Setting your Ledger Nano X

Step 1: Making a connection

Connect the Ledger Nano X to your computer with the supplied USB cable. The Ledger will now start up.

In the screen it says: "Welcome to Ledger Nano X. Press the right button to continue". Press the right button to continue.

Next you will be asked to download Ledger Live, this can be done via this link. Press the right button to continue.

Step 2: Control

Now it will be explained in English how to operate the device. The device has two buttons. Use the right button to go to the next step, the left button to go back. Press both buttons to select an option.

Read through the texts and click each time on the right button to continue until you get to 'Set up as new device'. Press and hold both buttons to select this option.

Step 3: Selecting a PIN code

First of all, you have to choose a PIN code. The Ledger now asks "Choose a PIN code or 4 to 8 digits". Press both buttons.

You can choose a PIN code between 4 and 8 digits. You will need this code in the future to access the device.

You can use the left and right buttons to determine the first digit of your PIN code. Press both buttons to select the digit and choose the next digit.

Once you have selected your complete PIN code, navigate to the ✓ icon and press both buttons again. Then confirm your PIN again.

Step 4: The Recovery Phrase

The screen now reads: "Write Down Your Recovery Phrase".

Your recovery phrase is a recovery phrase. This phrase ensures that you will always have access to the contents of your wallet even if it is broken or stolen. Therefore, keep this sentence very well, without it you may lose everything.

The sentence consists of 24 randomly chosen words which are shown one by one on the screen. You can write these down on the Recovery sheet provided. Take this sheet and a pen and press both buttons at the same time to continue.

Step 5: Recovery Phrase Writing up

Transfer the first word (Word #1) to position 1 on your Recovery sheet.

Press the right button to go to the second word (Word #2). Copy this word to position 2. Repeat this process until the 24th word (Word #24).

It now reads: "Confirm your recovery phrase". Press both buttons again. The Ledger will now ask you to verify your sentence by requesting a word with a certain number. Look at your Recovery sheet and select the word that corresponds to the requested number.

Repeat this process until "Your device is now ready" appears on your device. Your device is now initialised. Then click on continue to manage your coins.

Set up Ledger Live

Step 1: Open Ledger Live

You can manage your coins via Ledger Live, this is the official app from Ledger. You have already downloaded the app. Open the app to get started.

Press the button 'Get started'. Because the device has just been initialized, choose the option 'Use an initialized device'. Then choose the 'Ledger Nano X'.

Step 2: Security Check

Now you have to go through a security checklist. Fill in 'Yes' at the first two questions to confirm that you have created your PIN code and recovery seed yourself.

Next, do the genuine check. To perform this check, you must confirm this on your Ledger by pressing both buttons. The check may take a while. When it is finished you can proceed to the next step.

Step 3: Password

Now you have the possibility to come up with a password. The password prevents anyone on your computer from viewing your details such as your transaction history and public addresses.

Fill in the password twice and press 'Continue'. At the button Bugs & analytics you can indicate how Ledger may use your data, then click on 'Continue' and 'Open Ledger Live'.

Step 4: Firmware Update

You may not have the latest firmware on your device. If this is the case, a new version is available under the heading 'Manager' on the right, with a blue 'Update' button next to it. Press this button to install the new firmware. If there is nothing there, you have the latest firmware and you can skip this step.

In the pop-up screen you first press 'Continue', then you have to verify your device by clicking on the right button of your Ledger and entering your pincode.

Now remove the USB cable from your Ledger, keep the left button of the device pressed and reconnect the cable to the Ledger until you see 'Processing' on the screen.

When the update is finished all you have to do is press 'Close'.

Step 5: Installing Apps

If you want to put a coin on your Ledger you have to install the corresponding app. Search for the right coin and press the 'Install' button and the app will be installed automatically.

Press 'Close' when the process is over.

Step 6: Creating an Account

In the menu on the left, go to 'Accounts' and press 'Add accounts'. Select the crypto you want to put on your wallet and click 'Continue'. Navigate to the app on your device and press 'Continue' on your screen.

Ledger Live is now synchronising. This may take a while. Under the heading 'Add New Account' you will see that you can give your new account a name. Select the check mark and click 'Add account'. Your account has now been added.

Step 7: Retrieve recipient address

We use Bitcoin as an example for this step. If you want to send Bitcoins from an exchange or another wallet to your Ledger, you need an address to send them to. This is called a receiving address and can be created in Ledger Live.

In the left menu go to Receive. Select an account in the first step. In the second step, wait until Ledger Live connects to your Ledger, go to the Bitcoin app on your device and press 'Continue'. In the third step, press 'Continue'. Now you will see a QR code with your receiving address below it. Navigate to 'Approve' on your device and press both buttons. You can copy the code by pressing 'COPY' on the screen.

Send your Bitcoin to this address to keep it safe on your Ledger.
