Get Started

Buying EMERALD and creating nodes is extremely simple. We handle all of the complexities of setting up validators on the Avalanche network for you. All you have to do is follow the steps below to start claiming rewards.
  • Step 1:
    Purchase $AVAX, the Avalanche network’s native token. The most common way to do this is via a centralized exchange such as Coinbase, KuCoin, or crypto.com.
  • Step 2:
    Move your $AVAX to a WalletConnect-compatible wallet (including MetaMask).
  • Step 3:
    Using Trader Joe, swap your AVAX tokens for Emerald!
    Once you’ve connected your wallet to the homepage, elect to swap from $AVAX, to $EM.
    The Emerald token ($EM) will not be on the list, you must manually paste the contract into the “To” section.

    Note: $EM is now on Trader Joe instead of Pangolin. We have switched exchanges per community request.
  • Step 4:
    Visit our Nodes AppNodes App and connect your wallet.
    Then click “Create Your Node” to set up an Emerald Node. You will have to read and sign the terms and conditions.
