Managing NFTs in Ledger Live

This tutorial explains how to view and manage your NFTs within your Ethereum (ETH) and Polygon (MATIC) accounts in Ledger Live.

 Currently, Ledger Live only supports the display and management of NFTs on the Ethereum and Polygon networks. Please note that is currently not possible to buy and sell NFTs directly within Ledger Live.

It is safe to send and store NFTs in other accounts supported by Ledger Live (such as Solana (SOL), Arbitrum (ARB), Avalanche (AVAX), etc.) as long as they are sent via the correct blockchain network. However, these NFTs will not be visible or manageable within the Ledger Live app.

To view and manage these NFTs, consider using Zerion, available in the Discover section of Ledger Live. If Zerion does not support the blockchain network of your NFTs, you will need to connect your Ledger device to compatible third-party wallets that support NFTs. 

 It's also important to note that buying, selling, or trading NFTs directly through Ledger Live is not currently available. To engage in these activities, you must link your Ledger device with a Ledger-compatible NFT marketplace, including platforms like OpenSea, Rarible, Blur, Magic Eden or Tensor.

 Note for Ledger Nano S users

Sending NFTs is not currently available for Ledger Nano S users. Attempting to send an NFT using your Ledger Nano S will result in an error. However, you can utilize OpenSea through MetaMask to send your NFTs with your Ledger Nano S.

Before you start

  • Ensure the latest version of the Ethereum (ETH) app / Polygon (MATIC) is installed on your Ledger device.
  • Ensure blind signing is enabled in the Ethereum (ETH) / Polygon (MATIC) app on your Ledger device.
    You can learn how to do this
    here.
  • Ensure that your Ledger device runs the latest firmware version. You can learn more here (Nano S users), here (Nano S Plus users), or here (Nano X users).
  • Ensure Ledger Live is fully updated. You can learn how to update Ledger Live here.

 I received or was airdropped an unknown NFT

Viewing your NFTs on account in Ledger Live

My NFT is not showing in Ledger Live

  • Some NFTs might take a while to update their metadata (information) from the explorer's API, so your NFT's image may not be immediately visible. If you're experiencing this, regularly clear the cache in Ledger Live. Note, it can take up to 24 hours for the information to update.

     Metadata for Ethereum (ETH) NFTs

    NFTs on Ethereum are using Ledger's own indexer and refreshing metadata on OpenSea or Rarible won't have any impact.

  • If your NFT doesn't comply with the ERC721 or ERC1155 standards (like the CryptoPunks collection), it won't appear in Ledger Live. Instead, you can use OpenSea in conjunction with MetaMask to access NFTs stored on your Ledger account.

  1. Go to the Accounts section in Ledger Live.
  2. Click on the Ethereum / Polygon account that holds your NFT.
    Detailed information about your account will open.
  3. Scroll down to the “NFT (Non-Fungible Tokens) collections” section.
    Your NFTs should be located here.

  5. From this window, you can Send your NFT to another address or View it on Opensea / Rarible / Etherscan / Polygonscan (the link will redirect you to the web browser page).
