How to transfer data from a Macbook to an encrypted SDCard?

I would like to use the option to encrypt my sdcard, because I use this storage for the backup of my phone. Further more I use the sdcard for downloaded map data and my music collection. The last use case is a problem. I can't connect the Ssdcard directly to my Macbook. I expected, to be asked for the password, but macOS Mojave can't read the file system of the sdcard, that was formatted by my productive Sailfish device. Because of 15 GB music, scp is not a solution. It would take a whole day to copy the files to my device and expect an error for such a long process. Bluetooth is not an option, because I can't select the destunation and the Android file transfer doesn't show the sdcard in the tabs. Some ideas? Does someone know the driver for macOS to read the sdcard?

I use ExtFS for Mac, however as far as I know it doesn't work with encrypted drives, unfortunately.

I think a fast connection could be ssh over usb. Unfortunately my Macbook Pro doesn't know an usb port:

sudo ifconfig usb0 up 192.168.2.15
ifconfig: interface usb0 does not exist

Has someone a solution?

ifconfig -a

Install Kdeconnect for your sailfish device from the openrepos.net. After that you can easily transfer files via wifi or usb. That's good tool. Btw. in openrepos there is two different kdeconnect app, so you have can choose which satisfie more you.

I'm not tested it much (yet), but should work.

I have also asked this question in the Apple Developer Forum, but I havent got any answer, yet. I think the new MacBook Pro is using Thunderbolt for its USB-C ports. So I have to choose something else than usb0. I frequently use ssh over WLAN, but this is too slow for high volume data transfer.
