How to Add a Custom Token to Trust Wallet

If you recently bought a token using a decentralized application on Trust Wallet, you might not be able to see its balance.

This is because you haven’t added the token/crypto to Trust Wallet yet.

By default, Trust Wallet has 4 tokens.

This includes “Bitcoin”, “Ethereum”, “BNB”, and “Smart Chain”.

You can add other tokens by tapping on the filter icon on Trust Wallet.

After you’ve tapped on the filter icon, you’ll see a list of tokens that you can add to Trust Wallet.

However, if the token is new, you won’t be able to find it on the list.

Hence, you need to manually add the token by pasting its address.

In this guide, you’ll learn how to add a custom token/crypto/coin on Trust Wallet so that you can see its balance.

After you’ve tapped on the filter icon, you’ll see a list of cryptocurrencies that you can enable to disable.

However, you might not be able to see the token/crypto that you want to add.

To begin with, you need to copy the token’s address.

You can copy the token’s address on various websites.

This includes CoinMarketCap, BscScan, and more.

In this guide, we’ll use CoinMarketCap to copy the token’s address.

Firstly, open a browser (e.g., Safari, Chrome) and go to coinmarketcap.com.

Once you’re on CoinMarketCap, tap on the search icon on the header of the site.

2. Search for the token on CoinMarketCap

Next, tap on the “LuckyPig” token to view it.

If the token that you want to add does not show up, it means that it’s not on CoinMarketCap yet.

If that’s the case, you need to go to the token’s official website to copy its address.

You can add any token/crypto/coin on Trust Wallet by pasting its address.

However, the token might not be available on CoinMarketCap.

If that’s the case, you need to copy its contract address on the official token’s website or on BscScan.
