Komodo (KMD)

Install the Komodo app on your Ledger device to manage KMD with Ledger Live. The Komodo app is developed and supported by Ledger. Check the Komodo wallet page to learn more.

Before you start


Install the Komodo app
  1. Open My Ledger in Ledger Live.
  2. Connect and unlock your device.
  3. If asked, allow My Ledger to access your device.
  4. Find Komodo in the app catalog.
  5. Click the Install button of the app.
    • An installation window appears.
    • Your device will display Processing...
    • The app installation is confirmed.
Configure public key exports

The Komodo app can export your extended public key (xpub) to web apps in a U2F compatible web browser (Chrome, Opera or Firefox). The xpub is privacy-sensitive information, as all public addresses can be generated from it.

Public key exports by default require manual approval on the device to prevent inadvertent sharing of your public addresses. This setting can be configured as follows:

  1. Open the Komodo app.
  2. Navigate to Settings > Public key export approval.
  3. Choose one of two options:
    • Manual approval (default): public key exports require a confirmation on the device.
    • Auto approval: public key exports are automatically approved.
Komodo address formats

Komodo addresses start with an R. This is Komodo's only address format. 

 Address privacy

Komodo transactions are public information. Do not re-use your addresses for optimal privacy. Ledger Live automatically generates new addresses and keeps track of your previous ones. Previous addresses do remain valid, but they don't offer an optimal level of privacy.

Next steps

  • Add your accounts to Portfolio.
  • Send or receive crypto assets.
  • Buy KMD directly into your Ledger Komodo account through Ledger Live. Learn more here.
