After having created Coinhouse, a cryptocurrency exchange marketplace, Éric Larchevêque et Thomas France start Ledger in 2015. Their objective is to secure the holding and transactions in crypto-currencies for individual users by designing hardware wallets.
In March 2017, Ledger raises €7,000,000 in a funding round led by MAIF, a French mutual insurance. Part of that money is used to invest a total of €10,000,000 in the construction of a factory in Vierzon, a city in the center of France, after having relied for a long time on China for its production.
In 2018, Ledger announces a partnership with Blockchain.com, which sells software wallets, to create a physicial cryptocurrency wallet similar to the Ledger Nano S, the Blockchain Lockbox. It also launches a new and more secure version of its desktop and mobile apps
