Ledger Live and Ledger Nano S

This document describes how to set up a Ledger Nano S hardware wallet with the Ledger Live software.

NOTE: While Solana tools are fully integrated with the Ledger Nano S device, and the Solana App can be installed on the Nano S using Ledger Live, adding and managing wallet accounts currently requires use of our command-line tools. Integration with Ledger Live to use Solana wallet accounts on Ledger Live will be available in the future.

Users may use a Ledger Nano S with the Solana command line tools.
