This guide shows how to connect Ledger Nano S with MyEtherWallet (MEW). MyEtherWallet allows you to send and receive ERC20 tokens and customize the gas amounts of transactions, whilst the Nano S allows you to keep your private key out of the hands of hackers.

Nice vids! I think the best way to check your balance is by installing Myetherwallet Chrome extension just click the extension and it will show you the balance. Obviously, you have to add your address as a watch only address.
can you please help me, i have many alt coins like Dragonchain, Vechain, HPB, NANO, BTC etc but i heard Ledger Nano S doesnt store most of the alt coins i have, so whats the point on buying Ledger Nano S? i want to back up my long term alt coins but i dont know how to do it. i dont want paper wallets as it seems difficult and i dont want to store them online wallets. I am new so i would need easiest way to do it user friendly, thanks
Hi Michael, I haven't tried to send any erc-20 from my Trezor, can I just click the drop down menu find the token, and send to my eth address on mew without sending to an exchange and converting, then cashing out? I guess I could try it with a small amount and find out.
So just to clarify this. This is for storing your coins right? Say I want to transfer some LTC and ETH to my ledger.. that means it leaves my wallets on Coinbase where it’s pulling from and is stored onto the ledger right?
NEWBIE QUESTION: Ledger App and MEH for ETH are same address?. Confusing me. If xfering ERC20 from xchange, how does Ledger distinguish or does it even need to? If I can go direct from xchange to Ledger App, what is MEW for? Can anyone clarify this?
Hello I saw one of your responses and was wondering if you could help me with a problem...kinda new to the crypto thing! Here is my dilema: I tried sending trx coins to my nano ledger S through the ledger website which makes you download several apps, one of which is an ether app (classic one). I put in the address ledger gave me and put it in the address bar on coinspot and hit send. It went through but the coins never showed up in my ledger ether app account. (hope that makes sense) I contacted both ledger and coinspot and coinspot said theres nothing they can do and said to contact ledger and show them the address. Ledger replied to me and said we don't support trx but go to "my ether wallet" and see if it went there. So I went and opened a my ether wallet account and am wondering how I get those coins into that wallet. If you can help I'd be forever grateful! THanks, Tom
Hi Michael. This is a great video but I have a trouble that I need help with very seriously. I have 3 ledger Nano S and I have been unable to use any of them to access MyEtherWallet.
So this is the problem: I created by MEW prior to purchasing the Ledger Nano S. Each time I try to login into MEW using the Ledger Nano S, it takes me successfully into the MEW wallets displayed in your video but not into the MEW wallet that I have my funds in. I have tried all the 2 ledger Nano S and the same thing happens so I ended up using both Keystore JSON file ( which is unsecure) method to access my MEW which defeats the purpose buying 3 Ledger Nano S hardwallets. I watch several videos on this top but none seems to help so far
Great vid! As a newbie I've seen multiple nano ledger/MEW videos and was wondering why all of them but yours directs viewers to go to etherscan.io to get the contract address/decimal in order to add an ERC-20 token to our MEW. Kindly, can you touch on why we'd even need to do the etherscan.io step when from the looks of your video you can send and receive ERC-20 tokens without the contract address information? Thank you so much. I'll be sharing this video to a group of my fellow newbies once I get clarification as yours seems like the best one.
Hey Michael, I have created MyEtherWallet and i can access this wallet. I have a question, then what happens i was loss my Omisego 936 tokes that was hacker by someone. It has been labeled as fakephising340. Need your advise is this possible my address can easily hack by anyone ? How do i can get my all loss tokens back ? Where are the token actually gone ? Appreciate your help. Thanks.
Just got mine....I don't have massive amounts of cripto but as it goes up in value it becomes more scary keeping it on coinbace.
So bought one...very overpriced cheap plastic with cheap feeling buttons & low memory...but it comes in a very posh iPhone style box to help you digest the cost of this overpriced but I suspect very useful product...so I begrudgingly got it..one thing springs to mind though is its tax deductible as is now my iPad as I use it for cripto which is subject to capital gains so if cripto booms then I have expenses against he tax..
