Keeping my cryptos secure with the Ledger Nano S


I just received the Ledger Nano S hardware wallet. As my crypto portfolio is growing I thought it was time to buy a hardware wallet. I will make some follow up videos on how I set it up.


Ledger Nano S unboxed: read the "Did you notice? message


Ledger Nano attestation security demo

The Ledger Nano S came packaged without a seal and just had some foil rapping. If you watched my video you know I was a bit suprised about that. But all was soon cleared up as I opened the packaging and read the "Dit you notice?" message. Here is the video I mention and that explains how your Ledger Nano S is verified each time you connect it.

Making the Ledger Nano S connect on Ubuntu
Setting up de Nano S is easy. I just followed the instructions on screen and I looked at http://start.ledgerwallet.com. After setup was done I tried to connect the Nano S to the browser wallet, but it did not connect. A quick search found me the solution at https://ledger.zendesk.com/hc/en-us/articles/115005165269-What-if-Ledger-Wallet-is-not-recognized-on-Linux-

On Ubuntu based linux distros it suffices to run following command in the terminal:

wget -q -O - https://www.ledgerwallet.com/support/add_udev_rules.sh | sudo bash

This will configure some rules for pluggable devices.

Run the following from a terminal:
