Prepare for transfering tokens to Solana

Prepare tokens

Since nearly all CEXs currently support SOL, you have complete freedom to choose where to make your SOL purchase(s). The most popular Solana-supported exchanges include Binance, Huobi, Gate.io, KuCoin, and many more.

In the following section, I'll go into greater detail about which exchange you should use to purchase SOL.

Prepare your SPL wallet to store tokens

It is necessary to have a non-custodial wallet after you buy tokens on CEX to store tokens and interact with DeFi. At this time, many different wallets, including the Coin98 Super Wallet, can store SOL coins.

First, you should have an Solana Wallet to store your SOL, this article will be usefull for you: How to create & use Solana Wallet

Following these simple steps, you can store SOL and other SPL tokens.

Step 1: Click on a Solana wallet on the main screen.
Step 2: Select "Receive".
Step 3: Copy the wallet address or scan the QR code address and send your assets to this address

Transfer tokens from other Blockchains to Solana Blockchain (SPL)

After buying SOL and having a Solana wallet (SPL), you can participate in events or skin in the game in the Solana Ecosystem, such as joining lending, yield farming or staking activities on this chain.

Option 1: Buy tokens on CEXs & withdraw to a SPL Wallet

Transfer and withdrawal fees will vary depending on the exchange. If you want to transfer your assets, you should pick the CEX that is most convenient for you to use. I'll recommend a few exchanges here, such as Binance, KuCoin, Huobi, Gate, etc.

To begin, you'll need USDT or USDC stablecoins in order to purchase SOL. US dollars (USD) or other currencies in your country can be used to buy USDT if you don't have stablecoin yet.

Step 1: Login to the Binance Mobile App. I recommend reading this "How to use Binance'' article

Step 2: Choose “P2P Trading” in your Binance Homepage

Step 3: In this step, you will see:

Number 2 indicates which fiat currency you have now to buy USDT.
Number 3 indicates which token you want to buy (e.g. USDT, BTC, BUSD, etc.).
Number 4 displays a list of sellers who will sell you USDT in exchange for your fiat currency.

After you've decided on your preferred sellers, simply follow the Binance instructions to complete the transaction (Remember to read the instructions carefully).

Step 1: On Binance exchange, use USDT to purchase SOL.

Step 2: Transfer SOL to the Solana wallet by typing in your Coin98 wallet address.

Option 2: Use Cross-chain Bridges to transfer tokens to SPL Tokens

For Solana blockchain, there are currently two most prominent cross-chain bridges that support transfer tokens back and forth to Solana. You are free to select any bridge that makes you feel at ease.

1. Allbridge

Allbridge provides an easy and reliable way to transfer assets between different blockchains. It acts as the bridge between EVM and non-EVM chains. Allbridge supports up to 13 chains and more to be announced in the future

The mission of Allbridge is to remove any borders among different blockchains, which maximizes the capital efficiency in the DeFi ecosystem. Therefore, if you need to move assets from any network to the Solana blockchain, Allbridge is a good option.

2. Coin98 Super Wallet SpaceGate

The Coin98 Super App currently supports cross-chain bridges with popular blockchains such as Ethereum (ETH & ERC20), Solana (SOL & SPL), Avalanche (C-chain & X-chain), Boba Network, Arbitrum (Ethereum's L2), Optimism, C98 on BNB Chain, and Tomo Chain.

Because SOL is the native token of the Solana blockchain, it will be displayed by default in multi-chain wallets. If you need to add a new token to this multichain wallet, follow these simple steps:

Step 1: On the homepage, select MoreCustom Tokens.

Yield Farming

Farming is a method of providing liquidity for AMMs in order to receive rewards. Farming produces much higher profits than lending and staking, but there is a risk of impermanent loss.

You can also choose Yield Aggregators as they offer different strategies to find the best yields for farming/staking assets. This is one of the most important sectors in DeFi as it helps users gain a massive amount of profit, which is one of the main reasons why anyone would want to participate in DeFi.

Some notable Yield Agreggator projects on Solana include Sunny, Tulip Protocol, Quarry, etc.

Gaming & NFT

The NFT and gaming sectors are two of the important sectors on Solana. Star Atlas, SolPunks, Solible, and FARKT are just a few of the notable gaming and NFT booms that have helped Solana thrive in 2021.

In addition, there are numerous NFT game projects built on this platform, which indicates that the Solana system has potential traction to growth. Don't forget to follow the Solanians on Twitter if you're interested in the SOL ecosystem.
