How to Connect Your Wallet to Dexvers Using WalletConnect?
WalletConnect is an open-source protocol connecting your crypto wallet with a dApp (decentralized application) of choice. Simply put, this is not an app. It’s a protocol that acts as a bridge between wallets and dApps, making it easier for users to connect them and trade safely.
Not only is WalletConnect automating the process of connection, but the protocol has secure encryption that has payloads symmetrically encrypted through a shared key between two peers. There’s even more to this protocol than meets the eye. Here are some of the additional pros of WalletConnect:
Connection via QR code or deep links
Push server allowing user notification of incoming payloads
Hundreds of wallets and dApps supported
Another advantage to WalletConnect is the ease of connection to any wallet or dApp of your choice. To explain how it all works, we’ve used Trust as our crypto wallet. If you aren’t familiar with setting this wallet up, we’ll get into that first.
Setting up Your Trust Wallet
Setting up your Trust wallet is very simple. Here are the steps:
Trust Wallet is available for download on both desktop and mobile. Choose your platform and download the app from the Apple/Play Store or Trust’s website.
Follow the installation process and, upon finishing, open the app.
The app will prompt you to enter a new numerical passcode of choice and to confirm it.
Next, you’ll get a Secret Phrase you need to write down and remember because you’ll be asked to verify it right after.
After you go through the process of verifying your Secret Phrase, you’ve successfully created your Trust wallet.
Connecting Your Wallet to Dexvers
Now that you’re all set up with your Trust wallet, it’s time to connect it to dexvers. This process is even simpler than wallet creation, so follow these steps:
Go to the dexvers app, and click on the “Connect Wallet” button in the upper right corner.
You’ll get a pop-up asking you to choose which wallet you want to connect, so pick “Wallet Connect.”
Now, you’ll get to either scan a QR code or pick your preferred wallet. Scanning the QR code is easier, so we’ll go with that.
In your Trust Wallet app, go to Settings.
This will open a new window where you’ll choose “Wallet Connect.”
The final window will give you the option to add a “New Connection.” Clicking this will open your camera so you can scan the QR code from the dexvers app.
Once you scan the QR code, it may take a few moments for you to connect, so give it some time.
Lastly, you’ll get a prompt asking you for the final approval in the connection process.
And that’s it! Your wallet is now connected to dexvers, and you’re free to trade DXVS tokens, along with your other assets. Or, you know, hold onto it until the end of time – the choice is all yours!
Manually Add DXVS Tokens
Your Trust wallet may not be displaying your DXVS tokens yet, but that doesn’t mean they’re gone. DXVS tokens are still brand new, so some wallets might need you to add them manually. Guess what, though? This process is as simple as the previous ones! Here’s what you need to do:
Go back to the “homepage” in your Trust Wallet app and choose the filter sign in the upper right corner, as shown in the screenshot below.
2. As always, you’ll get a brand new window with all kinds of coins that can be added and put on display. But, disregard those and click on the + sign in the upper right corner because this will let you Add a Custom Coin.
3. Another new window will ask you for the necessary information regarding the token you want to add. Take a look at what that should look like in the screenshot below.
And this is the information you’ll need:
Contact Address (Dexvers Smart Contract): 0x98fae8bae2547e4d9074b40e144132577092a0f5
And that’s it! Keep in mind that WalletConnect supports a variety of wallets, and we’ve only used Trust as an example. The connection process for other wallets shouldn’t look much different than what you’ve seen here.
Now that you’re all connected – let the trades begin! But don’t forget to keep some spare change on hand because even the DXVS rocket needs gas to run.
