Uniswap — Ethereuem based Liquidity Pool.

For Uniswap, the process has a lot more freedom. You’re able to select the exact tokens you want to swap. As you do, you’ll see the different amounts that you’ll receive, depending on the pair trade.

Step 1— Navigate to Uniswap

The first step is to navigate to Uniswap and connect your wallet. Make sure you connect the correct wallet.

Step 2 — Navigate to the PLA-ETH pairing

You can search for the PLA-ETH pairing using the search function on the main site or simply use the URL below.

Find the official V2 Uniswap pairing at:

It’s important to make sure you’re using the official pair. Remember you can always check these things via the Pair information section.

When you’re satisfied, navigate to the trade section for the pair.

Step 3 — Decide the swap pair.

When you’re in the trade area, you’ll see the swap pair load for PLA-ETH, to change to swap ETH (or any other token) for PLA click on the arrow in the middle to switch the trade direction.

To find the token you hold that you want to swap for PLA, click on the drop-down menu for the token you’ll be using as the base token.

You can either find the token by name or by token address. Again, make sure you’re using the true token.

When you've found the token you want to swap for PLA you’ll have to move to the next step, deciding the amount.

For this guide, we’ll be using ETH.

Step 4— Decide the swap amount.

Enter the amount of the base token you want to swap for PLA (in this case ETH). For the guide, we’re using a small amount, 0.000812 ETH.

Currently, PLA is swappable via V2 of Uniswap so you’ll need to click the ‘trade with V2’ button to allow the swap.

Once you have clicked the ‘trade with V2’ button the swap widget will automatically convert the base token (ETH) and show you the amount of PLA you will receive.

When you’re happy with the swap amount, click “swap” to be taken to the next step.

Step 5 — Confirm and execute the swap.

In the confirmation screen, you’ll be able to see the final details before you execute the swap. You can check things like the slippage tolerance and minimum amount you’ll receive.

When you’re happy with these details click ‘confirm swap’. Then confirm the transaction in your wallet. Remember this is the final step before transferring your tokens. Click “Confirm” and the transaction will be submitted.

You’ll get the ‘Transaction Submitted’ prompt, as well as the pending indication in the top right of the Uniswap interface.

You can close the ‘Transaction Submitted’ prompt and the transaction will still process. Once it has you’ll see your transaction on the recent Transactions area of the PLA-ETH pairing.
