About the Pascal Gauthier Episode

Today we chat with Pascal Gauthier – CEO of Ledger, the Bitcoin and Crypto hardware technology company, who recently celebrated their 5th anniversary. 

In this episode we discuss patience – we cannot expect the worlds financial system to change over night. It also fair to say that security is a primary concern of those inside and outside of the industry, and how Ledger need to stay on top of the cat and mouse game that is security.  Ledger are preparing themselves for the inevitable tokenisation of all the worlds assets, ranging from digital store of value like Bitcoin, and other cryptocurrency, as well as tokenised energy or securities.

We discuss how the end goal is for users to go on their ‘merry crypto journey’ and perform ancillary functions like trading, lending and staking all from the security of the Ledger hardware wallet. 

Ledger are one of the first names you come across once you invest in Bitcoin and crypto, and Pascal is a champion of the space.

About Ledger

Ledger was launched in 2014 by eight experts with complementary backgrounds in embedded security, cryptocurrencies and entrepreneurship, united around the idea of creating secure solutions for blockchain applications. We now have over 130 employees in Paris, Vierzon and San Francisco.

We developed a distinctive operating system (OS) called BOLOS, which we integrate either to a secure chip for the Ledger wallet line, or to a Hardware Security Module (HSM) for various enterprise solutions. So far, Ledger has been the only player in the market to provide this technology.

We aim at securing the new disruptive class of crypto assets: Financial assets like cryptocurrencies or Initial Coin Offerings (ICOs), Data assets like sensors, Internet of Things (IoT) devices or machine to machine, and Digital identities like second factor authentication or passwordless login.
