Migrating your crypto assets from Binance

11/14/2018 | Blog posts

In this article, we will discuss how to migrate crypto assets from a Binance 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 located on the left panel and select the crypto assets you wish to use. Connect your Ledger device to your computer, and copy the address that is displayed on your computer’s screen.

Reminder: always verify your receiving address on your Ledger device’s screen, and copy/paste it to avoid spelling errors.

  1. Log on to your Binance account and select “Withdrawals” under the “Funds” menu located at the top right.
  2. Choose the crypto asset and the amount you want to send. Paste the address you copied earlier.

If you haven’t created accounts in  Ledger Live yet, no worries! You’ll need to add a couple extra steps explained below to transfer your crypto assets:

  1. Open Ledger Live and click on the Manager tab on the left panel to install the app of the crypto asset you wish to use on your Ledger device. Follow the step-by-step instructions.
  2. Then, click on the + icon next to Accounts on the left panel to create an account and open the app you just installed
  3. In Ledger Live, click on the Receive button located on the left panel and select the crypto assets you wish to use. Connect your Ledger device to your computer, and copy the address that is displayed on your computer’s screen.

Reminder: always verify your receiving address on your Ledger device’s screen, and copy/paste it to avoid spelling errors.

  1. Log on to your Binance account and select “Withdrawals” under the “Funds” menu located at the top right.
  2. Choose the crypto asset and the amount you want to send. Paste the address you copied earlier.

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.
