PancakeSwap: the Beginner’s Guide for wBTCV Users

Bitcoin Vault (BTCV) is always looking for ways to expand its ecosystem and improve user experience. This is what led to the creation of its first wrapped token, wBTCV. With a new product for its users, the project needed a forward-thinking platform to launch its token. Enter Binance Smart Chain (BSC), the Decentralized Finance (DeFi) platform that gives Ethereum a run for its money.  

By launching its first wrapped token on BSC, BTCV has opened many doors for its users, one of which is the opportunity to add wBTCV to one of BSC’s high-performance Decentralized Exchanges (DEXes). With around USD 5.06 billion in total value locked in the platform, a dynamic figure, PancakeSwap was the clear winner. Now, BTCV has created its first liquidity pool. All that remains is to explain how BTCV users can take advantage of this new avenue for growth.  

Setting up a Compatible Wallet 

PancakeSwap is a DeFi application that requires a compatible platform to facilitate a variety of actions. MetaMask is a wallet that interacts with PancakeSwap, making it possible to store assets, exchange tokens, allocate funds for staking, provide liquidity, begin farming, and more. BTCV users will need to install MetaMask to take advantage of all the opportunities available on PancakeSwap.  

The following is a brief explanation of how to install MetaMask:

  • Buying in 

BNB is the native token used on BSC. It powers every transaction performed within the ecosystem. A small BNB fee is required to make any transaction on BSC, including those performed through PancakeSwap. BNB tokens can be accessed via Binance Exchange.  

To sign up for Binance and purchase BNB: 

  1. Visit this Binance registration page and enter your details. 
  1. Once registered, open the dashboard and select “Buy Crypto” in the main menu. 
  1. Select your preferred payment options (e.g., Credit/Debit Card) from the drop-down menu. 

You can now cross BNB off the shopping list and begin whipping some sweetness into your portfolio. It’s time to make the most of PancakeSwap.
