To edit a custom token on Trust Wallet, you need to load its original contract address or manually input its token information into your wallet.
Wrong token information is a peculiar problem with crypto traders. In your journey with crypto and smart contracts, it is very likely to have encountered the issue of wrong token information.
Essentially, there are several thousand smart contracts being released under different blockchains every day. One thing to note is that not all of them are natively supported on crypto wallets. Therefore, it is impossible to keep up with these several thousands of tokens released every day.
After purchasing a new token on DEXes, it will automatically appear in your trust wallet. Alternatively, you can add the token by searching for its contract address on Coinmarketcap or its blockchain explorer.
- To do this, simply go to Coinmarketcap.com. Search for the token you want to add in the search bar.
- In the token information, look for ‘Contracts’ and copy the address attached to it. This is the contract address that you’ll use to add your token.
- After copying, open your trust wallet and tap on the filter icon in the top right corner.
- Paste this address in the search bar, and your token will appear.
However, if after doing this you realize the token information is incorrect, you need to manually add the token by filling out its details in your wallet.
To manually edit a custom token, you must create a new token with the right details and remove the previous one from your token list. To do this
- Search for the token on Coinmarketcap.
- Navigate to its blockchain explorer via Coinmarketcap and copy token information
- Manually add a new token with the new token information
- Remove the previous incorrect one from your token list.
1. Search for the token on Coinmarketcap
Start by navigating to Coinmarketcap.com on your internet-enabled browser.
On the top bar, click the search icon.
Input the name of the token in the search bar. Once the result appears, click on your preferred token to view its information on Coinmarketcap.
After selecting your token, you can see every detail, including real-time price, price changes, brief token information, price chart, and markets.
Just below the price information, you will find the ‘Contracts.’ This provides details on the token’s blockchain and contract address.
Click on the Contract information to view the token on its blockchain explorer.
After clicking the Contract details on Coinmarketcap, you will be referred to the token’s blockchain explorer.
The blockchain explorer holds all information about the token.
Here, you can find the token name, ticker or symbol, decimals, contract address, and holders.
To edit the custom token on Trustwallet, you need to identify the following on the blockchain explorer:
- Token name: This is the name of the token you want to add.
- Ticker/Symbol: This is a short form or symbol that represents the token on exchange platforms.
- Decimals: This indicates the numbers after decimal symbol separators. The decimal is useful to quantify coins with very high supplies or small quantities of a token.
- Contract address: this is the blockchain address of the token. With the contract address, you can add the token to your wallet or purchase it on DEX. It serves as a unique ID to the token.
3. Manually add a new token with the new token information
Once you’ve taken note of all this information, open your Trust wallet.
On the top right corner of your Trustwallet, click the filter option to add a new token.
Here, you will find several natively supported cryptocurrencies on Trustwallet. Scroll down to the end of the list and tap ‘Add Custom Token.’
Another window where you can manually add a new token will pop up.
Switch to the token’s blockchain platform in the ‘Network’ section.
Afterward, you can copy and paste the token info from its blockchain explorer to their respective field on Trustwallet.
After filling up the boxes, double-check your details, especially the decimals, and finally hit the SAVE button on the top right corner of your screen.
Your token with the right token information will automatically appear in your Trustwallet.
4. Remove the previous incorrect one from your token list
To remove the token with incorrect information, swipe the token to the left. An option to disable the token will appear immediately.
Alternatively, you can navigate to the token list.
Search for the token in the search bar.
Once you’ve found the token, toggle the button in front of it to disable it completely.
Editing a custom token on Trust Wallet is almost similar to adding a custom token. The only difference is removing the one with incorrect information.
If you’ve read this far, you surely won’t be having any problems editing a custom token on Trust Wallet. Also, you can easily replace tokens with incorrect decimals or balance with a correct one.
