Ledger helps to secure the usage of Stacks apps by allowing users to manage their assets and sign transactions while keeping private keys protected on their hardware devices.
Users must install or upgrade to version 0.23.3 of the Stacks app listed under “Manager” in Ledger Live for compatibility with this release. See instructions here.
App developers are encouraged to support Ledger usage by upgrading @stacks/connect to version 6.10.2 or later.
This official release comes four months after a preview release in May, which we’ve used to improve this Ledger functionality with early usage and feedback.
There remain a few known limitations to Ledger support, specifically:
- Ledger users can only access a pre-determined number of accounts (5) per device.
- Users cannot save data with apps via Gaia when authenticating apps with Ledger.
- Ledger is not supported by Firefox, only Chromium browsers such as Chrome and Brave.
We hope to addresses these limitations roughly in the order of priority as listed above.
Please let us know about your experience with Ledger by posting a message in the #wallet channel on Discord or filing an issue in the GitHub repository.
