Moving ICX onto a Ledger Nano S

These maneuvers are advanced. Make sure you understand and do your research prior to attempting even a test transfer. I am not responsible for your crypto should you lose any. I am simply conveying the steps I took to move my own ERC20 tokens to my new hardware wallet.

  1. Your Ledger Nano S is set up according to the manufacturer’s instructions (purchased ONLY from the ledger store or from amazon, never ebay where it could have been tampered with). Here’s a good video to help you through the process of setup, but you won’t install the chrome extensions, we’ll use MyEtherWallet (MEW) instead: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GPpZxOjvU10

  2. Open MEW. Make SURE you are on the correct site so you don’t get phished! (You can’t access your Ledger on MEW with Firefox, use Chrome instead.) https://www.myetherwallet.com/

  3. Add ICX to your custom tokens. https://medium.com/helloiconworld/how-to-add-icx-custom-token-df944450f998

  4. Secure your ICX from the exchange onto your Nano S. You must enable your Nano S to work with MEW by logging into your Nano S, navigating to the Ethereum app, and setting the Browser Support to YES. ***If your hardware wallet is not recognized by your Linux computer, follow these instructions to correct that: https://ledger.zendesk.com/hc/en-us/articles/115005165269-What-if-Ledger-Wallet-is-not-recognized-on-Linux-

Binance charges 1 ICX for each transfer. I sent a test of a small amount of ICX first to make sure it went through to my Nano S before I sent the whole amount. You don’t need any ETH to send your ICS to your Ledger, but you will need some to send tokens from your Ledger.

Here’s a couple of video tutorials I watched and a ledger tutorial to secure my tokens on my Nano S:

(This would also work for other ETH ERC20 tokens)

You could ask your son and if he is indeed a legit gamer, he just might know, hehehe. I guess it comes from the 90’s, though.

I won’t make you use google, try yahoo or bing :wink: hehehe

So what’d I do, misspell something to make it look like I’m an elite hacker speaking in tongues? LOL

I definitely put some time into making sure I did it right. My linux machine required an extra step that threw me off at first, but I wasn’t going to be one of the poor souls that lost their entire crypto investment to a mistake.

You’re welcome! I was going to do an entire step-by-step, but decided not to reinvent the wheel, because the links are good. The linux step isn’t widely discussed, so hopefully that will help too.

When you say you need .01 ETH, that’s not the fee right? Can it be .01 BTC?

You need the .01 ETH to send it, in addition to the binance fee of 1 ICX.

I just did all this but didn’t need ETH in my binance account to withdraw, binance just took a 2 ICX fee to withdraw. MEW is showing the ICX token on the right hand side with my total amount so I’m guessing it went through fine?

Also Ethplorer has the transactions logged ;o

@altcoinchick, what happens if I don’t have 0.01 ETH on my Binance? Would the transfer still go through?

I don’t understand why you need to have 0.01 ETH, since Binance already charges a fee of 1 ICX. If I transfer from MEW or Exodus, ETH needs to be there to serve as a buffer, but Binance is an exchange and already has a fee of 1 ICX, so I am confused about that.

I did a transfer with no Eth in my Binance account and it went through with no issues. It’s possibly that Binance changed their withdrawals in the last day or two?

I don’t know, apparently you don’t need it now, try it without like @HazardX did.

Thanks for this post, it helped a lot!

Is there a way for me to actually see the balance on the ledger or is it online on ethplorer only? I am new to the nano and its been confusing.

Just to confirm when using MEW, it can accept BTC/ICX?
