Nimiq in Ledger Nano X

#1

Nano X cannot be supported natively because there is no support for bluetooth over browser. Jeff was planning a different approach. He will probably talk about it in this thread :slight_smile:

Thanks for starting a topic about this, @Richy

To clarify a little bit: the Ledger Nano X will have two different ways to connect to a host device: USB C and Bluetooth. According to conversations with our contacts at Ledger, the USB method should work without problems, just as it does today with the Nano S.

The Bluetooth method is where things get complicated. Since Nimiq is a web-native project, the ideal scenario would be for us to support wireless Bluetooth communication with the Nano X directly from the Safe, but this requires support at the browser level.

Currently there is a draft specification that seems to provide what we need, but is not widely supported in browsers yet, still, it’s likely that we will be looking to provide support for this as soon as possible so that when more browsers support it, we will be ready (and also so that users with browsers that currently support it can use it already).

The official Ledger JS library already provide support for Ledger Nano X with web-ble.
