Logging in with Ledger

Ledger Wallets can be a little finicky when logging into Web3 apps. This guide will show you step-by-step how to connect a Ledger to Pawn.fi via Metamask.

Step 1: Landing Page

Upon opening app.pawn.fi, you will be asked to log into your wallet. Click the "Connect Wallet" button below to get started.

Step 2: Metamask Signin

After clicking "Connect Wallet", you will see the Metamask popup. If required, enter your wallet password.

Step 3: Enable Ledger Live

Make sure Ledger Live is enabled in the "Advanced" section of your Metamask settings. If you've used Metamask with Ledger on other Web3 apps, this may already be enabled.

Step 4: Sign Login Message

Sign a message from Metamask to log in to the application. This keeps your information private and ensures that your wallet can not be impersonated for signin by someone else. The message includes a unique identifier that prevents others from re-using the signature to log in on your behalf.

Step 5: Open Ledger Live Websocket

After clicking "Sign" from your Metamask extension, open your Ledger Live app. You will be asked to open a connection to the Web from Ledger Live. This operation is completely safe - it does not expose any key information or sign any transactions. Any future transaction must still be confirmed on the Ledger hardware. Click "Open" to open the Websocket.

Step 6: Confirm Websocket

After clicking "Open", you will see a loading screen on Ledger Live, until the Websocket opening is complete. You may need to open the Ethereum app on your device. Once the Websocket is open, you should see a "Sign Message" prompt on your Ledger device. Review and confirm the signature.

Step 7: Login Complete

Once you've signed the message with your Ledger device, go back to the Pawn.fi app on your browser. You should now be logged in and able to view the assets in your wallet.
