Notable side notes
The turn of 2022 has seen hardware wallets gain much prominence in the cryptocurrency space. The crisis that has befallen different cryptocurrency exchanges since the turn of the year has led to their popularity.
For Ledger, the hardware wallet provider gained more from the minor crisis Coinbase suffered when the bear market was at its peak. The firm confirmed that it made sales worth about $2 million in a day. The sales occurred when Coinbase made a declaration that its customer’s funds are not safe if it slides into bankruptcy.
Meanwhile, the support from Ledger for Solana represents another huge development for the token and it’s ecosystem. According to market data from Coincodex, SOL currently trades at $31.20.
