How To Use Sundaeswap? Cardano DEFI Guide 

how to use sundaeswap

SundaeSwap is a decentralised, autonomous protocol for trading Cardano projects and tokens, on the Cardano blockchain. The application is (at the time of writing) in public beta on the Cardano mainnet. As a result, the functionality is a little bit behind other DEXs such SpookySwap (Fantom network) and Trader Joe (Avalanche). SundaeSwap, however, does still allow users to swap tokens, provide liquidity, and farm to earn yield. Like all other DEX’s you will need to make sure you have some Cardano in a wallet to pay for gas fees. Let’s jump in and learn how to use SundaeSwap!

Getting Started on SundaeSwap

To get started with SundaeSwap, go here and connect a Cardano wallet. You have two choices, either Nami or ccvault. For the purposes of this guide, we are going to use the Nami wallet. If you have not already, then first install your preferred wallet.

  1. Select your wallet. If using Nami Wallet, then you will need to use either Google Chrome, Microsoft Edge, or Brave when using SundaeSwap.

  1. To check your swap has gone through you can click on the ‘View Orders’ button, or by navigating to the menu on the left – and clicking ‘Orders’. Once completed, the transaction will appear in the ‘On-Chain Orders History’ section.

That’s it, simple as that!

Liquidity Pools

A liquidity pool (LP) is a pool of two tokens, e.g. $ADA and $SUNDAE tokens. Users can earn a share of the trading fees within the pool by depositing a pair of tokens into the LP (also known as “adding liquidity”). You will receive an LP token, representing your share of the LP. This is a super simple process!

You have a couple of options to move forward here. 

1. You can click on the “Provide Liquidity” button on the homepage (highlighted) below. OR We would recommend scrolling through the list of liquidity pools, pressing the ‘More’ button for the one that interests you the most. This displays information about the pool. Then click the ‘Provide Liquidity’ button.

3. Click the “Order Deposit” button initiate the request to provide liquidity.

Your LP tokens will now be available in your wallet, ready to go yield farming.

Yield Farming

In return for depositing tokens to a Liquidity Pool, you will receive a “LP” token. You can stake these tokens in one of the Yield Farms on SundaeSwap – earning extra yield in the form of $SUNDAE Tokens.

  1. Click on ‘Liquidity’ in the navigation menu
