Title: Destination Tag For Ledger Nano S?
Post by: rvnmedic6869 on March 14, 2018, 12:21:05 PM
I've got my Nano up and running and transferred a test amount of LTC from Coin Base to the ledger wallet.

I tried to buy Ripple on Bitit.io and it required a destination tag, even though I provided the Ledger Ripple wallet address.  Couldn't find anything on this forum but did see a reference on the Reddit forum where a poster said the Ledger wallet doesn't require a destination tag and if needed, just put a zero in the box.  That didn't work.

So my question is this:  Does the Nano S wallet require a destination tag or not?  I've started a case # with Bitit but not sure how long till they respond.

Thanks.

Yes, destination tag is required whether you are sending(depends) or receiving XRP. If you want to receive XRP from an exchange to your nano S wallet you can fill the destination tag with any numeric digit, 0 will also work. Since you already mentioned that you filled 0 but it didn't work that is because if you are receiving your XRP for the first time in your nano S wallet the minimum amount must be at least 20XRP otherwise, your transaction will get failed i.e. because, for the first transaction, 20XRP is needed for your Nano S device to properly operate. So try sending at least 20XRP to your nano ledger. And if you want to send XRP from your nano S to exchange (if you are requested to fill destination tag then you must fill it given by an exchange) otherwise your transaction will be rejected & returned back or stuck in an exchange. If destination tag not required by an exchange when you want to send, just ripple address will be enough.
