How to use Celo with imToken?

We’re pleased to announce that imToken now supports Celo, an EVM-compatible chain aiming to “build a financial system that creates the conditions for prosperity — for everyone.”

Benefits of using Celo with imToken

  • Switch quickly between Ethereum and Celo without setting up RPC manually
  • Explore and interact with Celo DApps by entering “Ecosystem DApps” with one click

Getting started

First, download imToken wallet via https://token.im.

Launch imToken after the installation is complete, click “Create Identity” and fill in your identity name and wallet password.

Next, click “Create”, write down the mnemonic (i.e. 12 English words) with pen and paper and keep it in a safe place. Confirm the mnemonic in order again and click “Next” to finish the Identity creation.

Note: Never share your mnemonic with anyone. Anyone who has your mnemonic could send tokens out of your wallet without your consent.

Switching to Celo wallet

Enter the asset page of the ETH wallet, click “Ethereum Mainnet” — “Celo” to switch to the Celo wallet.

Note: Please make sure you have enough CELO tokens in your Celo wallet to pay the transaction fee before transferring.

Yield farming on Celo

Leading Ethereum DeFi projects such as PoolTogether and Sushi have already joined Celo. Click “Ecosystem DApps” on the asset page to see the most popular DApps built on Celo.

DeFi powerhouse Sushi has committed $12.6 million in initial joint liquidity mining with Celo, and you can provide liquidity for the following pairs to get mining rewards in both CELO and SUSHI.

  • WETH / CELO
  • WETH / cUSD
  • WETH / cEUR
  • cEUR / cUSD

Next, we’ll take Sushi as a walkthrough example for yield farming.

  • Enter https://optics.app/ in the search box and open the DApp
  • Send tokens (ETH, CELO, USD,EUR) from your Ethereum wallet to the Celo wallet

Alternatively, head over to any available exchange to purchase some tokens and withdraw them to the Celo wallet.
