The cryptocurrency hardware wallet provider Ledger has partnered with The Sandbox blockchain game to promote crypto education in its virtual world.
Ledger’s chief experience officer Ian Rogers announced the news at the Non-Fungible Conference (NFC) on Monday. He said that the new partnership aims to bring security into The Sandbox’s world and also provide Ledger with a place in The Sandbox (SAND) to educate people about crypto.
Rogers thanked The Sandbox and the company’s co-founder and chief operations officer Sebastien Borget for this opportunity, noting that Ledger will provide SAND owners with custom Ledger Nanos as part of the partnership.
In an exclusive statement to Cointelegraph, Rogers pointed out that the most important part of the partnership with The Sandbox is giving people education around security. He stated:
“The reality is that educated people become Ledger customers, and so we just want to make sure that all people have all the education they need to be safe and to properly manage this incredible kind of rights and freedoms that they have of self custody.”
“Self-custody really gives you personal freedom but it’s also responsibility. You have to take it super seriously so you keep that right and don’t lose it,” Rogers added.
A spokesperson for Ledger told Cointelegraph that the company plans to announce more details about the partnership at a later date.
Ledger is one of the world’s largest providers of hardware cryptocurrency wallets, or USB devices designed to store the user’s private keys. The French company has been actively expanding its operations beyond traditional cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin (BTC), moving to support nonfungible tokens (NFTs). In early March, Ledger announced the release of a limited edition of the Ledger Nano S Plus, a brand new hardware wallet supporting NFTs by design.
