What’s new? Hardware wallet maker Ledger has announced an integration with Coinbase, CoinDesk reports. This will allow Ledger users to buy digital assets using the Coinbase Pay service without additional fees. Ian Rogers, the crypto wallet’s chief experience officer, noted that this is not Ledger’s first integration with a cryptocurrency marketplace or exchange. Other partners include crypto payment services Moonpay and Ramp, and Web 3.0 infrastructure provider

What else is known? According to Rogers, there are 5,3 billion internet users, 5 billion social media users, 500 million cryptocurrency owners and about 10 million safe custodians. Since there are few trusted custodians, the top priority for Ledger is to build a reliable infrastructure for storing digital assets, he added.

In September 2023, Petra crypto wallet from developers Aptos added the Coinbase Pay service to its apps. In October, Mastercard announced plans to collaborate with non-custodial cryptocurrency wallet providers including MetaMask and Ledger.
