Hcash (HSR)

  HSR termination

  • The swap period from HSR to HC ended February 8th, 2019.
  • HSR service on Ledger Live is terminated from February 28th, 2019.
  • Transactions and adding accounts will not be possible after the termination.
  • Uninstalling the HSR app from your device in My Ledger remains possible.

Install the Hcash app on your Ledger device to manage Hcash (HSR) with Ledger Live. The Hcash app is developed and supported by Ledger and works on the Ledger Nano S and Ledger Blue devices.

Before you start


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

The Hcash app can export your extended public key (xpub) to web apps in a U2F compatible web browser (Chrome, Opera or Firefox). The xpub is privacy-sensitive information, as all public addresses can be generated from it.

Public key exports by default require manual approval on the device to prevent inadvertent sharing of your public addresses. This setting can be configured as follows:

  1. Open the Hcash app.
  2. Navigate to Settings > Public key export approval.
  3. Choose one of two options:
    • Manual approval (default): public key exports require a confirmation on the device.
    • Auto approval: public key exports are automatically approved.
Hcash address format

Hcash addresses start with an H. This is the only address format.

  Address privacy

Hcash transactions are public information. Do not re-use your addresses for optimal privacy. Ledger Live automatically generates new addresses and keeps track of your previous ones. Previous addresses do remain valid, but they don't offer an optimal level of privacy.
