Viewing your NFTs on account in Ledger Live

My NFT is not showing in Ledger Live

  • Some NFTs may take some time to update the metadata (NFT's information) from the explorers API. As a result, you may not be able to see your NFT's image.
  • If your NFT is not loading the image, try to refresh metadata on OpenSea or Rarible.
  • It may take up to 24 hours for the information to get updated.
  • If your NFT does not meet the ERC721 or ERC1155 standards (e.g: CryptoPunks collection), it will not show up in Ledger Live. In that case, you can use OpenSea with MetaMask to access NFTs stored on your Ledger account.
