How do I add a Custom RPC network to Torus Wallet?

Custom Networks are non-Ethereum networks that are EVM compatible (Ethereum Virtual Machine). Since they are Ethereum based networks, your Torus wallet address will be the same across all the networks. That means that a single secret recovery phrase (aka backup phrase) can access your assets across all your accounts and networks.

Torus Wallet by default supports Ethereum, Avalanche C-Chain, Polygon (Matic), Arbitrum One, Optimism, RSK(Rootstock), xDai, Binance Smart Chain and Reef Chain networks.

Each network typically has its own custom token used to pay for network activity. Ethereum uses ETH (Ether), Binance uses BNB, MATIC is the native token for Polygon.

Please note that Bitcoin, Tezos, Dogecoin or Cardano are NOT Etheruem compatible, so they cannot be added to Torus and require their own wallet.

Please check Chainlist which is an open source tool that lists all EVM based chains. You can add networks which are listed in Chainlist

A malicious network provider can lie about the state of the blockchain and record your network activity. Only add custom networks you trust.

To add a custom network or blockchain that your Wallet is connected to, follow the below steps:

You'll need to be logged into your account at

Click on the Settings tab.

Within the Network section, scroll down until you see RPC and select it:

After selecting RPC, you may see the settings of the previous network that you last selected, just delete all the details. You will be presented with a screen as shown below

Now add the details of your custom network with the below details in the order in which they appear:

Network Name
Chain ID
Block Explorer URL

Click Save to save the changes and you will now be connected to the network you just added.

Your custom network is valid for the session in which you have logged into Torus Wallet. If you log out, you will have to re-add your custom network, but you funds will still remain intact on that network. Our Product team is working to further enhance this feature.
