Frequently asked questions about Coinshift Apps and troubleshooting.


What are Coinshift Apps?

Coinshift Apps is a suite of tools and decentralised applications (dApps) integrated into the Coinshift interface. It is designed to simplify multi-signatory DeFi interactions with blockchain transactions. Previously, multi-signature DeFi transactions required users to understand complex hex data. Coinshift Apps transform this hex data into clear, human-readable sentences. This makes the transaction process clearer and helps users confidently sign their transactions.

How do I access dApps from my Coinshift dashboard?

Simply navigate to the Apps section on your Coinshift dashboard. Here, you'll find a list of all supported dApps. You can select the one you wish to interact with.

I'm having difficulty loading the dApps. What should I do?

Ensure your internet connection is stable. If the problem persists, try clearing your browser cache, restarting your browser, and log in to the app again. Contact our customer support if the issue remains unresolved.

Are transactions made on dApps through Coinshift as secure as using them directly?

Yes, transactions made on dApps via Coinshift are maintained with the same security measures as when using dApps directly. Coinshift employs robust encryption and security measures to ensure the safety and integrity of all transactions on its interface.

I can't see my dApp transaction history. What might be the issue?

Ensure you're logged in to the correct account (correct Metamask wallet, and correct Safe address). If you're still facing issues, contact Coinshift support.

I noticed that the transaction details are presented in a human-readable format on Coinshift when using any dApp. How can this feature aid in the transparency and clarity of our transaction records?

The human-readable format on Coinshift ensures that all transaction details are clear and easily understandable. This enhances transparency for all involved parties, especially when multiple Safe Signers are reviewing transactions. It ensures that there's no ambiguity in transaction details, aiding in error-free approvals and record-keeping.


I manage significant assets for my company. Is there a maximum limit for depositing into AAVE via Coinshift?

Coinshift does not have any deposit limits, but AAVE's protocol might have inherent limits based on liquidity or contract specifications. We recommend reviewing AAVE's documentation or reaching out to Coinshift's support team to inquire about large-scale transactions.

Are there any specific considerations or limitations when using Coinshift's multi-sig for AAVE transactions?

Using the multi-sig feature on Coinshift adds an extra layer of security for AAVE transactions. Ensure that all signatories are aware of the AAVE transaction's implications and are available to approve the transaction in a timely manner. Remember that multi-sig transactions might take longer to process due to the need for multiple approvals.

We're planning to borrow a particular asset on AAVE for operational expenses but want to maintain our exposure to ETH. How can this be achieved using Coinshift?

Using AAVE through Coinshift, you can deposit ETH as collateral and borrow other assets like USDC. This way, you maintain potential ETH gains while accessing liquidity for your operational expenses. Navigate to AAVE on Coinshift and follow the borrowing steps, ensuring ETH is set as your collateral.

CoW Swap

I'm concerned about price slippages during transactions, especially when all Signers might not be available at once. How does CoW Swap via Coinshift address this?

CoW Swap's limit order is specifically designed to address this concern. By setting a limit order, the transaction only executes at the user-specified price, ensuring no surprises due to price slippages. This is especially useful in a multi-sig process on Coinshift, where not all Signers might be available immediately.

I'm a treasury manager looking to hedge our company's exposure to ETH during its high volatility periods. Can I use CoW Swap on Coinshift to set a limit order to automatically swap ETH for a stablecoin when a certain price point is reached?

Absolutely! With CoW Swap's integration on Coinshift, you can set limit orders for such scenarios. Navigate to CoW Swap in the Coinshift Apps section, and use the Limit tab to specify the amount of ETH you want to swap and your desired price point for a stablecoin like USDC or DAI. Once the market reaches your set price, the swap will automatically execute, securing the desired stablecoin amount.

How does accessing CoW Swap on Coinshift ensure I get the best trade prices across various DEXs and AMMs?

CoW Swap functions as a decentralised exchange (DEX) aggregator on the Ethereum blockchain. When you initiate a trade via Coinshift's interface, CoW Swap leverages its aggregation capabilities, scanning multiple DEXs and Automated Market Makers. This ensures you receive the best possible trade price, optimising your returns and ensuring competitive rates.


Can I simultaneously manage multiple vesting plans with different tokens for varied team members using Hedgey on the Coinshift dashboard?

Yes, Hedgey on Coinshift allows you to manage multiple vesting plans. Each plan can have its own token type and allocation details.

If a vesting plan proposal is discarded on Coinshift after being set up via Hedgey, are there any effects or records on the blockchain?

Discarding a proposal on Coinshift means it hasn't been executed. While the proposal itself won't be recorded as an active transaction on the blockchain, any associated actions or gas fees from prior steps might still apply.

How can I assign varying lockup durations for different community members using Hedgey on Coinshift?

When setting up a time lock through Hedgey on Coinshift, you can specify unique unlock dates for each recipient, ensuring different lockup durations as needed.

