@402PaymentRequired I’ve been watching your Wasabi videos. Suppose someone has coinbase coins on a Ledger Nano S. They send those coins to Wasabi for anonymizing. Is generating a new wallet with the ledger sufficient to store the Wasabi coins, or does the ledger need reset or is an entirely new hardware wallet needed to ensure anonymity?

@LibertyRex @402PaymentRequired

As long as Coinbase hasn't directly interacted with your ledger, and you use new, transactionally-empty addresses on your ledger to return your CoinJoin'd coins you should be fine.

I also highly suggest not using the official Ledger Software and switching over to Electrum as your interface (You may have already done this, but I'm just putting this out there).

@LibertyRex

If that your ledger has been kept away from web-apps or wallets that leak your Pubkey, no problem.

If you're not sure, it would be a good opportunity to create a new seed (with the ledger you can do it offline) and start from scratch connected to the Electrum Personal Server.

I don't know what your situation is...

@402PaymentRequired let’s just say I’m more like the cat than the penguin 😕

@LibertyRex

haha!
If you understand the issues, you should know what to do.

- There's no point in coinjoining if you then don't rigorously manage your outputs (wallet with coin control)

- If you want to keep keys offline, the easiest way with a ledger is go Electrum+Personal server

If you're not ready to do all this properly, you should be in no hurry to anonymize your coins.

@402PaymentRequired Yeah I’ve got Electrum +Personal server running. Seriously, I’ve been searching how to bitcoin on and off for a little over three years. I’ve learned more from your videos than anything else. I’m up to the Wasabi videos but haven’t downloaded it yet.

@LibertyRex

If you have everything up and running, as I said, there's no harm in moving your anonymized bitcoin to a new set of private keys... just in case you did something stupid in the past ...😅

@LibertyRex You can move those outputs from Wasabi back to new addresses on the Ledger and no one would know they were associated with the old Coinbase Ledger addresses.
