For detailed guidance on how to perform these steps, refer to the following guides:

1. Prerequisites

You will need a Web3 wallet supported by SushiSwap in order to acquire GMI tokens as well as add liquidity to or remove liquidity from the ETH-GMI pair on SushiSwap. We recommend using MetaMask since it is the wallet supported by GMI Marketplace.

Should you need assistance in creating a new wallet using MetaMask, refer to the following guide:

Keep in mind that in order to perform any activity on SushiSwap platform, you will need to have enough ETH in your wallet to cover the transaction fees.

Once you confirm, you will be taken back to the SushiSwap page and a Transaction Submitted screen will appear. It will give you the option to add the GMI Token to MetaMask so you can check and manipulate your balance.

2.8. (Optional) A MetaMask confirmation window will appear. Click on the “Add Token” button to add the GMI Token to MetaMask. Once you add the GMI token, you will be able to check your balance and send/receive GMI tokens directly from MetaMask.

3.3. Enter the amount of tokens you wish to add liquidity for both ETH and GMI. Keep in mind that the quantities need to have about the same value - for example, if you add $100 worth of ETH liquidity, you will also need to add $100 worth of GMI liquidity.

3.4. Once satisfied with your selection, click on the “Approve GMI” button. Confirm the operation on the newly opened MetaMask pop-up, then, once the transaction has completed, click on the “Add Liquidity” button.
