Stellar (XLM)

 Stellar (XLM) now requires Ledger Live version 2.34.4 and above.

  • After the recent Protocol 18 upgrade, Stellar (XLM) will require Ledger Live version 2.34.4 and above to be functional.

  • There is no fix for Ledger Live Mobile at the moment. Our engineering team is working hard to deploy it as soon as possible.

  • To manage Stellar (XLM) in Ledger Live, please update Ledger Live Desktop through the notification banner or download the latest version.

Install the Stellar app on your Ledger device to manage your lumens (XLM) in Ledger Live. The Stellar app is developed and supported by Ledger. Check the Stellar wallet page to learn more.

Before you start

Install the Stellar app

  1. Open My Ledger in Ledger Live.
  2. Connect and unlock your Ledger device.
  3. If asked, allow My Ledger to access your device.
  4. Find Stellar in the app catalog.
  5. Click the Install button of the app.
    • Your device will display Processing...
    • The app installation is confirmed.

  Deposit to exchange

Most exchanges require you to enter a memo to identify your account when depositing. Carefully follow the deposit instructions of your exchange. Make sure you use the right Memo Type and enter the Memo exactly as instructed.

  When you send funds from an exchange to a Ledger Stellar account, you don't need a memo. You can enter a random number.

You can learn more about the memo tags here.

Adding Stellar tokens in Ledger Live

Starting from Ledger Live Desktop 2.45 and Ledger Live Mobile 3.5 it becomes possible to manage XLM token USDC directly in Ledger Live. First, you need to add a trust line for the USDC token. You can do that in Ledger Live.

Adding trust line

  1. On your XLM account page in Ledger Live, click Add asset.


  2.  Choose an asset: USDC and click Continue (make sure your Ledger device is connected to your PC and the Stellar app is open).


  3. Review the transaction on the Ledger device and in Ledger Live and confirm.


  4. Once the transaction was broadcasted, you can start to send and receive USDC on your XLM account.


  5. Once you receive your USDC, it will appear as a token on the XLM parent account
