So you‘ve invested in SafeMoon V2, the popular deflationary cryptocurrency on Binance Smart Chain. Now you want to sell some or all of your tokens for cash. Great! Selling SFM is totally doable for beginners with the right guidance.

In this detailed guide, I‘ll explain how to safely and easily convert your SafeMoon V2 tokens to fiat currency in 3 simple steps:

  1. Swap SFM to BNB on PancakeSwap
  2. Withdraw BNB from your wallet to an exchange
  3. Sell BNB for fiat money like USD or EUR

By the end, you‘ll have the knowledge to effortlessly cash out your SFM investment. Let‘s get started!

A Brief History of SafeMoon

First, some background. SafeMoon launched in March 2021 as a deflationary token on Binance Smart Chain. Its key features included:

  • Tokenomics – A 10% fee on all SFM transactions, with 5% rewarded to holders and 5% added to PancakeSwap liquidity pools. This encourages holding and penalizes selling.

  • Deflationary supply – The total supply decreases over time as tokens are burned through transactions. This aims to increase scarcity and value.

  • Reflections – Holders earn a portion of fees as passive income. At launch, the reflection rate was over 70% APY!

SafeMoon saw incredible growth in the 2021 bull market, reaching a peak market cap of $5.5 billion in May 2021. However, critics argued SafeMoon operated like a Ponzi scheme and manipulated its users.

In 2022, SafeMoon launched an upgraded V2 token through a migration process. V2 aimed to fix issues like high gas fees and lack of exchange listings.

Let‘s compare some key stats between V1 and V2:

Statistic SafeMoon V1 SafeMoon V2
Launch Date March 8, 2021 September 28, 2022
All-time high price $0.00001399 $0.0004162
Market cap $5.5 billion $207 million

As you can see, V2 has a much lower supply and market cap compared to V1 at its peak. But the project aims to rebuild over time.

Now let‘s get into the step-by-step guide for selling your SFM V2!

Step 1 – Swap SFM to BNB on PancakeSwap

PancakeSwap is the top decentralized exchange (DEX) on Binance Smart Chain. It lets you easily swap BEP-20 tokens like SFM with minimal fees.

Here‘s how to use PancakeSwap to swap your SFM for BNB:

  1. Visit and connect your BSC-compatible wallet by clicking "Connect" in the top right. You can use Trust Wallet, MetaMask, SafePal, etc.

  2. Click "Select a Token" and paste the SFM V2 contract address: 0x42981d0bfbAf196529376EE702F2a9Eb9092fcB5

  3. In the "To" section, select BNB as the output token.

  4. Enter the amount of SFM you want to swap or click "Max" to swap your entire balance.

  5. Set the slippage tolerance to 12% or higher. This accounts for price fluctuations.

  6. Click "Swap" and confirm the transaction in your connected wallet.

  7. Wait a few minutes for the swap to complete. You will then see BNB in your wallet instead of SFM.

Let‘s break this down in more detail:

  • PancakeSwap uses an automated market maker (AMM) model. Liquidity providers add funds to pools which users can trade against.

  • Slippage tolerance prevents failed transactions due to price movements. I recommend 12%+ for SFM.

  • You need a tiny amount of BNB for gas fees when swapping on PancakeSwap. Make sure you have a couple dollars worth.

  • Give the swap some time to complete, especially during high trading volumes. Check your wallet balance later.

And that‘s it! By following these steps, you have successfully swapped your SFM tokens for BNB. Now it‘s time to move the BNB to an exchange to sell.

Step 2 – Withdraw BNB from Wallet to Exchange

Cryptocurrency exchanges like Binance allow you to sell BNB for fiat currency like USD or EUR.

First you need to withdraw your BNB from your wallet to your exchange account:

  1. Sign up for a Binance account and complete identity verification (KYC).

  2. In your Binance account, find your BNB wallet and copy the deposit address on the BEP-20 network.

  3. In your wallet, click "Send" or "Withdraw" under your BNB balance.

  4. Paste the BNB address you copied from Binance into the "Recipient Address" field.

  5. Enter the amount of BNB to withdraw and send the transaction.

  6. Wait 30-60 minutes for the BNB deposit to arrive in your Binance account.

A few notes on moving crypto from a wallet to an exchange:

  • Make absolutely sure the network and wallet address matches. Sending BNB on the wrong network will result in lost funds.

  • Start by sending a small test transaction first before moving your whole balance.

  • Binance has free BNB withdrawals but charges a 0.1% trading fee.

  • Give the transfer some time to arrive before contacting support. Expect 30-60 minutes.

Once your BNB shows up in Binance, you‘re ready for the final step – selling for cash!

Step 3 – Sell BNB for Fiat on Binance

The last step is exchanging your BNB for fiat currency in order to cash out your investment.

Here is how to sell BNB on Binance:

  1. Go to the "Trade" page and select the BNB/USD or BNB/EUR trading pair.

  2. Enter the amount of BNB you want to sell, and click "Market" to execute at the current market price.

  3. You can also use a limit order to sell at a specific price instead.

  4. After the sale completes, you will have USD or EUR in your Binance account balance.

  5. Withdraw the fiat funds to your connected bank account. Note withdrawals have a 1-5 day processing time.

And that‘s it – you have officially cashed out your SFM investment into fiat!

Some final tips for selling BNB on Binance:

  • Check the current price action first. Consider setting limit sell orders instead of market orders.

  • Withdraw a small fiat test transaction first before withdrawing large amounts.

  • Be aware Binance has withdrawal limits unless you verify to higher levels.

  • Factor in the 0.1% trading fee Binance charges per trade.

Other Selling Options

There are a few other ways to convert SFM to fiat beyond PancakeSwap and Binance:

  • P2P trading – Platforms like LocalCryptos let you sell SFM directly to other users for cash.

  • Decentralized Exchanges – Uniswap, SushiSwap, TraderJoe offer SFM/USDT trading pairs without KYC.

  • Crypto ATMs – Some Bitcoin ATMs also support selling SFM for cash instantly.

  • Crypto debit cards – Cards like Visa allow you to spend crypto balances like SFM anywhere.

Ultimately, PancakeSwap and Binance will provide the most liquidity for selling large SFM holdings. But explore all your options!


And there you have it! A complete 3-step guide to converting your SafeMoon V2 tokens into fiat currency.

The process involves swapping SFM to BNB on PancakeSwap, withdrawing BNB to an exchange like Binance, and finally – selling the BNB for USD, EUR, or other government currencies.

While it may seem complicated at first, just follow the instructions carefully and take it step-by-step. Before you know it, you‘ll have cashed out your SFM investment like a pro!

Of course, always do your own research before trading and manage your risks. But I hope this guide gave you the knowledge needed to easily sell SafeMoon V2 and succeed in the world of crypto!
