Layer Design has demonstrated a desire to be at the forefront of culturally relevant technology. Now, the design agency located in the United Kingdom has entered the arena of digital currency and assets with a device for them all.
They have teamed with designer Tony Fadell (former Apple executive and co-creator of the iPod and iPhone) and technology brand Ledger to produce a device the size of a credit card for storing, accessing, and sending all cryptocurrencies and NFTs.
The Ledger Stacks crypto wallet for your intangible assets (such as secure code, digital currency, and non-tangible art) has been under development for almost two years. With the capacity to manage over 5,500 crypto assets such as coins and non-fungible tokens, the goal is to make it highly intuitive and easy to use. Benjamin Hubert, the founder of LAYER, has properly stated: “We strongly believe in a future of secure and private financial sovereignty where crypto becomes the norm.”
This small device has an e-ink screen and a touchscreen that goes all the way around the front and back. We already know that e-ink displays use little energy, so we can expect the battery to last for weeks or months, since it won’t be used that often as a portable device. To keep things simple, there is only one button to turn the device on or off. The body is also made of aluminum, and the magnetic work makes it possible to stack multiple devices. This is built in a way that is similar to Ledger’s Nano series of wallets.
Overall, the gadget is very easy to carry because it has soft edges that make it easy to hold on to. So far, the project seems to be going well, and it should be done by the end of March 2023. For now, the price is $299, and you can place a pre-order right away.
