You will need ETH in your wallet, on the zkSync Era network, to trade or make any other transactions.

If you'd like to trade some Ethereum assets you already own on zkSync Era with lower fees, first bridge your Ethereum tokens to zkSync Era.

Click the ‘Select token’ dropdown menu to open the token selection menu.

Select the token you want to receive.

Enter the amount you want to swap then click ‘Preview swap’.

There may be other offers but by default the best offer is selected. If there are more offers from other providers available, you can view them by selecting the ‘other offers’ dropdown menu. However, in this example there is only one provider.

Select ‘Proceed with swap’ once you are satisfied with your exchange rate.

Your swap is now initiated! You can click ‘Finish’ and continue using your wallet. Your tokens will automatically appear in your tokens list when the swap is complete.

You can click the ‘Activity’ tab at the bottom to view the progress of your swap.
