"Do not buy hardware wallet from a 3rd party seller" It's a well-known security guideline for newbies. I wonder though, does it apply for 3rd party sellers that are listed on the official website of the product? E.g. Ledger reseller? If not safe, and you still decide to buy from there, how can you ensure the device hasn't been tampered with?


1 Answer 1


For Ledger, you SHOULD be ok buying from an authorized reseller, although it is usually recommended to buy from Ledger itself directly.

Ledger Live will tell you if it is a genuine device or not. Also make sure you generating a new key when you first use your device.
