PancakeSwap is the hottest decentralized exchange (DEX) for swapping BEP-20 tokens. Before you can get your hands dirty with PancakeSwap, you first need to connect your cryptocurrency wallet which supports BNB Smart Chain (BSC). Trust Wallet is one of the safest and most popular wallets that allow you to trade, receive, and store cryptocurrencies via their mobile app. In this article, we’ll take a look at how you can enable your PancakeSwap Trust Wallet in just a few clicks!
How to Connect Trust Wallet to PancakeSwap on a PC
Connecting your Trust Wallet to PancakeSwap on a PC is a little less straightforward than it might seem. If you try to connect directly to Trust Wallet via the desktop version of PancakeSwap, you’ll see an error message (we’ll cover that later). In order to avoid this error and get your Trust Wallet connected successfully, you’ll need to follow the steps below:
Please note that you’ll still need to use the Trust Wallet app even though you’re connecting via a PC, so make sure to have your phone handy when you start this process!
- Go to the PancakeSwap website and click the ‘Connect Wallet’ button in the upper-right corner.
- A pop-up showing you some different wallets will appear, click on the ‘more’ button.
- Choose WalletConnect from the list of options. Remember that choosing Trust Wallet will lead you to an error!
- You’ll be directed to a QR code like the one below.
- You’ll need your phone for this next bit! On the Trust Wallet app, go to settings, then tap on ‘WalletConnect.’
- This will take you to a QR reader, just scan the code on PancakeSwap and you’ll be redirected to a page asking you to grant permission for PancakeSwap to connect to your wallet. Click ‘connect’ to approve this.
- You’ll know you’ve connected successfully when the QR code leaves the screen and the ‘Connect’ button that used to be in the upper-right hand corner is replaced by your wallet address.
How to Connect Trust Wallet in PancakeSwap on an iOS device
In 2021, Apple removed the DApp browser from the iOS version of Trust Wallet. This means users aren’t able to connect to PancakeSwap directly through the Trust Wallet app. Don’t worry though, you can still connect it, you just need to take a few extra steps to get everything connected successfully.
We’ll be using WalletConnect to get this done, so if you’ve previously connected your Trust Wallet to PancakeSwap via the PC, this will feel very familiar.
- Go to your Safari browser and access PancakeSwap’s webpage (you could also use Google Chrome if you prefer).
- In the upper-right hand corner, you’ll see ‘Connect.’ Tap on that to be directed to a menu of wallets. You’ll need to select WalletConnect not TrustWallet.
- WalletConnect will ask you to choose your preferred wallet. Here you should tap on Trust Wallet which will then launch the next step in the Trust Wallet app.
- You’ll see the WalletConnect page open in your TrustWallet app. Click ‘Connect’ at the bottom of the screen to allow PancakeSwap to connect to your wallet.
- Once you’ve clicked ‘Connect’ you’ll see a message letting you know that you can return to your browser. Go back to PanceSwap on your mobile web and you’ll see that the wallet has been connected!
How to Connect Trust Wallet in PancakeSwap on an Android device
Connecting your Trust Wallet to PancakeSwap using an Andriod device is a much simpler process than using an iOS device, so we’d recommend using this where possible if you want to access PancakeSwap via a mobile device.
- Open the Trust Wallet app on your device and tap on ‘DApps’ which you can see at the bottom of the screen.
- You should be able to see PancakeSwap under the DeFi section, or you can look for it using the search bar at the top.
- Tap on PancakeSwap. You’ll be directed to a page asking you to grant PancakeSwap access to your Wallet, simply tap the ‘connect’ button to continue.
- Once you see the PancakeSwap landing page, you should click on the connect button in the upper right corner.
- Choose Trust Wallet from the list of available wallets, you may need to click on the ‘more’ button on your device.
- That’s it, you’ve successfully connected your Trust Waller to PancakeSwap! You can check it worked as the ‘connect’ button will be replaced by a wallet symbol.
Can’t connect Trust Wallet to PancakeSwap?
So, your Trust Wallet is not connecting to PancakeSwap. This can be for many reasons, but most often it’ll be down to using the incorrect steps for your device type or not having the DApp browser enabled on your Trust Wallet.
There are very significant differences in the way you connect your Trust Wallet to a PC, android, or iOS device. Make sure to follow the steps to connect your Trust Wallet exactly to avoid errors.
If the issue lies with your DApps browser, you should be able to enable this on your android app. Keep in mind that iOS devices don’t have access to the DApps browser as of June 2021, so this won’t apply to users without an android device. Simply go to ‘Settings’ and tap on ‘Preferences.’ You should see an option to toggle DApps browser to ‘enabled’ allowing you to use it.
How to fix PancakeSwap “no provider was found” when connecting to Trust Wallet?
“No provider was found” is a common error on PancakeSwap and one that is easily fixed. You’ll get this error if you’re using PancakeSwap on a regular browser and not on the DApp browser on the Trust Wallet app.
How you fix it depends on the device you’re using. For android users, you should go to the TrustWallet app and connect through the DApp browser there. If you’re using a PC or an iOS device, the solution is to choose ‘WalletConnect’ instead of Trust Waller on the ‘Connect Wallet’ screen. This will allow you to connect Trust Wallet to PancakeSwap without using a DApp browser.
Basically, so long as you accurately follow the correct instructions for your device, you should easily be able to avoid this error.
