= How to list a token
This document describes the process how to submit a request for adding a new altcoin or token (we use the general term _token_ in this document) to the currency list in Bisq. Adding a token does not mean any endorsement of the token. For making decisions in case of controversial requests we use the Bisq DAO voting process. The maintainers of the GH repository have the authority to merge or reject the PR based on the formal requirements but not on "political" objections (e.g. if we consider the token to be a scam, etc).
Please note that Bisq is not implementing technically any token infrastructure, e.g. wallet, full node, block explorer, etc. Rather, we only support users adding a token address as a payment account that will be used to settle a trade for bitcoin. The process of sending and receiving the token is not part of the Bisq application; traders must use their own token wallets to perform the actual transfer.
NOTE: This document replaces the earlier process description in the link:https://bisq.community/t/how-to-add-your-favorite-Altcoin/46[Bisq forum].
=== Block explorer
The token must have an active, publicly available block explorer.
=== The ticker symbol does not conflict with national currency tickers
