Ledger & RTFKT announce partnership at NFT Paris
During the NFT Paris event, RTFKT was named a flagship partner and announced a partnership with Ledger.

Sébastien Badault, Ledger's VP of Metaverse, discussed the collaboration during a keynote presentation, signalling the beginning of their joint efforts. Together, they aim to develop a comprehensive approach to safety that is critical in today's high-end collector market.
RTFKT stressed the importance of education in securing digital assets safely and emphasized their commitment to providing the necessary education and tools to their growing audience. As a leader in digital on-chain artefacts and phygital fashion, RTFKT is well-positioned to provide education, while Ledger, with its leading security approach in Web3, facilitates the partnership by providing the required information.

Following this limited drop, the partnership produced additional collaborations, each featuring RTFKT Quests that showcased the physical and digital aspects of the collaboration while highlighting the role hardware plays in security.
Owners of RTFKT and Ledger Genesis now have access to a limited edition Nano-case accessory in the form of a super rare silver pendant with the RTFKT logo on the end caps, which comes with a Nano X. This exclusive item is available on [ L ] Market for Clone X and Genesis Pass Holders, further emphasising the importance of hardware in secure self-custody.
