Trust Wallet is quite a popular platform for purchasing or trading cryptocurrency. However, at times, you may experience a few issues after buying tokens.

In case, they have been purchased through a decentralized application, you might not be able to view your balance on Trust Wallet.  

This may occur if you have not entered the token to Trust Wallet. Usually, there are four categories of tokens which include Bitcoin, Ethereum, Smart Chain and BnB. If you wish to add any other token, you can go to the filter icon and tap it.

Once you tap on the filter icon, you will see a list of tokens, and you may have the option to add it to the trust wallet. 

In case it’s new, you may not find it on the list. So the ideal solution is to manually paste the address of that particular token. In this guide, you can find out how exactly to do this so that the balance is visible immediately. 

What Can You Do To Add A Custom Token? 

The following are the steps you can take to input the address of a custom token on Trust Wallet.

Before you start the process, you need to copy the address of the custom token. Access the website of CoinMarketCap and tap on the search icon.

Here, you can search for the required token easily and find its address. It can be copied to various websites such as the host one or BscScan. 

Let’s focus on how to do this on CoinMarketCap. So once you have accessed that, look for the search bar or icon near the header of the website. 

Look For The Token 

You may find different cryptocurrencies, some of which may be trending at the time as well. Enter the token you want to add and search for it in the list. In case it is not visible in the results, it might not be on CoinMarketCap.

If this occurs, it is a good idea to check out the official website of the token and copy its address from there. 

Copy The Address Of The Token

Filter The Settings On Trust Wallet 

You can open up the trust wallet and click on the filter icon. At first, the balances of popular tokens like Bitcoin, Ethereum or BnB will be visible.

Since you want to add a custom one, access the filter settings where you will find the option to add more icons. It would allow you to enable or disable as per your choice. You need to manually add the token to the list by copying its address. 

Paste The Address And Enable It

The address that you copied earlier will be pasted in the list as the cryptocurrency may be new and not yet added to the database.

Find the option that says ‘Add Custom Token’ and paste the address and input the details such as network, name and the symbol as well. If the token is already on the list, all you have to do is switch on the option after tapping on it. 

After pasting the token’s address, you would have the choice to enable or disable it. If the ticket is not showing up on the address, you can tap on the option of ‘add custom token’ there. 

Look For The Balance 

Once you have enabled the token, you will most likely view it in your wallet.
