I just bought a Ledger Nano X, is it good?

It can work with Bluetooth as well a cable. Is it a good device to store my cryptos secure?

Using Bluetooth may not be the most secure way to connect to the device or what do you think?

it always depends whether you hold 0.1BTC for your daily spending (then bluetooth might be more convenient and presents almost no risk to consider) or whether you hold 100BTC as your retirement fund :)

Bluetooth spoofing is a thing. I would not use it in a public space.
At home, unless you are in the FBI most wanted list (or your neighbor is) you shouldn’t worry too much.
I prefer Trezor anyway.

As I said, Bluetooth is not 100% secure. But it’s fine for 99.999% of users.

The Nano seems a bit fragile to me, thin plastic, cheap buttons and low assembly precision.
The Blue model at the contrary is very nice (and more expensive) but it is a rarity these days.

no one would probably use it on third party computer, would he? :D

trezor T is far the best on the market

There is no dfference between using a wire and bluetooth wrt to security. HW wallet signs the tx (that is the moment when private key has to be exposed in device's memory) on an air-gappped part of the electronics inside. The I/O part of the device nly transmits the signed message.

The most important thing to prevent any spoofing is to always verify the amounts/destination address on the device's screen!

I have a nano X, a nano S, a nano S plus, a Trezor one and a Trezor T (I'm a developer and need to test on all of them).

All of them are exactly the same for 99% os use cases, most people won't be able to use them at their max capabilities and about security the X is as secure as most of them (there is no 100% secure in technology). Bluetooth is also secure and the only way someone could steal your coins using Bluetooth is only if you signed it from the device so always check what you are signing.

It's okay until one of their "partners" gets hacked and all your information is leaked online for the world to see.

That's the main issue with following KYC ;D (and the reason I use fake data when buying stuff). Luckily no hacker can guess the public key who belongs to the bought hardware wallet
I got my ledger the last day, all is working well. You setup your code yourself. But would that mean that the company Ledger knows your public key if all comes to all?

why not... I just needed a hardware wallet and found threads already here I read. I didn't see the issue discussed in post #13 addressed anywhere!

The device comes not initialized, so without a key. You have to create it.

Nano X is good, but Ledger doesn't mention explicitly that Bluetooth connection works only with mobile devices. You need to use a cable to use it with your desktop.
Trezor is better for privacy, but Trezor doesn't support TRX (Tron) network, and a significant part "crypto finance" people use Tron for transferring USDT.


P.S. Always buy a second hardware wallet, because your wallet can break.
