To help train Botto's algorithm and vote on your favorite art pieces, you'll need to get your hands on some $BOTTO tokens.
Getting $BOTTO is a relatively straightforward process provided you have funded your Ethereum wallet with some Ether.
Uniswap is an 'automated market maker'. Like the name of the website suggests, Uniswap is a way of exchanging tokens for one another.
In short, you will be using Uniswap to exchange some of your Ether (ETH) for $BOTTO. Make sure you don't exchange all of it, as you will need some Ether in your wallet to pay for fees.
You're presented with the following screen, where there are two corresponding drop-down menus:
Use the first dropdown option to select ETH. As a reminder, you'll be exchanging some ETH for $BOTTO tokens through Uniswap.
Specify a quantity of ETH you'd like to exchange to $BOTTO.
Use the second dropdown option, copy-pasting this address into the search bar:
Then, hit Swap.
You will be asked to Confirm Swap, which in turn will generate a prompt from MetaMask.
Hit Confirm - then wait for the transaction to confirm! As soon as the transaction completes, you'll have your $BOTTO tokens.
