Finally, you need to choose and connect your Metamask wallet with the network selected as Avalanche.

Get $AVAX in Metamask

The TraderJoe platform is in the Avalanche network. So, to use the platform and its services, users need to hold the AVAX token in their Metamask wallet (Avalanche network). We have transferred a sufficient amount of AVAX tokens from our Binance exchange account to our Metamask wallet.

The trade or swap feature allows the users to exchange one token with another.

To swap, select your input and the output token. Next, enter the amount of the token that you wish to exchange. The application will display the amount of the desired token that you will receive.

Then, you need to confirm the process. Once the transaction is successful, you can see the resultant token in your Metamask wallet (Avalanche network).


Users who wish to trade are required to pay a trading fee of 0.3%, which is further divided into the following:

  • 25% – Paid to the Liquidity providers of the pool.
  • 05% – Sent to JOE token farm

Add Liquidity into TraderJoe’s Liquidity Pool 

Users can add liquidity into TraderJoe’s liquidity pools and receive a reward of 0.25% of the trading fees. Also, users depositing their tokens into the liquidity pools receive liquidity pool (LP) tokens representing their share in the pool. They can further deposit this LP token into the Farm pool to maximize their benefits.

You can deposit your tokens into any existing pool or create a new pool.

Therefore, you need to select the pool where you wish to deposit your tokens in the same proportion to add liquidity.

To do this, go to the Add tab and select the tokens to enter the amount of tokens that you wish to deposit into the pool. If you are adding liquidity for the first time, you have to Approve the process first before actually submitting the tokens into the pool.

Once you have approved, the supply button will become visible. Click on it to supply your tokens into the pool.


Wait for the transaction to complete. Once it is done, you will become a liquidity provider and be eligible to earn rewards from every trading against your participating pool.

You can check your pool share from the dashboard.


Remove Liquidity in TraderJoe’s Liquidity Pool

Users can remove their liquidity (partial/complete) from the pool whenever they want. When a liquidity provider opts to remove their liquidity, they get their deposit token back and the rewards they have earned during the period their tokens were in the pool.

To remove your liquidity, select the liquidity pool (if you have more than one) and go to the Remove tab. Then, enter the % of liquidity you wish to withdraw. Also, if you are doing this activity for the first time, you have to approve the process before the final removal from the pool.

Once approved, the remove button will be enabled. Click on the Remove button to finally remove your liquidity from the pool.


Once the transaction is successful, you will find your tokens contributing to the liquidity pool are freed and added to your wallet.

Staking the LP Tokens on TraderJoe

Farming is a process of maximizing profits by staking your liquidity pool tokens into the farm pool. Therefore, you can check the list of all available farm pools on TraderJoe here.


We have some AVAX-USDT liquidity pool tokens that we will deposit into the farm pool.

To deposit, select the farm pool first. Enter the amount of LP token that you wish to deposit into the AVAX-USDT.E farm pool. Then, approve the process and click on the Stake button to deposit your LP tokens into the pool.


Once the transaction is successful, you can check your farm pool details from the dashboard.


Therefore, farming offers the users $JOE tokens as a reward accumulated and shown in the Pending Rewards section.

Finally, users can harvest the rewards periodically or be harvested automatically when they choose to remove their tokens from the farm pool.

Unstake LP Tokens in TraderJoe

To unstake tokens, users can remove their staked liquidity pool tokens from the farm pool at any time. There is no locking period.

To do that, users need to select your farm pool and go to the Unstake tab. Then, enter the amount of pool token you wish to withdraw and confirm the process.


Once the transaction is done, your liquidity pool token is unstaked and available in your account.

In the next part of this article, we will discuss the Lending and staking features supported by the TraderJoe platform.
