You're using the Swap widget when you wish to swap tokens by using Emeris.

The swap widget is one of the main features you can access from the main page and from each asset page.

When initiating a swap you can choose to:

  1. Swap a token for another token on the same blockchain.
    As an example, you can swap ATOM for OSMO on the Cosmos Hub.

  2. Swap a token for another token on two different blockchains.
    This is a cross-chain transaction, possible thanks to the IBC protocol (Extended information here).

    1. What do you need to know?

      1. It is a two-step transaction, thus you’ll sign the transaction twice.
        Watch out: double fee applies.

        1. First, an interchain transaction will automatically be performed to bring the tokens into the Hub and add the tokens to the pool.

        2. Second, tokens are swapped within the same blockchain

      2. The swap widget will show you the path to follow, and the transaction will be performed without requiring anything else on your end.

As an example, you can swap OSMO from the Osmosis hub to ATOM on the Cosmos Hub in a few clicks.

How does the swap widget work?

From the main page of the Emeris dashboard, spot the swap widget on the right side of the screen:

  1. Select the token you want to pay with

    1. If you have tokens on different blockchains, you'll need to choose which chain you want to use for the swap.

  2. Select the token you wish to swap to

  3. Enter the amount you want to exchange or select Max

    1. Watch out: When choosing Max you’re swapping all your balance

  4. If you want to adjust your slippage, click on the three dots top right of the Swap card. (What’s slippage? Read more here)

  5. Click Review & review your transaction details

  6. Select Confirm and Continue

  1. Sign your transaction on the Keplr pop-up

  2. From here you can either:

    1. Wait for the swap to complete

    2. Initiate another swap while the initial swap completes in the background.

      1. You can only sign one transaction at a time, however, you can queue as many tx as you want!
