Today, SDF and Ledger are excited to announce that USD Coin (USDC) on Stellar is now live on Ledger Live. Ledger Live is an open-source Web3 app that connects directly to the Ledger hardware wallet. It offers a user experience where customers may perform a wide array of actions related to their assets, such as viewing their portfolio, sending, receiving, buying*, selling, and swapping their assets.
For SDF, this integration represents a significant step forwards toward our building block of activating more network participation. As of today, anyone may now securely send, receive and buy USDC on Stellar through their Ledger Live app while keeping their assets secure with a Ledger hardware wallet.
Ledger’s reach is significant, and any of its users stand to benefit greatly from being able to transact with USDC on Stellar. USDC on Stellar combines the power and inclusivity of the Stellar network with one of the world’s fastest-growing digital dollar currencies. Additionally, USDC on Stellar enables seamless, near-instant, low-cost cross-border payments, remittances, and next-gen treasury management, and is already supported on many prominent projects. Along with Ledger Live, USDC on Stellar will be supported by both Ledger Nano X, Ledger Nano S, and Ledger Nano S Plus hardware wallets as well as MyEtherWallet and MyCrypto.
