Add Token to Trust Wallet

Get a step-by-step guide to add a token to the TrustWallet.

It’s hard to overestimate the positive impact of mobile wallets on cryptocurrency adoption. One of the most famous mob crypto wallets is the “Trust Wallet.” Adding a token to the Trust Wallet unlocks a +25M audience for your crypto project. Also, having a coin logo on the app increases your asset’s reliability and attractiveness. So, find below an ultimate guide on how to add a token to the TrustWallet.

What’s Trust Wallet?

The Trust Wallet is one of the most popular decentralized wallets like Metamask. It allows users to purchase, store, and collect crypto and NFTs. Also, users can exchange and earn cryptocurrencies inside the app. Its core advantage is to give users complete control of their assets. So, no centralized authority can hold any user funds because everything is on the blockchain. 

Advantages

Getting a token logo visible on Trust Wallet gives a lot of advantages to your crypto project. The main of them are:

  • Getting access to the +25 million people who are using Trust_Wallet.
  • Decreasing the risk of fake coins that try to copy your altcoin.
  • Growth of reliability and trust.
  • Making an asset more attractive for buyers and holders who use Trust Wallet’s tools.

Requirements

Before applying, ensure that your coin satisfies Trust Wallet’s requirements.

  • First, your token must have 10,000 holders and 15,000 transactions. IMPORTANT: TrustWallet excludes airdrop tokens. So, for example, your application will fail if you have 9000 holding wallets with one coin on each.
  • Second, a startup must have a website with a white paper, a clear roadmap, and tokenomics. 
  • Besides, you must have a working telegram group and at least two social accounts (FB, Twitter, Reddit, etc.) without fake followers and bots.
  • Ensure all texts, images, and logos on your website are original. Don’t copy content from other websites. 
  • A token should have price traction on CoinMarketCap or Coingecko. 
  • In addition, it’s better to prepare a full token audit provided by a reputable entity.

However, the team has a right to reject your application for any reason. Developers will not list fraudulent and low-value projects.

Prepare information

Also, prepare specific information about your coin before the application’s submission. Find below an example of data set for filling a Github request to list an asset on Trust Wallet:

  • Token Name: Galactic Quadrant
  • Type: BEP20
  • Token Symbol: GQ

  • Description: Galactic Quadrant (GQ) is a utility token for the Outer Ring videogame that allows in-game and off-game purchases.

  • Logo: A token logo must be transparent and have a size of 256×256 pixels in png format. Also, name a logo file as logo.png.

Processing fee

In addition, you must prepare a non-refundable processing fee. For example, in step #5, the TrustWallet will ask you to pay 700 TWT (BEP2) or 5 BNB. The maintainer (from TrustWallet’s team) will tell you the payment address and memo inside the Github thread. Example

Currently, you can add altcoins to TrustWallet that runs on Binance Smart Chain (BEP20), Ethereum (ERC20), Binance (BEP2), and Tron (TRC10, TRC20).

Also, note that the best way to complete a payment is to convert BUSD (BEP20) to the 720 TWT (BEP2) on the Binance and withdraw TWT (BEP2) to the maintainer’s address with a required memo. After the payment, the TrustWallet’s bot automatically catches and processes it. So, you’ll see “payment made” (notification example) in the PR almost immediately.

"Merged" means success.
If everything is ok, the pull request is merged.
