We recently received many questions about support for NEO on the Ledger Nano S and Ledger Blue. Good news for all Nano S and Blue owners: the NEO app has been made available for download via Ledger Manager for a number of days now. Support for NEO will work through an integration with the popular Neon Wallet app.
Built by the community
The development of the NEO Ledger app is not done by Ledger themselves, but by users in the community led by a user named Coranos, who announced that he was starting the project about two months ago. Coranos has kept the community informed of its progress through Reddit and initially estimated that the project would take three to six months.
Although the app is available for download via the Ledger Manager, users will have to wait until an updated version of the Neon Wallet app is released to use the device. The new Neon version is expected within a week.
How does it work?
Management works through an integration with the Neon Wallet app. When the Neon Wallet app is provided with its latest update, you can use the Nano S to view your balance and sign NEO / GAS transactions. When you download the NEO app via Ledger Manager, you download the application on your hardware wallet so that you can log in to the Neon Wallet app via your Nano S or Blue. There is as yet no Ledger Chrome app available by Ledger.
