Unable to See Tokens aka How to Add a Custom Token

Adding a new token / sending custom tokens / checking balance of tokens / seeing custom token / ERC-20

Any ERC-20 token can be added to your local MEW interface by following these instructions.

Make sure it isn't already in the list:

  1. Click the Orange "Show All Tokens" Button.

  2. Scroll and click the token you want to load, where it says "Click to Load". You can also use cmd/ctrl+f to search for a token on the list more quickly.

  3. If you have a balance you won't have to load it againโ€”it will automatically load in the future.

If your token is not on the list

via Ethplorer.io

  1. On the "Send Ether & Tokens" page on MEW, click View Balance Only (Must use one of above options to send) and paste your address.
  2. In a new tab, go to Ethplorer.io
  3. Type in the name of the token into their search bar, or navigate to your address and click on the token's name from that page.
  4. At the very top on this page is the address.
  5. Below that there is a field called "decimals", which is a number between 0 and 18.

Removing Custom Tokens

To remove a custom token, click the little ( - ) icon next to your token. This will remove it from the interface. It is not deleting or removing the tokens themselves. They are still safely in your wallet, we promise.
