1. Getting Started: Setting Up a Wallet

To use blunded, you’ll need a Web3 wallet.

Imagine your Web3 wallet is like a digital purse that holds all your digital money, just like how a real purse holds your coins and bills. In the online world of cryptocurrency, this purse is super important because it lets you buy, trade, and keep your digital coins safe. The “Web3” part is like a special key that lets your purse talk to certain places on the internet, like the blunded trade platform, so you can do all kinds of cool stuff with your digital money! From now on we will call this purse a wallet. 

To get this purse, you’ll need to download a Web3 Wallet. Some popular ones are MetaMask and Trust Wallet. Once you download it, you’ll get your own special digital wallet that can hold all sorts of different digital coins!


For a full explanation about Web3 Wallets, you can check out this link:

Setting up the wallet: Understanding and Safeguarding Your Recovery Phrase

Upon setting up your Web3 wallet, you’ll be provided with a recovery phrase. This phrase is a series of 12 or 24 words that act as your “master key” to your digital assets. Losing this phrase means losing access to your funds, so it’s crucial to take the necessary precautions:

Write it Down: Physically write down your recovery phrase and store it in a secure location. Never screenshot it or save it on a device connected to the internet.

Double-check: Confirm that you’ve written down the phrase correctly. A single mistake can render it useless.

Secure it: Use a safety deposit box, a secure safe, or any other secure location that only you or trusted individuals can access. Some individuals store different parts of the code in different locations. 

Never Share It: Never share your recovery phrase with anyone, not even with support teams or family members. Sharing this phrase is akin to giving away your bank PIN and card. Again, no company will EVER ask for your seedphrase.

Backup: Make multiple copies of the written phrase and store them in separate, secure locations.

If all of this feels a bit too much, no worries! You can schedule a 1-on-1 appointment with the blunded Helpdesk, and we’ll walk you through it step-by-step:

  6. Network Congestion: If the Ethereum, BNB Chain, or Polygon networks are congested, you may experience delays. Check the current status of the network you’re using.
  7. Check for Announcements: Sometimes blunded may be undergoing maintenance or updates. Make sure to check our social media channels for any related announcements.

3. Understanding the Chains: Ethereum, BNB Chain, and Polygon

Now that you’ve connected your Web3 wallet to the blunded trade platform, you may notice some different options: Ethereum (ETH), BNB Chain (BNB), and Polygon (MATIC). 

What Are Chains?

In the world of cryptocurrencies, a ‘chain’ refers to a kind of digital network where all the transactions happen. It’s like a specialized roadway for certain types of cars (or in this case, cryptocurrencies).

  1. Ethereum (ETH): This is the oldest and most well-known of the three. Imagine it as the main highway that most people use.
  2. BNB Chain (BNB) & Polygon (MATIC): These one’s are newer and faster. They are also gaining popularity because they are less expensive to use.

Types of Tokens

When you will enter the trade platform, there will be many different tokens/crypto’s available. There is a small difference which is good to understand. 

Native coins:
 These are the ‘home currency’ of each chain. ETH, BNB and MATIC.
Non-Native Tokens: These are other digital currencies you can trade on each chain.

Switching Chains
You can switch between these chains almost as easily as you’d switch radio stations while driving. When you pick a different chain in the blunded interface, a pop-up will appear from your Web3 wallet asking if you’d like to switch to the network. Blunded created it as such, that you only will have to switch blockchain/networks, if you are actually going to use them.

Accept the Switch: Just click on ‘Switch network’ to make the switch.

Adding a New Chain: If you haven’t configured a chain yet, don’t worry! A pop-up message will guide you through adding it to your wallet.

Safety First!
Before we move on, an important note: Always double-check any pop-ups asking for permission. Make sure they’re genuinely from your wallet. Don’t proceed if something looks off or if you don’t trust the source.

If this all seems new or confusing, it’s okay. Feel free to schedule a 1-on-1 appointment with the blunded Helpdesk: or reach us on the chat. 

4. Making Your First Trade

Great! Now that you’re familiar with the chains and your wallet is connected, let’s get to the fun part—making your first trade, an exchange of one type of currency for another.

Steps for Making a Trade

  1. Choose Your Tokens: On the blunded interface, you’ll see options for selecting the tokens you want to swap below ‘Trade My’.
  2. Set the Amount: Decide how much you want to trade. For example, you might want to trade MATIC for a certain amount of a non-native token like USDC. In our screenshot we enter 6,35 MATCIC for USDC.
  3. Approval (If Needed): If you’re trading non-native tokens (so non-ETH/MATIC/BNB), a pop-up will appear from your Web3 wallet asking for permission to proceed.

    – Why Approval?: Think of this as asking for permission to use your digital ‘cash’ or tokens. You’re essentially saying, “Yes, I trust to use these tokens for this trade.”

    ⚠️ Safety Tip: Always be cautious when giving approval. Only do so for projects you trust. Never approve tokens that have been randomly sent to your wallet by projects you don’t know. This could be a form of phishing.

    Screenshot of the approval pop-up.

  4. Confirm the trade: Once everything looks good, go ahead and confirm the transaction in your wallet.
  5. Celebrate, But Verify: After you confirm, you may see some digital confetti and a message saying ‘Trade Successful’. While it’s a moment to celebrate, always double-check your Web3 wallet to ensure the tokens are there.

Always Double-Check
Once the trade is done, always check your Web3 wallet to make sure the tokens have arrived. This is your final step to ensure everything went as planned.

After completing a trade, we strongly recommend disconnecting your wallet from the blunded trading platform for added security. Make it a habit to do this on all platforms you interact with.

5. Important Safety Warnings

Recognizing and Avoiding Common Scams
The decentralized finance (DeFi) landscape offers numerous opportunities but also comes with its own set of risks. Below are some common scams to be aware of:

  1. Fake Tokens: Always verify the contract address of a token before trading. Scammers often list tokens with names similar to well-known projects.
  2. Rug Pulls: This is when liquidity is removed from a token, making it worthless. Refer to our section on ‘What is a Rug Pull and How Can I Avoid It?’ in the FAQ for more information.
  3. Phishing Sites: Be cautious of websites or links that appear to be identical to blunded but are actually fraudulent sites designed to steal your information.Only give permission to spend your tokens to websites and projects you trust.
  4. Social Engineering: Scammers might pose as support agents or trusted members of the community to trick you into revealing sensitive information. blunded will never ask for your private keys or recovery phrases.
  5. Smart Contract Flaws: Always trade tokens from reputable sources. blunded does not scan, audit, or endorse any project; we simply provide the platform for buying and selling.
  6. Unauthorized Apps: Only use verified and trusted applications to interact with your Web3 wallet and blunded. Installing unauthorized software can put your funds at risk.
  7. Pump and Dump Schemes: Be cautious of tokens that have unusually high volatility and social media hype. These could be schemes to artificially inflate the token price before selling it off.

By staying informed and cautious, you can significantly reduce your risk in the DeFi landscape. If you encounter any suspicious activity, please report it to our support team immediately.

Gas fees are transaction fees on the Ethereum network. Other blockchains have similar fees but might call them differently.

Yes, most Web3 wallets allow you to adjust the gas fee, but be cautious as setting it too low could delay your transaction.

Your transaction could get stuck and take a long time to process, or potentially fail.

This means that there are probably not enough people trading the coin, probably the project you are looking at is very small.
