There are currently multiple ways to interact with the LTO Network blockchain using a Ledger hardware wallet: the Official Web Wallet and third-party wallets like stakely.io and an installable CLI Wallet.

Connecting Ledger (Official Web Wallet)

In order to connect your Ledger device in the wallet, connect your Ledger Device to your computer and open the LTO Network app. Make sure it's connected to your browser and go to https://wallet.lto.network/ and click on Ledger Device. This will open up the wallet for your account.

Interface

The interface is exactly the same as described on the Official Web UI page. The only addition while using a Ledger device is that it requires to sign transactions by physically touching your Ledger device.

Signing transactions

On-chain actions need to be signed with your keys, and will therefore need the Ledger to be connected. After you click Send, Lease or any other action, it will prompt you to sign with the Ledger device.

In case you want to sign the transaction, acknowledge the signing process on your Ledger device with "accept and sign".
