Getting a nice, secure, and reputable hardware wallet is necessary if you want to sleep well knowing that your bitcoin and cryptocurrency investments are secure, and a Ledger Nano S or a Ledger Nano X is definitely a great choice. But, where do you buy one in the United States?
Buying from local stores
Since Ledger hardware wallets are pretty famous worldwide, it might be a bit uncommon to find some for sale on brick and mortar stores. But, should you actually buy from them?
The answer: No. While it’s difficult to fake a Ledger wallet or to physically alter one, it’s still technically possible.
Buying from Amazon, eBay, and other websites
While there are definitely reputable Amazon sellers, eBay sellers, and online sellers in general that are selling Ledger Nano S’s and Ledger Nano X’s, we still suggest against buying from these sites, just to be completely sure.
Why? While the chances might be a bit low, there’s still chances of certain sellers’ Ledger wallet inventory to be mixed up with other sellers’ inventory, causing you to possibly be sent a used or tampered Ledger device.
Where should I purchase them instead?
If you want to be 100% secure that you actually bought a brand new, legitimate, unopened, and untampered Ledger Nano S or Ledger Nano X, the best place to buy your hardware wallet is still on the Official Ledger Website, shop.Ledger.com. That way, you’re severely decreasing the risks of your device being fake, used, or tampered with. Save yourself the future headaches of you wondering if you purchased a nice and legitimate Ledger hardware wallet.
