How to Add a Token Into Your Eidoo Wallet
There was a time when crypto wallets could only access one type of crypto asset. Those days are long gone, and, as a result, there are now wallets like Eidoo that give you the possibility to control a wide variety of coins and crypto tokens.
In this article, we will explain how to add a token to your Eidoo wallet so that you can always manage the assets you are most interested in. We will focus on ethereum tokens only.
Adding a token with Eidoo requires two simple steps.
First, you need to find the contract’s address that governs, on the ethereum blockchain, the crypto token you want to add. We use that address to set up access in the Eidoo wallet. If you're not familiar with this mumbo-jumbo, don't worry, we'll take you step by step so that no one is left behind.
As said, you have to look up the ethereum blockchain token data in the first place. This search is done with an ethereum explorer, for example, Etherscan.
We just need to search for the token by name, e.g. Aave.
In the case of Etherscan, under Profile Summary, we can find the smart contract information that manages the token. Included in this contract are the rules that govern the token. For those who are curious, the code can usually be found on GitHub.
In our example, as we have seen, the address that corresponds to the Aave token is 0x7fc66500c84a76ad7e9c93437bfc5ac33e2ddae9. This is the only data you need to add the asset. Open your Eidoo wallet, and you'll get it done in no time.
On the bottom right, in your favorite crypto token wallet you can find the More option. Tap there to see the next menu.
Once there, select Force token enrollment.
The application will then ask you for the token address. Simply paste the one you found in explorer (0x7fc66500c84a76ad7e9c93437bfc5ac33e2ddae9) and then accept the OK sign, up on the right.
When you accept, the wallet takes you to the home screen, and there you have the list with your token ready to receive funds.
Ecco! Lovely Jubbly! Not rocket science, is it?
Now you can start customizing your crypto token wallet.
