Manage your XRP account

Connect your device
  1. Connect and unlock your Ledger device.
  2. Open the XRP app.
  3. Make sure Browser support is disabled in the app settings.
    XRP app > Settings > Browser support > No.
  4. Close all other applications that connect to your device.
  5. Launch the Ledger Ripple Wallet Ripple on your computer.
  6. The wallet synchronizes and opens. Your XRP balance is displayed.
Receive XRP tokens
  1. Click Receive.
  2. Copy the address.
  3. Share it with the sender of XRP.
  4. When sending to your XRP address from an exchange, you do not need to enter a specific destination tag. Just enter if the field is required by the exchange.


  • An XRP account costs 20 XRP. Simply send a minimum of 20 XRP to open your account. These 20 XRP will remain locked as enforced by the XRP protocol.
  • Trustlines are not supported by the Ledger Ripple Wallet.
Send XRP tokens
  1. Click Send.
  2. Enter the amount, recipient address and network fees.
  3. If you are sending to an exchange that requires you enter a Destination tag, click on advanced mode in the bottom left corner of the application.
  4. Enter the destination tag given by the exchange.
  5. Click Send.
  6. Verify on your device that:
    • the amount is correct.
    • the address you entered is correct.
  7. Confirm the transaction by pressing the right button to sign and broadcast it to the network. Reject the transaction if anything is incorrectly shown on the screen. 


Incorrect transactions or balance

If your transactions or balance are not displayed correctly, try the following:

  1. On Mac, uninstall and reinstall the Ledger Ripple Wallet application.
  2. On Windows, press Ctrl+Shift+A to reset the application data. This does not affect your crypto assets. Your balance should be correct after synchronization.
  3. Click Change node when opening the application. Then replace s2.ripple.com by s1.ripple.com.
Exchange returns your address is invalid

Some exchanges cannot send XRP to an unactivated address, an address that has not yet received 20 XRP to become active. Activate the address by sending at least 20 XRP from another source.

Can not synchronize
If the message Unable to synchronize your wallet is displayed, another application on your computer is preventing the connection to your Ledger device.
  1. Close all other programs.
  2. Disconnect and reconnect your Ledger device.
  3. If it does not work, try to use your Ledger device on another computer to identify the problem.
