Ledger Live is a user interface app used in conjunction with the Ledger Nano S and Nano X hardware wallets. It is free to download and is available for mobile phones and desktops.
The app allows users to create an ‘account’ for hardware wallet owners to manage their crypto assets. You can buy, send and receive crypto directly from Ledger Live. Further, the app provides real-time balance and price updates and also allows multi account management. It also prompts the user when software updates are available for your hardware wallet.
The setup is quick and easy following prompts as you progress. Once Ledger Live is set up, you can select the relevant dedicated wallets for each cryptocurrency held. Note that whilst the majority of common currencies are supported by Ledger, some cryptocurrencies use third-party wallets. Over 25 coins and over 1250 ERC20 token types are supported altogether. You can set the fiat currency to your choice for example, USD or AUD.
The Ledger Live interface will show you the combined value of your crypto holdings. The app also offers more granular control of the interface for advanced users.
