    I need advice @boxminig. My ledger nano s came in about 4 days ago directly from the ledger site but I still haven't activated it (for a couple of reasons). 1. one of the cards inside the box read that I should have a "anti-tampering" seal, which I did not have and the wiring (usb+lanyard) was just shoved in the box, not neatly tied together. So I emailed ledger, telling them my box appreas to have been opened before I got it. They replied about three days later saying they haven't included those stickers since 2017 (totally understandable) and included a link to verify if my device is genuine. 2. My box only came with one recovery sheet. Every youtuber doing nano-set-up-guide videos has three recovery sheets. doesn't this seam a little bogus to you, its fishy to me. I sent them another email about this so ill see what they say. I'm just a little sketched out because I ordered from the ledger website. What would you do @boxmining?

    can anybody help clarify something for me ? i have a ledger nano s that i have sent a few test transactions to with ledger live installed on a laptop running windows 8. i have then installed ledger live on my mac and have plugged the ledger nano s in expecting it to sync with ledger live and display my btc balance after initiating pin number etc. but when i do the ledger live app installed on my mac does not show any balance at all ? does this mean i can only have ledger live installed on only one computer/operating system at a time ? i am worried that if my windows laptop dies that i will be unable to access balance ? as far as im aware the private keys are embedded in the ledger nano device and the ledger live app just provides a viewable interface on your computer for the pupose of recieving and sending funds etc so i dont understand why when i install the app on my mac and plug in the device that i am seeing no btc balance ? i will admit i am pretty ignorant when it comes to understanding some forms of technology and i hope somebody here can help me and point out anything i might be overlooking that explains what is going on here ? right now i feel hesitant to send the rest of my btc to the ledger out of fear of loosing it yeah 🙁

    On the website where I got the Ledger it says it requires Windows 8 and above to use it. I'm running Windows 7, will the browser and interface for the ledger work if it's only windows 7?
    From what you are doing there?

    When i do a recovery of my ledger 1 phrase to my new ledger device, can i basicly access my wallets through 2 devices? Or is the old one useless? So when i upgrade to ledger nano x should i destroy my old one with a hammer? xD

    I just bought Ledger Nano S, there are currencies that I own that ledger says are supported on ledger.com but the apps are not listed in the app catalog to install in ledger live. How do I install the apps if they are not there? Can bring them into the catalog some how? Please advise, thank you!

    Thanks for your video. Me personally, I don't think I could trust this sort of device, I feel I'd want something less easy to lose and far less fragile. I'm likely to keep looking for an alternative, if you know any good ones I'd be interested to hear thanks.

    how do you use the ledger on a new pc?
    what happens if the ledger server goes down? maybe the government closes it or a power serge or a hacker gets to it many reasons could take the server network down
