About Lesson

Your Nano Ledger will accept any BEP-20 token, but it might not show initially on your balance. Your token will safely be there, and all you need to do is add some technical details for it to show on Ledger Live and your Ledger device.

Ledger Live displays BEP-20 tokens in three different ways:

  • With a balance amount and its value in fiat. This is for fully-supported tokens.
  • With just a balance amount but no fiat value. This is for semi-supported tokens
  • With no balance amount and no fiat value. This is for non-supported tokens where you will have to add their details yourself. 

If you’ve sent BEP-20 tokens to your Nano Ledger’s BSC wallet but you cannot see your balance on Ledger Live, you can double-check it with BscScan. Head to BscScan and copy in your Ledger Nano BSC address. Click the [Token] drop-down box on the left side to see your balance.
