The stDASH testnet is an emulation for users to familiarise with the process of acquiring stDASH and providing liquidity to the pool without using real cryptocurrencies. Please note that while the steps will be the same when stDASH is live on the mainnet, the Contract Address and Link to Uniswap Pair will be different from this guide.
For this guide, you would have already created a Metamask wallet and added that in the browser. You do not need to store any ETH for the testnet to work. You may follow the steps below for clarity.
- Head to StakeHound.com and click on ‘Try stDASH™ Today’.
2. Switch your Metamask network from ‘Ethereum Mainnet’ to ‘Ropsten Test Network’ through the browser extension.
3. Request for 1 ETH from faucets [https://faucet.dimensions.network/ or https://faucet.metamask.io/]. Input your wallet address. You can find your wallet address in the Metamask extension. Click on it and click on the Account name to copy your wallet address to clipboard. Paste it in the field and click on ‘Send Ropsten ETH’.
4. Once you are done, it will reflect a transaction hash. Click on it to be taken to Etherscan which will reflect the status of the rETH transaction. Please note that you might have to wait up to 2 minutes for the transaction to be successful. Check your wallet in the Metamask extension. You should see the number of ETH now available in your wallet.
5. Head to Uniswap for the stDASH testnet again: https://app.uniswap.org/#/swap?inputCurrency=ETH&outputCurrency=0x7E7A46FECeDAC72Eca55f762eD557c3756432489. Check ‘I understand’ in the warning message and click ‘Import’.
6. Now, you can use the ETH you have received from the faucet to swap for stDASH. The minimum sTDASH to hold to earn staking rewards is 1 stDASH.
7. Once you have keyed in the ETH you would like to swap the stDASH with, hit ‘Confirm Swap’ on the Uniswap interface. You will now see a popup from the Metamask extension, requesting you to confirm the transaction before proceeding. Click ‘confirm’.
8. Transaction is pending. You should now add stDASH (testnet) to your Metamask wallet. You may click on ‘Add stakedDASH to Metamask’ or you can select ‘Add Token’ directly from the Metamask extension.
9. If you have selected on ‘Add Token’, you will now input the token contract address [0x7E7A46FECeDAC72Eca55f762eD557c3756432489] in the first field. The next two fields will populate automatically. Hit ‘Next’.
10. You will now see that the Metamask wallet holds the number of stDASH you have swapped for.
With the stakedDASH in your Metamask wallet, you may proceed to request for more ETH from the faucet and swap for more stakedDASH just to familiarise yourself with the process. Once stDASH is listed on Uniswap (on the mainnet), the steps will be similar.
Please note that the 1. Contract address and 2. Link to Uniswap pair will be different from the one in Testnet.
