Security 

Security is obviously a very important factor when it comes to hardware wallets. Nano X aims to offer uncompromising security. Private keys are securely isolated inside the device (CC EAL5 + certificate), which is the same chip used to protect passports and credit cards.

Mobility

As previously mentioned, the Nano X is enabled for Bluetooth connection. This allows you to quickly connect it to the phone in order to spend your Crypto. Just install the Ledger Live Mobile app on your phone and make transactions. All Bluetooth communications are end-to-end encrypted to protect the device in security.

Backup and restore

In case of loss of the device the funds are protected. When you initially set up the Nano X, a 24-word recovery phrase will be created. This allows you to restore funds instantly on any Ledger device.
