So you already "loaded" the wallet with the correct balance? -- Is your balance visible in your wallet itself yet? This to me sounds like you made a watch-only wallet, correct?

Can't you try importing all 4 of the keys in Electrum? One of them is bound to have some balance that way, depending from which script the adress is derived, right?

Hi Adolfin, yes my bitcoin balance is visible while logged-in with Electrum, and at the top of the Electrum screen it says "imported, watching-only". Does that mean my coin is now at Electrum, but it's stuck in a wallet that is watching-only?

My balance was also found at blockchain.info by plugging in my private key. So it's there, somewhere.

I have only tried one of the private keys at Electrum and it simply does not work. I am wondering what to do now, since my Electrum wallet is watching-only.. Angry

Maybe my error is at Electrum's Install Wizard, it asks this:

Quote
What kind of wallet do you want to create?

Standard wallet
Wallet with two factor authentification
Multi-signature wallet
Import Bitcoin addresses or private keys

So far I have only tried that fourth option.. (and the fourth option creates a watching-only wallet)

I browsed through the Standard wallet option and it gives an option to use a hardware wallet..
Is that Standard wallet the one I need to use for putting my coin into my Ledger?

why not just use blockchain.info to send your bitcoin to your ledger address?

that means you've imported by public address as watch-only address
you need to import by private key to be able to spend amount from that address

I have only tried one of the private keys at Electrum and it simply does not work. I am wondering what to do now, since my Electrum wallet is watching-only.. Angry
try re-import again by providing private keys to Electrum

Can I do that?  I figured the reason I am using this Electrum thing is because my bitcoin is basically stuck at blockchain.info.

Something is not adding up here.  Why is this so complicated?

I'm now accepting any new replies to this topic for how to get my bitcoin off blockchain and into my ledger wallet. For I am totally lost now.

I figured it would be easy to just send to my ledger but then I had to open this Electrum wallet and things got a little confusing, didn't they...

Now I am trying to decide if my bitcoin is stuck in Electrum and it is not retrievable?

When I made the watch-only wallet, it never gave me an option to create seeds, because I would have written those down and photographed the screen too.

So my bitcoin is sitting in this watch-only wallet at Electrum.

This is horrible. Sad Sad Is it lost coin?  Why would would anybody want a watch-only wallet?

This watch-only wallet traps your coin in there so it is inaccessible? Huh Huh
