How do I send or exchange an asset that runs on another network?

Many of the tokens in Exodus run on another network, so they require another asset to pay for transaction fees, or gas.

How can I tell which network a token uses?

It's important to know which network your assets run on when you are to sending, receiving, or exchanging assets in Exodus.

To quickly identify the network of an asset in Exodus, you can look at the network badge or the network logo. For tokens that use multiple networks, you can also use the dropdown menu in the token's wallet to select a network.

If an asset doesn't have a network badge or dropdown menu, it runs on its own network. For example, Litecoin (LTC) does not have a network badge or dropdown menu, so it can only be sent, received and exchanged on the Litecoin network.

Let's take a closer look at how to identify the network for an asset on Exodus Desktop and Mobile.

Identifying network badges

Web3 Wallet

In Exodus Web3 Wallet, you can see which network a token uses by looking at the network badge. You can see the network badge on the top right of the token's logo.

If you'd like to add a custom token to your wallet, please see our guide: How do I add a custom token?

Desktop

In Exodus Desktop, you can identify the network of a token by the network badge and the network logo.

If an asset doesn't have a network badge or dropdown menu, it runs on its own network. For example, Litecoin (LTC) does not have a network badge or dropdown menu, so it can only be sent, received and exchanged on the Litecoin network.

In the wallet, you can find the network badge and logo next to the asset logo.

In the portfolio, the network badge is next to the token's ticker.

Mobile

In Exodus Mobile, you can identify the network of a token by the network badge and the network logo.

If an asset doesn't have a network badge or dropdown menu, it runs on its own network. For example, Litecoin (LTC) does not have a network badge or dropdown menu, so it can only be sent, received and exchanged on the Litecoin network.

Inside the wallet of the token, you can find the network badge next to the token's name and the network logo next to the token's logo.

In the portfolio and the settings, the network badge is next to the name of the token.


Identifying multiple networks in your portfolio

Desktop

You can identify the tokens that use multiple networks in two ways.

In the Portfolio, tokens with multiple networks enabled will display a) a dropdown menu beside the token name and b) a multi-network logo (looks like multiple stacked logos).

Mobile

You can identify the assets with multiple networks enabled in your portfolio if the asset displays the multi-network logo.


Identifying multiple networks in the token's wallet

Desktop

If a token has multiple networks enabled, you can change the network by a) clicking the dropdown menu.

After a network has been selected, you can send, receive or view your token balance on the selected network.

To view the token balance across all networks, in the dropdown menu, b) click Total balance.

Mobile

In the wallet, if a token has multiple networks enabled, you can change the network by a) clicking the dropdown menu.

What happens if I send an unsupported token to Exodus?

Your Exodus wallet is capable of receiving any token on the Ethereum, Solana, BNB Smart Chain, Polygon, Avalanche and Fantom networks. If you have sent a token to your Exodus wallet on one of these networks, you can access it by adding it as a custom token.

To learn more about adding custom tokens, visit: How do I add a custom token?

If you have sent an unsupported asset to your Exodus wallet over a network other than the ones listed above, you'll have to regain access to those funds using a wallet that supports that network and asset. Please contact Exodus Support for help with recovering your assets on unsupported networks.

Please be very careful with your 12-word secret recovery phrase and private keys, because they control access to your funds. Never share them with anyone, and only import them into platforms that you trust 100%. If you choose to import your 12-word phrase or private keys into a third-party platform, you do so at your own risk.

Why do I pay for my token's transactions with another asset?

Some tokens in your Exodus wallet require another asset to pay for transaction fees, also known as gas.

This is because these tokens are created and hosted on another network. You can think of the network as the road and the tokens as cars on the road.

Using Ethereum as an example, the Ethereum network is the road, ERC20 tokens are the cars, and Ethereum (ETH) is both a car and the only type of gas all the cars run on.

Transaction fees are always paid in the primary asset of the network:

  • ASA tokens run on the Algorand network, so they pay transaction fees in Algorand (ALGO)
  • Avalanche tokens run on the AVAX C-Chain network, so they pay transaction fees in Avalanche (AVAX)
  • BEP20 tokens run on the BNB Smart Chain network, so they pay transaction fees in Smart Chain BNB (BSC BNB)
  • ERC20 tokens run on the Ethereum network, so they pay transaction fees in Ethereum (ETH) 
  • Fantom tokens run on the Fantom Opera network, so they pay transaction fees in Fantom (FTM)
  • Terra tokens run on the Terra Classic network, so they pay transaction fees in Terra Classic (LUNC)
  • Polygon tokens run on the Polygon network, so they pay transaction fees in Polygon (MATIC)
  • SPL tokens run on the Solana network, so they pay transaction fees in Solana (SOL)
  • TRC10 and TRC20 tokens run on the TRON network, so they pay transaction fees in TRON (TRX)

How do I pay for ASA token transactions with ALGO?

ASA tokens require Algorand (ALGO) to pay for transactions on the Algorand network.

To send or exchange an ASA token, you need some ALGO in your Exodus wallet to pay for network transaction fees.

Algorand is a network with a minimum balance requirement. You can find more information here: Algorand FAQs - Learn more about ALGO.

For each ASA token you have in your wallet, the minimum deposit increases by 0.1 ALGO. So if you have ALGO and two ASA tokens, your minimum ALGO deposit will be 0.3 ALGO.

If you don’t have enough ALGO for ASA token transactions, you will get an error message that you need more ALGO in your wallet:

The Algorand network requires a small amount of ALGO to send this transaction. Deposit at least X ALGO more in your wallet then try again.

If you have some ALGO, but not quite enough, the wallet will tell you the additional amount you need to deposit (the amount in X) in order to pay for the transaction.

You can acquire ALGO by using our in-app exchange to exchange from any (non-Algorand based) assets in your wallet to ALGO, or by receiving ALGO from another wallet.

You can see your Algorand network transactions on a block explorer like AlgoExplorer.


How do I pay for Avalanche token transactions with AVAX?
