Registering as a Concordium Desktop Wallet user

To be able to use the Concordium Desktop Wallet, you need a Ledger Nano S hardware device with the Concordium Ledger Application installed.

Before you can use Concordium Desktop Wallet, you will need to create an initial account and register with an identity provider by following the instructions in the app. An identity provider is a third-party supplier and independent of Concordium Software. The Concordium Desktop Wallet stores data from the identity provider, but Concordium Software does not, and Concordium Software does not have access to data stored by the Concordium Desktop Wallet.

After you have created the initial account and registered with an identity provider, you can create additional accounts (‘regular accounts’) with which you will be able to carry out transactions.

Please note that you can only register one account as the initial account.

Activation code and personal password

When you register in Concordium Desktop Wallet, you will need to create a personal password. You should be aware that the password can be used to log on to Concordium Desktop Wallet and use some of the functions. All transactions require you to use the Ledger device with the Desktop Wallet to sign the transaction.

When you set up the Ledger Nano S you’ll generate private keys on the Ledger Nano S, and you’ll receive a 24-word recovery phrase that you must store in a safe place. This is the only backup of your private keys.
