Hi there,

so from what I understand you solved the problem? Always make sure you’re on the right network in MetaMask when importing a token so that you see the right amount.

If you did not solve it and I understood incorrectly, could you provide a more in-depth description of what did you do so far regarding this issue please?

Thank you

Yes , i apply for token 18 decimal, then the the contract add the amount with the 18 ,so when i transfer small amount it comes 0.00 when i rise the amount it solved

Good job for solving your issue, token “decimals” refer to how divisible a token can be. For example, if a token has 2 decimals, you can have 1.01 or 1.99 of that token, but not 1.001.

If a token has 18 decimals, which is common for many Ethereum-based tokens, it means you can have very small fractions of a token, like 1.000000000000000001.

Different token contracts choose different numbers of decimals based on what the token is used for. A token meant to represent a high-value asset might not need many decimals because people usually don’t divide it into tiny fractions. On the other hand, a token used for everyday transactions or micro-payments needs more decimals so it can be split into smaller amounts, making it more versatile for various uses.

In short, the number of decimals in a token contract is set to match the token’s intended use, balancing the need for divisibility with practicality.

Always make sure you check the token’s contract address on the block explorer to see what decimals it has, because if you import a token in MetaMask and modify the decimal amount to an incorrect one you could have an incorrect amount displayed.
