DeFi on SmartBCH

Jump to navigation Jump to search


  • Bitcoin Cash (you can buy BCH on Coinbase)
  • MetaMask for Firefox, Chrome, Android, ...

Step 1[edit]

Start MetaMask & write down your seed words, set a password

Configure MetaMask for SmartBCH:

Step 2[edit]

  • Swap Bitcoin Cash for SmartBCH using a bridge, like
  • Type in the amount
  • Paste the 0x address (from SmartBCH!) in the field
  • Click "Exchange BCH"
  • Pay the amount and wait for confirmation on the blockchain (~10 minutes)
  • You should see the amount minus the bridge fee in your MetaMask wallet

Hop.cashis another bridge widely used which requires you connect to your Metamask wallet.

Step 3[edit]

  • Connect MetaMask to a DEX
  • Convert ~49% of your Bitcoin Cash in MetaMask to a token of your choice (for example: CashCats) - you can do that on BenSwap or a DEX of your choice - use SmartSwap to get the best exchange rate

Step 4[edit]

  • For some trading pairs you need WBCH or wrapped BCH, you can swap BCH for WBCH in the trade menu
  • Select BCH and your token and add Liquidity on your favorite DEX - this menu should be under "Trade -> Liquidity" or "Pool" depending on the DEX you're using BenSwap, MistSwap
  • Now you will receive LP (Liquidity Provider) tokens. LP tokens represent your share of liquidity (if you're staking 1 BCH and 200000 CATS you may get 0.7 BCH and 300000 CATS back when you're unstaking them after a week!)

Step 5[edit]

  • Go to "Farms" or "Farm" and stake your LP tokens
  • From now on you can harvest money - you can swap half of your harvested tokens for BCH or WBCH and add that in a farm again


  • The APR % goes down significantly if you add a lot of liquidity to a small farm. Use a large farm if you're planning to add a lot of liquidity.
  • Do some research about the token(s) you're about to buy
  • Some DEXes are audited, but not all of them - an audit is a good sign
  • Be careful and don't get scammed
