As 2017 wraps up, I have finally ordered a Ledger Nano S, for my small crypto holdings.

Currently I am 100% on exchanges, but as I seem to succeed at day trading and my BTC holdings increase, I have decided to move a percentage from the exchange to my new hardware wallet.

I figure I will move 0.05 BTC into hardware cold storage each month. This will also allow me to take advantage of all the upcoming hardforks, airdrops, and basically free money.

The question is, how to minimize cost in doing so.

The exchange has a 0.00050000 BTC fee to withdraw BTC, then there are the miner fees.

Its complex.

I wish there was a simple calculator.
