Super tempted but I don't think I hold enough bitcoin to warrant the purchase.
Voted hot. Nice price reduction.

it holds many different cryptos

Not into this at all, but presumably this contains a small amount of flash memory (not the normal kind which can be written to up to only about 500 times)
Is the window on the side of the thing a display?
Presumably you connect it via a microusb to usb cable. Why doesn't it simply have a usb connection? (microusb is not a very reliable connection)
There are no physical buttons on the device?

This is a good bit of kit, but they're working on a new generation, not that I know what extra features that will have, or the price.

they're definitely working on new things, but we probably won't get any updated for a few years on the nano
they updated the ledger tablet recently - but I want something small and on the go.

yeah that shipping price really kills it
still it's a great little device - probably the safest on the market and a good ground zero for all cryptominers and cryptoinvestors (which should be everyone in my opinion)

The Ledger Amazon site link takes you to an empty storefront. Hopefully the current Amazon stock is from Ledger. There's also a few UK approved retailers such as myhardwarewallet which have black friday offers around the same price. Buying direct from Ledger I guess you'd also pay VAT?

Sorry, I meant the official Ledger Amazon storefront link amazon.co.uk/s?m…B8N

Don't mind me, I'm just paranoid

Seems that you have to click to choose Amazon as the seller. Not sure if I'd prefer it direct from the factory. When it comes to security there is no such thing as paranoid :-)

Although I hadn't thought about customs etc if buying from their French factory via their official site..

Sorry off topic but what website or forum would people recommend for learning about crypto/mining?

No worries about customs for at least another year....

Gone even cheaper now!
i wonder how long this reduced price will last... I have some TCB credit but it takes a couple of days to process...

bought it few days ago before black friday, was same price

r/bitcoin is full of charlatans
if interested in cryptos the best thing you can do to get an introduction to it is to watch some videos on youtube on blockchain (TED talks one is good), then search "what is bitcoin" "what is ethereum" etc.
Then start learning about the top 10 cryptocurrencies and pick some favourites

Nice 1 haven't out my order in yet but need to quick ...cheers

Trying to weigh up whether this is worth it or would just keeping private keys safe do the job?

I've even been told you could just put this stuff on a USB stick?

Malware could potentially read the private keys in your usb stick when connected to an infected computer

The most secure wallet is technically a paper wallet... But you can't do much besides hold crypto there. As soon as you try to make a transfer, a computer infected with malware or otherwise compromised will have access to your private keys by key logging or direct access to your desktop ui.

The best wallet that you can use, where no level of malware or attack can steal your private key even when you log in to make transactions is... You guessed it. The good news is you can buy some peace of mind in the crypto space.

Don't cheap out and risk it all. I was hesitant at first but realise that was a beginner's mistake. This should be the first step for anyone buying crypto. Remember that unlike banks and credit cards, if something gets stolen you're entirely on your own without help.

Ordered Saturday evening from Ledger, arrived today via DHL

Bought one on Monday in the end before the sale ended

Now to worry about storing the secret words

Was considering a photo on Lastpass in the secure documents part as well as keeping the paper safe. Not sure though. Seems a risk.

no photo
that's the whole point
it's a paper cold-storage wallet that you can access like a hot wallet

For all of you guys who's obviously wayyyyy more offay with this Crypto Currency game than I am ...

I'm interested in getting in on this act too. :-)

Where do I start also?, which Companies/Broker's should I now perhaps be looking to source out/seek out, etc etc etc?.

Any advice/link's to any such useful/notable information would prove greatly helpful/useful, thanx in advance. :-)

I'd quite like a hardware wallet. How do you know you can trust them?

Go on YouTube and watch some reviews. This is the best iteration of a hardware wallet to date. U2F authenticator with a physical button.

Most beginners start with coin base, but they have fees. Sign up with their parent company bittrex for no fees and use coinbase to navigate the crypto space at least until you're used to the info.

As for investing, it's up to you, but I stick with the top 15 to be the most safe

Thanx for that. :-D

I'm going to have to perhaps research some more on what is/the meaning of "Ponzi schemes", etc etc too I believe?. :-)

What is this Paper Wallet thing a few people on here keep talking about please?.
