If you've previously used a Ledger's single-key wallet to protect your funds and are upgrading to Casa's vault protection, first set up your Casa vault. Then you'll want to send the funds from your Ledger wallet to the Casa app. This process is essentially the same as you would follow to send funds anywhere else from your Ledger.
Holding your own keys is critically important! As we say, "If they're not your keys, they're not your coins." If you hold your own keys and keep them safe, nobody can take your funds from you.
Ledgers are a great way to hold your own keys securely, but if you make a mistake, you may lose your funds. If your Ledger gets lost or destroyed and you don't have your seed phrase, your funds are likely lost. Also, if someone gets a hold of your seed, they can steal your money!
Casa's vaults have your back. You still have the protection of a Ledger, but it is only one of the keys in your keyset. If it gets lost or destroyed, you can still use your mobile key and the Casa Recovery Key to replace it and recover your funds. And even if someone gets your Ledger's seed, they can't steal your funds, because they don't have enough keys.
1. Open Ledger Live and unlock your Ledger
Open Ledger Live and connect your Ledger to your computer.
Be sure you use the cable that came with your Ledger, or at least one that is rated for data transfer. Some cables are only rated for charging and cannot be used for this.
Enter your Ledger's PIN on the device, using the left and right buttons to cycle through the digits and clicking both buttons to select each number.
2. Open the Casa app
Sign into the Casa app on your mobile device. Select the vault you want to set up (depending on your settings, you may only see one).
Click the "Deposit Funds" (if this is your first deposit) or "Receive" (if you have made previous deposits) button at the bottom.
3. Copy your receive address from the Casa app to Ledger Live
If your computer has a webcam, Ledger Live makes this easy. Click the "Send" button in the left menu and select the account with your funds. Then click the small picture of a QR code on the right side of the "Recipient address" box.
You may have to allow Ledger Live to access your camera, but once you do, hold your phone with the Casa app QR code up to your computer's webcam to scan the address.
If your computer does not have a webcam, you'll need to use an app that you can access on both your mobile device and your computer, like Signal, Wire, or Telegram. You can copy the address from the Casa app, send it to yourself on Signal, and then copy it on your computer into Ledger Live.
Next, click the lavender "Continue" button.
Now that you have the address, set an amount to send in Ledger Live. You may want to send a smaller test transaction before you transfer your whole balance, but once you have confirmed everything is working, toggle "Send Max" on so you don't leave any sats behind!
You can review the fees and set a different option if you want, but "Medium" works fine.
Then click the lavender "Continue" button, then click it again.
Open the bitcoin app on your Ledger and confirm on the screen of your Ledger that everything looks right, especially the address! If it does, click both buttons to confirm on your Ledger.
The transaction will broadcast and your funds will be on their way to vault protection in the Casa app!
