Here is a helpful video walking through how to set up your metamask wallet, import $C12 Tokens, setting up Coinbase & Crypto.com accounts to purchase ETH, and to purchase more $C12 tokens:
1. Setup Your MetaMask Wallet
Metamask is a popular digital wallet that stores and uses different types of cryptocurrencies. It's also used for interacting with decentralized applications (dApps) on the Ethereum network. Metamask is available as a browser extension for Chrome, Firefox, Opera, and Brave, and also as a mobile app for your electronic device.
A Metamask wallet is essential for handling cryptocurrencies like Carbon12 ($C12) and other Web3 applications.
If you don't already have a Metamask wallet, you'll be prompted to create one. Luckily, there are just a few easy steps to take to get started.
It'll send an automated email to your email account and you're gonna open that up, click the prompt, and then you're gonna need to set up your phone number.
It'll send a verification code to confirm your phone number.
Then you will need to verify your identity with your legal name, ID, and by taking a selfie.
Sometimes it can take up to 24 hours to get the account verified.
After your account is verified you can connect your bank account/payment method and then purchase ETH and add it to your Crypto.com wallet.
Then you will need to send it to your MetaMask wallet by copying your MetaMask address and typing it into your Crypto.Com Ethereum wallet and confirming the sending process over to your MetaMask account.
For Coinbase, you can set up the account with your email address.
You'll need to click on add a payment method after getting your account set up and connect your bank account using Plaid to do that.
You type in your bank account and then it will ask you to sign in to your bank account.
Then you can click on the buy button and type in ETH in the search bar to purchase ETH.
After you have your ETH in you're wallet you can then purchase and send it to your MetaMask wallet by copying your MetaMask address and typing it into your Coinbase Ethereum wallet and confirming the sending process over to your MetaMask account.
Purchasing $C12 Tokens
After you have ETH added into your MetaMask wallet, you're going to click on the hamburger menu in the upper left hand corner of your MetaMask wallet and click on browser.
You're going to type in Carbon12.co and navigate to the site using that browser and click on any of the buy $C12 buttons.
It will open up Uniswap and auto default to the C12 token swapping from ETH to C12.
It will also automatically pull your ETH balance that you have in your wallet.
You can then choose how much ETH you want to swap for C12 tokens.
For the transaction to go through, you may need to adjust for slippage by clicking on the gear icon on Uniswap, adding in 7-10% in the liquidity field and then clicking on the Expert Mode toggle switch, hit confirm and then type in "confirm" to confirm.
You can then click on swap, and then confirm the transaction.
If your purchase does not go through, you'll need to adjust slippage settings in Uniswap.
Here's how to adjust slippage settings in Uniswap:
Open up Uniswap to purchase
Click the gear icon
Change the liquidity % to 10%
Click on Expert Mode, and confirm the prompts
Then add in your amount of ETH you want to swap for $C12
Click on Swap to confirm
Confirm the transaction in Metamask wallet
You can now see the transaction in Activity and click on Assets to view the $C12 in your wallet.
5. Staking $C12
You can also stake your $C12 tokens and be rewarded with a 21% APY to lockup your tokens for a period of time.
It's a great incentive and you can get rewarded just for continuing to hold the $C12 tokens in your wallet when they're staked.
