What are the benefits of using WalletConnect with Ledger Live?
We recommend you to use WalletConnect with Ledger Live to get access to DApps for the following reasons:
It doesn’t matter what the type of dapp is that you are trying to access: desktop, gaming, mobile or browser, you will never be disheartened.
More interestingly, the protocol is compatible with all the signing methods required by your dapp.
Decentralized messaging system
With the Waku network, the protocol lets you not be dependent on centralized servers for the relaying of messages.
The protocol allows you to establish as many sessions as required without requiring you to set multiple pairings. Instead, only one pairing is enough to meet your purpose.
Again, there will be no issue for you because of multiple sessions at a time. The API provided is sufficiently flexible.
No chain switching
Lets you get connected to a particular wallet using one or more chains at a time and send transactions to multiple chains simultaneously. And, you can do all of these without switching between chains.
To sum up, WalletConnect offers you the best ever user experience when it comes to accessing the DApps. However, we’re not saying that you shouldn’t try any other protocol and that shouldn’t be our motto as well. You can always try to do something different; who knows you won’t be more comfortable with that?
