Using Metamask​

  1. While accessing the platform through a mobile device, you can use MetaMask's in-app browser to connect to app.uniswap.org. Alternatively, if you are using a desktop browser, you can use the MetaMask extension for your browser to connect to the platform.

  2. To get started, click on the Connect Wallet button located in the top-right corner of the screen and use the MetaMask browser extension to establish the connection.

  3. After successfully connecting your wallet, please copy the official KAINET contract address: 0xb097dd6a23175c10eaa45a1f410d7eb4cfdafc8a

  4. Once you have pasted the contract address, the KAINET token will appear on the screen. Click on it, and you will see it at the bottom of the select token section on the Uniswap platform.

  5. At this point, you can enter the desired amount you wish to purchase either by specifying the amount of Ether (ETH) you want to spend or by selecting the number of KAINET tokens you want to buy. The platform will calculate the corresponding values for both options.

  6. It is important to note that in order to buy KAINET, you need to adjust the slippage to 5% for the swap. Failing to do so may result in the purchase not going through. To adjust the slippage, click on the gear icon and change the slippage to 5%, as shown in the picture below.

  7. After adjusting the slippage to 5%, click on the Swap button to proceed with the purchase. The platform will then show you all the relevant details, such as the number of tokens you will receive and the estimated network fees. Once you have reviewed this information, click on the Confirm Swap button to proceed to Metamask Popup.

  8. The final step of the transaction is to confirm it in your Metamask wallet. If you are using a different wallet, the steps will be the same, but with a different user interface. Once you open your wallet, you want to use with Metamask and complete the transaction.

  9. Congratulations, you have successfully submitted your transaction! To add Kainet tokens to your Metamask wallet, click on Add Kainet when the pop-up appears. If you miss the pop-up, don't worry - you can always add the token manually later by selecting Add Custom Token in your wallet and entering the KAINET contract address: 0xb097dd6a23175c10eaa45a1f410d7eb4cfdafc8a.​​

Here are some important hints to keep in mind when using decentralized wallets and conducting transactions:

  • Avoid using excessive slippage as it may make you vulnerable to frontrunning by bots. You can read this article about frontrunning to learn more.

  • Always double-check your gas fees before confirming a transaction. The Metamask app provides estimated gas fees and adjusts them accordingly. If gas fees are too high and you confirm the transaction, you could end up paying a significant amount just for gas fees. You can check the before any transactions here: Ethereum Gas Tracker

  • If your transaction gets stuck and won't go through, you may need to send a faster transaction to yourself to dismiss the previous one. You can read this article for more information on this issue: How To Cancel a Ethereum Transaction
