Hive Announces Support for Ledger Hardware Wallets
Every once in a while, I get a client who wants me to write a press release. In this case, it was the Hive blockchain. They've authorized me to distribute the press release as I see fit, so I'm sharing it with you all.
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
November 1, 2022 – Hive blockchain and leading Web3 platform, announced integration with Ledger Nano S, Nano S Plus, and Nano X hardware wallets effective November 1, 2022.
“Ledger wallets are secure, trusted, and widely available,” Hive developer Bartłomiej G. said. “That makes them the perfect partner for the Hive decentralized blockchain.”
Hive does not use the unspent transaction output (UTXO) protocol model. The Ledger implementation for Hive utilizes the SLIP-0048: Deterministic Key Hierarchy for Graphene-based Networks standard, which extends BIP-44 to match a role-based model.
The Hive-Ledger implementation allows users to view and manage public keys using a special Hive Ledger Wallet companion application. It facilitates the review of transaction properties such as transfers and staking amounts, HIVE and Hive-Backed Dollars (HBD) recipients, derivation paths, delegation, governance voting, and much more. All operations and their properties are visible on a device screen. Users must approve transactions with a digital signature issued by the device.
“Ledger hardware wallets allow Hive to utilize an unlimited set of private and public key pairs to secure multiple Hive accounts with the same device,” Bartłomiej G. said.
The Hive ecosystem is expanding, and recent development ensures it will continue to grow. HardFork 26 introduced the One-Block Irreversibility protocol, which solidifies Hive’s market lead among Delegated Proof of Stake (DPoS) blockchains.
Hardware wallets are devices that keep users’ private keys secure on a physical chip that does not expose it to the computer or the internet and which makes it almost impossible to compromise when used daily. Integration with Ledger will introduce Hive to a broader international audience who will gain access to the blockchain’s industry-leading 20 percent APR on HBD savings accounts.
