With the rising interest in decentralized finance (DeFi) and the burgeoning ecosystems surrounding it, Cy9ni (C9) has become a token of keen interest to many. If you're new to the crypto sphere or simply want a clear step-by-step guide on how to acquire C9 tokens using MetaMask, you've come to the right place. Let's dive in.


Before we proceed, ensure you have:

  • MetaMask installed on your device.

  • Some Ethereum (ETH) in your MetaMask wallet on the Arbitrum One Network to cover transaction fees and your desired purchase amount. Remember, this ETH should be on the Arbitrum One Network, not the Ethereum Mainnet.

  • Arbitrum One Network added to your MetaMask (refer to our previous article on how to add the network).

Step-by-Step Guide to Buying Cy9ni (C9) on SushiSwap via MetaMask:

1. Connect to Arbitrum One Network:

Open MetaMask and switch to the Arbitrum One Network by selecting it from the dropdown at the top center of the interface.

2. Access SushiSwap:

  • Navigate to the SushiSwap website.

  • In the top-right corner, click on the "Connect Wallet" button.

  • Select "MetaMask" from the list of wallet options provided.

3. Add the Cy9ni Token to MetaMask:

To easily track your C9 balance and ensure you're transacting with the correct token, add it to MetaMask:

  • Click on the "Add Token" button at the bottom of your MetaMask interface.

  • Select "Custom Token" and paste the Cy9ni token address: 0xb521A48F233f71C29D0683143340DE5bf68F952d.

  • The token symbol (C9) and decimals should auto-populate. Confirm the details and click "Next," then "Add Tokens."

4. Swap ETH for C9 on SushiSwap:

  • On the SushiSwap interface, ensure "Swap" is selected.

  • For the input (or "From") currency, choose "ETH."

  • For the output (or "To") currency, click on the dropdown and paste the Cy9ni token address. Select C9 when it appears.

  • Enter the amount of ETH you wish to swap for C9.

  • Before confirming the swap, adjust the slippage: Click on the gear icon (settings) and set your slippage tolerance to a minimum of 7%. This adjustment is crucial due to the reflection mechanics of the Cy9ni token.

5. Confirm and Wait:

  • Click on "Swap" and then "Confirm Swap."

  • MetaMask will prompt you to approve the transaction. Ensure you check the gas fees and total amount.

  • Confirm the transaction in MetaMask.

6. Check Your C9 Balance:

After the transaction has been confirmed, you can check your C9 balance in MetaMask. If it doesn't automatically appear, you've already added the token in Step 3, so simply refresh or reopen MetaMask.

Important Notes:

  • Slippage: Due to Cy9ni's reflection mechanics, a higher slippage (minimum 7%) is necessary. This ensures your transaction goes through without issues.

There you have it – a detailed guide to purchasing Cy9ni (C9) tokens using MetaMask on SushiSwap. As always, do your due diligence and ensure you're transacting safely in the decentralized world. Happy trading!
