Install and use Expanse (EXP)

The Ledger Nano S and The Ledger Bue manage Expanse (EXP) tokens. It works on Windows (7+), Mac (10.8+), Linux or Chrome OS. It requires Google Chrome or Chromium, and one USB port to plug your Ledger Nano S or your Blue. it doesn't work on Android and iOS.

If you have a Nano S, it must be updated to 1.3.1 firmware at least.

The Nano and the HW.1 don't support Expanse.

HOW DOES IT WORK

MyEtherWallet is a free, open-source, client-side interface. From this account manager, you can send and receive Ether and token transactions, and check your balance. This service is not provided by Ledger, but you can use it without any security problem as your private keys always stay protected inside the Ledger device.

 

For each sending transaction, the application will ask you to verify it on your device: your device will display the amount, recipient address and gas rate you will have to manually sign, by confirming on the device that everything is alright.
