Use a Ledger with Polkadot JS

Before you start

Ensure you have the latest version of the Nodle (NODL) app installed on your ledger device. Ensure that Ledger Live is closed as it may cause conflicts with Polkadot JS.

You must use Chrome or a Chromium based browser such as Brave to use Polkadot JS with a Ledger Device.

Use one of the links below to open the Nodle page on Polkadot JS:

Connect your Ledger

Assuming that you have the application opened and your Ledger is unlocked, navigate to Settings, then select manage hardware connections and choose one of the options presented to you. Click Save.

Add your account

  1. In the top header, go to Accounts.
  2. In the drop-down menu, click Accounts.
  3. Select Add via Ledger on the page that opens.
  4. In the subsequent menu, enter a name in the name field, then leave account type and address index as they are. Click Save.
  5. A pop-up window may appear. To confirm the connection with your Ledger device, select your device then click Connect.
  6. Your account appears.

Add additional accounts

If you own multiple accounts, follow the steps below to add them manually:

  1. Select Add via Ledger.
  2. In the name field, choose a different name for your second account.
  3. In the account type field, choose Account type 1. The address index field can stay on the default 0 value. Click Save.
  4. Your second account should now show up next to your first account. If you own a third account, follow the same steps but this time choose account type 2, and so on so forth.
