Watched Accounts

With Talisman’s watched accounts feature, you can follow and view balances of any Polkadot or Ethereum accounts without importing your recovery phrase into Talisman.
Watched accounts will allow you to keep a close eye on your own external addresses ( such as a ledger you don't use often, but you want to track its asset balance) or follow Polkadot and Ethereum accounts of interest and track their activity (such as DAOs, companies or your favourite Web3 celebrity).
In this article you will learn how to add watched accounts during onboarding, in the Talisman wallet and via the Talisman Portal.
