Provide Liquidity

On this page you will find a step-by-step guide for becoming a Liquidity Provider in a Snek Swap (XYK) pool. Providing liquidity allows you to earn rewards from the fees generated by trades in the pool.

This guide covers both processes of adding and withdrawing liquidity.

Before deciding to become a liquidity provider, we encourage you to visit our Snek Swap product page and to get yourself familiar with the features and caveats of XYK pools.

Add Liquidity#

Step 0: Bridge Tokens#

Before you can provide liquidity for a pool with BSX and aUSD or KSM, you will first need to bridge these non-native assets into the Basilisk chain. For this purpose, you can use the Karura Bridge.

The bridge can also be used to transfer BSX, aUSD or KSM out of the Basilisk chain and into Karura or Kusama.

For a step-by-step guidance on transfering tokens between Kusama chains, please visit our bridging quide.
