Mark objects as spam

As a Ledger Enterprise use (admin or oprator), you will now be able to mark/unmark an account or transaction as spam and then filter on this new tag. This is to reduce the risk that your operators accidentally use, in new operations, addresses from poisoning transactions. Note still that operators should always use the "receive" button to generate receive addresses safely, and not copy addresses from the operations history. Finally we strongly suggest to use whitelists systematically.

Please find more information on address poisonong scams here.

Process for marking accounts as spam:

Clicking on the button with the three dots "..." will display the context menu for you to mark or unmark an account as spam. You can find documentation for adding a label to the Account matching the ID here.

Please note that only "view-only" accounts can be marked as spam, meaning only LAM and API operators and all admins can mark accounts as spam.

New EVMs Integration

Ledger Enterprise is excited to introduce Direct Access to new EVM networks: Celo, Cronos, Kava, and TomoChain, along with their respective test networks. This enables you to interact directly with these networks, create accounts, view balances, perform transactions, and engage with DeFi and NFT applications.

Direct Access is a support mode where the Ledger Enterprise Platform communicates directly with EVM networks. This method allows users to explore and interact with a broader array of blockchains without the need for them to be fully indexed on our platform. With Direct Access, you can:

  • Create accounts on these newly supported networks
  • View your account balances for both parent and ERC20 children accounts
  • Perform basic asset transfers
  • Engage with DeFi and NFT applications on these networks

Please note that due to the nature of Direct Access (without full indexing), reporting capabilities are currently limited to outgoing transactions. Additionally, users should be aware of potential rate limitations on transactions that might impact their ability to perform actions rapidly or in high volumes. However, we plan to enable Full Access on these networks in later iterations to provide comprehensive reporting and minimize such limitations. Until Full Access is available, users can use external tools, such as public explorers (e.g., ArbitrumScan), to retrieve additional information on their reporting.

Learn more about how to leverage these new supported networks here.

June 2023 - Version 4.27.0: Tron with Vault Signer, EVM Message Signing, WalletConnect v2 support

June 2023 - Version 4.27.0


Overview

  • Send and Receive TRON with Vault Signer and Ledger Live
  • Sign Ethereum & EVM Messages - EIP-191 & EIP-712 support
  • Interact wiht external DApps using WalletConnect v2

Tron with Vault Signer

The Vault Signer feature enables users to use an external wallet to craft a transaction, and then sign it on the Vault. The external wallet takes on the role of the crafter, while the Vault retains all control of the signer. This guarantees that transactions will still have to follow the governance rules enforced by the HSM. The biggest change is that the transactions will be crafted on the extension instead of the Vault.

In this first release of this feature the coin TRON will be available, with crafting operations done in Ledger Live.

ledger live send step 3

Sign Ethereum & EVM Messages - EIP-191 & EIP-712 support

Signing messages serves a crucial purpose in the web3 ecosystem. It allows users to confirm their identity, authenticate transactions, and interact with smart contracts without the need to share their private keys.

The EIP-191 and EIP-712 formats are Ethereum Improvement Proposals that standardize signed messages:

  • EIP-191 provides a basic signed data scheme. It is mostly used to let users prove that they control an address without revealing their private key, typically when logging into a DApp.
  • EIP-712 improves upon EIP-191 and makes the process of data signing more user-friendly. It displays the data in a structured and readable format, improving user understanding and control over what they are signing.

Ledger Enteprise now supports the signature of messages in both EIP-191 and EIP-712 formats, according to governance rules defined by admins, and enables operators to review their content on the Trusted Display of their Personal Security Devices.

The signature of messages with Ledger Enterprise accounts opens up multiple opportunities in the web3 ecosystem. Here are a few examples:

  • Decentralized Finance (DeFi) apps such as MakerDao, Aave or Curve Finance often require users to sign transactions for lending, borrowing, or trading assets
  • Decentralized Exchanges (DEXs) such as Uniswap or Sushiswap's trading process involve signing messages to authorize trades and liquidity provisions
  • NFT Marketplaces such as OpenSea, Rarible or Blur involve transactions where users purchase, bid for, or transfer digital assets. These marketplaces often require message signatures to ensure these transactions are secure and valid.
  • Identity and social apps such as ENS (Ethereum Name Service) or Lenster use signatures to verify identities, prove ownership or facilitate secure communication
  • DAOs and governance apps such as Snapshot or Aragon often require members to sign messages to participate in voting and other governance actions.

