Swap using a DEX - Introduction

A swap is a crypto conversion feature that lets you convert (swap) one token for another using Decentralized Exchanges (DEX).

When you use swap, your funds are sent directly from your Wallet to a DEX service, like Uniswap or Sushiswap, to execute the conversion. This enables you to swap for thousands of tokens that may not be available on a centralized exchange.
