  1. Setup your BitBox02
  2. Send coins from BitBox01 to BitBox02
  3. Use BitBox02
  • Optional: Ethereum sweep (todo)

Send coins from BitBox01 to BitBox02 (no hidden wallet)

Your BitBox02 should still be plugged in and unlocked.

  1. Verify and copy a receive address from your BitBox02 for each coin you want to sweep (i.e. Bitcoin, Litecoin) and paste it into a text file. Make sure you carefully check that it has been copied correctly.

    The receive address is where your will send your funds to from the BitBox01 to the BitBox02. Note that for Bitcoin, you may have had different style bitcoin addresses in your old wallet that each held funds. These funds can all be sent to the same (default) style receive address you just copied and stored.

  2. Once you have the receive addresses copied into a text file and double checked you can unplug your BitBox02.
  3. Then plug in your BitBox01 and unlock it with your BitBox01 device password as usual.
  4. Select a currency (e.g. Bitcoin) and click “Send”.
  5. Paste the respective receive address from your text file into the address field, choose a low test amount (e.g. 2 USD) and select a low fee. Make sure you pasted the correct address that matches (i.e. Bitcoin address for Bitcoin transaction).
  6. Confirm and send your transaction.
  7. Repeat steps 4-6 for all currency and types (e.g. Bitcoin has multiple address types, you can select all of them in the BitBoxApp settings) that you want to sweep form your BitBox01 to BitBox02.
  8. Remember how many test transactions you made.
  9. Unplug your BitBox01, plug in your BitBox02, unlock it with your BitBox02 device password.
  10. Check that all test transactions arrived on your BitBox02 (you might need to enable more coins/types in the BitBoxApp settings).

If that is the case:

Repeat steps 3-10 with real amounts. You can split it up into multiple transactions if you feel uncomfortable sending all in one transaction. Please confirm that it was received on the BitBox02 after each transaction.

Prerequisites

  • Your BitBox02 should still be plugged in and unlocked.

  • “Mnemonic Passphrase” should be enabled on your BitBox02, see here

Now we need to do two wallet sweeps.

  • Standard wallet sweep
  • Hidden wallet sweep

Standard wallet sweep

  1. Verify and copy a receive address from your BitBox02 for each coin you want to sweep (i.e. Bitcoin, Litecoin) and paste it into a text file, note down that this address is from the standard wallet. Make sure you carefully check that it has been copied correctly.

    The receive address is where your will send your funds to from the BitBox01 to the BitBox02. Note that for Bitcoin, you may have had different style bitcoin addresses in your old wallet that each held funds. These funds can all be sent to the same (default) style receive address you just copied and stored.

  2. Once you have the receive addresses copied into a text file and double checked that it is correct you can unplug your BitBox02.
  3. Then plug in your BitBox01 and unlock it with your BitBox01 device password as usual.
  4. Select a currency (e.g. Bitcoin) and click “Send”.
  5. Paste the respective receive address from your text file into the address field, choose a low test amount (e.g. 2 USD) and select a low fee. Make sure you pasted the correct address that matches (i.e. Bitcoin address for Bitcoin transaction)

Hidden-wallet sweep

DANGER: If you forget/lose this passphrase you will forever lose access to the coins stored in that hidden wallet. Proceed with caution.

  1. Generate a new passphrase for the hidden wallet to use on your BitBox02 (or re-use the old “hidden-wallet” password if you are sure it is secure) and make sure to back this passphrase up (important!!)
  2. Unplug your BitBox02, plug it in again, type in your BitBox02 device password.
  3. Then type in your passphrase for your hidden wallet which you generated in step 1.

    Attention: If you forget/lose this passphrase you will lose access to the coins in this wallet. Make sure to backup the passphrase properly.

  4. Verify and copy a receive address from your BitBox02 for each coin you want to sweep (i.e. Bitcoin, Litecoin) and paste it into a text file, note down that this address is from the hidden wallet. Make sure you carefully check that it has been copied correctly.
