ledger looks like they're taking things to the next level with possible partnerships with the true global tech players and introducing new products for institutional level players, though that can hardly be the biggest market.

interesting to see how profitable they are as well.

it's a shame they screwed the pooch with the ledger blue. that's a little bit of a black mark for them.

" The president won’t name names, saying Ledger is talking to “a lot of people,” but a source with knowledge of the round told Forbes that Siemens, Samsung and Google’s venture arm GV have all shown interest, and that there’s talk of Ledger’s valuation nearing $1 billion."

If they sell out to Google, I will surely empty my hardware wallet and crush it and place a video on Youtube. Angry We are trying our best to rid ourselves from Big Brother and now there are rumours of them having conversations with Google.  Roll Eyes

I bought hardware wallets to prevent a reoccurrence of the MtGox fiasco and also to have full control over my private keys, so they were spot on with that vision.  Wink

Most recently, there was a scandal about the fact that Yandex has opened access to document files that were stored on Google. It was Google's fault. Does anyone want to see their private keys in public? I am against any centralized system. If this happens then there will be no cryptocurrency.

Some people have never trusted hardware wallets and used spare PC's and laptops as cold storage. Perhaps the chance of big hardware wallets going rogue is very low now, but for users with huge amounts of coins it's a risk they can not afford. But in theory every hardware can have backdoors, if Intel have placed crap like ME in their CPU's, it's totally possible that they might place some backdoors that will target cryptocurrency users if NSA would ask them. So, the future of cold wallets will be interesting, especially when the stakes will get higher.
