To use the SAN token with our platform, you need to have it in a MetaMask wallet or a wallet supported by MetaMask (like Trezor or Ledger). We'll describe the three steps necessary to achieve that.
For instructions on how to install and set up MetaMask, see https://metamask.io. You will need an Ethereum address that will be used to hold SAN tokens, as well as to interact with the Santiment platform. You can either create a new wallet in MetaMask, import an already existing wallet, or connect MetaMask to a hardware wallet like Ledger or Trezor.

To get SAN tokens, you will need to swap them for ETH or another ERC20 token. You may acquire ETH from a centralized exchange like Bitfinex and then transfer it to your MetaMask wallet.

You can use decentralized exchanges or decentralized exchange aggregators to swap ETH or some other ERC20 token for SAN tokens. They all work very similarly. Connect your Metamask wallet first, and then swap ETH for SAN tokens.
The SAN token is also available on Uniswap at the best rates.

We'll detect the SAN you're holding and grant you access to our discounts, based on the amount of tokens you hold.
