold physically held in a Swiss vault, backed by industry-leading partners and secured with the Bitcoin network. With DGLD, individuals and investors have access to the benefits of physical gold ownership, combined with the convenience and flexibility of digital money. Our approach puts control in the hands of consumers and removes the multiple layers of middlemen traditionally associated with owning other non-physical representations of gold available on the market today.
