How to Claim Komodo (KMD) Reward from Ledger Nano S?
Ledger Nano S is one of the most secured HW wallet out there. HW wallets keep your funds secure and never expose your private key, even while doing a transaction. The Nano S made by Ledger can store multiple cryptocurrency and let you use them securely along with acting as a 2FA device as well. It supports Komodo (KMD) coin. You can send and receive only though. The Ledger hardware wallets doesn’t support Komodo’s 5% active user rewards. If you send any Komodo from your Ledger wallet, you will loose the reward.
Now, There is a way to claim the accrued KMD reward. I’ll explain how to claim in this article. Read along.

How to secure and access my Komodo / SuperNET assets?
It is recommended to have an extra Ledger Nano S to keep all your Komodo / SuperNET assets secure and get revenues. Ledger app can’t handle Komodo assetchains and will show you noting. You can send all assets to your Ledger’s KMD address. When you will get revshare for your assets in KMD, you can simply transfer the KMD to your other Nano S where you can claim reward.
