On the other hand, the ZenGo wallet is a mobile crypto wallet founded in July 2018 and it is known to track your investments at a glance, and follow your portfolio and market data over time. This it does on a simple, clean and well-detailed interface.

Owners of the Ledger Nano X will at a certain time need to link their hardware wallets to an online wallet such as the ZenGo wallet to initiate and complete a transaction.

Let’s see if this works…

After testing this out, we realized that the Ledger Nano X and the ZenGo wallet cannot be linked, although they both have common attributes as regards the world of web3.

However, users can use both wallets side by side and enjoy amazing features on mobile (ZenGo) and cold storage (Ledger). I will mention these features in this article.

The Ledger Nano X is a USB storage wallet that allows users to safely store their crypto assets offline. It also integrates with Ledger Live, which enables it to support over 1100 cryptocurrencies.

Two key features that particularly stand out about this wallet are the Bluetooth feature and the ability to operate it with your smartphone via the iOS and Android apps.

The device also comes with increased storage space and wireless connectivity, a bigger size, an integrated 2-function button, and a bigger screen for checking transactions.

Because the device is highly secure and comes with a universal charging cord, it becomes much more appealing to store your cryptocurrency in it with the confidence that it will be safe from attacks or thefts.

A Look at the ZenGo Wallet

The ZenGo wallet is a simple and secure crypto wallet that users can make use of to safely secure their crypto assets as well as connect to DeFi apps.

This security has been made possible with the introduction of private facial biometrics and industry-leading encryption to keep users safe from account takeover attacks and phishing.

Other than the fact that users can securely store their crypto assets, they also get access to the world of web3, where they can discover NFTs, decentralized finance, crypto gaming, and thousands of Dapps.

The Ledger Connect

Ledger Connect is Ledger’s upcoming crypto wallet extension that will enable users to connect to Web3 apps from anywhere with their Ledger Nano X to prevent hacks and scams and keep their crypto and NFTs secure.

Simply put, no more third-party wallet dependencies will be needed to securely dive into web3 through the Ledger ecosystem. It’s the first browser extension that has been designed from the outset to work with a Ledger hardware wallet. 

It is the only browser extension to support both blockchains and will gradually be compatible with other protocols after the launch. 

In addition, Ledger Connect will also automatically switch to the right network when connecting to a Web3 app.

For instance, if the app is working on ETH, the extension will automatically detect it and connect the users’ ETH accounts. This automatic blockchain detection feature won’t be available at launch but will be made available soonest.

The WalletConnect

WalletConnect is that extra security step – an open-source protocol to communicate securely between cryptocurrency Wallets and Dapps (decentralized Web3 applications).

It confirms your identity and helps you safely get to where you want to go in the Web3 universe – all from the ZenGo wallet.

From NFTs on OpenSea, trading on Uniswap, earning yield through Lido, and gaming in The Sandbox, users can make use of WalletConnect with ZenGo to securely connect to the wonderful world of Dapps (decentralized apps).

This protocol gives users access to hundreds of Dapps from ZenGo and any other crypto wallet out there. It also opens up the option for users to do everything from buying and selling NFTs to earning yield in decentralized finance Dapps.

Final Thoughts

While it may not be possible to link the Ledger Nano X with the ZenGo wallet, they both have unique features—Ledger Connect and WalletConnect—that allow users to access web3.

One could say that these protocols serve as the link or bridge between these wallets and the world of web3.
