Uniswap is a Decentralized Trading Protocol, allowing liquidity providers and traders to participate in a financial marketplace that is open and accessible to all.
Other than purchasing via our Auctions, Uniswap is the only other place to buy AXN at this time.
Instructions for buying AXN on Uniswap
This tutorial presumes you already have a MetaMask wallet setup.
Always make sure the URL in the address bar is app.uniswap.org.
The first time you use Uniswap to purchase ANY token, you will see this Import Token screen. Click Import.
You will now see the main Uniswap interface:
Click Connect Wallet at the top right to connect your MetaMask wallet
You should now see your ETH balance shown in the interface, and AXN as the selected 'to' token.
Enter the amount of ETH (or other tokens) that you wish to trade for AXN.
Make sure to leave at least 0.1 ETH in your wallet at all times, this is to cover gas fees when trading the coin back to eth, or staking etc.
Check your slippage, this is hidden under the settings cog at the top right of the centre window. You should always leave this at 0.5% when buying Axion. Click here for more details about slippage.
Press Swap followed by Confirm Swap
A MetaMask transaction window will open, showing you the transaction fee (gas) and the total amount. Click Confirm.
Your transaction will then be submitted to the blockchain for processing. Please wait, do not send repeated transactions as only one can be processed at a time.
After a short while, a notification should pop up on the Uniswap page saying Transaction Successful
