How To Connect A Ledger Unplugged To Mycelium
This Tutorial was designed to teach you how to connect your Ledger Unplugged to Mycelium Bitcoin Wallet.
Again, I’m going to create this Tutorial using Android. If you have not set up your Ledger Unplugged, please refer to my previous Tutorial before proceeding. 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. Open Mycelium and go to the Accounts tab.
To get it back out again you just set up a Send from the Balance tab. Choose how you want to enter the address to which you wish to send. You can either scan a QR code, add from a list of known addresses (which I do not recommend), add from the clipboard, or enter it manually (which I also do not recommend).
I then recommend choosing the Miner Fee before selecting an Amount. Just click on it to switch between Priority, Normal, Economic, and Low-Priority. I have listed them here from most expensive to least expensive.
In the upper right you can choose your local currency, USD for me, or BTC. It will calculate how much BTC to send based on the current exchange rate if you choose a value in USD. Or you can hit Max at the bottom and send all available BTC. Then choose OK.
On the next screen you’ll need to punch in a code based on the key printed on the security card and the address to which you’re sending Bitcoin. You will be asked to punch in 4 randomly chosen characters, each one in turn. For the letter highlighted on the screen look at the security card and punch in the character below. Remember that, just like in Bitcoin addresses, upper and lower case letters are different and that difference is important.
Congratulations, you’ve set up your Ledger Unplugged and synced it to your Mycelium wallet. You can now more securely carry your Bitcoin around with you. One recommendation I would make is that, instead of carrying your Security Card around with you, put the information from the card into a password wallet on your phone. You can then have the information with you, but it’s more secure. Keep the Security Card and the Recovery Sheet in a lockbox or safe somewhere.
