How to Stake BAND (Band Protocol) with Ledger Wallet

Ledger hardware wallets support cryptocurrency staking, including Band Protocol. You can stake any number of BAND tokens and receive passive income of up to 20% per annum.

The Everstake team prepared a simple beginner guide explaining how to stake BAND tokens using a Ledger Nano S/Nano X hardware wallet.

Step 1. Launch the Ledger Live app

Step 2. Download Cosmos (ATOM) using Ledger Live

Step 3. Connect your Ledger device to your web wallet

Now choose a connection method. In our case it’s “Ledger — Cosmos”. Ledger will verify that the site you are connecting the hardware wallet to is genuine. Leave HD Derivation Path unchanged and click “Connect to Ledger”.

Step 6. Embed BAND

Enter the amount of tokens you want to delegate manually, or just click “Max” to stake the entire amount at once. Enter any amount: Band Protocol has no limits. Usually you don’t need to enter a Memo, but if the validator has this parameter, then you need to enter it as well. After that click “Next”.

Please note that the unstake period is 21 days. This means that you can only unstake and withdraw coins to your wallet after this time has passed. We wish you profitable staking!
