You can buy $HEC on on Fantom Opera network.

Set up a Wallet and a network

Setting up a Wallet

First, you need to be sure that you have a Fantom Opera compatible wallet.
If you don’t have either, one of the options compatible with both networks would be Metamask wallet. The instructions below will guide you through the Metamask wallet installation:

  1. Install Metamask wallet:


• Install Google Chrome, Firefox or Opera browser extension for your Desktop browser

2. Authorize your Metamask wallet:

a. Select “Create a Wallet.

b. Create a username and password

c. Pay close attention to your uniquely assigned Secret Recovery Phrase, and store it somewhere safe. If you lose this series of words or forget what order they’re in, you will lose access to your wallet and it will be unrecoverable. We recommend writing the phrase on a piece of paper and storing it in a memorable, safe, and secure spot.

d. Confirm the phrase by placing all of the words in the correct order as they were assigned.

e. MetaMask is successfully set up and you get your wallet address
For example — 0xa2b5FFB688A234B5082E41ff5fB9e41d67F5744A

f. Proceed with setting up your network:

Add Fantom Opera network to Metamask wallet

  1. Select network: Custom RPC
  2. In the newly opened window enter the following data:

How to buy #HEC on

  1. A purchase of token on a DEX is performed through an operation called swap. You must have tokens to perform a swap
  2. Go to
  3. Push connect
  4. Approve connection in your wallet (enter wallet password if prompted)
  5. Approve the switch to the relevant network in the wallet if prompted
  6. Check if the chosen network is the one on which you want to perform the swap, otherwise choose the correct network and approve the network change in the wallet
  7. Choose the input token (the one with which you will pay)
  8. Choose $HEC as the output token
  9. Click SWAP

Note: in order to perform any transaction on Fantom Opera network, you will need to pay so-called gas fees, which are paid with native tokens ($FTM on Fantom Opera). At the moment of writing these fees are minor in value, often under USD 0.05 in equivalent, but there must be some to cover these fees. If you have none, there are several way to get some, which are:

  • Check if Yoshi.exhcange has enabled on the ramp fiat integration to buy tokens by banking card by the time you are reading this
  • Buy some on CEX (Centralized exchange). The most popular are and (note that national restrictions may apply for citizens of certain countries, always check with ToS of each CEX)
  • To get minor amounts for a new wallet you can use a so-called faucet. At the time of writing multiple $FTM faucets are available on the web, but make sure you are using a legit one
  • Ask your friends. It’s very likely that you know someone who can lend you a required amount of $FTM
