Nitro Swap

AMM DEX on Nitro

Want to learn more about Nitro SVM? Stick with me.  

Nitro SVM is a Solana virtual machine protocol acting as an optimistic rollup on the Sei blockchain. Sei is a sector-specific layer 1 for decentralized exchanges (DEX). 

Now, Nitro SVM has just launched its automated market maker (AMM) DeX on the Nitro testnet.  It is called Nitro swap. With NitroSwap, users can become familiar with the Nitro testnet as it has been designed to imitate the real transaction process. 

There will be two launches for NitroSwap - a closed launch and a public launch. 

For the closed launch, Nitro badge holders get to use NitroSwap first.

The closed launch starts on the 24th of February.

The public launch will be available to the general public starting March 3rd, 2023. 

Now, here's a step-by-step guide to interacting with the app. 

1. Visit the app 

2. You'll need to connect a Solana wallet, holding your Nitro badge. Currently, NitroSwap only supports Solflare, so you'd have to import your wallet address into Solflare. 

Let me walk you through how to import a wallet address on Solflare.

  1. Download Solflare on your device, either as an app or browser extension. But know that you can only import a wallet address on mobile (not an extension). So, preferably you download the mobile wallet. 

  2. If your badge was on Phantom, you must import that wallet into Solflare. 

  • First, go to settings.

  • Find your way to security and privacy.

  • Select export private key—not mnemonic phrases. Ensure to copy your keys.

  • After that, go to your Solflare wallet settings page. Tap on the main account.

  • Then, select edit. At the top left corner, you'd see a + icon. Tap on it.

  • Choose the import private key.

  • Paste your private key from Phantom, and you can now see your collectibles. 

Now, back to NitroSwap Page

  • Click on connect wallet and sign the transaction.

  • After that, you can start collecting Faucet SVM and ZOOM tokens from the faucet 🚰.

  • At the far bottom, you'd see the "request funds" button. Click on it, and 5 SVM and 5 ZOOM tokens will be added to your account.

You can request tokens every 15 minutes. Once the tokens have been received, you'll get this pop-up. 

For now, that's all.
