Let’s assume you’ve already got Metamask installed on your browser. (If you don’t then install it here.)

Click on Metamask

Open up Metamask. Login if asked to. Then scroll all the way down to the bottom of the Assets tab.

Right at the bottom, you’ll see “Import tokens”. Click this.

Importing a token into Metamask

Now you need a smart contract address for your token. You can get this from Coingecko, if you’re unsure.

Finding a token address on CoinGecko

  • Open coingecko
  • Search for your token
  • Copy the token address from the list

See the Contract addresses under the Info section on the right.

Note, that not all coins have token addresses, and not all of them are supported by Metamask. Generally, you want token addresses on EVM-compatible chains; like Ethereum, BNB, Matic, Fantom, Avalanche, etc.

Paste the token address into the Import Token form

It should automatically fill in the token name, ticker, and decimals. If it doesn’t, it’s a sign that there’s something wrong with the token.

Once you’ve done this, you’ll be able to see your added token in Metamask.

In some cases, you may have tokens with a zero balance hidden. You can change this in the Metamask settings.
