Using Nano

Recommended Posts

Evening all. So still suck at understanding all this so appreciate all of you that do understand. 
I used MEW when the snapshot was taken in December and confirmed my flare allocation using XRPScan. I’ve done nothing since, not sure if I should of done or not. Now I know MEW isn’t compatible as a wallet as of yet so I know I need a wallet to claim Flare. I have a ledger nano x, which if I’m correct can be used as a wallet for flare. Now is there anything I need to do to be able have access to my flare when it goes live?

Should I import my flare address into the ledger nano x? Or am I miles off, seems like this is still way over my head.

I am also using a nano. I know that nano are working on Flare integration but that might not be available at launch. I have never used MEW so I don’t know about it, but I believe the process of importing that stuff. I believe it will be possible to import your MEW wallet to MetaMask which is fully supporting Flare. Hopefully someone who knows more can chime in.

Thanks mate. So as I understand it MEW generated a Eth address for me to use at the snapshot. I can see that the flare has been allocated to my xrp address it’s just I won’t actually be able to access the flare from my MEW app as it doesn’t support flare as it stands. So does the ledger nano x allow me to import the Eth address generated from MEW so I can access my flare on the nano? 
or do I need to now create a metamask account and import the Eth address to that which will allow me to access my flare once released? Only then will I be able to transfer the actual flare to my nano x once it’s live?

I don’t know for sure but my guess is no, so I think you will need to create a MetaMask wallet.

Yes, if ledger has on app. But remember that there are a number of things you can do straight from your wallet like delegating your FTSO vote in order to get FLR rewards. Sounds like it will be difficult or impossible to do this on ledger. Have you seen the Bifrost wallet? This is being developed specifically for flare. Once I have access to my FLR I will likely transfer them there.

You should  be able to export your MEW address to MetaMask easily enough. 
 

  1. Go to Mew App > Settings and Support > View Recovery Phrase and write that down.
  2. Go to https://iancoleman.io/bip39/ and enter your mnemonic words above, select ETH and generate. You’ll get a private key. If you’re paranoid, you can go offline and use this website in an incognito window with all browser extensions disabled.
  3. In MetaMask, you can use this private key to “import” your ETH address.
  4. Verify that the wallet address is the same that you can see as your Flare claim in either xrptoolkit or xrpscan

Many thanks for this, it’s the piece of the jigsaw that I have  been  missing.

Thanks mate. So doing this will allow me to access my flare on release date direct?

One last thing, how do I impost in metamask, sorry, never used it before

Yep. This should be enough. You have the key and the account on a supported wallet.

If it isn’t, you and I are in the same boat and we can figure it out together :)

? My Flare have been assigned to the ETH address created by the MEW application I used already correct. XRPScan confirms the amount of Flare allocated to me. All I’m doing is moving the allocation to a wallet that can access them on release correct?

As can be seen in the image. The June 11 period was for those that wanted to change addresses etc for the allocation that is released on go live date correct, but as I had already set the message key on the ledger to my MEW generated ETH account I was already all set. All I’m doing now is moving my MEW generated account to Metamask so I have a wallet that works and I can access the Flare on release date as without doing this the Flare will go to the ETH address MEW created but I won’t be able to do anything with it as it’s not a compatible wallet. Please correct me if I’m wrong as I’m kind of guessing myself for most of this lol

Is Bifrost the better option than Metamask?

Can I do the same, I need to allocate my MEW generated address to a wallet that will allow me access on release date of the Flare asset.

Yes. Don’t worry about it. The wallet doesn’t matter. As long as you have the private key / mnemonic, you’re fine. That address is going to get funds.

I think you are misunderstanding how this works.  You are not moving them at all.

Think of them as ‘on the cloud’.  Whether you use Bifrost or Metamask or any other wallet,  they are simply tools to hold the signing keys and to read the balance off the cloud and prepare transactions for submission to the cloud.

Your Flare were never ever going to be in MEW.  That’s an Etherium wallet and I don’t think it’s going to support flare.  You just used it to get an Etherium compatible address (Flare uses the Etherium addressing scheme) that you could advise Flare as your address for the airdrop.

So mucking around with different wallets isn’t ‘moving’ the Flare at all.  They are eternally ONLY ‘on the cloud’.  (To use a familiar phrase that means somewhat the same thing as ‘on the blockchain’)

But your Spark don’t exist yet...  Flare will put yours at that address when they fire up the network.  What wallet you use at that time is up to you.