We've had a change in our token management team. How do we transfer administrative rights of the vesting plans?

During the Vesting Plan setup, there's an option to set or change the Vesting admin address. This admin has authority over the vesting plan, including the power to stop it.


To optimise our operations, I need to execute cross-chain transactions but am wary of the potential fees. How does LI.FI on Coinshift helps in cost-effective cross-chain interactions.

LI.FI's integration with Coinshift ensures efficiency in cross-chain transactions. By determining the most cost-effective route for these transfers, LI.FI optimises the process. Additionally, the ability to bridge assets from one chain to another in a single transaction using LI.FI can lead to significant savings in time and associated gas fees.

I'm a treasury manager aiming to diversify our company's assets across several blockchains for risk mitigation. How can I leverage LI.FI on Coinshift to achieve this?

With LI.FI integrated on Coinshift, you can efficiently bridge assets across multiple blockchains. Navigate to the LI.FI application on the Coinshift dashboard, where you can initiate cross-chain transfers in a single transaction. This streamlines the process, allowing you to diversify your company's assets across different ecosystems easily.


My token swap on ParaSwap failed. How do I troubleshoot?

Check if you have enough balance and if you're meeting the minimum swap requirements. Ensure you have sufficient gas for the transaction.

After initiating a swap on ParaSwap via Coinshift, there's a delay in getting all Signer approvals. How can I ensure the transaction doesn't fail?

With Coinshift's multi-sig setup, there may be instances where not all Signers are immediately available. It's advised to execute the transaction within 5 minutes after the first approval. This minimises the risk of transaction failure due to potential price changes in the interim. Ensuring timely coordination among all Signers is crucial to avoid such issues.

Request Finance

After initiating an invoice payment, there's a change in plans, and I need to revoke or modify the payment. How flexible is the payment proposal system on Coinshift when using Request Finance, and are there any cost implications?

Request Finance on Coinshift offers flexibility in managing payment proposals. Post-creation, you can choose to discard a proposal if circumstances change. At the proposal stage, discarding doesn't attract any network fees. However, if a payment proposal progresses to an on-chain transaction and then is rejected by a Signer, this action is recorded on the blockchain and might incur associated gas fees.

In our organisation, certain payments require approval from multiple signatories for added security. How does the integration of Request Finance on Coinshift accommodate this multi-signature setup?

Request Finance's integration with Coinshift supports multi-signature approval processes. Once a payment proposal is created, it will remain pending until the required number of Safe Signers provide their approval. This ensures that no payment is processed without the consensus of authorised personnel, adding an extra layer of security and oversight to your transactions.

As a treasury manager handling multiple vendor payments, how can Request Finance on Coinshift streamline the process of consolidating and paying off several invoices?

With Request Finance on Coinshift, you're provided with a unified interface where you can view, select, and pay multiple invoices simultaneously. Instead of manually handling each invoice, you can consolidate them and, with a few clicks, initiate the payment process, thus saving time and ensuring timely settlements.


Which tokens are supported?

You can access tokens (listed here) on all networks where the Superfluid dApp is available. We aim to extend our support to more chains where Superfluid is operational in the near future. Keep an eye out for our forthcoming launches on different networks and Layer 2 solutions.

How to start and manage a stream from the Coinshift dashboard

Read our detailed guide on how you can set up and manage a payment stream.

Is it possible to define a start and end date for a stream?

At present, this functionality is not available. However, we will be introducing this feature in the near future.

How can recipients claim the funds they have received?

Recipients will obtain USDCx, which is a wrapped token. To convert USDCx back to USDC, users can employ the Superfluid dApp to initiate a transaction to unwrap the token.

  1. Visit the Superfluid dApp.

  2. Connect your preferred wallet (e.g., Metamask) containing your wrapped tokens.

  3. Navigate to the Wrap/Unwrap section -> Unwrap tab and enter the number of wrapped tokens you wish to unwrap.

  4. Confirm the process by clicking the Unwrap button and approving the Metamask transaction.

For detailed steps on unwrapping wrapped tokens, refer to this link (Unwrap Tokens tab).

Please note that automatic unwrapping will be supported in the future.

Transaction Builder

Do I need any technical expertise to use the Transaction Builder?

Yes, using the Transaction Builder requires technical expertise. Before initiating or editing any transaction, ensure you possess a sufficient understanding of the operations and potential implications to ensure accuracy and security. If unsure, it's best to seek guidance or consult with someone experienced.

My custom transaction isn't getting broadcasted. What could be the reason?

Ensure you've set the right parameters and have enough balance to cover the transaction and gas fees.

As a treasury manager, I'm looking to streamline interactions with multiple smart contracts for various DeFi operations. How can the Transaction Builder assist in consolidating these operations?

The Transaction Builder is designed to simplify your DeFi activities. It allows you to interact with and strategise various smart contracts in just a single transaction. This means you can consolidate multiple operations, ensuring efficient and cohesive management of your DeFi interactions.
