Bridge $MAPO from UniSwap to Map Protocol
Welcome to this guide, where we will explore the process of obtaining and bridging $MAPO.
Our journey will begin with the acquisition of Ethereum Tokens ($ETH) through purchase on Kucoin.com (Skip this step if you have existing $ETH)
Next, we will utilize UniSwap to exchange $ETH for ERC20 $MAPO on the Ethereum Protocol.
Finally, we will bridge the ERC20 $MAPO from the Ethereum Protocol to the Map Protocol, enabling its seamless integration into the Map Protocol ecosystem.
Crypo Wallet Required
In this guide we will be using the Metamask.io wallet to connect to chains outside of Kucoin.com. Head over to Metamask.io if you need a wallet.
Any wallet can be used but you will require an ETH based 0x address to send the $MAPO to.
If you have not already done so, add the Map Protocol to your wallet using the details below.
|Field||Value to enter|
|Network name||MAP Mainnet|
|New RPC URL||https://rpc.maplabs.io|
|Block explorer URL||https://maposcan.io|
Buy $ETH on Kucoin.com
If you require some $ETH , head over to Kucoin.com.
To begin, please ensure that you have an account set up on Kucoin.com
Kucoin.com offers two convenient options for acquiring crypto — direct purchase or spot trading.
For a swift solution, simply select the currency of your choice and complete the trade via the “Buy Crypto” option.
Choose your payment type
Choose your amount and buy some tokens
Alternatively, experienced traders may opt for spot trading to execute trades at their discretion.
Go grab a deal!
Once you have some $ETH on Kucoin.com, transfer it out to your external wallet using the ‘Withdraw’ functionality in your Kucoin wallet.
Withdraw $ETH to Wallet
Swap $ETH for Wrapped $MAPO
We are now ready to embark on the journey of swapping our $ETH for Map Protocol ($MAPO) using uniswap.org.
Navigate to uniswap.org and ensure you are connected to the Ethereum Network.
Click the “Swap” button in the menu
In the “From” field, select $ETH and in the “To” field, select $MAPO.
You can locate and select the $MAPO token by using the $MAPO Ethereum Protocol Address.
$MAPO Ethereum Address: 0x9E976F211daea0D652912AB99b0Dc21a7fD728e4
Select MAPO token using the address
Is everything correct?
Once the necessary information has been provided, initiate the swap. You can track the progress of the transaction on EtherScan and add the $MAPO token to your wallet.
Upon completion, $MAPO tokens will be visible in your wallet.
Congratulations! You are now a proud owner of $MAPO.
Bridging the $MAPO to Map Protocol
Navigate to the bridge — https://bridge.mapprotocol.io
This provides the user interface for bridging $MAPO from the Ethereum Protocol (and others) to Map Protocol. This will bring up the interface where you can enter the required information for the bridge.
You should be already connected to Ethereum Protocol as indicated in the top right corner of the website.
Green light, ready to go.
If not, click the ‘Connect’ button in the same location.
Let me in!
- Ensure ‘From’ is Ethereum Protocol.
- The amount of $MAPO to send.
- Token to send — $MAPO.
- Network to send to — MAPO Mainnet.
- Enter the address where you wish to receive the token or leave as the default: sending address.
Send a gift of MAPO to friends
Before proceeding with the transfer, review the transaction details to ensure that everything is correct. If everything looks good, initiate the transfer by clicking the “Transfer” button (6).
You will be asked to confirm the transaction in your wallet.
The transfer will take some time to complete as it requires several confirmations on the Ethereum Protocol and the Map Protocol. During this time, you can monitor the status of the bridge by going to the ‘History’ tab and tracking the status of the transaction.
Click on the ‘Pending’ button to open up the ‘Transaction Detail’. Here you can view the amounts sending and receiving, any $MAPO fees and the status of each transaction in their corresponding chains.
You can see further detail by clicking the links to the explorer of both Map Protocol and the Ethereum Protocol.
Once all transactions are confirmed, we can now switch chains to Map Protocol and you will be able to access and utilize your $MAPO within the Map Protocol ecosystem.
We can check by switching the ‘From’ chain to $MAPO.
You will be prompted to change to the Map Protocol .
Let’s take a look on the other side…
Checking out the MAP!
We can see the 1000 $MAPO tokens in our wallet.
Now you have $MAPO tokens on the Map Protocol you can engage with:
Swap sites such as https://swap.hiveswap.io/
Stake your $MAPO with a validator to earn rewards by first ‘Locking’ and then ‘Voting’ with a validator at https://staking.mapprotocol.io