Hi Michael!! quick question, I made a myether wallet and downloaded the Keystore/JSON file which is saved on my computer. Even if I buy and start using the nano ledger s, how can I keep my Keystore/JSON file safe from hackers? I am new to Crypto, Thanks!
You do not need to store your Keystore/JSON file in your computer because if hackers get into your computer then they can get access to your file and possibly steal all your funds. What you need to do is to save the Keystore/JSON file on USB sticks (2 preferably) and save them somewhere and then delete the file from your computer.
friends these are two ICO which i got after struggling a lot these are potential ICO with good plans and strong team
Hi, I have a couple of questions regarding cold wallet. First of all, I'm currently holding: Trx, Appc, NAV, Ven, Ark and Neblio. Can I store them all on a ledger nano or Mew? Or do I have to convert them into Btc, ltc, Eth etc... Please help me out cause I'm storing everything on binance and after hearing news about exchanges being hacked, I don't feel safe leaving them there. Thank you
I have a Trezor wallet, but I am uncomfortable that I have not been able to use the key phrase to access the wallet from any wallet except Trezor. For example, the key phrase for a Jaxx wallet can be used to access your coins from a Coinomi wallet. If Jaxx stops supporting its wallet, you can get your coins from Coinomi, or some other compatible wallet long as you have your key phrase. If Trezor's website gives you a 404 error one day. Where do you go? Trezor will not give you your private keys.
You can factory reset an old phone or tablet, and install a Jaxx or Coinomi wallet. Then, you keep the phone shut off or disconnected from WIFI, with no SIM card unless you need to transfer your coins. This seems secure, safe, and reproducible to me. What do you think?
Hi Michael. First of all, thanks for all your videos, think I've seen all of them and now i have a question. I have the ledger wallet and soon Envion tokens will be unlocked. Now i was wondering if it would be working when add a custom token on MEW if that will work on the Ledger Nano S wallet. Hope you could answer this question, it would very much help me! Thanks in advance. Regards Maikel
is it possible to store the already existing private key, from myetherwallet on my nano ledger s ? so I can get rid of the file on my PC? As I understand the nano ledger already created 5 new addresses, what about if I want to use the already existing one from myetherwallet ?
Dude you need to be way more specific when saying sending to yourself. Iam trying to send my GOLEM from JAXX to MEW and I logged into MEW using my Ledger. So when I send tokens to those address's generated by MEW when logged into through my ledger those are the address's on my ledger? And you said your sending coins back to yourself? So what you are saying is your sending tokens from your ledger back to a ledger address you have? And also the Ledger does not come with a manual.. Any help would be appreicated. Also when you say I am going to select my BAT here, you are blocking that part of the computer where that action is occuring. For trying to help people who have no idea what they are doing or firstimers your going really fast and not explaining the send to address fully enough. Also the command you call send is "generate transaction" Also will you see your ERC20 tokens actually stored on the Ledgder Screen or not????
Boxmining. Or anyone... When I set up MEW it was late and I was trying to set up my Ledger Nano. Well I got the MEW set up but not the Ledger. So I just printed out my paper wallet and got a Address (QR code) along with a Private Key (QR code). It was late so I went to bed came to the office and tried with friend over lunch to get one set up and somehow we plugged in the Nano and set up a new wallet and somehow did not get the private key written down but I did set up in my Ledger with a key inside but I don't have access to any longer because when I print out the paper wallet address it only shows the address and not the private key unlike the one I had printed off the night before. I just don't want to not have my private key in addition to my Nano having a copy I can't see. I hope this is not confusing. SO my question is now that I have it seems two wallets (one I set up that late night with key and one set up with my Ledger without key) can I send the Ether out of my Ledger wallet to the MEW with the key and then close down the MEW without the key and now zero balance and then attach my Ledger to the wallet where my coins are and lock it down with the Ledger?
