VeChain not supported in Ledger Live

As a result, if you wish to create a VeChain account and manage your VeChain assets, you will need to connect your Ledger device to a third-party app like Sync.
  • Additionally, it's important to be aware that VET and VeChain tokens sent to your Ledger VeChain account managed via Sync will not appear in Ledger Live until Ledger implements support for them.
