    How to Access the Decentralized Web with Wallet Connect and Trust Wallet on your iPhone

    Although Trust Wallet users using an iPhone smartphone don’t have an in-app DApp browser, they can still be able to access the decentralized web using WalletConnect.

    Below, we will provide a step-by-step guide on how to access the decentralized web with WalletConnect and Trust Wallet on your iPhone.

    To do this, we will use PancakeSwap as an example to make a trade. But before we get into the step-by-step guide, what exactly is PancakeSwap?

    PancakeSwap is a decentralized platform that allows users to trade, earn and win cryptocurrencies. Additionally, PancakeSwap is a good example as it’s one of the decentralized platforms that’s accessible on Safari — a web browser primarily made to run on Apple devices.

    To begin with, you will need your Trust Wallet app as well as another device that you will use to access the PancakeSwap website. While you can use a mobile device, a desktop browser is preferable. However, you can still use WalletConnect Mobile Linking on your mobile device to access a DApp.

    Step 1: Access the Website

    Open your browser on your phone and go to https://pancakeswap.finance. You will be taken to the official website of PancakeSwap. Remember to always visit the official websites of your DApps only.

    Step 2: Connect Trust Wallet

    The next step is to click on ‘Connect Wallet’ at the top right-hand corner of your browser and then proceed to choose the ‘WalletConnect’ option.

    Wallet options will be shown on your screen after clicking on WalletConnect, click on Trust Wallet as shown below.

    Step 3: Click on the Wallet Connect

    Click to link your wallet to the DApp. The PancakeSwap site will show you are connected via browser. This means that you are now connected and ready to transact.

    Step 4: Make a Transaction

    You can now proceed and create a transaction by, for example, exchanging BNB to TWT tokens. Tap on ‘Trade’ on the left-hand pane and then choose ‘Exchange’. You can also choose to search and import TWT tokens if they don’t appear on your list. Then, proceed to indicate the number of tokens that you wish to get and click on ‘Swap’.

    Step 5: Approve the Transaction

    To proceed with the exchange, you will need to approve the transaction. Your Trust Wallet app will automatically register the confirmation request and provide a detailed breakdown of the exchange. To approve the transaction, tap on ‘Confirm’.

    Your transaction will automatically be submitted to the Binance Smart Chain network and once approved on the blockchain network, you will receive the tokens in your Trust Wallet. You can then proceed to confirm that the tokens received are what you exchanged.

    Remember, Trust Wallet will keep your session active so that you don’t have to reconnect. However, when starting a new session, you will have to restart the app and refresh your browser.
