[uncensored-r/Bitcoin] Could anyone help me verify my strategy of migrating funds from Electrum (pre-fork) to my new Led...

The following post by 11MoonStreet is being replicated because the post has been silently removed.
The original post can be found(in censored form) at this link:
np.reddit.com/ Bitcoin/comments/7ilw6c
The original post's content was as follows:
I have some btc that has been sitting on my Electrum wallet for a couple of years. I recently received my Ledger Nano S and already experimented with it by setting up the device, writing down phrases, entering wrong pin several times and successfully restoring it afterwards. All good on this side.
  1. Transferring funds. I was thinking about transferring a very small amount of btc (let's say $10) onto HW to just check if I get the address right and to again make sure the restore procedure works as expected. After that I would transfer around 10% of funds, repeat restore procedure with fingers crossed, and, eventually, would transfer the rest.
Problems I see with this approach: default Electrum fees. It seems no matter how big or small transaction I'm trying to preview in Electrum, it's always setting the fee to 0.0007btc, which would make me pay ~$11 for a $10 transaction. So far I figured that Electrum sends the whole BTC on any transaction and has a change address to return the rest, therefore the size of transaction I can also see I could edit the fee manually, but not sure how low I can go with it. I don't mind paying high fee when transferring all funds, but paying the same amount for a fee as the transfer amount itself looks ridiculous. Anyone has tips on this?
  1. I am also planning to split BCash off of the current wallet. I'd like to make sure that: a) I should first transfer my btc onto Ledger before splitting it, so that my btc is absolutely safe? b) Can I then still use my current Electrum PK to claim BCash on current wallet, even if the balance after transfer to Ledger would be 0 btc?
Anything else I should keep in mind or beware of?
Thanks a bunch!

Bitcoin Newcomers FAQ - Please read!

Welcome to the /Bitcoin Sticky FAQ

You've probably been hearing a lot about Bitcoin recently and are wondering what's the big deal? Most of your questions should be answered by the resources below but if you have additional questions feel free to ask them in the comments.
It all started with the release of the release of Satoshi Nakamoto's whitepaper however that will probably go over the head of most readers so we recommend the following videos for a good starting point for understanding how bitcoin works and a little about its long term potential:
Some other great resources include Lopp.net, the Princeton crypto series and James D'Angelo's Bitcoin 101 Blackboard series.
Some excellent writing on Bitcoin's value proposition and future can be found at the Satoshi Nakamoto Institute.
Some Bitcoin statistics can be found here and here. Developer resources can be found here. Peer-reviewed research papers can be found here.
Potential upcoming protocol improvements and scaling resources here and here.
The number of times Bitcoin was declared dead by the media can be found here (LOL!)

Key properties of Bitcoin

Where can I buy bitcoins?

Bitcoin.org and BuyBitcoinWorldwide.com are helpful sites for beginners. You can buy or sell any amount of bitcoin (even just a few dollars worth) and there are several easy methods to purchase bitcoin with cash, credit card or bank transfer. Some of the more popular resources are below, also check out the bitcoinity exchange resources for a larger list of options for purchases.
Here is a listing of local ATMs. If you would like your paycheck automatically converted to bitcoin use Bitwage.
Note: Bitcoins are valued at whatever market price people are willing to pay for them in balancing act of supply vs demand. Unlike traditional markets, bitcoin markets operate 24 hours per day, 365 days per year. Preev is a useful site that that shows how much various denominations of bitcoin are worth in different currencies. Alternatively you can just Google "1 bitcoin in (your local currency)".

Securing your bitcoins

With bitcoin you can "Be your own bank" and personally secure your bitcoins OR you can use third party companies aka "Bitcoin banks" which will hold the bitcoins for you.
Note: For increased security, use Two Factor Authentication (2FA) everywhere it is offered, including email!
2FA requires a second confirmation code to access your account making it much harder for thieves to gain access. Google Authenticator and Authy are the two most popular 2FA services, download links are below. Make sure you create backups of your 2FA codes.
Google Auth Authy OTP Auth
Android Android N/A
iOS iOS iOS

Watch out for scams

As mentioned above, Bitcoin is decentralized, which by definition means there is no official website or Twitter handle or spokesperson or CEO. However, all money attracts thieves. This combination unfortunately results in scammers running official sounding names or pretending to be an authority on YouTube or social media. Many scammers throughout the years have claimed to be the inventor of Bitcoin. Websites like bitcoin(dot)com and the btc subreddit are active scams. Almost all altcoins (shitcoins) are marketed heavily with big promises but are really just designed to separate you from your bitcoin. So be careful: any resource, including all linked in this document, may in the future turn evil. Don't trust, verify. Also as they say in our community "Not your keys, not your coins".

Bitcoin Units

Unit Symbol Value Info
bitcoin BTC 1 bitcoin one bitcoin is equal to 100 million satoshis
millibitcoin mBTC 1,000 per bitcoin used as default unit in recent Electrum wallet releases
bit bit 1,000,000 per bitcoin colloquial "slang" term for microbitcoin (μBTC)
satoshi sat 100,000,000 per bitcoin smallest unit in bitcoin, named after the inventor
