Step **3. How to check your balance after a transaction using Jaxx**

Go to your ETH wallet using an Ethereum client with custom token support, like MyEtherWallet.com, Parity, Mist, etc.

To access the ETH address, you need to have the address of your private key, or a mnemonic phrase. (The private key is encrypted using 12 English words)

Look at the following screenshots, they will help you find your private keys or mnemonic phrases in the Jaxx interface.

Important: This method is useful for those who sent their funds to ICO. Sometimes, if the cryptocurrency is new, it may not show up on MyEtherWallet.com.

Thus, to check your balance you need to take an additional step:

Press "Add Custom Token"

In the 'Address' field, enter the ICO contract address

In the 'Token Symbol' field, enter the name of the tokens (usually a three-character abbreviation)

In the field 'Decimals' - enter the value after the decimal point. This value is recommended by those responsible for ICO, but you can try entering a random value(in this case the correctness of the display is not guaranteed!)
