Common Questions About Buying & Selling Liquity USD (LUSD)
What is the best LUSD wallet?
We recommend Metamask as our top-rated wallet primarily because it is so widely supported, but there are other good options like TrustWallet. Trust Wallet is built and supported by Binance, the world's largest crypto exchange. We cannot rank Trust Wallet above Metamask because it only has a mobile version, and the iOS version for iPhones does not have an in-wallet browser, which makes connecting to DeFi apps cumbersome.
How do I add LUSD to Metamask?
To see your newly purchased LUSD in your Metamask wallet, click "Add Token" and copy the LUSD contract address 0x5f98805A4E8be255a32880FDeC7F6728C6568bA0 into the Custom Token Contract Address field. You will now see your LUSD balance in Metamask and be able to send, receive, and trade it.
