Obtain LP-Token
To participate in the Farm to obtain liquidity mining income, please provide liquidity for the specified trading pair in HurricaneSwap and obtain the corresponding LP-Token.
You can click “Get HCT-*LP” to jump to the Add Liquidity page of the relevant Token.

After adding liquidity, you can get the corresponding amount of LP Token. Then return to the Farm page and stake your LP Token to get rewards.

To stake your LP Token for the first time, please allow the contract call first, click “Enable”, and confirm on the pop-up wallet page.

On the staking page, you can see the details about the staking LPs.
Enter the amount you want to stake, click “Confirm” to confirm the transaction to complete.

After staking, you can view your staking and income on the Farm page.
