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.

Step 1.

Before getting started, you’ll need to download the Trust wallet application via the Google Playstore or App Store.

Step 2.

Once installed, select “Create a New Wallet”. Read the Privacy Policy and Terms of Service then tick the box to confirm and press “Continue”.

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”.

Step 3.

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.

Step 5.

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.

Step 6.

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.

  1. Hi how do I enable wallet to swap from BTC to eth….
    Token icon for BTC doesn’t show?
    And is there a BTC CONTRACT Code I can copy into search?…
    I can’t find one…
    Thankyou

  2. Hi dear , my trust walit showing erc20 powerbit ( PBG) balance 900 usd and up and down everyday same ETH market price. How can i get this money. Thanks and best regards

    • Hi there,

      PGB isn’t a token we support at this stage. Instead, you may be able to swap it for something like BTC or ETH and then you can look at selling that to us via a verified BitPrime account.

      Regards,
      Victoria

  3. My wallet won’t let me put erc20 token on it I have tokens that have been sent to it but it doesn’t give me ethereum option all custom turn out bep20 please help

  4. Yes, I have the same problem as I just got a new phone and set up my wallet again on the new one but it no longer gives me the option to choose the Network when adding a custom token so defaults to Bep-20.
