If you are facing some problems with buying our token, go to our Telegram Support.
Ahh… the IMPACT token has launched!
We know how hard it is to be new to crypto, hence we create an Alpha Impact guide just for you.
What is Uniswap?
Uniswap is a leading decentralized crypto exchange that runs on the Ethereum blockchain. The majority of crypto trading takes place on centralized exchanges such as Coinbase and Binance. Unlike centralized platforms, Uniswap isn’t owned and operated by a single company, it uses a new type of trading model that doesn’t hold user funds and instead, exchanges tokens in a liquidity pool.
You can also watch the video below for a step-by-step visual guide.
Step 1: Visit Alpha Impact
First go to our website alphaimpact.fi and click on the Buy Token button (see circle).
It is important that you only use links on our website as there are fraud tokens with fake Telegram groups, websites and even fake tokens which replicated the first and last 4 characters of our address.
The Buy Token button will direct you Important Information page. Read all the information before pressing on our other links.
Once you have read all the information, click on the Dextools Trading Chart button.
Step 2: Enter the Dextool Trading Chart
Click on Trade circled in the image below.
You will be directed to the Uniswap trading platform and a notification to Import tokens will pop up.
Before pressing the Import button, go to Step 3 to ensure that all characters on this token matches our Etherscan contract address.
Step 3: Check the Etherscan contract address
On our Buy Token page, click on the Etherscan Token Contract button circled.
Ensure the entire contract address matches the one on Uniswap.
You can double-check the Etherscan token contract is verified with our official website and socials.
Before pressing the Import button on Uniswap, ensure that all characters on this token matches our Etherscan contract address. If both addresses match exactly, you can press on Import to import the token to Uniswap.
Step 3: Connect Wallet
Click on Connect to a wallet and choose Metamask.
The Metamask extension will pop-up to ask you to Connect MetaMask and Uniswap. Click on Next then Connect. Once connected, MetaMask will display your wallet address on the top right of the screen.
Step 4: Swap Tokens
Choose the amount you wish to purchase using ETH. Click on Swap then Confirm Swap.
The MetaMask extension will pop-up. It will display the amount of ETH you are trading and the Gas Price (GWEI), also known as the Ethereum blockchain’s transaction fee. Before clicking on Confirm, go to the Alpha Impact Buy Token page to check the maximum gas limit.
Step 5: Check Maximum GWEI
Please ensure that your Gas Price (GWEI) is set to below the maximum limit stated on our Buy Token page as we have anti-bot measures in place to protect buyers. Setting a Gas Price above the limit could result in the transactions having errors.
Wait for the notification that the transaction was confirmed. This can take a few minutes sometimes.
Once the transaction is confirmed, you should be able to see IMPACT in your wallet.
Congratulations on purchasing your IMPACT tokens.
