Ledger offers a secure gateway for investors looking to access the world of digital assets. The firm’s products include the world’s most popular hardware wallet for cryptocurrency assets, a crypto management platform, and a digital assets security solution for financial institutions.

“This Series C announcement marks the transition of Ledger from the leading digital asset security company to becoming the secure gateway to the entire digital asset ecosystem. This industry is fast becoming mainstream and reshaping the entire financial sector and beyond,” says Pascal Gauthier, CEO, Ledger.
