Ledger Live

How Ledger Live blasted beyond $65M staked ETH in less than 2 months with Kiln

Ledger is the leading platform for digital assets and Web3 security, with over 20% of the world’s crypto secured through Ledger devices. 

Ledger has built a variety of products and services which enable individuals and companies to securely buy, store, swap, stake and manage crypto assets. This includes the Ledger hardware wallets line with more than 6 million units already sold in more than 180 countries.

Since November 2022, Ledger has offered users to stake ETH from their devices through Kiln’s staking product suite and Ledger Live, the one-stop shop to manage all Web3 assets, secured by Ledger.

We’re thrilled to have Kiln integrated into the Ledger Live app. The Merge brought new opportunities for staking on the Ethereum ecosystem, and now with Kiln we’re excited to offer truly secure staking to millions of users.

Ledger Live users can now easily deploy their own validators, all while benefiting from the protection of Ledger’s legendary security.”



Integrating staking is hard, especially within an existing product.
On average, it takes 1 to 4 months for a company to launch a staking offer based on our industry standards. Additional time and resources are also needed to maintain existing protocols and support new ones.

Furthermore, offering staking for Ethereum comes with its own singularities, making ETH staking even more complex. Unlike delegated Proof-of-Stake protocols, ETH can only be staked in batches of 32 units, meaning a new validator must be deployed for each new batch. Without an automated deployment solution, the nodes need to be set up manually, creating friction for users and monopolizing internal resources, especially at scale.

Besides, when offering non-custodial ETH staking without an embedded commission system, there is the risk of not getting paid as rewards accumulate in wallets controlled by users.

The staking solution for Ledger also had to respect and fit the highest security standards so as not to create vulnerabilities.
