I have a Ledger Nano S hardware wallet.  When setting it up, I chose BTC (not BTC classic, not BCH, etc).  I am mining on btc.com and I have the ability to mine BCH and BTC since they use the same hash (SHA-256).

My question is, can my ledger wallet for BTC also hold BCH?  If not, do I just need to set up a separate BCH wallet and then input that BCH address into btc.com for my rewards to be sent there?

I realize BCH was the result of the hard fork in August.  I did many google searches but could not find the concise answer to the wallet question (since on Aug 1, all of your BTC in your wallet effectively gave you the same amount of BCH).  So it made me think, can the wallet be the 'same'?

Thanks guys

Just install the BCH "app" on your Ledger Nano S using the Ledger wallet manager Chrome app.

Then unlock the Nano S and open the BCH app.

Now, when you open the "Ledger Wallet Bitcoin" Chrome app, if it doesn't prompt you to select BTC or BCH, click on settings -> Blockchains and then select BCH.

You'll see your BCH wallet, generated from your Ledger Nano S seed... And you can get a BCH address from that
