IOTA Support For Ledger Nano S?

IOTA Support For Ledger Nano S?
A recent announcement on Twitter by IOTA NEWS, the publication revealed that there has been progressing in supporting IOTA on the famous hardware wallet known as the Ledger Nano S. The tweet went out on October 3rd and went on to include the time frame of the next few weeks as to when software development will be completed.
“The development of supporting #IOTA Tokens on the #LedgerNano S wallet has progressed very far. Charlie Varley, IOTA Software Engineer: “We will be looking at Ledger Nano integration over the next few weeks”
Furthermore, investigating the news you can see there is already a GitHub page for developing IOTA support on the Ledger Nano S. On Discord there is an IOTA community which allows developers to contribute their talents to the project. In a report on the development progress, Peter Willemsen the software developer on the project announced to the crypto community that he had finished adding 2 huge features from the ledger.
“We’ve finished 2 major features of the Ledger:
  • API (after weeks of discussions and passing over designs to one-another).
  • The signing of transactions (part of the API as well)
I guess you could say all of the major features we need are done!”
In addition to this, Willemsen said that the next step would be to start testing on the device in a BETA form. He continues:
“This is a huge step in the right direction, and the people who most benefit from this are the users: Imagine having 1 wallet for all your IOTA needs. You download Trinity and use it the way you like it. You plug in your Ledger and install the IOTA app. Trinity sees your ledger and asks you if you want to use your Ledger as a wallet instead. The only thing that needs to be done now before we have a functional Javascript-SDK and API, is getting the bundles to be signed the right way. I still have some difficulties there, but I hope I can fix it in this week. This is probably the last development report before we head into beta”
