How to Import Tokens in Hana

In order to see BSC-based assets like BNB and BUSD in your Hana wallet, you’ll need to import the token contracts. To do this, click on the gear icon in the Hana menu bar, and click “Manage Tokens”.
Manage tokens in the Hana wallet.
Click the “+” icon in the upper right corner, and input the details for the token you want to add. For this example, we’ll add the BNB IRC-2 token to Hana. Once you input the contract address, Hana should automatically query the ICON blockchain and populate the remaining fields with the correct information.
  • Contract Address: cx077807f2322aeb42ea19a1fcc0c9f3d3f35e1461 (referenced above)
  • Token Name: btp-0x38.bsc-BNB
  • Token Symbol: BNB
  • Decimals: 18
Add the BNB token to the Hana wallet.
After adding the custom token, you’ll be able to see the token balance in your Hana wallet.

How to Import Tokens in MetaMask

In order to see ICON-based assets like ICX and bnUSD in your BSC-configured MetaMask wallet, you’ll need to import the token contracts. To do this, click “Import Tokens” on the MetaMask UI.
Import tokens in MetaMask.
For this example, we’ll add the ICX BEP-20 token to MetaMask. Once you input the contract address, MetaMask should automatically query the BSC blockchain and populate the remaining fields with the correct information.
  • Contract Address: 0x9b7b6A964f8870699Ae74744941663D257b0ec1f
  • Token Symbol: ICX
  • Token Decimal: 18
Import the ICX BEP-20 token in MetaMask.
Click the “Add Custom Token” to finish the import process. At this point, you’ll be able to see BEP-20 ICX in MetaMask.
