I'm following the Gnosis guide to set a safe app: https://github.com/safe-global/safe-apps-sdk/blob/master/guides/drain-safe-app/02-display-safe-assets.md

when i'm trying to define ETH it gives me this error:

Type '"NATIVE_TOKEN"' is not assignable to type 'TokenType'.ts(2322) common.ts(21, 3): The expected type comes from property 'type' which is declared here on type 'TokenInfo'

this is the definition in BalancesTable:

const ethToken: TokenInfo = {
  address: '0x0000000000000',
  type: 'NATIVE_TOKEN',
  logoUri: '/eth.svg', // will be taken from public/ folder
  symbol: 'ETH',
  name: 'Ether',
  decimals: 18,

when I go to common:

export enum TokenType {
  ERC20 = 'ERC20',
  ERC721 = 'ERC721',

 * @see https://github.com/safe-global/safe-client-gateway/blob/main/src/common/models/backend/balances.rs
export type TokenInfo = {
  type: TokenType
  address: string
  decimals: number
  symbol: string
  name: string
  logoUri: string

I can't find my issue, maybe a syntax issue? (new to TS)

You need to pass in Token Type the object. Import it first below and then change the type in the TokenInfo object as below.

The following works for me:

import { TokenBalance, TokenInfo, TokenType } from '@gnosis.pm/safe-apps-sdk';

const ethToken: TokenInfo = {
  address: '0x0000000000000',
  type: TokenType.NATIVE_TOKEN,
  logoUri: './eth.svg',
  symbol: 'ETH',
  name: 'Ether',
  decimals: 18,
