To use Magic Eden Wallet with your Ledger device, you need to install the appropriate apps on your Ledger hardware wallet. These apps are essential for managing various cryptocurrencies and interacting with cross-chain NFT transactions. This guide provides detailed steps for installing, uninstalling, and updating apps on Ledger devices.

For additional information, you can refer to Ledger's official article.

How apps work on Ledger devices

Your Ledger device stores your private keys, which are necessary to access your cryptocurrency assets. Installing apps allows you to manage different types of crypto assets and interact with NFT platforms like Magic Eden. For example, if you want to work with Bitcoin (BTC), you must have the Bitcoin app installed on your Ledger device.

It's important to remember that Ledger devices have limited storage, and app sizes vary. However, uninstalling apps to free up space does not compromise your private keys or crypto assets, which are securely stored on your device and backed up with your recovery sheet.

Installing apps

To install apps on your Ledger device for use with Magic Eden Wallet, follow these steps:

Open Ledger Live

  • Launch the Ledger Live app on your computer or mobile device.

  • Click on "My Ledger" in the left panel.

Connect your Ledger device

  • Connect and unlock your Ledger device.

  • Authorize "My Ledger" on your device by pressing both buttons simultaneously.

Install the desired apps

  • Browse the "App catalog" in Ledger Live.

  • Find the app you want to install and click the "Install" button.

  • Your Ledger device will display "Processing..." during installation.

  • You can install multiple apps simultaneously by clicking their install buttons.

If there's insufficient storage, uninstall some apps to make room. Note that your crypto assets are not affected by uninstalling apps.

Uninstalling apps

Uninstalling apps from your Ledger device is straightforward and does not affect your crypto assets. To uninstall apps:

Open Ledger Live

  • Click on "My Ledger" in the left panel.

  • Find "Apps installed" to view the apps currently on your device.

Uninstall the Desired apps

  • Find the app to uninstall and click the trash icon (πŸ—‘οΈ).

  • You can uninstall multiple apps by clicking their respective trash icons.

Remember, if an app depends on another (like Ethereum for EVM-based apps), uninstall the dependent app first before removing the main one.

Updating apps

Keeping apps updated ensures compatibility and security. To update apps on your Ledger device:

Open Ledger Live

  • Click on "My Ledger" in the left panel.

Update the apps

  • Look for the apps that need updates.

  • Click the "Update" button to update the selected app.

  • Follow any on-screen prompts to complete the update.
