Hardware Wallet - Bulk Buy (Group Purchase)

Just wanted to ask, once you have one of these wallets, do you then transfer your current Bitcoin and Ether onto this wallet, if so is there a cost involved when doing this? I have small amount of Bitcoin in Luno and store Ether in Exodus, do you still do all your buying and selling on these platforms then transfer to hardware wallet? Does this not then incur extra costs? Sorry just trying to clarify things?

Yes, you transfer your bitcoin and Ether to the wallet. The cost to fund your wallet will probably be network fees on exodus, and luno, I am not sure if luno has a withdrawal fee too.
You can still use luno and exodus to buy bitcoin and Ethereum and then transfer it. You can also try ice cubed, they have just recently added Ethereum to their trading platform, so you can buy Ethereum with Rand (https://ice3x.com/eth-zar).
Storing your bitcoin on Luno or any exchange means you dont control the private keys, so you are relying on them to secure your bitcoin, which most exchanges do well, BUT there are times when exchanges do get hacked as they are prime targets. There is a saying that there are exchanges that have been hacked, and those that are going to be hacked.

Not prepared to wait forever though, so are we doing this or not?

On the other hand it would probably just be easier and simpler to install my current wallet on usb drive and password protect it, or get a secondary smartphone that hidden somewhere in the house.

True, a hardware wallet is secure and makes things really simple, but you can totally secure all your bitcoin and other crypto without spending a cent using stand alone wallets, or apps. It is not as elegant, easy to use, and pretty, but it works.

Just heard back from Ledger.


Hello <My name>,

We just got your message, thanks for writing in! 

For the past weeks, the growth of the cryptocurrency space has been incredible and demand for Ledger's product went through the roof.

This resulted into a massive order queue (there is currently a 6 weeks lead time on all our products) and in a very large number of customer support tickets (ranging from where is my order to questions about functionalities of our products, but also coin support requests, issues on transactions, devices etc). Normal questions and normal tickets but at a x10 scale minimum.

This sudden growth came a little bit surprise, and while we were already in the course of scaling our operations, it clearly wasn't enough.

As of today we have several hundreds of unresponded tickets with an already 48h waiting time. We are of course doing what we can, but we are severely failing at delivering a first class support regarding responses time.

Three new customer support agents are arriving in the coming days and it's going to help a lot. We are recruiting as fast as possible but it takes an incomprehensible amount of time.

We thank you for your patience and understanding while we are scaling our operations. Ledger's first goal has always been to deliver maximum customer satisfaction, and while we are clearly behind at the moment, these difficulties are only a by-product of our extraordinary growth, and not at all a lack of will.

Screw it, I'm getting secondary smartphone, pin protect plus fingerprint protection should be more than sufficient.

Is Exodus a secure wallet, any problems you know of?

Are you only wanting to secure bitcoin? I have an original ledger nano, for bitcoin only for 0.035. Its the last one I have, and they are not making anymore since the Nano S is the upgrade with a screen and multi currency.
If you are wanting to only secure bitcoin, its perfect, and very secure.

So that would be roughly R2500 ???

Does it have to be BTC or can ZAR EFT be used?

Yes, the price is whatever 0.069 BTC is at the time....right now, that is R2489 (@R36085 per BTC)....day before yesterday that was about R2300, the price in Rand will fluctuate.

It is bitcoin payment only, no ZAR EFT
