Setting up Trust wallet for Bitcoin, Ethereum & ERC20 tokens
The Trust wallet is available on all mobile devices and supports all ERC20 tokens, which are tokens built on the Ethereum network. For more information on ERC20 tokens and what they are, click here, and for a list of ERC20 tokens, click here. Follow the instructions below to download and set up Trust wallet.
Before getting started, you’ll need to download the Trust wallet application via the Google Playstore or App Store.
You will be taken to a screen asking you to back up your wallet. Tick the box to confirm you understand that if you lose your recovery words, you won’t be able to access your wallet. Select “Continue”.
Write your 12-word recovery phrase down on a piece of paper and make sure you store it somewhere safe where you won’t lose it. DO NOT SKIP THIS STEP! Do not store this phrase on your phone or computer; write it down somewhere you can’t lose it. We have a separate article covering more security tips for crypto wallets should you be interested.
Once you have your phrase written down, to confirm you have done so correctly, tap the words on the following screen to enter them in the correct order.
Now your wallet has been created you can view your wallet address by selecting the currency you are interested in.
To find your receiving address, select “Receive” and “Copy” to copy it to your clipboard. You can then paste your address into the relevant field on our product pages when you are placing an order.
Under the “Settings” menu, click “Preferences” and you can change your currency to NZD. Then, we highly recommend you set a 6-digit passcode for the app which you will use to open the app in the future. To do so, click “Security” under the “Settings” menu.
To add other tokens to your Trust wallet, click the menu option on the top right and select the tokens from the list displayed, or search a specific token using the search bar at the top.
At the bottom of this screen, you can also add custom tokens by filling out the required information.
