How to On-ramp into Astroport with Kado Ramp

Set Up Your Terra Wallet

You'll first need to download the Terra Chrome extension and create a Terra wallet to interact with any Terra ecosystem dApp. See Terra’s guide to download Terra Station and create a wallet.



Kado Ramp

Now that you've created your Terra wallet, you're ready to on-ramp! Go to ramp.kado.money website, enter the amount of UST you want to purchase, and click "Buy Now".



You will then be prompted to enter your Terra wallet address. Go back to Terra Station to find your wallet address where it says "Connect" in the top right corner, and copy.



Once you paste your wallet address and click "Buy UST", you'll be prompted to confirm your email address. Check your email for the 4-digit code, and confirm on Kado Ramp. Next you'll go through KYC as a first time user. Once you provide your information and pass KYC, you will not have to do this again as a returning user. For more info on Kado KYC, see here.

After passing KYC approval, you're ready to enter your payment information to complete the purchase of UST. Follow the instructions to connect your debit, credit card, or bank account.

Once you submit the purchase, you'll be prompted via email to confirm the transfer, which is a necessary last step to send the UST to your wallet address. After confirming the transfer via email, your UST should arrive in your Terra wallet within a few minutes.

Astroport

Once UST has been received in your Terra wallet, go to a[stroport.fi](https://astroport.fi/), Astroport's website.



To enter the Astroport web app where you can start using the platform, click on "Enter App" or "Start Trading".



Now that you're in the Astroport web app, you can see all the different ways you can use the platform. Trade tokens, provide liquidity, view locked liquidity, see if you're eligible for an Airdrop; and there are many more functionalities coming to Astroport. See Astroport's docs to dive into the details.



The last step is simply to connect your Terra wallet. Click "Connect your Wallet" in the top right corner (or bottom of the screen). Once the wallet is connected, you're all set to use Astroport!



Make Your First Trade

Make sure you're on the "Swap" tab at the top of the website. On the swap widget, select UST as the first token you're going to spend, and pick a token from the drop down menu you want to buy. Once you've selected your tokens and amount you want to purchase, click "Swap Tokens". You'll be prompted to sign the transaction, and then the tokens will show up in your wallet!
