I installed the Monero GUI wallet on my laptop.

When I open the wallet and plug in my Ledger Nano S, I see an address on my Ledger Nano S which is different from the receiving address in the Monero GUI wallet.

What is the use of the Ledger Nano S in combination with the Monero GUI wallet?


  • The address displayed in the GUI should match the address displayed on the Ledger device. Are you perhaps looking at a subaddress in the GUI (one that starts with an 8)? – dEBRUYNE Jan 7 at 8:12
  • My primary address on the Monery Gui wallet starts with 41 ; the one on my Ledger starts with 49. – Luk Van holen Jan 7 at 17:49
  • type of Monero Gui wallet: GUI version: v0.13.0.4 (Qt 5.7.0) Embedded Monero version: v0.13.0.4 – Luk Van holen Jan 7 at 17:50
  • Did you actually make sure to create a Ledger Monero wallet? If not, please see this guide -> monero.stackexchange.com/questions/9901/… – dEBRUYNE Jan 7 at 19:46
  • You're using the correct version by the way. – dEBRUYNE Jan 7 at 19:47
