1. In-game wallet forced swap

You can use our in-game wallet swap function in order to swap your crypto. Follow these steps:

- Login to your account

- Click on the Wallet icon and then click on "Connect Your Wallet"

- Connect your Phantom wallet with your in-game wallet

- In the browser's extension, you will be asked to access your wallet and accept our website's request to approve transactions. Click on "Connect" if you agree.

- To swap cryptocurrencies, click on "Swap" below. Here, you will be able to choose between swapping from SOL to USDT or USDC, depending on your available wallet funds.

- Type the desired amount you wish to swap in the "You Pay" field. Alternatively, you can click on "MAX GB" to introduce the maximum amount available in your in-game wallet. Click on "Continue" when you're ready.

2. Live market swap

You can sell your crypto using the Birdeye market functions.

- You can either swap immediately or place a sell offer in the market after accessing your wallet. Click on the "Swap" button once you're ready.

> Keep in mind that Sale offers can be placed at any time and will be completed once another user buys your selected amount.

- After swapping your crypto, you shall receive a validation message and the amount of Crypto you decided to swap for in your Phantom wallet.

Notes: it is recommended that you check for the Cryptocurrency's official address and source code before attempting any swaps in order to prevent any scam issues. You can do this on many sites such as CoinMarketCap: beginners: CoinMarketCap - Solana (SOL)

Similar to Birdeye, follow the steps mentioned above in order to complete the transaction.

3. P2P (Peer-to-peer) Transactions in Binance

- Login to your Binance account. Keep in mind that you will have to meet several KYC requirements in order to fully operate with Cryptocurrencies and P2P operations, as well as having the Crypto of your choosing in your Funding wallet. Binance has its own Tutorial videos for this.

- In the main menu, select "Buy Crypto" and then choose "P2P trading"

- On P2P, click on the "Sell" tab in order to visualize or place sell offers

- Choose the Cryptocurrency you wish to sell

- Select the Fiat currency you wish to receive, in this case we will use PEN (Sol Peruano)

- Once selected, you may now use several filters to easily pick your desired payment methods, such as desired amount, type of bank, region, amongst others.

- Click on the red button (Sell USDT in this case) to start an order and wait for the trader to contact you

- In this last step, you will be asked to introduce the desired amount you wish to sell and the payment method, agreed beforehand with the trader.

- As soon as both sides agree to the transaction, the buyer must place a deposit into the seller's preferred method first and only after will the seller proceed to release the financial assets.

Please note that it's YOUR RESPONSIBILITY to trade with trusted traders, meaning that you alone will have to check the trader's rating, number of completed transactions, time durations, etc. GameBeef will never be responsible for what you do with your own money, and we don't have any liability over any funds lost through this process.
