4 Steps To Add Illuvium (ILV) To Your Metamask Wallet

How To Add Illuvium ILV To Metamask

You may want to transfer ILV tokens to your Metamask wallet as you venture into the Illuvium gaming platform.

However, you will need to import ILV as a custom token to your Metamask wallet.

Here’s what you need to know.

How to add ILV to Metamask

Here are 4 steps to add ILV to Metamask:

  1. Go to Metamask and ensure that you are using the Ethereum Mainnet
  2. Select ‘Import Tokens’, and then ‘Import Custom Token’
  3. Copy the Ethereum contract from CoinMarketCap
  4. Double check that ILV is detected and select ‘Add Custom Token’

Here is each step explained in-depth:

Go to Metamask and ensure that you are using the Ethereum Mainnet

The first thing you’ll need to do is to ensure that you are using the Ethereum Mainnet on Metamask.

Metamask Select Ethereum Mainnet

This is the default network for all Metamask wallets. However, you are also able to connect Metamask to other blockchain networks, such as:

  1. Polygon
  2. Fantom
  3. Binance Smart Chain
  4. Avalanche

As such, do remember to be on the Ethereum Mainnet before moving on to the next step.

Select ‘Import Tokens’, and then ‘Import Custom Token’

Once you’re on the Ethereum Mainnet, the next step will be to select ‘Import Tokens‘.

Metamask Select Import Token Ethereum

If you try to search for ILV using the Search function, you aren’t able to import it using this method.

Instead, you will need to go to the ‘Custom Token‘ section.

Metamask Select Import Custom Token

Copy the Ethereum contract from CoinMarketCap

For the next part, you can go to the ILV page on CoinMarketCap.

I prefer using CoinMarketCap to obtain the contract address, as it is one of the most reliable sites with regards to cryptocurrencies.

It is important that you ensure that the site where you’re obtaining the contract address from is a credible source!

There is a section called ‘Contracts‘, where you’ll see the Ethereum contract for ILV.

ILV CoinMarketCap Contract 1

It is possible to obtain the Solana contract address by clicking on ‘More‘. However, you are unable to add the Solana network to your Metamask wallet, so it will be best not to do so!

You can click on the contract and it will be copied to your clipboard.

Double check that ILV is detected and select ‘Add Custom Token’

Once you’ve copied the Contract Address, you can paste it in the ‘Token Contract Address‘ field in Metamask.

Metamask ILV Autofill

If you pasted the correct contract address, ILV should automatically appear as the Token Symbol.

After selecting ‘Add Custom Token‘, you will need to confirm importing ILV one more time.

Metamask ILV Confirm

Once you’ve successfully imported ILV to your Metamask wallet, you should see it as one of your assets under the Ethereum Mainnet.

Metamask ILV Added

This will allow you to view any ILV that you’ve deposited via the ERC20 network!


ILV is an ERC20 native token, hence you can deposit ILV via the ERC20 network to your Metamask Wallet. Although ILV has a Solana contract address, you can’t add it to your Metamask wallet!

You will need to copy the ILV contract address from a trusted source like CoinMarketCap, and then paste it under the ‘Import Custom Token’ field on Metamask.

This process is similar to how you can add other tokens such as GODS, OHM or DYDX.
