Ledger and the Past, Present, and Future of Web3 Security and Adoption with Mo El-Sayed

In this episode of From the Blockchain, Ashley (Bored Becky) is joined by guest Mo El-Sayed. Mo is Head of Community & Education at Ledger and one of the hosts of “On The Ledger” Podcast. He is also Co-Founder of NFT Factory Paris. Ledger was launched in 2014, and the company develops infrastructure solutions and security for cryptocurrencies as well as block chain applications for companies and individuals. In this episode, Mo (also known as @Mo_RELS) dives into who Ledger is, what Ledger hardware does, and discusses new product innovation and learning opportunities geared towards mass adoption, safety, and user-friendliness moving into the future. We also learn key differences between “web2 hardware” and “web3 hardware”, and why the nuances are so important looking ahead (and in relation to individual security best practices and safety). This is a great episode for advanced and novice web3, NFT, and crypto participants – and everyone in between!
