Rent on Send and Staking Solana

Ledger Live Mobile 3.18 now takes into account the Rent when making transactions with SOL. This solves the issue users were facing when doing a sendMax or stakeMax. Learn more about Solana's rent here. The fix for Desktop will be available in the coming releases of Ledger Live.

Send tokens across the Solana network

Solana account not funded message


An "Account not funded" warning will appear when sending SOL to a brand new Solana account. It warns you that this account is empty and not yet known by the Solana network . Sending to a non-funded account is perfectly safe, just make sure to double check that the account address is correct then proceed.

Before sending tokens on the Solana blockchain, make sure you have enabled blind signing in the Solana app settings on your Ledger device.

To enable blind signing:

  1. Connect and unlock your Ledger device.
  2. Open the Solana app.
  3. Press the right button to navigate to Settings. Then press both buttons to validate.
  4. In the Blind signing settings, select Yes by pressing both buttons.


  When signing Solana transactions with your Ledger device, you will notice the Pubkey length feature that allows you to set long or short settings:

  • The short setting will display a truncated transaction address and only reveal its beginning and end.
  • The long setting displays the full address.

From a security perspective, Ledger recommends using the long setting so that you have a full overview of the address when verifying a transaction.
