Yes, and I’ll explain to you why. How does Anchor work?

When you deposit UST you get aUST back, it’s a receipt of your deposit, you’ll notice that the amount of aUST you get back is lower than the amount of UST you put in, why is that? Because the way Anchor works it by price appreciation on aUST, the value of aUST goes up by the EARN rate. So you have your receipt on your cold storage, say you come back in a year, you’ll have the same aUST there but it will be worth more, so you can take more UST out of the contract.

Is there some sort of guide video on youtube explaining how to use Ledger on Anchor? I have a Ledger Nano but I can see neither UST nor aUST in the list of available cryptocurrencies. Where am I going wrong? :exploding_head:

You can use any official/known wallet that supports hardware wallets, Terra Station does but currently I’ve been using XDefi wallet. You won’t be using ledger’s app to see the balance, you’d use this supported wallet with the Terra app on the ledger to sign transactions.

Yes i use a Nano X and it works great and is easy to use, the S works fine as well according to other users. There is also now a youtube video posted by Crypto Simplified that shows how this is setup. Search for " Setup your ledger device on terra Network with terra station wallet" on youtube for instructions

Be aware though that if Anchor is hacked and the UST is drained, then the aUST held by your ledger will be worthless.
