Cryptocurrency hardware wallet provider Ledger has partnered with blockchain game The Sandbox to promote crypto education in its virtual world.
Ian Rogers, Ledger’s chief experience officer, announced the news at Non-Fungible Conference on Monday. He said that the new partnership aims to bring security into The Sandbox’s world and provide Ledger with a place in the game to educate people about crypto.
The Sandbox and Ledger have partnered to promote crypto education in the metaverse.
Rogers thanked The Sandbox and Sebastien Borget, the company’s co-founder and chief operations officer, for the opportunity, noting that Ledger will provide SAND owners with custom Ledger Nanos as part of the partnership.
Ledger aims to inform people about the uses of private crypto wallets, like the ones it provides. These wallets allow people to self-hold their crypto assets that reduce the risks of losing them to hacks or breaches.
“Self-custody really gives you personal freedom, but it’s also responsibility. You have to take it super seriously so that you keep that right and don’t lose it (crypto holdings),” Rogers added.
Ledger is one of the world’s largest providers of hardware cryptocurrency wallets, which are physical devices designed to store a user’s private keys. The French company has been actively expanding its operations beyond traditional cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin (BTC), moving to support nonfungible tokens. In early March, Ledger announced the release of a limited edition of the Ledger Nano S Plus, a brand new hardware wallet supporting NFTs by design.
