Bitcoin Private / Ledger Nano Guide

  1. If you have not already, setup your Nano via the device’s LCD screen
  2. Plug it into your computer
  3. Launch the Ledger Manager Chrome Application (if you do not have it already, you can install it within your Chrome web browser at: https://www.ledgerwallet.com/apps/manager )
  4. If your Nano LCD screen is saying that your MCU is outdated, keep your Ledger Manager app open. Unplug your device, hold down the left button (the one nearest to the USB port), then plug it back in- Ledger Manager should indicate that it is updating your MCU.
  5. Use the Ledger Manager Chrome App to check for a firmware update- if one is available, apply it (you may need to re-insert your device into your computer with the right button pressed).

  1. Use the Ledger Manager Chome App to install the “Bitcoin Private” Nano App onto your Nano device.

  1. Once installed, use the left or right buttons on the Nano device to navigate to the Bitcoin Private app via the device’s LCD screen- then press both left and right buttons simultaneously to launch the app.
