Send crypto assets

You can send crypto assets from your accounts in the Ledger Live application to a recipient address. Use your Ledger device to verify and approve the transaction.

  Security tip

Always send a small amount first. Then verify that the transaction was properly received on the recipient address before proceeding to send larger amounts. If there's a doubt whether a transaction has gone through, simply check back a few minutes later.

Before you begin

  • Get the Ledger device that manages the account to debit.
  • Check that the right app is installed on your device.
    Ex: install the Bitcoin app to send Bitcoin.

Enter transaction details

  1. Tap the Transact tab at the bottom of the app.
  2. Tap Send.
  3. Choose the Account to debit.
  4. Tap Scan QR Code or manually enter the Recipient address.
    For optimal security, always make sure to double-check addresses.
  5. Enter the Amount of the crypto asset to send, or its countervalue*. 
  6. Tap Continue.
