DAO1 has produced three guides for people that might not be so knowledgeable on how to use Decentralized Exchanges.
This guide will be the second of three, namely, how to buy DAO1 tokens on SafeSwap.
Hardware: A Smartphone or a Laptop with Internet Access.
Access to USDT and Ethereum, for example on a Centralized Exchange such as Binance.
(We find that the easiest way to get USDT and ETH is through Binance, where one can simply deposit money through a credit/debit card/bank account and buy USDT and a little Ethereum for fees almost instantly)
We will be buying DAO1 tokens with USDT on SafeSwap in this guide:
Step 1: Get MetaMask Wallet either as a browser extension on your laptop (we prefer the browser Brave) or download it as an app to your smartphone at: https://metamask.io/ or the relevant App Store. (It’s free).
Set it up and write the seed phrase down on a piece of paper for recovery, in case you lose your device.
Step 2: Copy the MetaMask Address of your Metamask Wallet
Step 3: Send USDT and a little ETH for fees via the ERC20 Network to the address from your wallet on an exchange such as Binance, or wherever you hold USDT and ETH.
On Binance, go to Wallet, then click Withdraw, and search for USDT. Then click withdraw, paste the Metamask Wallet Address, and select the ERC20 Network, and confirm the Withdrawal.
Then do the same for ETH (about 0.005–0.01 ETH).
This image shows the Metamask Wallet in the Brave Browser, where one can hold the cursor and copy the Metamask address to where one is sending USDT and ETH from via the ERC20 network.
This image shows the Withdrawal Process from Binance, where one pastes the MetaMask address in the Address field, selects the ERC20 Network, and finally chooses the amount of USDT or ETH one wants to send. It will take between 3–15 minutes to send the USDT and ETH, all depending on the Ethereum Networks congestion. After sending the USDT, do the same for ETH.
Once we have USDT and Ethereum (ETH) on our Metamask wallet, we can proceed to buy DAO1 tokens on SafeSwap:
