Today, ELLIPAL launched its newest firmware: Version 2.0. This newly developed firmware will give users around the world an even more secure air-gapped hardware wallet. This security update will make ELLIPAL even more fitting to the name “Next Generation Hardware Wallet”, providing the best secure wallet solution to every crypto holders.
Enhance the security of hardware wallet
In version 2.0, we added a few enhancements to prevent some potential threats, in particular, the supply chain attack on hardware modification and changing. After this update, new users now do not have to worry about attacks during shipping of the wallet. For current users, if your hardware wallet is kept away safely, you do not have to upgrade your firmware as your key and crypto are still secure. On the other hand, if you use the wallet frequently or if others could easily access it, we suggest you to upgrade the system to version 2.0.
We would like to say thank you to Charles GUILLEMET, Chief Security Officer of Ledger for giving us remarkable advice and cooperating smoothly with ELLIPAL. We are glad to have worked together with you and looking forward to building a better product for the community.
