We want Thunder Token to be accessible in as many ways as possible. We understand that people have their favorite or preferred crypto wallets, so today we want to show you how you can send and receive Thunder Tokens with MyEtherWallet and Ledger Nano.

MyEtherWallet is a free and easy-to-use client-side interface that allows you to interact with your crypto-assets. This article will discuss three ways to access your Thunder Tokens:

  1. Ledger
  2. Keystore
  3. Private Key

Using Ledger with MyEtherWallet

First unlock your ledger device, then go to www.myetherwallt.com and click “Access My Wallet”

Name this new path (eg Thunder Ledger), and enter the following in the Path field:

m/44'/60'/0'/0

The above Path is for accessing Ethereum Addresses that hold Thunder Tokens.

If you are using Thunder Token derived addresses (eg the TT App in Ledger), then you must enter this path instead:

m/44'/1001'/0'/0

Then click “Add Custom Path”:
