Use Peercoin

  1. Connect and unlock your device with your PIN code.
  2. Launch the Ledger Bitcoin Wallet on your computer. The wallet will open after synchronization.

Note: Peercoin works through the Ledger Bitcoin Wallet since the Peercoin project shares much of its source code with Bitcoin, e.g. it can be called an altcoin.
