OpenSea Adds Direct Support for Ledger Wallets
It is now possible to directly connect a Ledger hardware wallet to OpenSea, bypassing MetaMask, the @Ledger official Twitter account announced this afternoon. As of today, Ledger joins WalletConnect, MetaMask, Coinbase Wallet, Phantom and BitKeep as connection options on OpenSea's NFT marketplace:
Ledger's announcement notes this same functionality is coming to "many more web3 apps" soon.
This is the second major NFT development from Ledger this week. On Monday, Ledger dropped its [ Ledger ] Market - Ledger Stax NFT collection, which allows collectors the opportunity to trade in their NFT for a Ledger Stax hardware wallet. Thus far, Ledger has sold 3,640 of a possible 10,000 NFTs at the 0.22 ETH mint price. The collection has traded 47 ETH on OpenSea and the floor price sits at 0.1845 ETH on the secondary market at the time of writing.
