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.
