An easy guide for trading $SCLP on Pancakeswap.

Scallop is listed on PancakeSwap, and we know that using a decentralized exchange (DEX) can be a little frustrating if you’ve never done it before, so I’ve prepared this handy guide to help you get started and enjoy the dip.

But first, an overview:

⛓ Chain: BSC

📖 Pair: SCLP/BNB

📖 Contract: 0xF2c96E402c9199682d5dED26D3771c6B192c01af

Always double check the contract address!

Step 0: Get some funds

This is probably the most obvious step, but again one that new users might need help with. Decentralized exchanges require funds in a wallet like MetaMask or Trustwallet, and in this case you need BNB to swap for SCLP. The wallet you use is ultimately up to you.

Scallop tokens are on Binance Smart Chain (BSC), you’ll also need some tokens to pay fees — in this case, BNB. You won’t need hundreds of dollars to perform transactions, but it’s essential that you have enough to cover the costs.

Once you’ve got some BNB in your wallet and you’re connected to Binance Smart Chain, head over to PancakeSwap.

Step 1: Find the pair

Head to pancakeswap.finance and navigate to the ‘Exchange’ section.

This is where the swapping happens. You’ll have to manually add the Scallop pair using the contract address. (I can’t say this enough: always double check it!)

📖 Contract: 0xF2c96E402c9199682d5dED26D3771c6B192c01af

Click on one of the two assets and search for ‘BNB’. It should appear in the list.

On the second asset, paste the Scallop contract address into the search box. It’ll prompt you to import the token.

It’ll prompt you to confirm the token import.

You’ll now see the pair, ready for trading!

Step 2: Swap

There are a few steps involved with swapping, but after you’ve done it once or twice the process becomes very straightforward.

First, enable the tokens from your wallet, pancakeswap will prompt you do to this.

Follow the prompts in your wallet. You may need to pay a small amount of gas for this transaction. Once the tokens are approved, now you’re ready to swap, so press ‘Swap’. Double check the details and hit Confirm Swap.

Again, approve the transaction through your wallet. This will again cost a small amount of gas. When you’re done! Wait for the transaction confirmation…

And you’re now a proud holder of $SCLP 🔥

Step 3: Add the token to your wallet

You’ll need to manually add the SCLP token to your wallet . This is a common source of panic, until you add the token to your wallet you won’t be able to see it! Don’t be worried though: the tokens are there, we just need to make them appear.

These instructions are for MetaMask — for other wallets you can easily search for how to add tokens manually.

First, select the option to ‘Import Tokens’.

Click on the Custom Token tab and add in the Scallop contract address.

Everything should fill automatically — just hit ‘Add Custom Token’ and you’re done!

Any problems?

If you’re trying to swap and you’re getting an error like ‘Insufficient liquidity for this trade’, you may be on the wrong pair. Double check that you’re swapping BNB with SCLP and as always, double check the SCLP address.
