How To Connect A Ledger Nano Or HW.1 To Mycelium
This Tutorial is designed to help you connect your Ledger Nano or Ledger HW.1 to your mobile phone using Mycelium Wallet.
For this Tutorial you’ll need a Ledger Nano or HW.1 and a USB on-the-go cable that works with your phone. Ledger sells a branded one with a different style for Android phones as well.
Just like my Review of Mycelium Wallet I’m going to write it as if you’re on Android. If I pick up the right equipment I may amend this Tutorial to include iOS instructions in the future. I will also assume you’ve already downloaded Mycelium Wallet from the Google Play Store and installed it, or at least know how to do so.
Go to the Accounts tab.
Click on the Key+ icon at the top.
Click on Advanced.
Click on Ledger.
Connect your Ledger to your phone using the USB OTG cable.
Tell Android to allow Mycelium wallet to use the Ledger.
Enter your PIN.
Select a Ledger wallet to import.
Type in a name for the wallet.
Congratulations, you’ve connected the two.
Now when sending you’ll have to select the Ledger wallet in the account tab.
Go to the Balance tab and set up the send just like you would normally and hit Send.
Connect your Ledger Nano or HW.1 when Mycelium tells you.
Put in your PIN to unlock the wallet.
Put in the code from your security card, just like you do on the computer.
And that’s all there is to it. You now have a mobile security solution for your Bitcoin.
As I said in my Review, I consider the Ledger HW.1 to be a long term storage solution I would store in a lock box or safe of some kind. Also, I don’t like having to always carry an adapter to connect to my phone. For that reason I suggest you keep the HW.1, adapter, security card, and recovery sheet in a secure location. For my next Tutorials I will show you how to set up a Ledger Unplugged and connect it to Mycelium for a better on-the-go solution.
