πŸ”Use Ledger hardware wallet

This guide is for Ledger Nano S, S+, and X.

Introduction

A Ledger device is a hardware wallet that is considered one of the most secure ways to store your digital assets. A Ledger device uses an offline, or "cold storage," method of generating private keys, making it a preferred method for many crypto users. This guide will help you to connect your Ledger device to the Secret Network's CLI and GUI wallets. The wallets enable you to send and receive SCRT as well as stake/delegate SCRT with the Ledger device.

Prerequisites

2. If you don't, or you using your Ledger device for the first time, you should check Ledger's Getting Started guide.

3. We also advise you to check your Ledger device's genuineness and upgrade your firmware to the newest one available.

4. Have a machine with Ledger Live installed.

5. Have the latest version of our latest binaries installed in case you use Secret CLI. You can get it here.

Fixing Connection Issues

  • Prepare your Linux host to work with Ledger

Some users may not have their Ledger device recognized by their Linux host. To fix this issue implement the fix for connection issues on Linux from the Ledger support page

wget -q -O - https://raw.githubusercontent.com/LedgerHQ/udev-rules/master/add_udev_rules.sh | sudo bash
  • MacOS

You will need at least MacOS 10.14 Mojave, which introduced the Security feature of allowing Full Disk Access, which Ledger Live needs in order to enable the --ledger flag in secretcli. Refer to the MacOS section in the Ledger support page.
