Holders of Polygon’s native MATIC token can now use the Ledger Live app while keeping their assets secure with their Ledger hardware wallets.
Ledger Live is a cryptocurrency management platform with 1.5 million monthly users managing, buying and swapping their token without ever leaving the security of the Ledger’s hardware wallet. Users can buy MATIC tokens directly through MoonPay and swap tokens through 1inch and Paraswap. The app is available for both desktop and mobile.
Follow these three simple steps to get started with MATIC on Ledger Live:
Create a Polygon account in your Ledger Live Account tab.
Buy through Ledger Live or transfer MATIC tokens to your account.
Hodl or swap to discover new coins or tokens on the Polygon chain.
Security is one of the main concerns for both newcomers to cryptocurrency and veterans alike. With a Ledger hardware wallet, your private keys are offline, stored within your device, enabling a hack-proof experience. Ledger sold more than 3 million hardware wallets in 190 countries to date securing an estimated 15% of all cryptocurrency assets globally.
Find out which Ledger device is right for you, then download the Ledger Live app. Keep up with the latest Polygon news on our blog.
