The $JCO utility token has been minted as an ERC20 token on the Polygon network and is available for purchase as of June 14, 2023 at 13:00 UTC on the MEXC exchange (CEX).
June 20, 2023 Update: $JCO is also now available for purchase on the Sushiswap decentralized exchange (DEX). Liquidity was moved from Uniswap to Sushiswap to facilitate a new liquidity generation program we will be undertaking in the coming days.
As a reminder, here is a video showing how the $JCO token will be utilized on the JennyCo healthcare data exchange through the app:
Below are step-by-step instructions for buying $JCO on MEXC and Sushiswap.
Buying $JCO on MEXC
$JCO will be available for trading on the MEXC exchange with a $JCO/$USDT trading pair. This means you’ll need to create an account and purchase $USDT to trade for $JCO tokens.
Step 1: Visit the MEXC.com website and sign up for a MEXC account by clicking “Sign up” in the upper right corner of the site. You’ll be prompted to enter your email and create a password.
Step 2: Purchase $USDT (Tether) with a credit card on the MEXC site or deposit $USDT into your account by transferring it from another wallet.
Step 3: Click “Spot” in the top menu area to enter the spot market, and search for “JCO” in the search bar. This will pull up the $JCO/$USDT pair, allowing you to buy $JCO with your $USDT.
Step 4: Once you have purchased your $JCO, you can withdraw it from your MEXC wallet to a wallet that supports the Polygon network such as Metamask or Stargazer. $JCO is also supported by the Ledger hardware wallet to store your tokens safely offline.
Important note: To see your $JCO tokens in your wallet, make sure to add $JCO as a custom token to your wallet using contract address: 0x8105f88e77a5d102099bf73db4469d3f1e3b0cd6
Please watch one of the helpful videos below for a detailed tutorial on using the MEXC exchange to buy, sell, deposit, or withdraw crypto.
Buying $JCO on Sushiswap
Since Sushiswap is a decentralized exchange, you will not need to create an account. Instead, you’ll connect your crypto wallet to Sushiswap since all crypto transactions occur directly between the exchange and your wallet.
Step 1: Use a wallet such as Metamask, which can be downloaded for free at https://www.Metamask.io.
For a basic Metamask tutorial, please check out this video:
Step 2: Since the $JCO token is an ERC20 token on the Polygon chain, you will need to select the Polygon chain from the chain dropdown menu in your wallet. Metamask is set to the Ethereum chain by default, so you will have to manually select Polygon.
Step 3: You will be able to use $USDT (on Polygon) and $MATIC, among others to swap to $JCO through Sushiswap. If not using $MATIC, you will also need a very small amount of $MATIC for gas fees to process the transaction.
Step 4: Visit Sushiswap at https://www.sushi.com/swap, switch to the Polygon network, and connect your Metamask wallet.
Step 5: The top box shows the crypto you are swapping from. This should default to the $MATIC balance in your wallet. Click “Select Token” in the bottom box to select the $JCO token.
In the search box, enter the $JCO contract number: 0x8105f88e77a5d102099bf73db4469d3f1e3b0cd6
You should see the $JCO token option appear. Click on the $JCO token and confirm your selection in the popup window.
Step 6: Enter the amount of $MATIC tokens you want to swap for $JCO tokens (keeping a little extra in your wallet to pay for gas fees), and click “Swap.”
Step 7: To see your $JCO tokens in your wallet, make sure to add $JCO as a custom token to your wallet using contract address: 0x8105f88e77a5d102099bf73db4469d3f1e3b0cd6
