Hello!


I want to keep on Ledger currencies:

    BTC
    ETH
    LTC
    Ripple
    ERC20 Tokens

How to backup it? I know i can import it to any BIP-39 wallet, but what about LTC, Ripple? Is it possible to export keys for these currencies?

What about if myetherwallet goes out of business? How to recover my erc20?

To be honest, i wanna keep on them various currencies and "dig in" for a long time. How to recover it if meanwhile ledger goes out of business, my ledger die, myetherwallet dies?

Ledger have instructions here: http://support.ledgerwallet.com/knowledge_base/topics/how-to-restore-my-backup-without-a-ledger-wallet

They also have a link to their version of the BIP39 tool that will generate the addresses from your seed. Personally, I prefer the one here: https://iancoleman.github.io/bip39/

It has support for:
"BCH - Bitcoin Cash",
"BTC - Bitcoin",
"BTC - Bitcoin Testnet",
"CLAM - Clams",
"CRW - Crown",
"DASH - Dash",
"DASH - Dash Testnet",
"DOGE - Dogecoin",
"ETH - Ethereum",
"GAME - GameCredits",
"JBS - Jumbucks",
"LTC - Litecoin",
"MAZA - Maza",
"NMC - Namecoin",
"PIVX - PIVX",
"PIVX - PIVX Testnet",
"PPC - Peercoin",
"SDC - ShadowCash",
"SDC - ShadowCash Testnet",
"SLM - Slimcoin",
"SLM - Slimcoin Testnet",
"VIA - Viacoin",
"VIA - Viacoin Testnet",
"XMY - Myriadcoin",
"XRP - Ripple"

And I'm fairly sure ERC20 is just a token that rides on an ETH address isn't it? So if you have the keys for the ETH address you should be fine...

I'd advise that you run some tests... ie. create a test seed mnemonic, see what addresses the Ledger generates... then put that seed mnemonic into the BIP39 tool and make sure that it generates the same addresses
