New to the world of Cryptocurrency? If you don't already have a digital wallet or you're not sure how to purchase funds then the following guides may be helpful.
The recommended way to participate is to send Ethereum to theAffiliateCoin wallet. To do this, you'll first need an Ethereum wallet of your own. If you already have one please see the next section for a guide on how to buy Ethereum, or the section that follows on how to invest in AffiliateCoin.
If you need a new Ethereum wallet, we recommend using one of the following:
We will use MyEtherWallet in this guide, although any of these will work.
Step 1 – Sign up to MyEtherWallet
Visit myetherwallet.com, where you will be presented with a form for creating your new wallet.
Type a password to continue. You'll use this to access your wallet in the future, so ensure it is secure and keep a copy backed up in a safe place – ideally offline. Click Create New Wallet.
Step 2 – Save your keystore file
Click the Download Keystore File button to save the file on your computer. This will be used in conjunction with your password to access the wallet, so we recommend storing a copy on a USB stick or a similar offline storage device. ClickIunderstand. Continue.
Step 3 – Save your private key
You are now presented with your private key. This can be used to access your wallet without the accompanying password or keystore file. It goes without saying that it is of the utmost importance that you keep this in a safe place. There is no process for recovering a lost or stolen private key. We recommend using the Print Paper Wallet feature to keep an offline copy of all this information. Click Save Your Address to continue.
Step 4 – Unlock your new wallet
Your Ethereum wallet has now been created, but you need to unlock it in order to view the contents. There are several ways to unlock the wallet, some more secure than others. For the purpose of this guide we will unlock the wallet with the private key obtained in Step 3, but we recommend using something like MetaMask to access the wallet in future.
Select Private Key and input your unique key into the text field, as demonstrated in the image below. Click Unlock to continue.
You should now see some general information about your new Ethereum wallet. Any time you want to check your wallet, just visit myetherwallet.com and click theView Wallet Info link in the main navigation. We recommend bookmarking this URL to help protect yourself against phishing scams.
During the ICO we will be accepting all currencies but Ethereum is preferred. You can purchase Ethereum from many places but we recommend Coinbase, the current most popular way to buy Ethereum. If you already have Ethereum please see the next section for a guide on how to invest in AffiliateCoin.
Step 1 – Sign up to Coinbase
Visit coinbase.com/signup, where you will be presented with the following form. Once your account has been created please confirm your email to complete the registration.
Step 2 – Purchase Ethereum
Navigate toAccounts and selectETH Wallet. Click Buy Ethereum to start your purchase.
Step 3 – Add a payment method
If you are depositing small amounts (less than $500 USD) then select Credit/Debit Card. If you are looking to deposit larger amounts then selectBank Account.
Depending on your payment method it may require you to complete KYC (Know Your Customer) by providing photo ID. Please follow the on screen instructions to complete this process. This may require you to upload documents and can take several hours to complete in some circumstances. Please contact Coinbase if you have any questions regarding your Coinbase account.
Step 4 – Transfer Ethereum to your MyEtherWallet
DO NOT SEND ETHEREUM FROM COINBASE DIRECTLY TO THE AFFILIATECOIN WALLET
Unfortunately, we cannot accept deposits from Coinbase or other cryptocurrency exchanges, so we ask that you transfer the Ethereum to your standalone wallet before depositing any funds to AffiliateCoin.
To do this, navigate to Accountsand click the Send button next to your ETH Wallet.
Enter the address of your Ethereum wallet into the Recipient field and the amount you wish to send in the amount field. When you are happy press Continue and your transfer will begin. Depending on how busy the network is it can take up to a few minutes for the transaction to complete.
Yyou have now purchased Ethereum and moved it to your wallet, which you should now login to verify everything is as expected.
By now you should have an Ethereum wallet containing the amount you wish to invest. If so, you are ready to participate. If you still need to create a digital wallet or purchase funds, see one of the above sections to get started.
Step 1 – Transfer Ethereum to AffiliateCoin
Login to your Ethereum wallet and setup a transfer to the AffiliateCoin wallet. If you have been following this guide then you can use your wallet on myetherwallet.com from earlier. Navigate to Send Ether & Tokens and you will be presented with the the following form:
Set Gas Limit 22511 (minimum)
Note that the AffiliateCoin wallet address will be made available when theReservation Sale begins on the 12th February at 19:00 GMT. You will need to input this into theTo Address field above. Enter the amount you wish to invest in the ') }}Amount to Send field. When you're happy, click Generate Transaction followed bySend Transaction to begin the transfer.
Step 2 – Add your wallet to your AffiliateCoin account
To help us identify you as an investor, and for smooth distribution of your AFLC tokens, please ensure you tell us about the Ethereum wallet you transferred from. For those using MyEtherWallet you can find your wallet address on any of the pages on their site once you are logged in.
Login to your AffiliateCoin account and navigate to Edit > Deposits then enter your Wallet Address in the Ethereum Deposit Wallet Address Field. If you are making multiple payments from different wallets you can press Add another item and enter your second wallet address here.
