Ledger Nano S, high security cold wallet

The ledger Nano S supports many different cryptos all within one hardware device.  When your keys are on your computer they are subject to malware, phishing and other nefarious ways to access your coins. 

Ledger hides your keys in a highly secure chip which you can move to an offline area and the private keys are never exposed.  If you lose or damage your ledger, as long as you have your 24 word recovery phrase written down you will still have access to your coins. 

Ledger works with other wallets such as MyEtherWallet which you can use to access your Private Keys without moving your coins from the security of the Ledger.  This is very useful as MyEtherWallet carries a lot of coins which you can easily purchase and store.

The following is how you set up your Ledger Nano S:
