Ledger Live: Now Supporting HBAR via The HBAR Foundation

Ledger officially began supporting HBAR in February 2020 via Ledger S, S+, and X consumer hardware wallets. Since the announcement, many HBAR accounts have been created by device holders and managed using third-party wallet software, such as HashPack and MyHbar Wallet. 

A consistent request from the Hedera / HBAR community is the ability to use their Ledger hardware wallet with its accompanying first-party software, Ledger Live.

In response to this request, we’re excited to announce that the HBAR Foundation has partnered with Ledger to deliver HBAR support for Ledger Live Desktop. Ledger Live Mobile support is coming soon.

What can you do with Ledger Live?

Ledger Live lets you manage Hedera accounts and HBAR secured by Ledger S, S+, and X hardware wallets. The application offers a simple onboarding experience when setting up a new Ledger hardware device, and even lets existing HBAR holders import their Hedera account(s) with just a few clicks. You can even buy HBAR on Ledger Live via credit card or wire transfer.

Ledger Live lets users manage their accounts on Hedera, alongside accounts on other networks, such as Bitcoin and Ethereum, in a unified application. Whether online or offline, users can check their balances and portfolio value in real-time based on market prices.  When the device is connected to your desktop, it also supports secure transactions with on-screen guidance and settlement confirmations.

Looking to the future with Ledger

The HBAR Foundation team is continuing to work with Ledger to further integrate the Hedera ecosystem into Ledger’s products and services — this includes support for fungible and non-fungible tokens minted using the Hedera Token Service and integration into the Ledger Live mobile application.
