I can't see my Nano after restoring my wallet inside Exodus

What does this mean?

The way Exodus derives your Nano information from your 12 word phrase is slightly different to other wallets. The BIP44 constant used in Exodus for NANO is 0x80000100 (instead of the more common 0x800000a5).

As a result, if you have imported your 12 word secret phrase into your Exodus wallet and your Nano is not showing, this just means your Exodus wallet is looking in the wrong place for it.

How can I fix it?

The only way to fix this is to send your Nano from the other wallet to your Exodus wallet as a normal transaction. To see how to receive funds into your Exodus wallet, check out this guide: How do I receive Crypto?
