Getting started with Lunie and the Ledger Nano S/X

A step-by-step guide for creating an account with Lunie and a Ledger Nano.

Welcome to our guide for getting started with Lunie.io. In a matter of minutes, you’ll be well on your way to participating in the new staking economy! 👋

This guide will explain how to set up an account and create a Cosmos address on Lunie.io with a Nano Ledger S and the Cosmos Ledger App.

If you’d prefer to use our browser extension— check out our guide for [getting started with the Lunie browser extension]().

Accounts on Lunie

Whether you’re in the Lunie browser extension, the Lunie mobile apps (coming soon), or the Cosmos Ledger app — your account info always stays with you. This is known as non-custodial because we don’t custody your funds or your keys for you.

We don’t store your account data on our servers or in our database and so, you need to store your backup code somewhere safe. 🔒

On Lunie, Accounts are simply the name of your choosing (like a username) and a locally-encrypted password associated with your address.

If you lose access to your local accounts AND lose your backup code, there is nothing we can do to help you. ❤️

Buy a Ledger Nano S/X

First things first. You’ll need a Ledger Nano S. If you don’t have one, you can buy one using this link to support Lunie. If you do have one and it’s already initialized, you can skip to the next section. If you have a Ledger and it’s not initialized here is the official guide for how to go about it.

Lunie supports the Ledger Nano X as well — but only with the cable. We will be adding bluetooth support for the Ledger Nano X after we release our mobile apps (Summer 2019).
