How to trade on Coin98 Exchange

Step 1: Select the AMM you want to trade with by clicking on one of the two highlighted sections on the screen.
In this case, I will take PancakeSwap New as an example.
Step 2: Select the token you want to trade from the token search bar.
For new tokens that have not been listed on Coin98 Exchange, you can paste their Contract addresses and trade as usual.
I will take the USDT-C98 trading pair as an example.
Step 3: At the transaction area, you can:
  • Slide the bar or enter the desired amount of tokens you want to trade.
  • Adjust the Gwei bar according to the desired speed. The default gas fee on Coin98 Wallet has been set for the highest speed with the most reasonable cost.

  • The arrow in the middle of the trading interface is used to switch between the buying and selling positions. You need to check the tokens’ positions carefully before making any transactions.
  • The gas fee and the processing time are different on each blockchain. You need to double-check the information carefully before approving any transaction.
