Running of out space

in STEMGeeks3 months ago

         So it finally happened.

         I ran out of space on my Ledger Nano S. I can't remember the last time I had a device that only had 156kb of storage. It almost feels like the floppy disk of 21st century.

         The five apps, from left to right, are: XLM, BTC, Doge, LTC, and ADA.

         To clear out some space, I would have to uninstall an app. At first, I thought about the BTC one because I don't move that particular asset very often. Turns out, if you do that, you would also have to get rid of LTC and Doge. I actually move the other assets into the wallet on regular basis, so I would rather not get rid of them.

         In the end, I chose to remove the Doge app on my Nano S. It wasn't a lot, but it was enough to give some slack for future updates. This why a few months ago, I chose to get a Nano X on sale. It's nice to have everything in one place without the need to juggle all the apps.

         At 1.8Mb, the Nano X is hardly a giant. It reminds me of the 3 1/2 inch floppies. I have 9 apps on there with plenty of room to space. As much as I would like to say that's plenty, that might not be true in the future.

         It seems unlikely that I will have many more apps installed on my Nano X than I currently do, but I guess time will tell. I mean, I haven't bothered with the ETH app because I haven't bought any in a long time. Diversifying is not bad in itself, but it does dilute funds into multiple assets which can hurt gains. So, I guess the trick is finding the right balance.

I was playing around with my Nano X some more yesterday. There is still so much I need to learn about it. I am pretty impressed with it so far. Plus the price was great, so I can't complain at all! That is crazy how little storage they actually have.

Glad you are liking it.

I never used a Ledger wallet so dont know how it works. I thought that there is an option for unlimited but that's not the case. Thanks for sharing this info.

You can store "unlimited" amount of asset. But, you can only access as many as the interface allows at a given time.

I remember the floppy disks, how crazy. Now you can store everything in one place

The storage still isn't very big, but it's not like they need to be huge for their purposes.

Floppy disk, funny. I have the same one.

It's still useful. Just not as convenient.

I started out with the S, but recently got an X. They make a good primary/backup set, especially since the X relies on a battery. You can remove and re-add apps without putting your assets at risk. Which I did until I got the X.

Yeah that's my set up with the primary and backup.

Ha, funny

What is?

I never bought one, so it's amusing to read how small they are.

Do you hear that often?

No, actually not, but it really sounds 1990s

Yeah. It's pretty amazing how tiny they are and how much more security they provide.

damn whales.

It's like Moby Dick all over again.

Brace yourselves: size jokes are coming :)

Took longer than expected.

Bang, I did it again... I just rehived your post!
Week 41 of my contest just can now check the winners of the previous week!

To which I can highly relate; no wonder I'm yearning for commissions money. (Relevant bit's nearly halfway down in my longest post to date.)
