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 “DApp” with one click
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.

Yield farming on Celo
Leading Ethereum DeFi projects such as PoolTogether and Sushi have already joined Celo. Click “ DApp” 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.
