100 tokens by 2020: ledger pledgges expansion for crypto
Ledger, the France-based wallet and custody startup, is ramping up the number of cryptocurrencies it supports to meet the demand for multi-coin solutions, particularly from institutional investors.
Currently, Ledger’s products and services handle only about two dozen tokens, and this week it’s adding support for tron (TRX) and zcoin (XZC).
For similar reasons, BitGo recently added support for 57 ethereum-based assets to its custody services for institutions.
Further, Ledger president Pascal Gauthier said bringing traditional players into the wider crypto ecosystem would bolster bitcoin’s real-world value, even if these investors ultimately buy other crypto assets.
Open-source tools for Ledger Live also allow external communities to build support features for their favorite crypto.
