Functions Of The Ledger Live

The Ledger Live is built to serve the following purpose.

  1. It gives you an overview of all your cryptocurrency portfolio activities i.e;
  • Check your balance for each crypto at a glance
  • It displays a full history of all your transactions.
  • Manage your crypto assets at the same time.
  1. Send and receive your cryptos.
  2. To set up your new Ledger wallet.

Note: The “Ledger Live” does not expose your private keys to the internet, because of the security chip embedded in your Ledger wallet, thus even in a virus-infested computer, your crypto is still safe.
