Ledger Calls Out KuCoin After Hack as Wallet Users Cry Foul

Following the KuCoin hack, hardware wallet manufacturer Ledger went on to advocate for safer storage on its own wallets.

KuCoin assured its users that any stolen funds will be covered by its insurance.
The Hack Highlighted by Ledger for Self-Promotion
Ledger called out the KuCoin hack in a tweet, singling it out as the fourth biggest crypto exchange hack ever. The hardware wallet manufacturer encouraged its followers to avoid storing assets on exchange wallets.

#Kucoin hack is the fourth crypto exchange biggest hack ever!
Coincheck – $534 M MtGox – $460 M BiitGrail – $196 M Kucoin – $150 M
Don't store your assets on an exchange wallet! Keep your crypto safe with Ledger Nano S and Nano X. #notyourkeysnotyourcoins

Ledger is one of the industry’s most popular hardware wallet providers, but the company itself hasn’t had a stellar year.
In July, the company revealed that sensitive customer information was leaked . The security breach exposed users’ contact information and order details including about 1 million email addresses. The company maintained that users’ crypto assets are “safe” and “have never been in peril.”  Still the crypto community was quick to call Ledger out on the hypocrisy, reminding the exchange about the leak of sensitive customer information.

Since you talk about security now…
Are you going to commit to NOT store online the identity of your customers to prevent what happened few months ago with the identities leaked from Your site?
If you legally need to store them, do it offline

One user mentioned that they weren’t informed of the data leak:

I was not informed of the data theft. why? I also wanted to buy a ledger X …. but after this problem I thought about it.
