How to Use Jupiter's DEX Aggregator to Your Advantage

Desktop Guide

Jupiter is Solana's premier DEX aggregator. It scours every trading pair available across various decentralized exchanges (DEXes) and routes your trade in a way to maximize how much you receive.

Sometimes, trading USDC -> USDT -> SOL will return you more SOL than just trading USDT -> SOL.

Jupiter will find whatever trade route maximizes your return and execute accordingly.

Step 1

  • Click Connect Wallet in the top right corner and then click Solflare.

Step 2

  • You’ll be automatically taken to the Explore page. Click Manage on the top right.

  • Click on Jupiter Swap on the left side of the screen.

Step 3

On the right side of the screen, you can toggle between which assets you want to trade. Currently, there is only USDC in this wallet and there is $3 of buying power. This trade is 1 USDC for the equivalent amount of SOL. You can adjust slippage in the right hand panel as well.

  • Once you've input the details of your trade, click Setup.

  • Approve the transaction.

  • Click Swap USDC to SOL.

  • Approve the transaction.

That's it

You'll see your positions updated at the bottom of the screen.
