Hi there,
Thanks for the informative articles. I am learning a lot from this website.
I have ordered Ledger Nano S online but due to the high volume of pre-orders, it won’t be shipped till Sept 15, 2017.
My question is: in the interim, can I use Exodus Wallet and later on be able to link both wallet with the same private key and use Exodus for routine transactions and Ledger Nano S to store long term CryptoCurrencies?

Hi Kai,

I can’t give you a definite answer to that. Right now, the testnet version of Lightning Network is running pretty smoothly. I’ve used it to buy virtual coffee on and unlock content on – I’m not sure how much work and testing remains before LN will go live with real money… I’m expecting it to be in 2018 but that’s just my best guess.

I have made some tests to import funds from one wallet to other wallet and I only succeed from Jaxx to Exudus.

hi, when is the Lightning Network coming? If it’s coming very soon, I might just leave it on my exodus for a little longer.

Hi Victoria,

There is a transaction fee when sending from any Bitcoin address to another. The only exception is when you import a private key to another address into your wallet. However, it’s recommended to sweep instead of importing, and this method will incur the usual transaction / mining fee.

Lightning Network is coming however – this will allow you to send as many transactions as you like for (almost) no fee once you’ve opened a payment channel.

I thought that there was no wallet – wallet transaction fee?

Hi Sarah,
you can indeed save you funds in Exodus for the time being. Once your Ledger arrives just send all of your coins from Exodus to the Ledger wallet address and they will be stored there. There’s no way to link both wallets as far as I know.

Hi, seems always be considered a transaction. Because if you use your BTC or LTC seed created, for exemple on Electrum seems you only will be able to restore wallet on Electrum. If you take that seed to Jaxx or Exodus it simply do not work. Reverse also do not work

Yes there will be fees like you said – since it’s moving coins around.

But upon sending it will cost you the mining fee no? Moving from one wallet to another will always be considered a transaction?
