Prerequisites

  • You must have a shielded amount of GTU on the account you want to make the shielded transfer from. See Shield GTU on an account.

Note

You can’t make shielded transfers on multi-signature accounts.

Send a shielded amount of GTU

When you make a shielded transfer, the amount you transfer is only known to you and the recipient. However, on the blockchain, it’s possible to see which accounts are involved in the transfer.

  1. Go to Accounts.

  2. Select Shielded balance on the account you want to make the transfer from.

  3. Select Send. In Send shielded funds, enter the amount of GTU that you want to send.

  4. Select the recipient of the GTU, and then select Continue.

  5. In the Desktop Wallet there’s a message saying Waiting for device. Please connect your Ledger. Connect the Ledger to your computer, and then enter your PIN code on the Ledger.

  6. On the Ledger, there’s a message saying Concordium. Press both buttons to open the Concordium Ledger App. On the Ledger, there’s a message saying Concordium is ready, and in the Desktop Wallet, there’s a message saying Ledger Nano S is ready.

  7. In the Desktop Wallet, select Submit. There’s a message saying Waiting for the user to finish the process on the device.

  8. Press both buttons on the Ledger to confirm the following information: Export PRF key.

  9. On the Ledger there’s a message saying Concordium is ready, and then it says Review transaction. Using the right button, you now have to navigate through the following information to verify that it’s correct and matches the transaction details in the Desktop Wallet:

    • Encrypted amount transfer, which is the type of transaction. Because the amount is encrypted, the Ledger can’t display the actual amount that’s going to be transferred.

    • Sender, which is the sender account.

    • Recipient, which is the recipient account.

  10. On the Ledger there’s a message saying Sign transaction. Press both buttons to sign the transaction.

  11. In the Desktop Wallet there’s a message saying Transfer submitted, which means that the transfer has been submitted to the chain.

  12. Select Finish. The transfer is listed in the Transfers list.
