The Set Social Trading platform on TokenSets is an easy way to leverage experienced traders to automate informed crypto trading decisions. Getting started is simple— all you need is a Web3 account (MetaMask, Coinbase Wallet, etc.) and some ETH to start buying Social Trader Sets.

In order to buy Sets, you’ll need a Web3-enabled account along with some ETH, WBTC, DAI or USDC. You can check out this article on how to get your TokenSets account up and running.

Browsing Social Trading Sets

On the TokenSets Explore page, you can view all of the available Sets. The Sets under the ‘Social Trading Sets’ category use signals from traders to initiate their trades (rebalances). Once you find a Set that you like, simply click one of them to view the Set’s landing page.

Set Details

On each Set’s landing page you can see a more in-depth view of the Set’s information that can help you make an informed decision about which Set is the most appealing to you. Important information that might help inform your buy/sell decision for a Set:

The About section of the ETHMOONX Set

Buying Sets

When you have enough information to make an informed buy decision, you can click on the Buy button at the top of the Set’s landing page. You’ll see a window displayed where you can input how many Sets you’d like to buy.

You can use ETH, WBTC, DAI or USDC to purchase a Set. If the Set is currently positioned in 100% USDC and you decide to pay using ETH, our smart contracts will automatically exchange your ETH for USDC using Kyber Network and 0x. Once the exchange is complete, your funds will be deposited into the Set Protocol Vault smart contract and then your Sets will be issued to your wallet as ERC20 tokens.

The Buy window

Once you’ve decided on how many Sets you’d like to buy, you can click Preview Buy to bring up the next window.

The Preview window

If everything look goods, you can click Submit and confirm your transaction on your Web3 wallet.

The Confirm window and MetaMask prompt

The window will show a pending state once you’ve initialized the transaction.

Pending order state

Your transaction should succeed and show a success state if everything goes to plan.

Enjoy your new Sets!

After that, your Set will be viewable in your account page on TokenSets. Congrats, you’ve just bought your first Set!
