How to Buy TrustSwap

We received many queries over the last couple of weeks on how to buy TrustSwap and thought it is best we provide a step-by-step guide here.

Our method below involves using ETH in a MetaMask wallet buying TrustSwap (SWAP) on the decentralised exchange Uniswap. To buy SWAP from an exchange, check the list at the end of this article.

IMPORTANT: Please note that it is critically important that you perform the steps below on a computer free of viruses, keyloggers and malware as these expose you to the risk of having funds stolen from your wallet.

We suggest using a browser on the computer (instead of a smartphone) for the procedure below.
