Ledger team notes that “Your ETH private keys remain securely stored on your Ledger device – this remains unaffected.”
Someone said: “Of course your ETH is safe — but the Ledger Live node isn’t in sync now. I’m 99% sure you’ll be able to move your funds off to another wallet ie Trust or MEW,” to which Ledger responded with: “Making transactions *should* still be possible – balances and your transaction history wouldn’t get updated within Ledger Live though.”
Ethereum in the news
The crypto market is looking great today with Bitcoin being able to smash through $60k once again. The Bitcoin and crypto market price has surged above $2 trillion and took the market into the spotlight once again.
Both Bitcoin and Ethereum are surging like crazy and today BTC is trading above $60k and ETH is also trading in the green and the digital asset is priced at the moment of writing this article.
There are all kinds of debates about the battle between Bitcoin and Ethereum.
Laura Shin interviewed Mark Cuban on her Podcast ‘Unchained’ about how Ethereum may be a better store of value than Bitcoin and this is what he said.
“I think the applications leveraging smart contracts and extensions on Ethereum will dwarf bitcoin. Bitcoin, right now, has evolved to be primarily a store of value, and it’s very difficult to use it for anything else. You really have to work a lot harder on bitcoin than you do on Ethereum.”
