The stZEN testnet is an emulation for users to familiarise with the process of acquiring stZEN and providing liquidity to the pool without using real cryptocurrencies. Please note that while the steps will be the same when stZEN is live on the mainnet, the Contract Address and Link to SushiSwap 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 stZEN™ Today’.
2. Switch your Metamask network from ‘Ethereum Mainnet’ to ‘Ropsten Test Network’ through the browser extension.
3. Request for any amount of 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 SushiSwap for the stZEN testnet again: https://exchange.sushi.com/#/swap?inputCurrency=ETH&outputCurrency=0x82Fa336D432902D79720D7e3147D848b0fb94255. Connect your MetaMask wallet to SushiSwap (top right in the navigation bar). Afterwards, 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 stZEN. The minimum stZEN to hold to earn staking rewards is 1 stZEN. As the liquidity pool is limited on the testnet at the point of writing this guide, there might be a warning message. You may ignore it and select ‘Swap Anyway’, twice. On the mainnet (while this would not happen), however, do take note of the price impact and other details of the transaction. If there is no warning message, you just need to click on ‘Confirm Swap’ to proceed.
7. Once you have keyed in the ETH you would like to swap stZEN with, hit ‘Confirm Swap’ on the SushiSwap 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 stZEN (testnet) tokens to your Metamask wallet. You may click on ‘Add stZEN to Metamask’ or you can select ‘Add Token’ directly from the Metamask extension (on the right).
9. If you have selected ‘Add Token’, you will now copy and paste the token contract address [0x82Fa336D432902D79720D7e3147D848b0fb94255] 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 stZEN you have swapped for.
With the stZEN in your Metamask wallet, you may proceed to request for more ETH from the faucet and swap for more stZEN just to familiarise yourself with the process. Once stZEN is listed on SushiSwap (on the mainnet), the steps will be similar except for the token address and link to SushiSwap pair/liquidity pool.
Please note that the 1. Contract address and 2. Link to liquidity pool/pair will be different from the one in Testnet.
