๐ŸฅžPancake Swap

Pancakeswap is a leading decentralized crypto exchange that runs on the Binance Smart Chain

This chain has much cheaper fees than the ETH chain and is a safe option if you are planning to only buy a small portion of XCAD.

XCAD can be traded on Pancakeswap without needing to create an account as you would have on an exchange.

Step 1. Create a wallet

To trade on Pancakeswap, you will need a wallet on the BSC Network. There are many Popular wallets out there, some of the most popular being โ€œTrustWalletโ€ or โ€œMetamaskโ€.

Creating a wallet is very simple, for this example, we are going to use Metamask & Trust Wallet, Metamask is a browser extension that can be added to multiple different browsers, the most popular being google chrome, whilst Trust wallet works flawlessly on mobile and makes it super easy to BSC users to add funds to their account.

To add Metamask as a Google Chrome extension, click here to visit the official chrome store link. It is also available in other browsers like Firefox. You can download Trust wallet from your phoneโ€™s app store by just searching โ€œTrust Walletโ€ in the search filters or by visiting here.

Once you have added the wallet to your browser or downloaded it on your phone, simply create your account. Bear in mind you will be given an account seed phrase. Do NOT share this phrase with anyone or it will give them access to your account.

Step 2. Add funds

From Exchange

The first way you can add funds to your Metamask is by withdrawing it from an exchange. Simply go to the withdrawal page of your exchange and choose which token you want to withdraw.

Donโ€™t forget that you will also need to withdraw BNB to pay for the networkโ€™s gas fees.

In order to buy XCAD on PancakeSwap, we recommend withdrawing BUSD as this is XCAD's pairing. You can also use BNB if you want to do everything on a single transaction.

Please be careful when withdrawing funds that you select the right network. If you choose the wrong network you risk losing assets.

Via Credit/Debit Card

Adding funds to Trustwallet from your mobile device is actually quite easy to do. Firstly, go to the โ€œBuyโ€ page which is also circled above. You will then be asked to select a coin to buy.

In this case, we recommend buying BNB as it will pay for the gas fees on Pancake swap and used to purchase XCAD tokens. Insert the amount you want to purchase and your card information to complete the transaction.

Step 3. Swap for XCAD

From an Exchange

Firstly go to Pancake Swap and input the trading pair of XCAD & BUSD into the correct boxes, or use the coin/token that matches what you have bought in the previous step.

Connecting your wallet to pancake swap is quite simple. If you are using Metamask on your browser, just hit the โ€œConnect Walletโ€ button in the top right corner and approve the connection via the wallet's pop-up.

Connecting via Trustwallet can be a bit more tricky, but nonetheless is still quite simple. Once you visit Pancake Swap on your mobile browser, click the โ€œconnect walletโ€ button, but this time choose the Trustwallet option.

On the right-hand side, input the number of coins/tokens you want to spend on XCAD. After you are happy with the amount, you will be asked to swap the tokens. This will then bring up a confirmation screen, confirm this screen and then pay the gas fees in your wallet.

Once you confirm the transaction and pay the gas fee, your transaction will go through and you will have your XCADs!
