How do I set up a Ledger hardware wallet?

Setting up a Ledger hardware wallet is done in 4 simple steps.

  1. Download Ledger Live to begin the setup process. This is also where cryptocurrencies will later be managed.
  2. Select PIN code write down the recovery seed – the 24-word recovery seed is the only backup of the private key. Never give it to anyone else!
  3. Installing applications on the hardware wallet via Ledger Live, for example the Bitcoin application.
  4. Adding an account to manage cryptocurrencies.

The complete setup process for all models is clearly explained with videos here: Ledger Getting Started.
