Tutorial - How to swap your SOL

In the following sub-sections, we'll be diving into tutorials on how any newcomer can utilize any one of these DEXs to swap their SOL to any token.

In this tutorial we'll be swapping SOL to USDC utilizing Jupiter.

Step 1

First and most obviously (duh?), visit Jupiter! Once you're there connect your wallet by clicking on the "Connect Wallet" option visible on top-right corner of the page.

Step 2

After connecting, select the two assets you'd like to swap. The asset in the upper row will be the one that you would like to swap while the one in the lower row would be the one that you would like to receive.

In our case, we'd put SOL in the upper row and USDC in the lower row as shown below.

Step 3

After selecting the two assets you'd like to swap from and to, enter the amount of SOL or any other token you'd like to swap.

For example purposes, we're swapping 2 SOL tokens to receive 47.76 USDC.

After setting the amount, click on Swap upon which you'll receive a pop-up notification on your wallet to approve the transaction. Upon approving the transaction, it will take a few seconds to swap and VOILA!

You're all done! You would be able to see your new balances in your wallet.

Note: Make sure you have enough SOL to approve or reject transactions!

Step 2

Similar to Swaps' tutorial, select the two assets that you would like to swap from and to respectively. Enter the amount of tokens that you'd like to sell of the asset that you're holding.

For this example, we're setting a limit order of 1 SOL.

Step 3

After selecting the amount of SOL you'd like to sell, set the price at which you'd like to sell and also the expiration of this limit order. You can either select from preset Expiration timers or make a custom timer for your limit order.

For our example, we've set a price of 27.656 USDC and the expiration timer to 7 Days.

Step 4

After filling all these details, simple click the "Place Limit Order" button and approve the transaction and you're all done!
