Install Ethereum (ETH) app on your Ledger device

If you already have the Ethereum (ETH) app installed, you can skip this part. If not, follow the steps below:

  1. Connect your Ledger device to a computer and unlock it.
  2. In Ledger Live, navigate to My Ledger.
  3. Confirm that you allow My Ledger to access your device. You can do that by clicking both buttons on your device simultaneously. 
  4. Go back to Ledger Live. In My Ledger, head over to the App catalog and search for Ethereum (ETH).
  5. Click Install.

The Ethereum (ETH) app is installed on your Ledger device. Now let’s add it to Ledger Live.

Add a Neon EVM (NEON) account to Ledger Live

  1. In the left sidebar menu, go to Accounts.
  2. Click Add account.
  3. Choose Neon EVM (NEON) from the drop-down list.

  4. Click Continue.
  5. Connect your device to Ledger Live and unlock it.
  6. Open the Ethereum app on your device.
  7. Click Add account.

That’s it, the Neon EVM (NEON) account is added to your Portfolio.

Receive NEON
  1. Connect your Ledger device to your computer and unlock it.
  2. Open the Ethereum app on your device.
    Your Ledger displays: Application is ready
  3. Open Ledger Live and click Receive.
  4. In the drop-down list, select NEON and click Continue.
    Your Ledger device displays: Verify address.
  5. Use the right button to scroll through the address. Make sure the address that shows on your device screen is identical to the one in Ledger Live.
  6. If all looks good, press both buttons and then again press both buttons one more time to verify the address.
  7. Copy the address and share it with the sender. Ensure that the address does not change after you copy/paste it.

You can send NEON from your account, using a Ledger device to verify and approve transactions.

  6. Verify and approve the transaction on your Ledger device—press both buttons simultaneously to Approve. Press both buttons simultaneously to Accept and send the transaction.

The transaction is sent. Your account balance will be updated when the blockchain confirms the transaction.
