Send and receive tokens

You can now send and receive ERC20 tokens. Get started by sending your ERC20 tokens to the Ethereum account of your choice. The token accounts will only appear after the token transaction has been confirmed on the Ethereum blockchain. The Ethereum account you send tokens to will be the parent account of your token accounts.

  Make sure your parent Ethereum account holds some ETH to pay for the network fees of token transactions.

Sending ERC20 tokens from an exchange

When you send ERC20 tokens from an exchange, make sure to select the ERC20 network type. Network types other than ERC20 are not supported in Ledger Live. If you use another network type to send ERC20 tokens, your tokens will not appear in Ledger Live and you may risk losing them.

Unsupported token?

Please refer to our list of supported crypto assets to see which tokens are supported. Tokens that are not supported in Ledger Live can be managed using external wallets such as MEW or MyCrypto.
