Hive really needs an airgap hardware wallet.

I agree. Would be nice to see some more options as far as storing HIVE.

Tron just integrated with Ledger to add the ability to stake TRX, vote for SRs and earn TRX passively through the Ledger Live App.

A lot of people in the Ledger community were outraged and asked why a "shit coin was added rather than a real coin"...

From what I gather, if someone develops the software and sends it to Ledger (probably along with some form of payment), it can get added to the Ledger Live app after they do extensive testing. I'd love to have the ability to store HIVE on a Ledger, vote for witnesses, etc. It's definitely possible.

I just wrote a post about the possibility of an Airgap Hardware wallet using open source code on Raspberry Pi devices. I think this is the way of the future as the markup on Ledgers is pretty steep and a Raspberry Pi costs less than $40 and you can do a million other things with it. Although the fact that you can do a million other things with it is often seen as a bug rather than a feature when you're talking about secure crypto storage. Still, I think the airgap part of that equation is what makes it a superior idea to traditional hardware wallets.
