How to set up a custom network?

Currently, imToken supports three ways to switch networks:

  • Quick Entry
    The quick entry shows Ethereum Layer 2 networks such as Arbitrum and Optimism, and EVM compatible chains such as BNB Smart Chain and Polygon.
  • Adding Quickly
    When you click Adding Quickly, you will be redirected to EVM Box, which contains the mainnets and testnets of all well-known EVM-compatible chains.
  • Customize
    If the EVM-compatible chain you want to add is not in the EVM Box, you can use Customize. (Developers of EVM-compatible chains can use this function for testing.)

After you switch to an EVM-compatible network, the asset page will display the balance and price of tokens you own on that chain.
