Wallet Connect

Wallet Connect simplifies dApp connections. With your mobile wallet in hand, scan the website's QR code, and you're connected instantly.


Minswap offers two distinct modes for Wallet Connect:

Default Mode

TLDR: Default mode is widely supported by popular wallets like Eternl and Flint.

In Default mode, the account format is <namespace>:<network>:<stake_address_in_cbor>. However, it does not support network/account change events.

Custom Mode

TLDR: Custom mode is Minswap's unique approach, designed to enhance the user experience. Currently, it's supported by NuFi.

Custom mode uses the account format <namespace>:<network>:<stake_address_in_cbor>-<base_address_in_cbor>. It supports network/account change events.

Under custom mode, there are 2 modes have their advantages and trade-offs, which are summarized in the table below:

FieldDApp RPCWallet RPC


Fetches UTxOs using the base address (similar to nami)

Utilizes wallet UTxOs (includes support for locked and pending UTxOs)


Displays the balance of the base address only

Shows the balance from the wallet (aggregates balances across all addresses)


Enhances the user experience with faster responses

Responses are relatively slower and necessitate the wallet to be connected in the background whenever the dApp is in use

Submit Tx

Submits transactions through minswap's node

Submits transactions using the wallet's submit endpoint

DApp RPC mode was designed so that wallet need not be online all the time you access the DEX. When DEX request for a signature from wallet, mobile wallets should show push notification to sign the transaction.

User can toggle between DApp RPC and Wallet RPC modes upon selecting the dropdown where the address is displayed on the DEX as shown in image below.
