NOTE:  You do not need to add a token to the NEON wallet before sending to your NEO wallet address.  Adding a token in the NEON wallet is simply for user interface purposes, as well as being able to then send it from your NEON wallet.

NEON Wallet and Custom Tokens

The NEO blockchain is starting to experience more ICOs, which means more tokens to put in your wallet.  This is similar to when Ethereum started to have a lot of ICOs and people needed to add a custom token to their MyEtherWallet wallet.  This guide covers adding a custom token to your NEON wallet in a few easy steps.  Check out this article if you need a NEON wallet!

 

Adding a custom token to your NEON Wallet

1. Open the NEON wallet app and choose “Manage Neon Settings

 

2. Click the “Manage Tokens” button

 

3. You will notice there are a few tokens already listed here.  The current ones are DBC, RPX, RHT, and QLC.  Click the “Add a new token” button

 

4. Enter in the script hash for the token you want to add and click “Save”. 

In this example, I wanted to add the Trinity token (TNC).  I went to the NEO Tracker Asset tab and found TNC to get the hash.  Here is the asset page of Trinity so you can see:  https://neotracker.io/asset/08e8c4400f1af2c20c28e0018f29535eb85d15b6 .  The script hash is 08e8c4400f1af2c20c28e0018f29535eb85d15b6 in case you want to follow along.

 

5. Now you can login to your NEON wallet and should see TNC listed (top screenshot).  Clicking on the ‘i’ will show you the token details (bottom screenshot)  Note that it can take a minute or 2 for the tokens to display.

 

Summary

Adding a custom token to the NEON wallet is a straightforward process.  A lot more ICOs are coming to the NEO blockchain, so you can expect to perform these steps more frequently.  Be sure to check back for guides on how to find the script hash for a token, as well as how to send tokens from your NEON wallet!  For more wallet guides, check out the wallet tutorial page!

  1. Thanks for this. I am new to Neon Wallet. I followed your instructions exactly and double checked I did, but under token balance table is just blank space where you have all the tokens and their amounts listed. Any ideas? Using Version0.1.1

      Hey Jof,

      Yeah, it seems to be a little delayed sometimes. I hit the refresh balance button and then they start to slowly load in. Other times when I re-login to the wallet they appear instantly.

      I would try logging in again. Wait 1 or 2 minutes and then click the refresh button if they don’t appear. Give it another couple minutes and they should be there.

      Let me know if they start showing up or not.

      Thanks,
      Chris
