Introduction: Overview of Selling Crypto from Trust Wallet

First off, let‘s do a quick rundown of Trust Wallet itself. Trust Wallet is a popular non-custodial wallet app for storing cryptocurrencies. The key feature is that only you control the private keys to your assets, not any third party.

This gives you independence, but also means you can‘t directly convert crypto to fiat money within Trust Wallet. However, there are still several great options for selling tokens from your wallet:

  • Decentralized exchanges (DEXs): Swap tokens for other coins on DEXs like PancakeSwap or Uniswap.

  • Built-in swapping: Directly trade certain tokens within the Trust Wallet interface.

  • Withdraw to centralized exchange: Send crypto to an exchange like Binance to cash out.

The best choice depends on the specific currency you want to sell, as we‘ll explore in detail below. But first, let‘s look at some key benefits and limitations of Trust Wallet when it comes to selling crypto assets.

Benefits of Selling Crypto from Trust Wallet

  • Non-custodial – you maintain full control of private keys
  • Easy onboarding – no KYC process required
  • Support for many assets and networks like BSC and Ethereum
  • Access to fast, inexpensive swaps on DEXs
  • Simple interface for exchanging tokens

Limitations of Selling Crypto from Trust Wallet

  • No fiat off-ramps – can‘t directly cash out to bank account
  • Limited built-in swap capabilities compared to DEXs
  • Must pay Ethereum gas fees for swaps on DEXs like Uniswap
  • Requires using centralized exchange to fully cash out to fiat

Now that you know the lay of the land, let‘s dive into the step-by-step methods for selling cryptocurrencies from your Trust Wallet app!

Method 1: Use a Decentralized Exchange (DEX)

The most flexible way to swap your crypto assets held in Trust Wallet is through a decentralized exchange like PancakeSwap or Uniswap.

DEXs allow you to trade tokens directly from your wallet in a permissionless manner, without having to deposit funds on a centralized platform. Transactions occur through smart contracts on the blockchain.

Here are some pros of using a DEX to sell tokens from Trust Wallet:

  • Access to abundant liquidity pools for swapping tokens
  • Very fast trade settlement, within seconds
  • Lower fees compared to centralized exchanges
  • Greater transparency about pricing and fees

There are also some downsides to watch out for:

  • Complex interface if new to DeFi
  • Smart contract risks and potential bugs
  • Price slippage on large trades

Despite the disadvantages, DEXs still offer the best experience for exchanging most tokens from Trust Wallet. Let‘s go through the steps for using PancakeSwap, a top DEX on Binance Smart Chain (BSC).

Step 1: Connect Trust Wallet to PancakeSwap

The first step is linking your Trust Wallet app to PancakeSwap:

  1. Open the PancakeSwap website on your phone‘s browser or through the in-app browser in Trust Wallet.

  2. Tap "Connect" in the top right corner, then select "TrustWallet" from the list.

  3. A confirmation prompt will pop up in your Trust Wallet app – tap "Connect" to approve linking.

Your wallet is now connected to PancakeSwap!

Note: iOS users have to enable the in-app browser in Trust Wallet first.

Step 2: Select Trading Pair and Swap Tokens

Next, you can pick the trading pair you want to swap:

  1. Go to the "Swap" page on PancakeSwap.

  2. Tap "Select a currency" and choose the token you want to sell.

  3. Tap "Select a currency" again and pick the currency you want to exchange into. For example, BNB.

  4. Enter the amount of tokens you want to swap. It will show the estimated value in the currency you are receiving.

  5. Check the details look correct, then tap "Swap" to complete the exchange.

That‘s it – you‘ve now swapped one token for another directly through PancakeSwap! The exchanged currency will show in your Trust Wallet app shortly.

Watch out for the trading fee charged by PancakeSwap. Also keep "Slippage Tolerance" in mind if swapping large amounts.

You can swap any BEP-20 token on Binance Smart Chain using this method. For Ethereum-based tokens, you can use Uniswap in the same way.

Method 2: Use Built-In Swap in Trust Wallet

The developers of Trust Wallet have also built an in-app swapping function directly into the wallet interface. This allows convenient swaps without leaving the app.

However, there is more limited coin support compared to DEXs like PancakeSwap. The built-in swap feature is best suited for exchanging between BEP-20 tokens issued on BSC.

