How To Fix a Coin Not Showing in Trust Wallet
Trust Wallet is one of the safest and most secure apps to buy, store, and exchange cryptocurrency and NFTs directly from your smartphone. It’s private, and unlike similar services, doesn’t collect any personal data. Another great feature is that your wallet is decentralized and you have complete control over your private keys.
However, as with all apps and online services, problems can occur. For instance, what do you do if your coins aren’t showing in Trust Wallet? This article will explore the possibilities and explain what options you have.
Trust Wallet is a bridge between blockchains. No funds are physically stored on your wallet. The app simply holds the keys for you to connect to the network, make transactions, and ultimately make transactions. Fortunately, this means that if coins aren’t showing up in your wallet, that doesn’t necessarily mean they’re missing.
- Is the missing coin supported by Trust Wallet?
Although the app does support over 40 blockchains, it doesn’t support all that are available. Unsupported coins won’t show up in your wallet. Thankfully, if a coin is supported, you can try to add it manually.
- Try to confirm the address of a balance.
It’s necessary for you to check if the addresses of your wallet actually do contain some crypto. You can easily confirm your balance by browsing their blockchain explorers. If there’s a record of a transaction or the addresses of your crypto holdings, this will help in tracking your assets.
- Try checking your internet/VPN connections.
This is a simple yet often neglected solution. For Trust Wallet to work properly, you must have an internet connection. Try toggling off/on your mobile data and Wi-Fi. Next, try opening up a web browser to see if you are indeed connected to the internet.
In rare cases, it could be your VPN that is causing the issue. Some countries block access to cryptocurrency sites and apps. Although enabling a VPN does offer an advanced amount of security, it could be causing issues with Trust Wallet. Try checking your balances with your VPN disabled.
- Try reimporting your wallet.
Before reimporting your wallet, ensure that you’ve backed it up. Next, simply remove your wallet and then restore it.
- Try using a different device.
Sometimes simply using a different device will correct the problem, or at least isolate the issue. If you have access to a different PC, iPhone, or Android, download the app and try checking your balances from a different device.
- Contact Trust Wallet customer service.
If you’ve tried all of the above suggestions listed here, you can always contact Trust Wallet directly. Perhaps the app is experiencing an internal glitch and they are already working on it, or maybe it’s a new problem that they are unaware of. You can contact their IT department directly through their website by navigating to “Support & Feedback.”
Coin Not Showing in Trust Wallet After PancakeSwap
PancakeSwap is a decentralized exchange, commonly referred to as DEX, that allows investors to swap BEP-20 tokens. BEP-20 tokens don’t have their own blockchain, they’re built on the Binance Smart Chain and not on Ethereum. This makes it rather unique in the crypto world.
So what options do you have if your coin is not showing in Trust Wallet after PancakeSmart? Follow the steps below.
- Open Trust Wallet and click on the two lines in the upper-right hand corner.
- Next, you’ll see a list of prepopulated coins. Check again to see if your missing coin is listed.
- Go to CoinMarketApp website.
- Locate your missing coin.
- Tap on the two squares to the right of the coin to copy its address.
- Go back to the Trust Wallet app and paste the address in the search bar.
- The coin should now show in your wallet. Simply toggle the switch to the “On” position to add the coin.
If the above method doesn’t list the coin, do the following:
- Tap “Add Custom Token,” and paste in the address.
Your missing coin should now appear.
How secure is Trust Wallet?
In today’s world of hacking and phishing, we should all be careful when it comes to managing our passwords, apps, and bank accounts. Trust Wallet has the reputation of being one of the safest and secure mobile crypto wallets available. That being said, it is still the responsibility of the individual to ensure that they’re using all possible methods to keep their accounts and apps secure.
Once you sign up with Trust Wallet, you’ll be given an algorithm generated 12-word phrase known as a Recovery Phrase. You’ll be then given a wallet that you must immediately back up with this recovery phrase. Be sure to write it down correctly. It’s recommended that you carefully write the phrase down on paper and keep it stored in a safe place.
Trust Wallet also recommends that the user set up an optional passcode on their smartphone as another security measure. To do so, follow these steps:
1. Go to “Settings, then “Security.”
2. Enable “App Lock” and create a passcode of your choosing.
3. You can also set the auto-lock time on your smartphone which once the phone locks, but it will require that passcode.
How long does it take to receive Bitcoin on Trust Wallet?
This type of transaction typically takes 30 to 60 minutes. When this process has finished, you’ll then be able to see the amount of Bitcoin you purchased. Be aware that if your gas fee is high, miners usually process these transactions faster. Transactions with a low gas price usually take longer to process. Miners collect gas fees from sellers, so typically they process the ones with the highest fees faster than those that are low.
