How to claim and manage your .crypto domain

There is a known bug with Ledger (through Metamask) that will currently not let our users sign management transactions. We are aware of the issue and working on a solution. For the time being please use a different method to claim the domains. It will be possible to transfer the domains to Ledger later.

What does claiming mean?

Claiming is the process of pushing your domains from our database on to the blockchain, and into your cryptocurrency wallet. Once a domain is claimed, the user has full custody over their domain. If you wish to use, sell or gift a domain - you must first claim it .

Choose a web3 wallet guide to claim and manage your .crypto domain:

Desktop -

  • Metamask (Desktop/Browser) - Recommended

  • Opera (Desktop/Mobile/Browser)

  • Brave (Desktop//Browser)

Mobile -

If your wallet is not in this guide, try following the steps of a different one above. This process should be very similar in other mobile wallets that also have a dapp browser. (e.g. Enjin)

hi guys,
i have successfully claimed my .crypto address using MetaMask+Ledger HW wallet, but only after trying to manage my address i have noticed the bug on MetaMask+Ledger and am unable to manage or transfer my address since.
please help?


We expect to be able to provide Metamask with a GitHub push request in the coming weeks to enable Ledger wallet owners to manage their domains.

It’s possible to transfer your domain now from the Ledger hardware wallet via a 3rd party website. Please email if you you would like details of how to do the transfer.

Many thanks Paul, I’ll be giving it a couple of weeks and hope for the issue to be resolved.

I claimed my domain with Trust wallet, and transferred it to another wallet, but the status of my domain under My Domains shows: Pending Claim. Knowing that my domain is transferred to another wallet.

We will be updating the user interface in the next couple of days and then the domain should be visible in your account.

Hi @PaulC, is there any update on the GitHub push for Metamask?

Claimed one domain with my metamask wallet and linked one of my btc addresses and eth address but it says invalid bitcoin address when I try to send to the domain?
Claimed another domain with my metamask wallet linked to my ledger and this one is unable to save changes when trying to set my ETH/LTC/BTC addresses.
Any advice? Is there some wait time?

Hi @bfount ,

  1. Payments with blockchain domains only work with our supported wallets. We’re actively working on integrations so more wallets will follow.
  2. See the warning at the top of this guide. You can not manage domains through Ledger at the moment. We’re working on fixing the issue with Ledger but there is no timeline. You can transfer the domain to a different wallet with Opensea for the time being.

Hi @Mago,
This is quite frustrating that my domain(s) are stuck with the Ledger HW (I managed to register the owner ETH address but nothing since) and there seems to be no solution in sight. Can I get step-by-step instructions on how to transfer my domain from the currently registered Ledger HW with MetaMask to Opensea or whatever other non-HW solution exists?


Ledger needs to update their firmware as Trezor did some time ago.

Please send us an email to and we will provide the details how to move the domains from your Ledger hardware wallet.
