How to swap on the Avalanche Network

Swapping with the Uniswap V3 on Avalanche Network is just like swapping on Layer 1 Ethereum.

To swap on Avalanche Network, follow these steps:

  1. Select the tokens you wish to swap.

    There are a limited number of tokens available to swap on Avalanche at launch, but the list will grow as more liquidity pools are created for token pairs.


  2. Select the “Swap” button and review your quoted price, route, and slippage.

    Your trade will only use Uniswap V3 liquidity pools on the Avalanche -- it will not use a different networks liquidity, even if a better price is available on a different network.

  3. If this is your first time swapping the token with the Uniswap protocol on Avalanche, then you’ll need to approve the token in order to trade it.

    In your wallet app or wallet extension, approve the spending for the token you are swapping. Your wallet may require you to enter the number of tokens you want to approve.

    Please enter a number that is greater than or equal to the amount of tokens you are swapping. This is a one-time action that enables the Uniswap protocol smart contracts to swap your token.


  4. In your wallet app or wallet extension, allow the token to be used for swapping. This transaction will require a network fee.


  5. In your wallet, confirm the swap.


  6. Once the swap is confirmed, the transaction is submitted to the blockchain (pending).


  7. You will see “Success” and a green checkmark on screen when the transaction is successfully completed.
