The company in its blog post has noted that the validation process for third-party apps will be simplified with more clear guidelines allowing developers to follow the comprehensive guidance of security good practices.
The new application will be available for installation on Ledger devices through Ledger Live and initially, the coins will not be directly compatible with the native app and customers will have to use a compatible third-party wallet to perform transactions.
“Ledger Live will gradually incorporate full support for third-party applications to enable Ledger users to not only install, but also transact with these new crypto assets directly from Ledger Live,”
