Which way is the most appropriate, to greet a person in the letter? I'm writing him for the first time and appeal to him to ask for advice.
- Hello Username!
- Good day, Username!
- Another wording?
Thank you in advance!

In a formal letter
would be in line with traditional pre-email practice.
I would only use something less formal if the person you are writing to has a public persona that suggests such an approach. For example someone with a loud social media presence, who make extensive use of vernacular.
Hey dudes gimme ur ideaz
