How to Setup Particl on the Ledger Nano S Hardware Device

What is the Ledger Nano S?

The Ledger Nano S is a hardware wallet, a special type of bitcoin wallet which stores the user’s private keys in a secure hardware device. They have major advantages over standard software wallets: private keys are stored in a secure chip, and cannot be transferred out of the device in plaintext. That means your funds are safe even when connected to an infected or malicious computer or a phishing/scam web page. For these reasons, we highly recommend users to protect their funds by setting up a Ledger Nano S.


Before starting the setup process, make sure you have:

Linux users

Make sure you have added the udev rules to allow device access – see Fix connection issues (under Linux tab) for more info.

If you already have a working Ledger wallet, you can skip this.
