You have probably already heard that the AE token is now supported by the Ledger Nano S hardware wallet. This enables yet another secure way to store your AE tokens in addition to the AirGap option.
Creating an æternity account in Ledger is actually quite easy. You will just need to install the æternity app on your hardware wallet using the Ledger Live software and then go to base.aepps.com to create an account. We have prepared a simple step-by-step guide on how to do that.
Despite our efforts to try to make this process as simple as possible, we have still noticed a number of users that seem to be experiencing difficulties setting up and using the Ledger for AE token management.
To improve this experience for everyone, we would like to invite you, our amazing community, to help out by creating a short video guide demonstrating how to use the Ledger Nano S with AE tokens. To move this goal forward, we are creating a little contest. Here are the rules:
- Participants will create a video explaining how to install the æternity app using Ledger Live. Once installed, they will need to show how it is recognized by the Base æpp in-browser (Chrome or Brave) and create an æternity account.
- The video must also feature receiving a transaction in AE tokens within the account generated on the Ledger, and then making a transaction using the Ledger and the Base æpp.
- The video must be recorded in clearly understandable English.
- If possible, please show the prompts on the Ledger Nano S screen. At the very least, explain what the Ledger Nano S displays and how you are interacting with the device.
- If you need a very small amount of AE tokens to create the guide, request it below.
Please announce your intention to create a guide below and include your AE token account. Once the guide is ready, please edit the post to include a link to the video. If you are selected as the winner, you will need to provide the original video file to us, so we can upload it to the æternity YouTube channel. Credits will be given.
In addition to creditting you as the guide creator, you will also receive 100 AE tokens (Mainnet, of course). If you are not selected as the winner, but have still prepared a guide, you may receive some AE for your efforts. Video submission deadline is 31.01.2019.
We are excited to see your videos and we wish you all good luck!
The AE team
