What is Zilla Shares ($ZSHARE)?

How and Where to Buy Zilla Shares ($ZSHARE)

The $ZILLA algorithmic token serves as the backbone of a rapidly growing ecosystem aimed towards bringing liquidity and new use cases to the Avalanche network.

Zilla Shares (ZSHARE) are one of the ways to measure the value of the ZILLA Protocol and shareholder trust in its ability to maintain ZILLA close to peg. During epoch expansions the protocol mints ZILLA and distributes it proportionally to all ZSHARE holders who have staked their tokens in the Boardroom.

ZSHARE holders have voting rights (governance) on proposals to improve the protocol and future use cases within the ZILLA finance ecosystem.

Inspired by the original idea behind Basis as well as its predecessors (bDollar and soup), Zilla Finance is a multi-token protocol which consists of the following three tokens:

How to buy Zilla Shares ($ZSHARE)?

The well-known website Coinbase has already enabled trading for Bitcoin Cash, Ether, and Litecoin, but what about what’s commonly referred to as altcoins? Here’s how you can buy Zilla Shares ($ZSHARE)!

Step 1: Register on Fiat-to-Crypto Exchange

In this case, we need to buy USDT (USDT) from Coinbase.

Coinbase is also one of the largest crypto exchanges that accept fiat deposits. Use the link below to register at Coinbase and you will receive a free amount of $10 worth of BTC after buying $100 worth of cryptos.

SIGN UP ON COINBASE & GET $10!

This can be done by going to the website and clicking “Sign Up.” You will be required to enter your name, email address, create a password and verify your email address.

Verify Coinbase Account

Coinbase KYC

During the KYC process, you may be required to add a picture of yourself holding up your government-issued ID and a picture of yourself holding up your driver’s license or passport. Once this is complete, you should have successfully registered and can now buy cryptocurrency!

Step 2: Buy USDT with fiat money

Note: If you use a card on Coinbase, your fees will be higher, but your purchases will be instant. It’s cheaper to use bank transfers, but it’s slow — it can take up to a week to receive your coins. When your payment details are verified, click on the ‘buy/sell’ button in the top menu.

Step 3: Transfer USDT to an Altcoin Exchange

Now you will need to find an exchange that allows you to deposit USDT and trade it for ZSHARE. As Zilla Shares is currently listed on PancakeSwap we will guide you through how to convert your USDT on the platform.

We’ll be using Binance, but there are many other exchanges like Gate.io, Bitmart, and MEXC that offer Altcoins.

Step 4: Convert your USDT into BNB on Binance

Once you’re set up on Binance, it’s time to convert some USDT into BNB. You can do this by going to “Funds” and then “Deposits & Withdrawals,” where you’ll see a list of different coins supported by Binance. Scroll down until you find USDT in the list and click the Deposit button for it.

SIGN UP ON BINANCE

Binance will give you a unique address to send your coins to copy this address and paste it into your Coinbase wallet (it will look something like this: bbq3dgjm…).

Once you’ve transferred your USDT to Binance, it will take about 10–15 minutes for your funds to become available for trading. Once they’re available, trade your USDT to Binance Coin (BNB).

Step 5: Transfer BNB to your own wallet

Now head over to PancakeSwap. First of all, if you haven’t done so already, please sign up for an account by clicking on the yellow button in the top right corner. That’s where you’ll store your Zilla Shares tokens and access a wide range of new features.

Once you’ve signed up, click on the “Connect Wallet” button. This will open MetaMask, a browser plugin that will allow you to send your BNB tokens to PancakeSwap.

If you’ve already got a Metamask account, skip ahead to the next part. If not, go to MetaMask.io, click “Get Chrome Extension”, and install it.

If this is your first time connecting with MetaMask you should be asked immediately if you would like to add the Binance Smart Chain network to your MetaMask, please do proceed with this step as it is very important that you make sure you are sending your BNB via the right network.

Then go to Binance and click on the “Wallet” tab at the top of the screen.

Click on “Withdraw”, then search for “BNB”. Paste your own wallet address where you see an option named recipient address to withdraw BNB; then on the transfer network, make sure you have selected Binance Smart Chain (BSC) or BEP20 (BSC).

Click submit and follow the verification steps afterward. After successfully withdrawing your BNB it should arrive very shortly in your Metamask wallet.

Now you’re ready to buy Zilla Shares!

Once Metmask is ready, head over to PancakeSwap, click “Connect Wallet” at the top and choose Metamask.

Now select Trade > Exchange on the left sidebar.

On the top field enter the amount of BNB you would like to exchange for $ZSHARE. You can go back and change this number anytime before proceeding with “Swap”.

Now click on the other field and choose Zilla Shares from the list. The corresponding amount of Zilla Shares should show up immediately. Verify and then proceed with “Swap”.

Now MetaMask should pop up and ask you if you want to allow PancakeSwap to spend your BNB tokens, click confirm. Wait for the confirmation popup until it shows “Transaction Submitted”.

You can see your Zilla Shares in your MetaMask Wallet. Congratulations! You have finally bought Zilla Shares ($ZSHARE)!
