AtomicDEX Funding and First Trade

Here's your guide to using the AtomicDEX app.

Now that you have downloaded and installed AtomicDEX, here's how you can use the built-in wallet and decentralized exchange.

Step 1: Funding Your Wallet

  • If you don't see this screen, make sure to read our guide on how to download and setup AtomicDEX.
  • When you log in to AtomicDEX, you see the Dashboard tab. Click on "Add asset" to enable a cryptocurrency in your wallet.

  • In this guide, we're finding RICK and MORTY testcoins and adding them as our first crypto assets on AtomicDEX. Note: You can also use the same steps to generate your Bitcoin wallet address or wallet addresses for various real assets.
  • As you can see here, you need to search "Rick" and select the corresponding checkbox.
  • Click "Enable" to enable RICK. Follow the same steps to add MORTY.

  • You can click "Receive" to find your RICK address. You can now send RICK from an external wallet if you already have some.

  • If you don't have any RICK in an external wallet, no worries!
  • You can grab free testcoins from the RICK faucet by clicking "Faucet".
  • You also have the option to use the faucet button to add MORTY testcoins to your AtomicDEX wallet.

Step 2: Making Your First Atomic Swap

  • Click 'Swap' within the Wallet tab or click on the DEX tab to begin trading on AtomicDEX.

  • You might see the RICK and MORTY trading pair appear automatically on the trading interface.
  • If you don't see this trading pair, you can select it by clicking the two rectangular boxes and finding the coins from there.
  • Note: Because RICK and MORTY are testcoins, they don't have a price chart available on AtomicDEX. However, TradingView charts are available for several trading pairs listed on AtomicDEX.

  • As with any orderbook system, you either find an open order form the orderbook or create a new order.
  • In this example, let's find an open order from the Order Book column. Then click "Start Swap" to begin the swap.
  • Note: In AtomicDEX, can also set custom price points to create limit orders or use the slider to indicate how much of an asset you wish to trade.
