Steps to list GMC as a asset in your MetaMask Wallet
Step 1: Go to your MetaMask Wallet by clicking on the MetaMask icon from the top right corner and log in using the password created while setting up your MeteMask account.
Step 2: MetaMask window will pop up on your screen.
Step 3: Click on “Ethereum Mainnet” and then on the “Add Network” button.
Step 4: A new window with Add a network options will appear. In that window add the following details.
Step 5: Click on Save and your Binance Smart Chain Network is added.
Step 6: Select the Binance Smart Smart Chain Network and click on “Assets” and then on “import tokens” from the bottom of the pop-up window or page.
Step 7: Click on “Import tokens” and then on “Custom token.”
Step 8: Fill the below details into the pop-up window.

Contract Address: 0xd3E7C41b39Bb252d909Fb64D2433Abf225Eaf49E
BSCScan Link: https://bscscan.com/address/0xd3E7C41b39Bb252d909Fb64D2433Abf225Eaf49E

Step 12: From the top center under Account 2, click “copy to clipboard” as this is your Metamask Account GMC Wallet Address and keep it handy for use in the coming steps.
Steps to deposit & add GMC funds into your MetaMask Wallet
Step 1: Login into your GokuMarket account
Step 2: Click on the Wallet icon from the top right corner and go to your Main Wallet with GMC balance.
Note: If you have GMC in any other wallet such as Trade Wallet, then first transfer them to your Main Wallet.
Step 3: Scroll down to the GMC balance in your Main wallet and click on “Withdraw.”
Step 4: In the right side window, click on the “Binance Smart Chain” checkbox.
Step 5: Enter the Metamask GMC Wallet Address you copied from the MetaMask Wallet (step 12 above) in the “Withdrawal Address” field.
Step 6: Enter the amount and click on the “Withdraw” button.
Note: for security reasons, you will also verify your withdrawal with both an email OTP and a Google 2FA code, which are normal steps to withdraw from GokuMarket.
Congratulations! Once processed on the blockchain, you have successfully withdrawn GMC from your GokuMarket Wallet to your MetaMask Wallet. You can use this GMC balance to create new proposals and become eligible to vote on the GokuMarket DAO proposals.
Important: It is highly recommended to also deposit some BNB to your Metamask wallet. The GokuMarket Credit (GMC) runs on the Binance Smart Chain as a BEP20 token, so anytime a user wants to withdraw or use their GMC in the GokuMarket DEX from their wallet, then the blockchain will also need to consume and use some gas fees in BNB. It is therefore also suggested to deposit some BNB to your Metamask Wallet.
How to use GMC in the Metamask wallet to Vote on a proposal
Step 1: Go to https://betadex.gokumarket.com/ and Connect your MetaMask Wallet in which you have added your GMC.
(Note: Ensure to select the right account with GMC balance if you have multiple accounts on your MetaMask).
Step 2: Click on the “DAO” from header and then click on “Voting”
Step 3: Select the proposal on which you want to vote from the list of available proposals.
Step 4: Select from the given proposal choices and click on “Cast Vote.”
Step 5: A Voting Power window will appear and each users’ voting power will depend on the amount of GMC they have in their Metamask wallet at the time (block) when the voting is started.
For example: a proposal is shared with the community on June 4th letting everyone know that there will be voting starting in a few days on June 10th. Now GokuMarketDAO members can deposit as many GMC into their Metamask wallets up until June 10th as possible. The amount of GMC they hold in their Metamask wallet at the exact block when the proposal is opened, will represent their voting power when they cast their vote. If a GokuMarketDAO member deposits more GMC after June 10th to the Metamask wallet, it does not have any additional voting power.
NOTE: You should have equal to or more than a minimum of 5 GMC required to vote in your MetaMask wallet at the block when the Proposal you want to vote on is opened.
Step 6: Next a window will pop-up. Click on the “Confirm Vote’’ button. It will verify your GMC at the block when this proposal was created.
Step 7: Click on “Sign” in the MetaMask Wallet pop-up.
Congratulations! You have successfully voted on the Proposal.
