I have an older multibit wallet I haven't touched, can it be transferred to a hardware wallet such as Trezor or keep key easily?

Thanks

Is it MultiBit Classic or MultiBit HD?

Either way, I'd suggest migrating your wallet to Electrum first (importing the keys in the case of MBC, importing the seed in the case of MBHD)... And then using Electrum to send to your hardware wallet.

Trying to send from either MBC or MBHD may result in a relatively low fee transaction as the fee calculations in MBC and MBHD are very outdated. Also, MBC and MBHD may have some issues syncing properly and/or opening wallets due to unfixed bugs.

Why don't you send the funds on your multibit directly to some hardware wallet you have. I guess it should be easier since I dunno if hardwallets are compatible in kmporting private keys.

1. Yes, you're just effectively importing the private keys (for MBC) or the seed (for MBHD)... That effectively just replicates your MultiBit wallet, so you're not sending any transactions, so you don't need to pay any fees (Fees will only be required when you send the coins from Electrum)

2. No idea about Green Address... I've not used it.

The main reason for suggesting Electrum is that:
a. I know it works (personally tested it)
b. there are the n00b friendly video tutorials (that mean I don't have to explain how to do it! Tongue)
c. In the case of MultiBit HD, Electrum is one of the few wallets that works with the Derivation Path m/0' (most wallets don't use this and/or don't allow you to specify it)
