An Example of Adding a Token to MyEtherWallet

EX. For theUnikoin Gold token(which was launched as an ICO), the following information is needed:

  • Token Contract Address: 0x24692791Bc444c5Cd0b81e3CBCaba4b04Acd1F3B
  • Token Symbol: UKG
  • Decimals: 18

These general instructions apply to all Ethereum based tokens and wallets (ERC-20 tokens and wallets like MetaMask, Mist, EthereumWallet, etc). The steps are slightly different for each wallet, but the gist is the same.See an example of adding a token in Mist.

The key is having an ERC-20 wallet, having tokens sent to you, and then denoting thecontract address, the number of decimals, and token symbol (so your tokens can display).

TIP: You can check your token and ether balances on ethplorer.io.

TIP: Once you have your tokens loaded into your wallet, you can send and receive them just as you send and receive ether. To send in MyEtherWallet, just toggle the drop-down that says “ETH” next to “number to ship ” and pick the symbol of the token you want to send. Share your public address to receive.

ON ETHEREUM CLASSIC TOKENS: The equal basic logic works for Ethereum Classic. However, you before all else need to switch to the Ethereum Classic node (select it in the top right corner for MyEtherWallet). After doing that you can “add customized components ” for Ethereum Classic. SeeHow to Send Ethereum Classic (ETC) via MyEtherWallet.
