New EVM-compatible chain
Adding support for a new fully EVM-compatible chain to Wallet Core requires only a few changes, follow the steps here. For more complex chain integrations, see general new blockchain docs.
ChainID. EVM chains have a unique ChainID, such as
Derivation pathused. Most EVM chains use Ethereum derivation path,
"m/44'/60'/0'/0/0"(but not all).
CoinID. Most EVM chains do not have a SLIP 44 CoinID, but some do. We'll see below what to use if one is not available.
- Add chain information to
registry.json. Some notable fields:
- blockchain: "Ethereum",
- coinId: If own coinID is available, use that. Otherwise, use:
10000000 + chainID, such as
codegen/bin/newevmchain <chain>to generate template source files, where is the chain
- The result will be a new line in
TWCoinType.hand a new test file
- There are some test cases test derivation for all coins. Extend these with the new chain. If the new chain reuses Ethereum address, it can reuse the Ethereum case in the switch statements.
- If all is fine, create a PR with the changes.
