Today we’re going to see Ledger Nano S supported coins liest including ERC20 tokens. It’s very important to know whether your cryptocurrency is supported by this hardware wallet or not. Though Ledger Nano devices such Nano X, Blue and S support all prominent cryptocurrencies but still there are some coins who are in queue.
Since all Ledger hardware wallets support same number of coins, but their storage capacity varies, therefore this list of Ledger Nano supported coins is for all Ledger wallets including Ledger Nano X, Ledger Nano S and Blue.
Ledger Nano S is one of the best hardware wallets available out there. With no time, it’s become first choice of cryptocurrency investors. Since cryptocurrencies have gathered media attention, their demand is skyrocketing. Majority of people are seeing it as a quick way to get rich.
Yes, many have become millionaires by doing so, but now it could be difficult. However, some smart investors still can earn significant profit. As of now, in my opinion, to earn real money from these digital assets, one has to hold his/her coins for long time.
Trading is indeed a best way to earn real profits but it’s not everyone’s a cup of tea.
It’s obvious that an exchange is not a good option for long term holding. Paper wallet is a good alternative but the sweeping charges make it less likable. I paid $26 or ₹1700 to sweep a private key that had Bitcoin worth $150 or ₹10000.
Do you think charges were reasonable?
So we left with only one option and that is cryptocurrency hardware wallet. A hardware wallet lets you store Bitcoins and other altcoins and you can directly spend your coins from that wallet. So far it’s the best and safest way to secure crypto assets.
A Bitcoin hardware wallet costs you money but it stores your coins with highest level of security. I think you already aware of 5 best hardware wallets and now you’ve chosen Ledger Nano S.
First I appreciate your choice because it’s indeed a best affordable and secure hardware wallet.
The main advantage of hardware wallet over paper wallet is that in a single hardware wallet you can store multiple coins, up to 22 in Ledger Nano case. In this post, I’ll be showing you a list of Ledger Nano S supported coins or cryptocurrencies.
Before buying a hardware wallet, you should know that which cryptocurrencies are supported by your hardware wallet. Probably, you’re buying a hardware wallet to store Bitcoins but always buy a cryptocurrency hardware wallet that supports altcoins too.
Because when you start knowing more about these virtual assets you start investing in others too. So in future if you’d invest in other coins (or already own) too then you’d be able to transfer them to your wallet.
I did a research before buying Ledger Nano S and found it’s one of the best hardware wallets that support altcoins like Litecoin, Ripple, Ehtereum, Bitcoin Cash and the like. After using it for more than 2 years, I can say my decision was right.
Now it’s competing with Trezor, first hardware wallet that cryptocurrency market has seen. Ledger’s security is almost equal to the Trezor and its price tag is luring customers.
Ledger Nano S supports many prominent cryptocurrencies like Zcash, Bitcoin, Bitcoin Cash, Bitcoin Gold, Ehtereum, Ethereum Classic, Litecoin, and Ripple, name a few.
Ledger supported coins list is very vast, it supports over 1185 digit assets including ERC20 tokens. And Ledger team actively works to add more coins support. But, for your information, you can store up to 22 coins at the same time in Ledger Nano S and up to 100 in its successor model Ledger Nano X.
After that limit, you’ll need to uninstall an existing wallet to install a new one.
Note: Your coins remain intact when you uninstall an app.
Ledger Nano X (successor), Nano S and Blue are designed in a such way that anyone even non-techie can use them readily. You can read Ledger Nano S review post to know more about it or you can read how to buy Ledger wallet from official website of Ledger wallet.

We’ll keep updating above list of Ledger Nano S supported coins or cryptocurrencies. You can come back to this page to see updated list.
Ledger hardware wallet has also started supporting Ethereum tokens like ERC20 tokens. Ledger supports almost all famous ERC20 tokens.
No doubt, as of now, Ledger Nano S is one of the best options to store cryptocurrencies safely. Currently, Ledger Nano S supported coins list contains 1100 cryptocurrencies and tokens and in future it’ll be adding more virtual currencies.
Nano S and its successor Ledger Nano X are available on official website of Ledger Wallet for $69 (₹4797) and $139 (₹9580) respectively globally excluding custom charges, if applicable.
It has also combo offer in which you’ll get both Ledger Nano S and X for $174 (₹12116). This way you can keep one device as a backup.
I’d paid €59 (product price) +€60 (international delivery charges)+€34 (Customs charges) ($172 or ₹12000) to order it from India. If you see delivery charges then you’ll realize that delivery charges are more than the actual product cost.
However, that time (in 2017) I still saved around $15 or ₹900 because this product was also available on Amazon at the cost of ₹13000 INR or $206. Instead of ordering it from Amazon, I’ve purchased it from Ledger Wallet website and this way I’ve saved around ₹900 or $15. And at the top it ensured me that I’ve received an authentic device.
What’s good for you now is that the company has started providing free shipping anywhere in the world. Now you’ll only need to pay product cost plus custom charges, if applicable.

Note: Though Ledger supported coins list contains 1100+ coins but the number of apps you can install may vary depending upon the apps you install and hardware you own for example stand alone apps such as Bitcoin occupy more space. After installing 7 stand alone apps in Nano S, I got insufficient space warning.
