Before you start

  • Make sure to update Ledger Live to the latest version via this link.

    Your Ledger device displays Application is ready.
  6. In MetaMask, click the round colored icon, select Connect Hardware Wallet > Ledger, and click Continue.

 Which Ethereum account should I select in Metamask?

    • Your SGB coins have been distributed to the same Ethereum account you registered for the Flare (Spark) airdrop.
    • You can find which account was registered by looking up your XRP address on XRPscan and navigating to the Flare tab.
