This guide will walk you through the process of swapping USDC for ORBS on Uniswap.
We're using Metamask browser wallet, however WalletConnect, Coinbase Wallet, Fortmatic and Portis are also supported by Uniswap.
1. First, go to https://balancer.exchange/ and Connect to a wallet.
2. To select ORBS you would need to paste the official address of ORBS smart contract into token selection field. Smart contract address is available on official ORBS pages on CoinMarketCap and CoinGecko.
3. Pressing "Unlock" will prompt a a request to withdraw USDC in MetaMask. This step is required the first time you try swapping tokens on Balancer.
Once this transaction is complete, you'll see a notification.
4. Now, you can press "Swap" to initiate the exchange. Transaction will be handed to MetaMask for execution, where you'd have to confirm transaction fees and exchange.
That's it! ORBS tokens will be deposited onto your wallet address once the transaction is completed.
