Final steps

Important information about creating new XRP accounts

  • The XRP network requires that all new accounts permanently lock 10 XRP to be activated.
  • This requirement is enforced by the XRP network, and not by Ledger. You can learn more about it here.
  • To activate your XRP account, simply send 10 XRP to your Ledger XRP address.
  • The locked amount can only be recovered by deleting your Ledger XRP account. More on this here.

Destination tags

  • It's important to add a destination tag when sending XRP from your Ledger wallet to a crypto exchange.
  • To add a Destination tag when sending to an exchange, enter the Tag given by the exchange. Your Ledger device does not require a specific tag to receive XRP. You can learn more about the tags here.


  • Some exchanges only send to activated addresses. Activate the address by sending at least 10 XRP from another source.
  • Trustlines are not supported in Ledger Live. 
  • The error message Ledger sequence too high occurs if you've waited more than 48 seconds to confirm a transaction in Ledger Live.
