What is the Ledger Connect kit?

Estimated reading time: 2 minutes

The Ledger Connect Kit lets you connect your DApps to Ledger hardware wallets. It has two components:

  • Ledger Connect, that makes it easy to connect your Nano to Web3 directly from your browser.
  • Ledger Live which is a mobile and desktop application working as hardware wallet synchronization manager and allowing Ledger users to buy, swap, grow, and manage their digital assets from the security of their hardware wallet.
Note
  • Ledger Connect will prevail when compatible, as it is introduced to more and more blockchains. Ledger Live will be used in other cases.
  • The Connect your App packages will no longer be maintained.

Platforms

  • Ledger Connect: Will be available to everyone by the end of the year on Safari for all Apple devices (requires iOS16+ or MacOS 12+). Support for other desktop browsers will be added in Q1 2023.

  • Ledger Live mobile app: Native mobile apps and other browsers on iOS and Android will trigger the Ledger Live app using a WalletConnect deeplink. Both Ledger Live on iOS and Android can also be used to connect on desktop via the WalletConnect QRcode.

  • Ledger Live desktop app: Used as a fall back on desktop browsers until Ledger Connect support is added, and for USB connections.

Blockchains

Ledger Connect Kit supports:

  • Ledger Connect: Ethereum, Polygon, Solana
  • Ledger Live app: Ethereum, Polygon & BSC

No maintenance required

The code is designed to be loaded at runtime from a CDN so that the logic and UI can be updated as we release new updates without the wait for wallet libraries and DApps updating package versions and releasing new builds.
