MetisSwap Testnet User Guide
Welcome to the Testnet edition of MetisSwap!
A Layer 2 Decentralized Exchange application building on Metis Layer 2 Beta Testnet.
You will be able to:
Anyone. Whether you’re DeFi-savvy or a total newbie, give MetisSwap a try to experience the blazing speed and low gas fees of Metis Layer 2.
Log in at testswap.metis.io
Click the drop down button and choose “MetisLayer2Test”
MetaMask will pop up with a notice of the configuration of MetisLayer2Test. Click “Approve” to switch your network to MetisLayer2Test network.
All right! Now you have accessed Metis Layer 2 Beta Testnet.
USER GUIDE STEP 4: GET METIS TEST TOKENS FOR PAYING GAS FEES
Transactions on Metis Layer 2 will cost Metis tokens as the gas fee. In this test phase, you will thus have to get some Metis test tokens on Metis Layer 2 Beta Testnet first.
Click “Faucet” and on the page you will see “Give me Metis”. Click on that button and you will get 1 Metis test token per day for paying gas fees…even though 1 Metis test token can be used by itself for many days, covering up to thousands of transactions on Metis Layer 2.
USER GUIDE STEP 5: CREATE YOUR OWN TOKEN ON METIS LAYER 2 TESTNET
In order to better use the Swap functions, you can create your own token on Metis Layer 2 Beta Testnet, add it into the liquidity pool, and swap it with others.
Click “Create Token”, input the Token Name, Symbol, and the amount of Supply (you can drag the bar to adjust the amount). Then click “create” to mint your very first Layer 2 token on Metis Beta Testnet.
After clicking “Confirm” in MetaMask, your Layer 2 token will be created.
USER GUIDE STEP 6: ADD YOUR TOKEN ADDRESS TO METAMASK
After the creation of your token, on the Congratulations popup page, click “Add to MetaMask” to add your token. You will then be able to view your token in the Assets section of your MetaMask wallet.
You have now added your own token in MetaMask, but not yet to the official MetisSwap token list. In order to do that, follow the instructions on the page, send the Tweet, post your screenshot in our Telegram group, and tell our Telegram admin that you hope to add the token into the official list so that other people can also swap your token.
USER GUIDE STEP 7: ADD YOUR TOKEN INTO THE LIQUIDITY POOL
Click “Pool”, and then “Create a pair”.
Choose the token pair (e.g. W6/Metis) for which you want to add liquidity. Input the number, then approve the transaction.
Confirm the transaction in MetaMask.
After the confirmation, click “Supply” to add the token pair into the liquidity pool.
Confirm to create your pool and supply.
Your pool has been created!
If you can’t find your pool, use the “Import” function to add it.
USER GUIDE STEP 8: SWAP YOUR TEST TOKEN WITH OTHER TOKENS
Click “Swap”, choose the token you want to trade, then start trading and experience the low gas fees and high transaction speed of Metis Layer 2.
The rich text element allows you to create and format headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, images, and video all in one place instead of having to add and format them individually. Just double-click and easily create content.
A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content. For static content, just drop it into any page and begin editing. For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and then connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila!
Headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, figures, images, and figure captions can all be styled after a class is added to the rich text element using the "When inside of" nested selector system.
