This is a step by step guide on how to buy Safemoon using TrustWallet app.
I put this guide together for people who are like me and never owned a cryptocurrency before, even thought the instructions on how to buy it on there website are straight forward it still new to me and wanted further explanation.
I also run to some issues while trying to buy Safemoon that required some research before , such as Insuffiecient BNB balance when trying to swap to safemoon from BNB in pancakesawp.
So here is a step by step how i bought my first crypto Safemoon:
1. Download & Install Trust Wallet
First Download Trust Wallet app From App Store or in Google Play if you have an android, you can also download an APK version from the Trust Wallet website (be carefull not to download the APK anywhere else).
one installed this will appear first tap on Create A New Wallet
this is step is very important , here you will get the KEY (passphrase) to your wallet and if you lose it you will not be able to access your wallet in the future.
- Write Down your passphrase and store it somewhere safe.
- don’t screenshot it
- don’t copy it into clipboard
- never share it with anyone even if they claim they are from support…
once agreed you will be sent to set your passphrase and confirm it , then your wallet is created.
2. Buy (Smart Chain) or BNB
Once your wallet is et up you will see the screen bellow, just click on buy to buy BNB.
A list of cryptocurrencies will appear , search and choose BNB .
PS: you can also preferably buy BSC (Smart chain) but when i tried it it said that it’s not available, if thats the case for you too you will have to swap from BNB to smart chain later in order to be able to get Safemoon.
Next enter the amount you want to purchase, and note that there are small fees on each transaction you do. but not too much.
Click next, in my case i got forwarded to Moonpay website where i entered my email and got a code to confirm my account then entered payment info and confirmed the order. and after a couple of minutes i received the BNB in my wallet.
3. Swap to BNB smartchain
This step was not listed on how to buy Safemoon official guide! You can try and skip this step to 4th step, but if you run to the issue of Pancakeswap telling you Insufficient BNB balance. you have to convert BNB to Smart chain.
below are the steps on how to do it:
- On the main screen of your wallet Tap on BNB
- Then Tap on three dots Labeled more
- A menu like the one below opens
- Tap on Swap to Smart Chain
Select the amount you want to convert to Smart Chain (you can just select from the percentage numbers above swap Button), then click on swap
Confirm the amount you want to swap and tap on send.
4. Get Safemoon in PancakeSwap
on the main menu below the screen of trust Wallet Tap on the DApps tab at the bottom, and find PancakeSwap
the screen below opens up , next to exchange tap on the icon like shown below:
exchange settings to set slippage to 12 %: (on the guide they said to set it between 11-12%) but 12% worked for me and 11% didn’t !
this notice appears, tick i agree and Continue:
then like shown on the screen below select the cryptocurrency you want to swap from (BNB) and to which one (Safemoon)
scroll down and tap on swap:
then confirm Swap
Congrats on owning your first Crypto i will not screenshot this part and will let you experience the joy of getting it in your wallet.
