Add Custom Tokens

For most tokens, BlockWallet has integrated a feature to add them easily directly from your wallet without the need for a third-party.

However, for custom tokens, we'll explain the necessary steps, supported tokens and blockchains, and potential risks.

Be aware of the potential risks associated with importing custom tokens, such as scams, fraudulent tokens, and inaccurate token information. Always verify the token's legitimacy and obtain the correct information before importing.

Make Sure You Are on the Correct Network

Before importing custom tokens, make sure you are on the same network where you wish to import the token. To check or switch networks, follow these steps:

  • Open BlockWallet.
  • Locate the network dropdown menu on the top of your home screen.
  • Select the correct network.

Locate Token Information

To import custom tokens, you need to gather accurate information about the token:

  • Token contract address: The unique identifier for the token on the blockchain. This address is used to interact with the token's smart contract.
  • Token Symbol: The short abbreviation used to represent the token (e.g., ETH for Ethereum). It helps users easily identify the token within the wallet.
  • Token decimals: The number of decimal places used by the token, which determines the smallest possible unit of the token that can be traded or transferred.
You can usually find this information on the project's official website, documentation, or social media channels.

Add Custom Tokens

Once you have all the information about the token, you can follow the steps below.

  1. Open BlockWallet and navigate to the Assets tab.
