NOTE: If you use a Ledger hardware device to manage your keys and signing on Lunie, you do not need to backup anything from the Lunie extension. Your private keys and everything related to the Ledger are stored on the device. You should have already backed it up when you setup your device.
As discussed in our other recent post, Lunie will be shutting down its staking and governance platform for all our networks including Cosmos, Polkadot, Kusama, e-Money, Terra, Akash and Kava. We have put together a transition plan for anyone to easily migrate their existing wallets on any of these networks to other existing wallets.
For those of you who have been using Lunie for some time now, it’s important to reiterate that Lunie is fully non-custodial. We do not hold any funds on your behalf and all of your addresses are fully in your control and possession.
What this means is that you can take your backup code / seed phrase to any other wallet provider at any time. You do not need to unstake or send anything anywhere. When we shut down our platform and products, nothing will happen to your addresses or accounts — they live on the blockchain! The best course of action is to pick another wallet / staking platform and go through their “recover / import account” process.
Your Keys Your Crypto
The most important information related to your addresses on Lunie is the seed phrase (backup code) or private key associated with them. We have several articles explaining the nature of how to manage and secure your private credentials. At any time you can take these credentials, whether they be a private key string or a seed phrase and use them on another platform. Never share your seed phrase / backup code / private key with anyone.
If you used the Cosmos app on your Ledger Hardware wallet on Lunie, the only thing you have to do is pick a new provider that supports the Ledger Hardware wallet.
We’ve Got Your Back
Over the coming weeks as we phase out the Lunie platform and products we’ll offer support to our community of users as needed. We’ll also have network specific migration guides for all of our networks so you’ll know exactly what you need to do in order to begin using another wallet right away.
No Need To Un-Stake To Migrate
This is an important point that we wanted to make as clear as possible: you do not need to un-stake your tokens to migrate your account to a new provider. The best course of action is to pick another wallet / staking platform and go through their “recover / import account” process.
We have put together a number of network specific migration guides to assist with this transition.
