Accessing ERC-20 tokens in MetaMask
Currently MetaMask does not directly support ERC-20 tokens. However, you can use MetaMask with third party token management service.
Token management services include
- The Ethereum Wallet
- Token Ninja
- Token Factory
Alternatively, to have a user friendly interface to access the tokens, you can to export your private key from MetaMask and then import it in a token friendly standalone wallet.
As of the time of writing, you can display your ERC20 tokens by clicking on "Tokens" -> "Add Token" and then adding the requested information on the form.
- Token address seems to be your wallet address.
- Check you address on etherscan to find your token symbols and Token Decimals. For example, here you can see that the token symbol for EOS happens to be EOS, and they have 18 decimals. https://etherscan.io/token/EOS?a=0xd94c9ff168dc6aebf9b6cc86deff54f3fb0afc33
