How To Buy
Trust Wallet is one of the easiest mobile wallets to use, so if you’d like to use BSC from your pocket, it’s among the best options. Alternatives such as SafePal exist, but we'll stick to Trust Wallet for this guide.
The steps for creating your first Multi-Coin Wallet are very simple and can be done in a matter of minutes.
Download Trust Wallet and launch the app. You will be presented with the screen below. You can “Create a New Wallet” or “Import” an existing one. For new Trust Wallet users, we will be selecting "Create a New Wallet"
This is the most important part of your crypto journey. You need to take note of your recovery seed phrases. Your recovery phrases are the keys to your crypto wallet. So make sure to keep them in a safe place and do not share them with anybody. No support staff or admins of any group or community will ever ask for your recovery phrase. Tap on Continue to proceed.
If you followed Step 3 and backed up your recovery phrase, this will be a breeze. In the correct order, select the words in order to complete the verification process. Click Continue when you are finished.
After going through the backup and verification process, you will be redirected to the main wallet screen. You will see an initial list of coins that you can start funding right away. Congratulations!
Before you proceed, please be aware of the following:
Open up your wallet and select the crypto that you want to Buy. We recommend buying BNB as is it the default purchasing token for everything on Binance Smart Chain (that's where MoonPirate lives.)
Tap on the buy button in the upper right corner.
Choose the amount in USD and the provider will give a quote on how much BNB (or whichever token you've chosen) you will receive. For advanced users, tap on 3rd party provider to see if there is a different provider available.
Depending on the crypto provider, user verification will be required before making a purchase. You will be redirected to their website in order to complete this process.
Once purchase is confirmed, you will receive an email from the crypto provider. Your BNB (or whichever token you've chosen) will be appear in your wallet soon.
For reasons we won't go into in too much detail, before you use your BNB to purchase Binance Smart Chain tokens (that's us) on decentralised exchanges (that's where we are,) you need to convert BNB into Smart Chain BNB. This just takes a second and is a 1:1 swap (minus very, very small network fees.)
Click the BNB in your wallet, click "More" and then click "Swap to Smart Chain." Once you're at this screen, select the amount you want to swap into Smart Chain BNB and proceed.
Even if you're new, you may have heard of decentralised exchanges (DEX) such as PancakeSwap or UniSwap. We've built our very own DEX, especially for you. This makes it easier for newcomers to buy MoonPirate for the first time. VisitPirateSwap HERE
Click "Connect Wallet" then select "WalletConnect" and choose Trust Wallet. Trust Wallet will open and you'll be prompted to connect. Do so, then return to your browser.
Select the amount of Smart Chain BNB (that's what we just converted from regular BNB) that you'd like to swap. PirateSwap will tell you how many MoonPirate tokens you'll receive.
Press "Swap" then "Confirm Swap." You'll be taken back to Trust Wallet to approve the transaction. Head back to your browser and you should see it confirmed. Wait a minute or two (or longer when the network is delayed) and you'll see the transaction complete.
MoonPirate will now appear in your TrustWallet list. You can check your token amount here (notice it slowly going up as you hold it - one of the benefits of owning MoonPirate!)
Of course, we don't expect you to hold MoonPirate indefinitely. If you want to sell in part or in full at any point, simply return to PirateSwap and repeat the process in reverse.
There are numerous ways to invest in MoonPirate and other tokens on Binance Smart Chain's network.
