Migrating your crypto assets from Coinbase

In this article, we will discuss how to migrate crypto assets from a Coinbase account to a Ledger device.

You have recently acquired a Ledger device to protect your crypto assets or perhaps you are considering to do so. With a Ledger hardware wallet, your private keys (which give access to your wallets) will be stored in a secure chip on the device, rather than trusting it to a third party like a cryptocurrency exchange, or keeping them on a computer prone to hacks or physical failure.

If you have already set up your Ledger device and have created accounts on Ledger Live, you are only 3 steps away from securing your crypto assets:

  1. In Ledger Live, click on the Receive button and select the crypto assets you wish to use. Connect your Ledger device to your computer an open the desired app.

    Verify the address shown on your device and if it corresponds, click on “Copy Address”
  2. Sign into Coinbase with your login details and select “Accounts”.
  3. Choose the crypto asset and the amount you want to send. Paste the address you copied earlier and, if asked, insert the 2FA code

Well done!  Your crypto assets are on their way.

Once your transaction is validated in the blockchain, your crypto assets will appear on your Ledger Live account.
