How to Purchase Wrapped Filecoin ($WFIL) on SushiSwap

This is a step-by-step guide on how to purchase Wrapped Filecoin, an ERC20 token representing a 1:1 share of Filecoin (WFIL) on Ethereum. We will demonstrate how to buy WFIL on SushiSwap.

Before you begin please ensure the following:

  • You have a browser with Metamask installed (Chrome and Brave work well for this purpose).

You can begin by going to and clicking the SushiSwap option next to WFIL - WETH. From there, you will be redirected to SushiSwap’s analytics page.

Then, click the Trade option in the upper right-hand corner to begin the purchase process.

You’ll need to click the Connect to a wallet button in the upper right-hand corner and then your MetaMask app will allow you to authorize which network you’d like to use.

Select Polygon (Matic) as the network that you will be using.

To find WFIL or any of’s wrapped tokens you’ll need to adjust the token you are swapping to what’s shown below. Click the Select a Token button and add in the following token name: wFIL. Then, select the Wrapped Filecoin option listed.

Enter the amount of your selected cryptocurrency you’d like to spend or alternatively the amount of WFIL you’d like to buy and then approve that cryptocurrency for your trade if prompted. After confirming with MetaMask you will then be able to enable the Swap and confirm with MetaMask once more.

Once you submit your transaction to Polygon (Matic) you will need to wait. Depending on your gas fee price and the congestion of the network — you will see a Pending indicator during this time. Once your transaction is complete you can view exactly how much was purchased.

And now you have bought your first WFIL! 🔥🔥🔥
