How to Add Your Custom ERC Token to MetaMask

So, you have used TokenMint application to create your own custom ERC20 token. The next logical step would be to add that coin to MetaMask in order to be able to distribute it.

This blog post contains step-by-step instruction on how to do that.

  • STEP 1. Copy the token creation contract address. You can find the address by following the contract creation transaction link on our application. It will lead you to the etherscan page that should look something like this:
    contract address 1 The other way to find it is to follow the link[YOUR TOKEN OWNER ADDRESS], and click on the appropriate "Contract Creation" link:
    contract address 1

  • STEP 2. Open MetaMask and click on the "burger" menu icon:

  • STEP 3. Click on the "ADD TOKEN" button:
    add token 2

  • STEP 4. Select "Custom Token" tab:
    add token 3

  • STEP 5. Paste the copied contract address from the first step to the "Token Address" field:
    add token 4
    MetaMask should fill in the "Token Symbol" and the "Decimals of Precision" fields automatically.

  • STEP 6. Click the "NEXT" button:
    add token 5

  • STEP 7. Click the "ADD TOKENS" button:
    add token 6

  • STEP 8. You are done. Metamask should display the following panel:
    add token 7
