How To Get Free $FTM For Gas
Once you bridge into the Fantom Opera ecosystem with your Metamask wallet you will now be using $FTM as your means of paying for gas fees and of course, you aren't going to waltz in with any to make swaps! That said, defyswap are here to assist!
Requirements: 1. your Discord account must be at least 30 days old 2. you must not have used the faucet within a month
Here's how to get free $FTM gas directly to your Fantom wallet to assist with gas fees;
- 3.Type "!faucet" in the #faucet channel
- 4.Send "!withdraw yourwalletaddress" to Fantom Tip Bot in a direct message. This starts your withdraw process. For example, "!withdraw 0x848d47d6a68fc0ce61e234257fa7024c59d331dc". You can find the "FantomTip" bot through search or on the right side of the screen under bots.
- 5.Receive Confirmation. FantomTip will send you a quick note that it is working on your withdrawal. Please be patient!
Where is the Faucet?
You can find the Faucet Tip Bot on the defyswap Discord to the right, if you're using desktop. Or you can search for the tip bot. We have a channel dedicated to the faucet, at:
Why should I use it?
When you first move over to the FTM chain you will no longer use ETH, BNB etc for gas fees. You will now be required to use FTM. That said, when you make your first swap of your native tokens you are bridging you will need to pay the gas fee for that transaction in FTM, which of course, you won't have as of yet. Fantom strives to be a very welcoming chain and entire community the the faucet system is just another example of how we all strive towards such!
I followed the steps and there was no fund drip; am I doing something wrong?
Please ensure you take a look at the requirements above. You must have a Discord account that is at least 30 days old, you may only make a request and get a successful drip from the faucet once per month. The faucet could have high traffic in which case, you will need to be patient and try again in a few minutes.
I would like to give back to the Fantom & defyswap community by funding the faucet, but how?
- 1.In the #faucet channel, type !fund
- 2.An address for the faucet will be replied to you query, copy it.
- 3.Send your amount of $FTM you'd like to contribute to the address from step 2.
- 4.Flex on everyone around and bask in the adoration of your new fans.
