How do I swap XPR (ETH) to XPR on Android?

Requirements: You need an Ethereum wallet that is supported by WalletConnect, check the supported wallets here.

The Ethereum wallet needs to be a mobile wallet, as currently only a single device is supported for Android through the Bloks.io integration. Trust Wallet has XPR (ETH) listed by default. If you use Trust Wallet, open an incognito tab in your browser.

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

XPR (ETH) token information:

Not all supported wallets will have XPR (ETH)  listed by default. If this is the case, you will need to add it as a custom ERC20 token by adding the following token information:

Contract address: 0xD7EFB00d12C2c13131FD319336Fdf952525dA2af

Decimals: 4

Name: Proton

Symbol: XPR
