Since Ledger does not support batch transactions, the regular staking process will not work if you have your stash account on your Ledger. It requires two separate transactions. 

Here is the complete process: 

  • Go to the "Staking" tab found under the "Network" dropdown in the top navigation menu.
  • Click the "Account Actions" pane in the inner navigation.
  • Click "+ Stash" instead of "+ Nominator" or "+ Validator" (selecting the latter two will not work).
  • Input the amount of tokens to bond and confirm the transaction.
  • Confirm the transaction on the Ledger device.
  • When the transaction is included you will see the newly bonded account in the "Account Actions" page.
  • Select "Start Nominating" or "Start Validating" to start nominating or validating.
  • Confirm the transaction on Apps and on the Ledger device.