Here are the steps to use the built-in swap tool:

Step 1: Select "Swap" in Trust Wallet

From the main Trust Wallet screen, tap on the "Swap" button.

Step 2: Choose Tokens and Review Details

  • Tap on "Select token" and choose the currency you want to swap from.

  • Tap "Exchange for" and select the token you want to exchange into.

  • Enter the amount you want to swap. The estimated value in the receiving token will display.

  • Carefully review the swap details and check for fees.

  • When ready, tap "Swap" to perform the exchange.

The swapped tokens will show in your wallet once the transaction is processed on BSC.

While not as robust as a DEX, the built-in swap feature provides a quick and easy way to exchange BSC-based tokens without leaving Trust Wallet.

Method 3: Withdraw Tokens to a Centralized Exchange

The third option for selling cryptocurrency from Trust Wallet is to transfer coins to a centralized exchange like Binance or Coinbase. You can then trade into fiat currency and withdraw to your bank account.

Centralized exchanges provide more payment methods, but are custodial platforms where you give up full control of your private keys when depositing assets.

Here is the general process for cashing out through a centralized exchange:

Step 1: Set Up an Exchange Account

If you don‘t already have an account on Binance, Coinbase, or another large exchange, go ahead and sign up. Make sure to complete identity verification (KYC).

Step 2: Swap Coins to BNB (for Binance)

In Trust Wallet, use PancakeSwap to exchange the tokens you want to sell into BNB. This makes it easy to transfer to Binance later.

Step 3: Copy Deposit Address on Exchange

In your Binance account, navigate to your BNB wallet and copy the BNB deposit address.

Step 4: Withdraw BNB from Trust Wallet

  • In Trust Wallet, tap on BNB and select "Send".

  • Paste the Binance BNB address you copied and enter the amount to withdraw.

  • Carefully check all transaction details before tapping "Send" to complete the withdrawal.

Step 5: Sell BNB for Fiat and Withdraw Funds

Once your BNB shows up in your Binance wallet, head to the trading page and swap your BNB to USDT or BUSD stablecoins.

Then convert to fiat currency like USD or EUR and withdraw your profits to your connected bank account!

This allows you to fully cash out your Trust Wallet crypto holdings. Just be aware of trading fees and withdrawal fees charged by the exchange.

Choosing the Right Method to Sell Crypto from Trust Wallet

With three main options – DEXs, built-in swaps, and centralized exchanges – how do you choose the right approach for selling your coins and tokens? Here are some tips:

  • For BEP-20 tokens on BSC, PancakeSwap offers the best experience.

  • Use Uniswap for swapping ERC-20 tokens on Ethereum.

  • Try the built-in swap for quick exchanges between BSC tokens.

  • Withdraw to an exchange like Binance if you want to cash out to fiat.

You can also combine methods. For example, swap tokens to BNB on PancakeSwap first before transferring BNB to Binance to sell.

The table below summarizes the key differences between each selling method:

Method Coins Supported Speed Fees Cashing Out
Decentralized Exchange Many coins Fast Low Swap only
Built-in Swap Limited Fast Low Swap only
Centralized Exchange Many coins Moderate Higher Fiat off-ramp

This comparison can help guide your choice based on the cryptocurrency you want to sell and your end goal.

Protecting Yourself When Selling Crypto from Trust Wallet

While the methods above are safe when done properly, you should take precautions to avoid losing funds when selling cryptocurrencies:

  • Double check wallet addresses when sending transactions or connecting to platforms. Make sure they match exactly or you could lose money!

  • Watch out for fake websites or apps disguising themselves as legitimate platforms. Only use official URLs and download apps from proper stores.

  • Stick to large, reputable exchanges if cashing out through a centralized platform. Avoid new or unverified exchanges.

  • Set up two-factor authentication (2FA) wherever possible to secure your accounts from unauthorized access.

  • Never share wallet seed phrases or private keys – platforms don‘t need these and sharing them could compromise your funds!

As long as you take security seriously, you can confidently use Trust Wallet and connected services to sell and swap your crypto holdings.


Selling cryptocurrency from your Trust Wallet app is straightforward once you know the different options:

  • For swapping tokens, use DEXs like PancakeSwap or the built-in exchange.

  • To fully cash out, send coins to a centralized platform like Binance or Coinbase.

Carefully manage fees and take security precautions for smooth selling.
