Can I export an existing DOT account from polkadot.js to my Ledger wallet? Print

While it might be possible in theory to restore your 12-word mnemonic seed on the Ledger (see instructions here), it would defy the purpose of a hardware wallet.
The added security of a hardware wallet comes from the fact that your private keys are never exposed online. It, therefore, makes much more sense to send your funds from a hot wallet to your Ledger, rather than importing your existing mnemonic seed to it.