Hi, I'm having a little trouble.. I made an ether wallet a couple days ago and I did not use my ledger at first because I was buying into a Ico and was under a time crunch so I just made an account using my private key and was intending on using the private key for just a one time quick thing but now I'm sure how to access my account after the fact.. can you please help me?
where did you send your BAT tokens to? from myetherwallet to nano s?
i have a utc file but if i want to use the nano s...do i have to send all the tokens from myetherwallet to the nano s like you did? and what will happen to the utc file then, i can delete it? so confused now
Hello Michael would I able to import my ethereum private key from blockchain.info to my ether wallet and store it in my Ledger nano s? If yes, Can I able to have multiple private key store in ledger nano s?
When sending ERC20 tokens from exchanges to Nano address, Nano doesn't have to be connected. Connecting to MEW is only to get ETH address, which can also be accomplished with just Ledger Waller ETH App. Right?
when I enable browser support and use MEW to view my ledger wallet I have a number of ETH public addresses to use... but when I open with the ledger wallet there is only one address.
What would happen to my ETH if sent to one of these other addresses and then opened in ledger wallet? thanks
Hello great guide. Quick question. I already have a myetherwallet address I was using and recently purchased nano s. How do I connect the nano to my existing address? I was searching for it the addresses but couldn't find, theres just too many.
Ok so I am confused a bit. I have coins in myetherwallet. I understand the process to do the actual transfer of erc20 tokens to nano s and interacting between the two, but when I am connecting the two how to do I connect the NANO S to the specific myetherwallet that I have my coins in? I am not sure how to connect my actual myetherwallet with coins in it to the nano s.
Thanks. Need to ask. If I am buying an ICO presale, can I send them ETH directly from my Ledger nano s ? I mean without loging into MEW.
And then will I find theirs tokens in my MEW later ? or Do I have to allow something in MEW to be able to receive it?
Michael, there is one issue that wasn't made clear in your vid. Can you associate your ledger nano with an existing MEW address holding multiple tokens, OR do you have to send them all to the address/es provided by Ledger device. Thanks.
Please explain this scenario: you have eth on your ledger and also Eth/tokens on a Myetherwallet account, you then plug in the ledger, will it only show the amount you have on your ledger? Or will it display the Myetherwallet tokens and eth amount aswell? I'm guessing the private key for the ledger only lets you see your ledger amount?
I have a mew account with my eth and tokens on it but how can i connect that to a new ledger. I followed your steps but it shows me new wallets with no balances. When i log in directly to mew i see all my balance. Do i need to log in to mew first then connect the ledger nano s for it to connect to my main mew wallet
Do I need to set up MEW first? and if so when I get to the part where I use The JSON file it says that is not a recommended way of using the wallet and it has an option to use Ledger... That's what I'd like to do but how if I don't have the wallet yet? This video assumes I already have a wallet and the videos explaining how to set up MEW assume I don't have the ledger.. Please Help
How to become bitcoin trader? Exactly like Bitcoin, multiple digital currencies exist in the marketplace. So if you prefer to buy a few other currencies which aren`t available on Indian Exchange than you can utilize Bittrex. All you have to do is locate an exchange that you favor. Cryptocurrency exchanges have a massive potential to modify peoples minds and opinions concerning cryptocurrencies generally speaking and their application in actual life. So even in the event the exchange is attacked, its still true that you have your money. Furthermore, the exchanges prepare each and every industry for Bitcoin expansion. Existing stock exchanges will also compete to be able to fulfill the users configuration requirements. Sooner or later later on, the prices will grow more equal, meeting somewhere in the middleyour profit is equivalent to the quantity of convergence. No matter how far it is from Kijun, it is likely to return and test that level at some point. The amount of bitcoin is perpetually changing. In the US, it is 1000 USD. Whats even better, seek the services of a seasoned lawyer or at least ask for an in depth consultation. So youve read the newspaper about the meteoric growth of crypto currencies including Bitcoin or Ripple. Then coming up with 1000s of exchange rates simply to go out and get groceries is nearly impossible. Many cities around the world provide a bitcoin ATM where you are able to trade cash for bitcoin. The cryptocurrency world isn`t efficient.
