In this example, we will not be changing the account selected for staking, therefore this step is just for information.
Amount to stake
Input the amount of Solana you wish to stake.
Alternatively, you can press ‘Max’ to automatically input the maximum amount of SOL in that account.
Please note that any fees for the transaction to submit will be accounted for and deducted, so you will see less than the amount of SOL you input to stake.
Once all details have been input, press ‘Continue’.
You will then be shown a breakdown of the transaction.
Step 6: Ledger Confirmations
You will see the below, asking you to ensure your Ledger device is connected. Ensure your Ledger device is connected, unlocked and Ledger Live is not running, then press ‘I’ve set up my Ledger’.
You will need to carry out confirmations on your Ledger device.
Whilst you do that, the NuFi app will display the below.
You will need to complete the below verifications on your Ledger Nano device.

Step 8: Activate Staking
You will be taken back to your Solana staking accounts. Press 'Show Staking' on the Ledger account you have just staked.
You will then be shown some details of the staking account you just created.
Your account will display as inactive. Select the three dots in the far-right corner, then press ‘Activate staking’
Step 9: Choose Validator
