If you want to receive a Solana token you only need to follow a few simple steps:
- Along several other chains, your Solana address will be displayed in your Liquality Wallet as an account, click on it to expand that section and display the Solana blockchain assets.
- Click the Solana native token (SOL) and then click on the address that is shown right below the balance, click the 'Copy address' button.
- Paste the address in the exchange, wallet or dApp you are sending the token from.
Your main Solana address is used for receiving SOL, tokens, and NFTs into your wallet.
Pro Tip: always make sure to verify the first and last digits from the copied address match the pasted address, this small extra step will avoid mistakes and also being a victim of a clipboard hijacker.
⚠️ Solana addresses are case sensitive, always copy and paste your address from your wallet. Do not manually type it into other places as changing one single letter from uppercase to lowercase or viceversa means you will lose funds sent to that modified address.
Checkout our example below where we are going to receive Solana USDC funds (represented as sUSDC in the wallet).
If it’s the first time you receive this token you may need to enable the asset, simply click the hamburger menu button (three horizontal lines) in the top-right corner, go to 'Manage Assets', search for sUSDC (USDC issued by Coinbase/Circle on Solana) and enable it with the toggle:
Now you'll see it listed and it will display your USDC balance correctly.
If you don't find a specific token you received or want to receive in the 'Manage Assets' list, you can also add it manually using the 'Add Custom Token' button. You can go to https://coingecko.com and use the search box on the right side of the page to find the specific token you want to add, so you get all the info you need to fill out the 'Add Custom Token' form in your Liquality Wallet:
Let's search for ATLAS:
Click on the result that matches the specific token you want to add.
Go to the Info section in the right site of the page and copy the Contract Address: ATLASXmbPQxBUYbxPsV97usA3fPQYEqzQBUHgiFCUsXx
Other tokens exist on several blockchains, e.g. the USDC token, so the Info section for those show you a dropdown menu and you need to select the contract for Solana to copy the contract address you are looking for.
When you paste the Contract Address you've copied for Solana in the add Custom Token section in Liquality, usually the form will be autofilled with the rest of the details:
If the form doesn't get filled out automatically, you can lookup the contract address at a block explorer like https://solscan.io and you'll see the token's details, like the decimals spaces.
