MultiversX (EGLD)

Elrond rebranding

Elrond transforms and rebrands into MultiversX. Elrond will progressively be rebranded in Ledger Live to MultiversX with the renaming of the Elrond app to MultiversX app and renaming the asset. The ticker EGLD will remain. Learn more 

This article will describe how to install the Elrond app on your Ledger device to send and receive EGLD and Elrond Standard Digital Tokens (ESDT) tokens in Ledger Live.

Before you start

MultiversX Guarded accounts

  • MultiversX added a new feature to have guarded accounts. This feature means that for each transaction the user wants to send, he will require a co-signature from the account guardian. Users can choose to enable/disable this feature in the settings of Multiverx Wallet or xPortal Wallet.
  • Ledger Live does not support guarded accounts at the moment. Users won't be able to broadcast any transaction if they have a guarded account. However, they still can add their accounts and check the correct balance.

Install the Elrond app on your Ledger device

  1. Open Ledger Live and navigate to the My Ledger tab.
