To send tokens, you will need to use MyEtherWallet or MyCrypto’s offline transactions feature or connect to another wallet via our Chrome Plugin.

MyEtherWallet is compatible with any Ledger Nano S device version 1.3.1 and higher (Ledger Live App required). Make sure that you have the latest version of Chrome / Firefox / Opera / Edge and make sure your Ledger Nano S is updated as well says Brian Colombana.
You can buy one directly from ledgerwallet.com, get the Ledger Live app here, and get support at their official helpdesk or Reddit community. You can also watch this video for reference.
1) Make sure you have the latest version of Chrome / Firefox (v55+), Opera, or Edge browser and make sure your Ledger Nano S is updated to the latest firmware (v1.3+)
2) Open a new tab in your browser and navigate to MyEtherWallet’s official URL. You can bookmark it as well to easily access it in the future if needed
If you already have an account, you can unlock it by going to the “Send Ether & Tokens” tab and selecting your Ledger Nano S or Blue from the top-right dropdown menu.
If it is your first time visiting MyEtherWallet, select a strong password (12 words)
3) Select your wallet file / private key or JSON file from your computer
4) Make sure you have access to your 24-word recovery phrase. This is necessary in case you ever lose or upgrade your hardware wallet device! If not, you will need to install a new wallet and backup the old one again.
5) Press the “Connect to Ledger Wallet” button and you will be presented with a dropdown menu
6) Select “Ledger Wallet”
7) You are now prompted to enter your 6-digit PIN. Make sure your PIN is correct, press the right button on your Ledger device or use your other hand if you have two devices plugged in at the same time! If the wrong button is pressed, it may become impossible for you to access your funds until you manually unlock them again via MyEtherWallet.com
8) Now, make sure that the address shown on the screen of your Ledger Nano S matches with our website’s address (our address starts with 0x Note: This does not apply when depositing ETH to our wallet. Always make sure that the address shown on your hardware wallet matches with the one you are sending funds to)
9) You can now send tokens! Type in the amount of ETH or tokens that you want to send and press “Generate Transaction”. Then, it is important that you either enter your PIN code again (if 2FA enabled), select your Ledger Nano S account (1 through 4; look at the icon below each option), or sign the transaction from other wallets/devices connected. In this case, we recommend using MyEtherWallet.com
10) If not signed yet, a popup window will appear asking you to confirm the transaction by pressing two buttons simultaneously on your device: Confirm Transaction (Right button) and Confirm (Left Button).
