Why can't I create a Solana account in Ledger Live?

  • While your Ledger device can store SOL coins and Solana assets, the Ledger Live app does not support Solana accounts yet.
  • To create your first account we recommend using Solflare with your Ledger device.
  • Using Solflare is perfectly safe, all accounts created with your Ledger device through Solflare are secured by your Ledger device.
