Unsupported Tokens

Rainbow is an Ethereum-based wallet with assets being supported on Ethereum mainnet and the Layer 2 chains. It’s possible to accidentally send unsupported tokens or assets to your Rainbow wallet address.

Here, we’ll discuss some commonly accidental unsupported tokens and how you can go about retrieving those assets from your wallet!


ETC (Ethereum Classic) is a separate blockchain from the Ethereum blockchain. Rainbow, again, only supports the Ethereum blockchain (which has ETH and many other ERC-20 tokens).

If you find yourself having accidentally sent ETC to your Rainbow wallet, your funds are there but you will not be able to view them through Rainbow. If you would like to see your ETC, you will need to use a different wallet which supports Ethereum Classic. You can read more info here on how to get access to your ETC using Metamask: https://metamask.zendesk.com/hc/en-us/articles/360058809292-How-to-view-ETC-Ethereum-Classsic-token-

If you do not want to use Metamask for instance, you can use MEW (MyEtherWallet) wallet. Their official site is: https://www.myetherwallet.com/

🚨 Whenever you add your seed phrase to another wallet, please be very careful and make sure that the wallet you are using is from official sources! If you send your seed phrase to someone who is not trusted, they can get full control of your wallet.It’s also important to avoid clicking on Google ad links and double check the website you are on to make sure there are no strange characters in the URL.
