Our full guide can be seen and read here: https://myetherwallet.github.io/knowledge-base/migration/moving-from-private-key-to-ledger-hardware-wallet.html Basically, use your private key to unlock your wallet on MyEtherWallet and send the funds to the address controlled by your new Ledger device.

BIP44 defines the address gap limit to be 20. Which means during recovery, as when importing your master public key in a wallet for monitoring, the software looks 20 addresses ahead of the last used address. If functioning normally, the software should only derive a new public address if the last one hasn't seen any transaction. You can't force the Ledger ...

The question isn't whether or not it will happen. It will almost certainly never happen. The question is, "What if it does?" In a technical sense nothing bad would happen. It would be exactly the same if you had the same private key on two devices, which is something I do all the time, for example. Each owner of the account could spend any amount they ...

Pretty much the reverse process of how you bought the Ether using Coinbase. it also is advised that one should never send ETH to an address that they "own" in an exchange such as Coinbase, since it's not an individual address that you have access to. It's not that you should never send Ether to an exchange address but more that you shouldn't leave it ...

A Ledger device uses a Hierarchical, Deterministic (HD) addressing scheme, where different "branches" of addresses are generated from one seed. It uses one "branch" for ETH, and a different "branch" for ETC, and doesn't expect to find the one in the other (which is why the coins aren't showing up in the wallet UI for you). So, your coins are likely safe, ...

The benefits of using a hardware wallet include: You don't need to carry another trusted device with you (e.g., a phone or laptop): you can go up to any old Internet kiosk and perform a transaction. The hardware wallet can be much smaller/convenient. It's also supposedly running in a more trustable environment (but many/most hardware wallets are closed ...

If your transaction runs out of gas it will be marked as CANCELLED and the ether will never leave your account. You can try checking for the transaction on a web based block viewer like http://www.etherscan.io. It also sounds like the hardware wallet implementation could use a bit of an update to detect issues like that and update more quickly.

You should be able to use the Ledger Nano S with myetherwallet. It should display the same addresses as the official ledger wallet. Also, with MEW you can change both the gas price and the gas amount. This GIF shows how to change the max gas price, but you can see toward the bottom of the GIF that the gas amount is set by default to 21000 and you can ...

Yes, your seed regenerates the private key on your device, and it can in fact do so with any Ethereum wallet that supports seed regeneration of a private key. Anyone can do the same, assuming they have access to your seed, so it is up to you to keep the seed in a safe place. If you are concerned with security, there are 2048 words to choose from in the ...

The list of all supported ERC20 tokens by the Ledger Nano S is at this page I'm not quoting this page because it is often updated, therefore my quote would be quickly missing important information. If you just want to receive some ERC20 tokens you actually don't need to do anything special. Every Ethereum addresses have the same properties, no matters what ...

You can use truffle-ledger-provider for deploying smart contracts with Ledger Wallet. Usage as follows: var LedgerWalletProvider = require("truffle-ledger-provider"); var infura_apikey = "..."; // set your Infura API key var ledgerOptions = { networkId: 3, // ropsten testnet accountsOffset: 0 // we use the first address }; module.exports = { ...

Your address/private key pair will work regardless of which network you are connected to. You can just use your account on ETH as if you were on ETC. This is of course assuming the Ethers and the transaction is on ETH.

My Ether Wallet should still work without any Chrome (or extensions). I use it with Firefox, not tested with Ledger Nano S. Source with step-by-step instrucitons. They specifically mention that you don't need to use Chrome if you use MEW. As always, beware of phishing.


2

You need to use MyEtherWallet or MyCrypto with the Ledger device to see and manage the ERC20 tokens. Go to "Edit Account" -> Advanced Logs in the Ledger Live wallet. Get the "FreshAddressPath" value. Log onto MyEtherWallet On the "Select Derivation Path" popup, chose "Your Custom Path" Type in the value you saved from the ledger live wallet. It should ...

Increase the network fees (from ledger-website) "For Bitcoin-like crypto assets, you can increase the network fees to accelerate your transaction. This functionality will be implemented in Ledger Live later." There is no way to send with a higher gas price. You are better off using MEW. See this article here: https://support.ledger.com/hc/en-us/articles/...

The transaction, as far as the blockchain is concerned, never existed. It's like recording a video and then deleting it -- you might as well not have recorded it. There shouldn't be any sign of your funds leaving your account.

Even if you have the latest firmware, you must use the Ledger Manager to update the Ethereum app to the latest version.

This attack has recently (Jan 2018) been discovered in Ledger devices. Here is the report about it https://www.docdroid.net/Jug5LX3/ledger-receive-address-attack.pdf The Attack Ledger wallets generate the displayed receive address using JavaScript code running on the host machine. This means that a malware can simply replace the code ...

You cannot transfer ether without paying transaction fees (there is a gas cost associated with transfers and gas prices must be greater than 0). If by "mine directly" you mean "receive payouts from a pool" or "use the Ledger address as a mining coinbase", the answer is yes. If you mean "use the Ledger as a mining node", the answer is no.

Switch to ADVANCED MODE at the bottom left of your ledger wallet Ethereum and change the GAS PRICE.

If your seed is known then yes.In general the seeds are selected from a very large pool which makes it nearly impossible for some one to re-construct your address randomly guessing the combination.

When you configure a Ledger Nano S, it generates a 24 word mnemonic for you to write down and store in a safe place. The mnemonic is stored in the ledger's secure element and used to generate the private key securely.

The aim of a hardware wallet is to never expose the private keys for the addresses it generates. The wallet doesn't want anybody to ever see those private keys. Instead of trying to determine if you're you, or if you're a hacker, this system just assumes that you're a hacker. Why assume that can be trusted? If you're you, you shouldn't need to know the ...

Switch to ADVANCED MODE at the bottom left of your ledger wallet Ethereum and change the GAS LIMIT.

Yes, the process is fully deterministic and nothing involved in it is random except for the original seed, so you should be able to regenerate the same addresses in the same order.

Please try the following. This solves 99% of problems. -Restart your computer (Do not be lazy. Restart it FIRST). Use Google Chrome. Make sure you don't have any other apps that connect to your Ledger open (e.g. the Ledger Bitcoin Chrome app, Mist, etc.) Make sure you have browser support turned ON. Make sure you have contract data turned ON. That you are ...

Had the same issue. Although it's counter intuitive, setting Browser support to "No" allows it to connect. I am not sure if this is a bug or not but it does the trick

Both would own the account since they both get the private key. But it is very unlikely to happen one day. Edit : I think it is already answer here but the odd of this happening one day are well described here

You cannot do this. The Ledger is a hardware wallet that's meant by design not to allow exposing your private key to anyone (not even yourself). If this was possible, the minute your private key is exposed your hardware device stops being secure. MyEtherWallet and MyCrypto don't have access to your private key. Whenever you need to execute a transaction, ...
