Learn how to add a custom token to your Dopamine app wallet.

Let’s assume you just bought a token running on a blockchain network listed on Dopamine App; you might not see the balance and other details until you have added it to your Dopamine Wallet. So what’s a token, and how do you add it to your Dopamine app?

What is a token?

A token is a digital asset built within a smart contract on a specific blockchain. It is usually a digital exemplification of an asset in the crypto market. 

The usage might represent a utility, tradable asset, voting rights, etc.

Dopamine App supports many blockchains where these tokens are being issued. A few examples are ERC20 on the Ethereum Network, FUSE, SPL on the Solana blockchain, Polygon, AVAX, BEP20, and Binance Smart Chain.

How to add a custom token to Dopamine App

The easiest method to add a token to your Dopamine wallet is to copy the contract address of a particular token and input it. Here is a comprehensive step-by-step guide to take you on the journey of seeing your token appear on the Dopamine App.

Note: Contract Address (ID) is the distinct identifier for a token.

Fill up the variables

  1. Click add

Your token will appear in the right Blockchain network it resides on. DONE.

Notice

In a scenario where your custom token does not autofill, it means you will have to input the parameters manually. As a result, Go to explorer on your Dopamine App and search for the Token by Address or Txn Hash.

Fortunately, every available coin exists on an explorer. So, type the token name, or better still, Paste the contract address, and the token decimal and symbol will appear.

All done. Hurray! You have successfully added a new token to your Dopamine account. For more content to get familiar with the app, kindly our read other blog posts. Thanks!