This feature is currently available only on demand. Please contact your Technical Account Manager for more informations.

bsc sci

You can now interact with any smart contract based applications on Binance Smart Chain, and benefit from the low fees of the network to optimize your web3 operations, whether it be DeFi or NFT. Ledger Enterprise provides the same level of support as on Ethereum:

  • Administrators can configure smart contract enabled accounts on BSC, and define a dedicated governance rule for interacting with web3 apps on BSC.
  • Operators can access Vault DApps on BSC directly on their workspace, featuring Paraswap for now (and more to come).
  • Operators can interact with any BSC contract using the Contract Interaction panel - provided the contract has its ABI published on BscScan.
  • Operators will be able to Clear Sign their BSC smart contact interactions on Trusted Display for all supported contracts (see: Supported ClearSign contracts & applications ), bringing unparallelled security to web3 operations.
  • All interactions with web3 apps on BSC can be achieved through the Public API . Please refer to the documentation here: Ledger Enterprise API .

Improved management & segregation of EVM (Ethereum, Polygon, BSC) accounts

The standard approach to managing accounts on EVM networks is to generate the same public address (from a given private key) across all these networks, so that users can seamlessly interact with various networks while maintaining a single public address. Moreover, as a custodian managing multiple customers' accounts, it's essential to have an organized and secure system for managing accounts.

Therefore, Ledger Enterprise Administrators now have the flexibility to create accounts with two distinct options:

  • Linked Accounts : These accounts are connected to another account on a different supported EVM network. This means they share the same address (or index), making it easier to manage assets across multiple EVM-compatible chains with a single public address. This is particularly useful for institutions requiring seamless cross-chain interactions and simplified account recovery in case of funds sent to the wrong network.
  • Unlinked Accounts : For institutions that prefer to have unique, unused addresses (for added privacy and security) and for custodians that need to segregate each of their clients' funds, we also offer the option to create accounts with a new, unshared address. This means the public address of the account is not associated with any other account on another supported EVM network.

Note that prior to this feature, all your Ledger Enterprise accounts follow the second option (unlinked accounts), meaning that they all have a unique address that is not shared by another account on another network.

NFT Gallery: portfolio value

We're excited to announce the latest improvement to our NFT gallery feature on our Vault! You can now view the floor price of your NFTs. This feature will enable you to track the minimum price that your NFTs are being traded for in the market. You’ll also be able to see the overall balance and quantity of your NFT collection, which will be displayed on the NFT Gallery page. This balance is kept distinct and not included in the overall balance section which is featured at the top of your account.

Moreover, you can now click on any NFT token in your collection, and it will take you to a new page that displays its characteristics. This feature will provide you with more detailed information about your NFTs, including their properties, quantity and token standard, as well as links to open markets.

Stake MATIC directly from your Ledger Enterprise Platform

We are happy to announce that you can now generate yield on your idle MATIC assets by staking them directly from your Ledger Enterprise platform.

Staking MATIC brings many benefits, including:

  • High yield : Polygon leverages (D)PoS (Delegated Proof of Stake) as its consensus mechanism. There are up to 100 validators ensuring the security of the Polygon network, and any MATIC holder can become a delegator by bonding their assets to their preferred validator. By doing so, delegators can earn up to 5-6% APR (i.e. 3% adj.).
  • Low risk : Polygon manages delegations in a trustless fashion, via a robust set of smart contracts. Additionally, staking via Ledger Enterprise empowers you to review your staking operations in a meaningful fashion on trusted display thanks to our ClearSign framework on supported smart contracts.
  • Simplicity & scalability : you can use Ledger Enterprise to stake directly on Polygon Staking applications, from the UI. Should you want to automate your staking workflows to scale your operations, you can also leverage our Public API to perform your delegations and withdrawals programmatically. You can find out more about our API here .

January 2023 - Version 4.16.0: Staking on the Solana blockchain

January 2023 - Version 4.16.0

Staking on the Solana blockchain

This first release note of 2023 is an exciting one! We're happy to announce that it is now possible to conduct Solana staking operations directly on the Ledger Enterprise platform.

There are many benefits of staking Solana with Ledger Enterprise. The process is:

  • Simple, yet rewarding : Staking Solana on Ledger Enterprise only requires a few clicks to generate up to 5.5% APY. You will be able to manage all of your staking positions in one place without needing prior knowledge of the network and with no extra cost.
  • Secured & Low risk : Protect against mismanagement of funds by having staking transaction checks at a hardware level before signing. This will enforce that only your Vault account retains control and receives the rewards. Additionally, slashing risks are fully mitigated by our validator partners, thus enabling institutional staking with security and peace of mind.
  • Flexible and scalable : You can manage as many on-chain staking positions as you need from just one account on the LE platform. This allows you to stake more without undelegating your previous staking position and partially withdraw staking positions so you don’t lose time or rewards. It also lets you manage with ease new restrictive regulations, by tracking precisely all your end-user stakes as one on chain address. This implementation is even possible via API, if you are looking for scaling solana staking as user demand grows.
