Below is the step-by-step guide to swap crypto on SushiSwap.
The first step is to head over to the SushiSwap official swap web page, and you will see a description box for swap pre displayed on the web page.
Choose the crypto you wish to swap
Moving ahead, the next step would be to choose our base token, i.e., in our case ETH and the token we wish to swap it with, i.e., 1inch.
How much do you want to swap?
Enter the amount. Now, while entering the amount, you can either mention the amount you wish to spend by typing on the top beside “ETH” or mention the amount you want to buy beside “1INCH”.
Here for illustration, we have taken 100 Ethereum. Have a look at the image given below. Make sure you check on the exchange rate. Here for one 1INCH, the Ethereum is 0.01738.
Sushiswap Transaction Settings
Before we go onto the fourth step, remember a few things or terms beforehand:
- Slippage Tolerance: If there is an unfavourable change in the price by 50% or more, the transaction returns to its original state.
- Transaction Deadline: The transaction automatically reverts to its original state if pending for thirty or more minutes.
- There are two kinds of Interface settings- Toggle Expert Mode and Disable Multihops. Both the interface settings are auto-off as they have risks involved. Toggle expert mode has risks like it goes past the confirmation modals and allows for high slippage trades. In contrast, the Disable Multihops restricts swapping to only direct pairs.
Connect your wallet
The fourth step is to connect your wallet, and you can also do this at the beginning by following the page’s header. However, here in this tutorial, we will be doing it now. So first, we will be connecting our Metamask wallet.
Give your password and unlock Metamask. Remember to connect to the correct network.
