Can I participate in Crowdloans with my Ledger Device?

Unfortunately, you cannot.

The module to participate in crowdloan currently is not supported by the Kusama and the Polkadot Ledger apps. The users who will try to participate in the crowdloans with their Ledger devices will get an error message stating “not supported”.

Even if that module for crowdloans will be supported in the future, we advise you not to participate as your reward token may be at risk.

If you will participate you need to make sure that the parachain candidate gives you the option to select a different address to receive your contribution reward tokens and use that option to direct the reward to a non-Ledger account. If the parachain candidate sends their tokens to the contributing account and that account is on Ledger, these tokens will be inaccessible.
