Zcoin (XZC)

Zcoin (XZC) can be managed from a Ledger Nano S through the use of Electrum-XZC  and the Zcoin app on your Ledger device. Both are developed and supported by the Zcoin community.

Solutions to common issues are described at the bottom of this article. Please refer to the Zcoin community for more information and troubleshooting.

  • Connect your Ledger Nano S and enter your PIN to unlock the device.
  • Click on the green arrow button to install the Zcoin app.
  • Confirm by pressing the right button if the device displays Allow Ledger manager?
