Before we start, first two notes: The Ledger Monero App is available for both the Ledger Nano S and the Ledger Nano X. If you are using Windows or Mac OS X and run active AV (AntiVirus) software, the AV software will likely quarantine the binaries (i.e. the .zip file (Windows) or .tar.bz2 file (Mac OS X)) you download from the downloads page of the ...

Windows We first have to ensure that we're sufficiently prepared. This entails the following: This guide assumes you have already initialized your Ledger wallet and thus generated a 24 word mnemonic seed. You need to run / use CLI v0.17.1.9, which can be found here or on the downloads page of the official website. You need to install the Ledger Monero app....

Currently, there are not any hardware wallets with Monero compatibility. Ledger and Trezor have both expressed interest in adding Monero support but nothing is forthcoming, at least that is public knowledge.

Ledger say Monero is on their roadmap in their FAQ http://support.ledgerwallet.com/knowledge_base/topics/general-ledger-nano-s-faq

The Trezor code will be made open source when NoodleDoodle thinks it is ready. Currently it is only suitable for testing with very small amounts of Monero because until it is open-souce, it cannot be trustless. SatoshiLabs is willing to eventually update their firmware once the code is open-source and thoroughly tested. NoodleDoodle prefers to wait until ...

Installing a new firmware on a Trezor, it won't be possible to import private keys. Because of the way Hierarchical Deterministic wallets work, a new seed and wallet will be created (with its own set of private keys). Therefore, you should temporarily transfer your bitcoin to another safe offline device while you set up the new firmware and seed and make ...

This was discussed in the dev meeting held on 2016-08-28: fluffypony: NoodleDoodle: do you want to talk about Trezor at all? NoodleDoodle: Sure :P fluffypony: yay, take it away NoodleDoodle: I'm about 1296 behind in commits. Rebasing is pretty much out of the question. Have to manually merge then release. fluffypony: NoodleDoodle: do ...

I also agree, it is the same. Adding a password makes a new private seed different from the 12 or 24 word base seed.

This is correct as far as I know.

I've noticed some confusion lately on how to restore one's Ledger Monero wallet. I have therefore written this guide. In case you have also lost (access to) your Ledger device, you first have to restore the 24 word Ledger mnemonic seed in another Ledger device. Restoring / recreating a Ledger Monero wallet is fortunately fairly trivial thereafter. GUI: ...

dEBRUYNE's guide is comprehensive but for Windows 7 users you may run into an error along the lines of: failed to generate new wallet: Fail SCard API : (-2146435026) 0x8010002E Device=0, hCard=0, hContext=14771806782070194176 The problem: You need to update your Drivers and it's not easy to see this issue.

A bit late to the party, but here is the Monero entry in Ledger's roadmap: https://trello.com/c/wsK0myEm/52-monero-support Apparently (if you follow the last reddit link) a first alpha release is planned for September. No info regarding a stable release yet though.

The original answer is found at https://github.com/LedgerHQ/ledger-app-monero/tree/master/tools/python. For OSX hosts, to complement the ledger-app-monero documentation, the Homebrew package manager's brew command is used instead of the apt command to install two dependent packages. The ledger-app-monero application has a dependency upon the libusb and ...

I had some initial issues/errors getting Monero GUI v0.14.0.0 working with the Monero app on a Ledger Nano S, specifically creating a new hardware wallet on the Nano S. Started with errors that suggested USB issues ("failed to generate new wallet: Wrong Device Status : SW=6e00 (EXPECT=9000, MASK=ffff)") as I was seeing a 'Nano S' item/entry in Device Manager ...

The list of English words available to create a bitcoin seed is not the same as the list of English words available to create a monero seed. For example, the first few words of the former are "abandon ability able about" whereas the first few words of the latter are "abbey abducts ability ablaze". Monero only considers the first three letters of each seed ...

Another solution may be to use a new command sweep_single that I proposed recently (#2634). This allows you to spend each one of your pre-RingCT outputs individually, preventing inferences of real spent outputs in the rings through the time alignment.


3

I'd do a sweep_all with a bigger ringsize to merge them all in one RCT output, followed by a couple of sweep_all to yourself (AKA "churn") with default ringsize at random intervals. You can send that first TX directly to your Ledger and then use the Ledger to do the churning TXes, as it will likely be more user friendly than "manually" with the cold wallet ...

Before we start, first two notes: Using the official GUI in conjunction with a Trezor device is only available for the Trezor model T.

Adding a small guide for Manjaro Linux users here (and possibly other Arch-based systems as well) as the process is a bit different than how it is explained in: https://github.com/LedgerHQ/blue-app-monero/blob/master/doc/user/bolos-app-monero.pdf specifically part 3.2.1.

The short answer is Yes, but until Monero wallet hardware support is out of alpha testing and is supported by two or more wallets consistently the answer to this question is a work-in-progress. For example BIP 39/44 technology can be used to seed the synthesis of 25 Electrum Words, see Example 10 that uses a shortened m/44'/128'/0' path that works with 12, ...

I have Bitcoin, Ethereum, and Monero but now there's no more space. So, well, it's 3 at least.

In it's simplest form, a hardware wallet is for holding your private keys on a non-internet connected device. It is also designed to be easy to use with your internet connected machine whereby it can sign transactions without you having to transfer keys to your regular internet connected computer. Should you switch is entirely personal choice and threat ...

On Ubuntu make sure you have the following dependencies installed apt-get install pcsc-tools libpcsclite1 pcscd otherwise you get an error similar to this: Error: failed to generate new wallet: Fail SCard API : (2148532253) Service not available. Device=0, hCard=0, hContext=0

Ledger Wallet is currently working on a hardware wallet. The subreddit /r/monero links to it in the side bar, and the github page LedgerHQ/blue-app-monero has some of the code that will make it up.
