This tutorial assumes you have USDC on Polygon; make sure you have enough funds to avoid disconnection while streaming.
Navigate to the Wallet page and click the + button to start the process for streaming your USDC into the USDCx contract.
After approving the transaction, deposit funds into USDCx contract and head to the Market page to start your DCA stream.
deposit the amount of funds you want to and start your DCA stream
Depending on your RPC URL it may take 10 block confirmations before the app will detect that you have approved your USDC.
Confirm you have a USDCx balance (after streaming USDC) and then click on the USDC-ETH market section to expand it. Enter a rate in USDCx/month you want to DCA into ETH and then click the Start/Edit button.
Once this transaction confirms, your DCA flow has been initiated. Check back in 30 minutes to see the ETH you've earned. The swap for this market triggers every 30 minutes so you can have a visual of how your money is moving!
You can start a stream for more than your wallet balance. For the above example, the USDCx balance will exhaust after 1 month because you're streaming at a rate of 10 USDCx/month and you have 10 USDCx. If you want to continue with your monthly streams, just approve and deposit some USDC in the wallet page.
After earning and accumulating some WETHx, you could withdraw it and bridge to another DeFi protocol such as AAVE. To do this, go to the wallet page and click on the - button, input amount and withdraw WETH from the WETHx contract. Check your wallet for confirmation that you have WETH in your wallet.
Hey, you made it this far in the tutorial so big ups! 🥳
