Earny, a retail application, has published a survey on 100 million items bought by Americans from November 2017 to February 2018. The results show the bestsellers in every state; in Nevada, the most popular item is Ledger Nano S Hardware Wallet.
It’s no surprise that the Ledger Nano S is leading the hardware wallet race. The Nano S is cheaper than other wallets ($99) and supports many cryptocurrencies including Bitcoin, Ethereum, Ethereum Classic, Bitcoin Cash, Bitcoin Gold, Dash, Litecoin, NEO, Qtum, Stellar Lumens, Stratis, Ripple and Zcash. Almost every cryptocurrency wallet review rates it as number 1, followed by Trezor, KeepKey and others.

Nevada: The Crypto-Friendly State
In June 2017, Nevada banned taxes on the use of blockchain, hence making it easier for crypto users to live in the state. This year, a hotel in Las Vegas “D Las Vegas”, started accepting Bitcoins to pay for hotels, meals and gambling. However, customers have to first convert BTC to cash from a Bitcoin ATM before using it for gambling. The hotel’s owner, Derek Stevens, said that he heard about cryptocurrency in the casino, “They [Tech workers] all were showing me their Bitcoin, you know, on their phone, and were like, ‘Man, we wish we could spend it’.”
Redditors are also using the platform to promote crypto development in Las Vegas. CoinFlip recently opened Bitcoin ATMs at Lotus of Siam, Tea Space Sunset Park, District One, Rustica Pizzaria, Ohms 2 Vapor, Chatime and Heart Attack Grill. Last month, Blockchains, LLC. bought 67,125 acres land in Nevada industrial park, worth almost $175 million. Some news outlets called this a mysterious act since the company is new in the crypto environment.
Interestingly, the company’s website only states that it “develops and cultivates concepts, partnerships, and businesses backed by blockchain technology.” The Nevada Independent wrote that the marketing director refused to give more details and said that “information about the company and future plans will be forthcoming”.
