Extension Feature Highlights
In the all accounts view all your funds across all your Talisman accounts are pooled together and their overall value is displayed in USD. You can click it to see a list of all your actual assets and their individual value in USD. This more detailed view will divide your funds in a free and a locked state.
Additionally to the all accounts view each account has its own view that lists all assets associated with this account.
Other than the all-accounts view the individual accounts allow you to copy this accounts address directly by clicking the copy address icon on the top right of the slot. Just select the asset and finally the chain you want to get the address of.
This will take you to the expanded view of the wallet and open up the send funds modal. There are many different ways to initiate sending of funds. Check them out in this article.
Use the integrated fiat onramp feature to fund your Talisman wallet as fast as possible. Check this article for a guide. You can choose between Polkadot, Kusama and some ETH assets.
Talisman has a powerful one-click staking interface on its official website, which enables you to stake your DOT via pool staking on the relay chain. The suggested pools are cherry-picked and offer great returns, safety and consistency. Check this article for more information and a direct link to the website.
For all substrate based chains e.g. Polkadot, Kusama and their connected Parachains, all token balances will be fetched automatically and displayed. These networks are pre-imported into the wallet.
This is different for ETH based assets. Most major ETH assets are also pre-imported and will be displayed but the less popular tokens have to be added manually. This is possible in the Talisman settings and described in this article.
Also most EVMs are not included by default but Talisman will automatically pick up the network you are trying to interact with. For example when connecting the wallet to a dApp or Bridge of a not yet imported network you will be prompted if you want to add this network to your Talisman wallet. This is described in further detail in this article.
In case you have used some of your tokens for reserving identity, voting or staking that makes them intransferable, Talisman will group them in the locked section. Tokens that are being vested are also in this category.
If you click in an asset's view you might see the token available on different networks. This is the case if a token is interchangeable across networks. This is done via XCM on substrate based chains and can be compared to a classic bridging mechanism between EVMs.
In that way you are able to keep track of all your account specific holdings of a certain asset without having to manually track it across different networks.
Keep in mind that even though it is technically the same token it still matters which chain you use. So pay attention when copying an address as those are most likely chain specific and you might end up with your funds on an undesired chain.
