"Icon URL's" line when adding custom network

Description of the issue:

When adding a custom network, there is a line “Icon URLs” and I would like to know what It does?

How can this issue be reproduced?

Add a custom network to Brave Wallet

Brave Version (check About Brave):
Brave Nightly (mobile) & Desktop
(both newest version)

Additional Information:

When I leave it blank, no tokens have any icons for custom networks.

I tried using https://coingecko.com as the URL but it makes the native coin icon as ETH symbol (Shows BNB as ETH for example)

Hey @cgar420,

We plan on using field to allow the users to set a custom networks token icon. :slight_smile:
Here is an issue that you can track/follow the progress: https://github.com/brave/brave-browser/issues/20256

I am sorry, but the current mandatory setup is pretty st*pid. You are literally making brave wallet annoying and useless alternative to Metamask. Adding new network is a literal nightmare as it requires a lot of digging without guidance whereby MM requires just few important and easily obtainable information (rest is implemented automatically as you know), BW forces users to add things like icon url, currency decimal, etc. which are not optional, but mandatory. So yeah, BW goes into bin. Let me know when it actually becomes a better UX that would be not be such a cancer to set up. Cheers.
