Introduction to Verse Staking

Verse Staking is a mechanism to reward long-term holders of VERSE with additional VERSE tokens. Users who stake (deposit) their VERSE tokens in the staking smart contract are programmatically rewarded with VERSE tokens.

Please refer to this guide for more information on Verse Staking, including step-by-step instructions.

Introduction to liquidity pools (Verse Pools)

You can provide liquidity to the Verse DEX by depositing assets into liquidity pools. You’ll earn yield in the form of the fees paid by people who trade the pair. This feature is available in both the Bitcoin.com Wallet app and via the web at Verse DEX.

Get additional information on liquidity pools including step-by-step instructions for providing liquidity to Bitcoin.com's decentralized exchange Verse DEX here.

Introduction to Verse Farms

Verse Farms are a collection of smart contracts on Bitcoin.com's decentralized exchange Verse DEX where Liquidity Providers (LPs) can deposit LP tokens to earn rewards. Farm rewards are paid on top of the trading fees you already earn by providing liquidity. Verse Farm rewards come from the Verse Ecosystem Incentives program. Specifically, 35% of the Verse token supply is allocated to rewards distributed via yield farming, staking, airdrops, and other mechanisms.

It’s a 2-step process to yield farm on Verse DEX.

  1. Get liquidity pool (LP) tokens.

  2. Deposit those LP tokens into a farm.

  • For more information on Verse Farms, please see the Verse Farms FAQ page.

  • For step-by-step instructions on how to use Verse Farms, please see this guide.

How to do cross chain swaps

You can toggle between CEX and DEX modes, and the CEX (centralized exchange) enables cross-chain low fee swaps of popular coins on blockchain networks that aren’t yet supported by the DEX. Cross-chain swaps are facilitated by our partners Sideshift and Changenow.

Here’s how it works:

  1. From the network drop-down menu, select “Centralized” then “Connect wallets.”

  2. Choose a connection method. If you’ve already created a Bitcoin.com account, you can sign in with Apple or Google. You can also sign in to your Bitcoin.com Wallet app with WalletConnect or, separately, choose to connect to your Ethereum wallets via MetaMask.

  3. Once connected, your Wallet’s assets will be shown in the Verse dashboard.

  4. Select the assets to swap, then select “Swap Preview.” This will display a QR code for a wallet address and requested amount of cryptocurrency.

  5. Scan the code in your Bitcoin.com Wallet app and confirm the transaction.

  6. You’re done! You’ll receive the swapped asset in your Bitcoin.com Wallet app once the transaction has been processed.

How to trade on smartBCH

Verse DEX enables permissionless trading on smartBCH, the Bitcoin Cash sidechain. For this, we recommend interacting with the Verse DEX via MetaMask. Here’s a complete guide for getting set up with Metamask.

Getting set up on smartBCH

To use the Verse DEX on smartBCH you’ll need to add smartBCH to your web3 wallet. While the VerseDEX will soon be integrated directly to the Bitcoin.com Wallet app, for now we recommend trading on the Verse DEX using MetaMask.

Here’s how to set it up:

Adding smartBCH RPC to MetaMask

  1. Add smartBCH network to MetaMask
