How do I swap tokens to wrapped Proton tokens in the Proton Wallet?

Current supported swappable tokens: ETH, wBTC, TUSD, MTL, XPR.

Requirements: You need an Ethereum wallet that is supported by WalletConnect, check the supported wallets here. If you use Trust Wallet, make sure to open an incognito tab in your browser.

If you have tokens in a non-supported wallet, you will need to transfer it to a supported wallet in order to be able to swap.
