We are thrilled to announce that Hive has been integrated with and is now available on Ledger Nano S, Nano S Plus, and Nano X hardware wallets effective today, November 1, 2022.
The integration is the work of @engrave:
Ledger wallets are secure, trusted, and widely available. That makes them the perfect partner for the Hive decentralized blockchain. 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. Read more here.
Much technical effort went into this integration. 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 standard to match 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 HBD recipients, key 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.
This is an amazing development and addition to the Hive ecosystem!
