What is a Custom Network?

imToken supports the custom network setting function, which allows users to access different blockchain networks by setting different custom networks. In other words, a node is a “router” for a blockchain network, and users can use imToken to connect to the “router” to access the corresponding blockchain network.

imToken’s custom network feature allows users to use a variety of Ethereum-compatible networks. These include the four popular test networks (Goerli, Kovan, Rinkeby, Ropsten) and the Layer2 ecosystem networks (e.g. xDai sidechain, Arbitrum and Optimism), as well as EVM-compatible chains such as Binance Smart Chain (BSC) and Huobi ECO Chain (Heco).

Security Notes

  1. imToken cannot verify the security of the custom network, so users should have a thorough investigation and understanding of the availability and security of the custom network before adding it.
  2. imToken cannot track the transfer of assets between Ethereum-compatible networks. Users need to understand the deposit and withdrawal mechanism of the current network before adding nodes to avoid asset loss.
  3. The token in test networks and other custom networks do not necessarily have value (even if the token name is the same), please be sure to understand this.
