Ledger wallet controversy
Recently, the crypto community was shocked by the announcement of leading crypto hardware wallet maker Ledger about rolling out their "recovery service." According to the announcement, the upgrade will allow users to split their seed phrase into three parts and then send it automatically to three separate gadgets in an encrypted form.
This raised major concerns that this upgrade will become an easy target for hackers. Customers began out flowing from Ledger en masse. Seeing this negative effect, Ledger put the release of the recovery service on halt.
However, customers are still out flowing from Ledger to other wallet makers. Many crypto influencers and leaders of popular blockchain platforms criticized Ledger for the upgrade they planned to launch, including founder of Cardano Charles Hoskinson.
