IIRC, they have stated that they will support both coins if the work indeed happens.

Ledger Nano S uses BIP32 to derive their seed so you can use https://github.com/iancoleman/bip39 and run the script. Use BIP32 in the tab and key in m/44'/60'/0'/ as the derivation path. It should give you the master private key.

This is exactly what I came here to find. I have coins on both blockchain.info and ledger nano s and was wondering if I needed to do anything with them or move them to core or something.

Do you have a source of this? Would put my mind at ease. Hopefully there isn't a split but I'd like to be prepared.

As long as your wallet can give you access to your private key, you don't have to do anything. Though I really don't recommend anyone using Blockchain.info wallet.

Thanks. That's reassuring regarding Ledger. And you used to be able to get access to your private keys on blockchain.info but I've read they removed this feature. I'll have to check. Would seem silly if they did.

thanks for all the answers. i looks like i just can keep my coins "inside" my ledger wallet and will be safe.

Are you sure that derivation path is correct? They say on the Ledger site (http://support.ledgerwallet.com/knowledge_base/topics/how-to-restore-my-backup-without-a-ledger-wallet) that you should just use BIP44 Derivation Path... which by default is m/44'/0'/0'/0... to get your private keys... Huh

I can't find what coin 60' relates to?
