How To Get Started With DeFi Kingdoms


In this guide, I’ll walk you through how to get JEWEL tokens in DeFi Kingdoms so that you can start taking advantage of its gamified DeFi platform.

Covered In This DeFi Kingdoms Guide:

  • Getting ONE Tokens Onto MetaMask
  • Getting Started On DeFi Kingdoms
  • Trading For JEWEL Tokens

DeFi Kingdoms (JEWEL) is one of the hottest new blockchain games. It’s a unique solution to an overlooked problem: making DeFi farming fun for the average user. If you’re looking for an alternative to traditional DeFi liquidity pools, I’ll walk you through the steps to get onto DeFi Kingdoms.


Getting ONE Tokens Onto MetaMask

The first thing you’ll need to get on DeFi Kingdoms is some Harmony (ONE) tokens. The game is based on the Harmony blockchain, so ONE is the native transaction fee token for the platform.

To get some ONE, I’ll be using the KuCoin exchange, however, other exchanges that have native ONE tokens, such as Binance, should work great as well.

From the KuCoin trading page, I’ve bought some ONE tokens, as you can see below. If you’re new to KuCoin, click here to check out our guide on how to use the crypto exchange.

As a reminder, you don’t need to buy tokens on the KuCoin exchange; if you have ONE tokens already on another exchange, the withdrawal process should work relatively the same for you.

Once you’ve bought your ONE tokens, from the assets page on KuCoin, select “Transfer” under your main account tab and choose ONE tokens. Enter the amount of ONE you want to transfer from your trading account to your main account, then hit Confirm.


Now that your ONE tokens are sitting in your main account, it’s time to withdraw them to MetaMask.

You’ll need a MetaMask crypto wallet that’s connected to the Harmony mainnet network in order to load ONE tokens onto your MetaMask natively. Thankfully, Harmony has provided a clear guide here on how to easily add the Harmony mainnet to your MetaMask, so check that out first before continuing forward.

Now that you’ve connected your MetaMask to Harmony, open your MetaMask browser tab and copy the address at the top of your digital wallet.

TIP: As you can see, there is some dust ONE tokens sitting in the wallet already. It’s always a good idea to keep a small amount of the native asset in your wallet to use for transaction fees on various DeFi platforms. Thankfully, Harmony offers extremely cheap fees, so you don’t need much to make a good amount of transactions.


This is an important next step: paste this MetaMask address into the Harmony blockchain explorer website here. As you can see, when I paste my wallet address, the explorer shows me the Harmony-native address that you have to use to load ONE onto MetaMask.


Copy that Harmony wallet address (not provided in this picture — your wallet address will be different) and then head back to KuCoin.

From the KuCoin assets page, select “Withdraw” and choose ONE. As you can see, I’ve entered my Harmony-native address, not my MetaMask address. Select ONE for the Network, and enter the amount of ONE you’ll be withdrawing.

KuCoin charges a single ONE token withdrawal fee, which you can check the price of here.

After that, hit “Confirm,” enter your security measures on KuCoin to withdraw the funds, and wait for a couple of minutes for the ONE tokens to appear in your MetaMask.


DeFi Kingdoms Guide: Getting Started

Now that you’ve got ONE on MetaMask, head to the home page of DeFi Kingdoms here.

DeFi Kingdoms Guide: Trading for JEWEL Tokens

Once you’ve gotten yourself familiar, you’ll need to get some JEWEL tokens to interact with the in-game ecosystem. The whole game runs on JEWEL; whether that’s for farming rewards in liquidity pools, summoning, or going on quests, JEWEL fuels it all.

To buy some JEWEL, head to the Marketplace at the center of the map. This is what it should look like.


The marketplace has a few different uses, but for getting started, click on the trader on the left to open DeFi Kingdoms’ in-game decentralized exchange (DEX).

We’ll be swapping From ONE To JEWEL, so select the tokens and input the amount of ONE you’d like to swap. If you’re interested in the current JEWEL price, click here. Then, click “Swap” and confirm the transaction, and you’re done!

You’ve now successfully joined the DeFi Kingdoms ecosystem and can start using the game’s various DeFi protocols to maximize your yields on your crypto. The game offers liquidity pools, JEWEL staking, quests, and more, so be sure to check out our overview of DeFi Kingdoms to get started today!
