I'm following the first tutorial on Ethereum wallet. I have created a custom token (HelloWorldToken) based on the MyToken contract. The contract creation transaction has been validated but the tokens don't appear in my wallet. When I check the balance from the contract, everything seems fine. I can even transfer my tokens from my main account to my secondary account. But only using the contract transfer function.

How can I have my wallet display the custom token balance ?

I know you probably need some more info, but I don't know which ones. So apologies for the noobness.

  • I'm on 0.9.0 and I need to add the token every time I restart the wallet. The custom token(s) don't get saved after I exit the wallet. How do I solve this?

This might be due to a bug in 0.7.1. Try upgrading to 0.7.2 and see if that fixes things for you. Otherwise you can try waiting for a fix to be released. Should be soon, judging by the comment from Van de Sande in the issue's comments.

  • Yep it fixed it for me!
