[Part 3 of 4] The 0Chain Geyser Guide: How to Provide Liquidity on Uniswap

Welcome to Part 3 of the 0Chain Geyser Guide.

Daily fees are paid out based on a fraction of total volume.
  • A computer (I’ll be using a Mac)
  • An internet connection
  • 1 of 4 web browsers (Google Chrome, Brave, Firefox, or Edge). For this guide we will be using Google Chrome, since it’s the most popular web browser.
  • ETH in your Metamask wallet
  • ZCN in your Metamask wallet

Step One: Open Uniswap

  1. Go to the Uniswap website (uniswap.org); click the “Launch App” button in the top right.
Go to the Uniswap website (uniswap.org); click the “Launch App” button in the top right.
Click “Pool”.
Click “Add Liquidity”. This will allow us to select the pool we want to become an LP in.
Leave “ETH” as is, and Click “Select a Token” so that we can link ZCN into the ETH/ZCN pool.
Select ZCN from the token list. This will coordinate us with the ETH/ZCN pool, which is the only pool the 0Chain Geyser is running on.

Step Two: Add Liquidity

  1. Input the amount you want to stake as an LP; click “Approve ZCN”. As explained earlier, the input amounts of ETH and ZCN must be equal in USD value. As you input an amount into ETH or ZCN, Uniswap will automatically calculate the amount for the other.
Input the amount you want to stake as an LP; click “Approve ZCN”.
Click “Confirm” on Metamask. This will initiate your approval step.
Wait for approval transaction to process :)
Once approval goes through you’ll be prompted to Supply Liquidity, click “Supply”; then “Confirm Supply”. After confirming Supply you will be directed to the Metamask wallet.
Confirm the transaction by clicking “Confirm”. This will submit the transaction to the blockchain to complete your process of becoming an LP.

Step Three: Verify That You’ve Received an LP Token

  1. Click the three dots on Metamask in the top right; Click “View on Etherscan”. This is a “double check” step so that you can see proof of your LP token on the blockchain. Once you click the link, you’ll be directed to the Ethereum block explorer where you can see proof on the blockchain of your LP token.
Click the “Token” dropdown and locate the “Uniswap V2 (UNI-V2)” token balance. This is your LP token, which is essentially your “ticket” into the 0Chain Geyser.

You’ve Reached The End (of Part 3)!

Now, onto Part Four of the 0Chain Geyser Tutorial — How to Provide Liquidity on Uniswap!
