Earlier today, hardware wallet provider Ledger flagged an issue that prevented users from sending Cardano assets or adding a new account.
In a Twitter update, it stated that Ledger Live was experiencing sync issues with the Cardano blockchain, which returned an error message when trying to send Cardano assets or adding a new account.

Within almost two hours of the issue being detected by the Ledger support team, the wallet provider announced that the issue had been fixed and that users should now be able to transact normally on Ledger Live.
In June 2022, Ledger Live announced support for Cardano, allowing users to send, receive, buy and manage ADA directly.
A month later, support for 100 more Cardano-based tokens was added by Ledger Live. The list of tokens supported by Ledger includes World Mobile Token (WMT), ADAX (ADAX) and several others.
