Hcash (HSR)

  HSR to HC swap

Please swap your HSR for HC before February 28, 2019. HC is not supported on Ledger devices.
Swap instructions are available here.

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 the Manager in Ledger Live.
  2. Connect and unlock your device.
  3. If asked, allow the manager on 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.
