GETTING SETUP IS EASY
Follow the simple steps below and rest assured that your HOTCOIN will be safe, secure and ready to spend at all times.
Install the MyEtherWallet Chrome Extension
The MyEtherWallet is the best multi-platform wallet we recommend for managing your HOTCOIN. If you decide to use a different wallet, we may not be able to help you if something goes wrong. Our team has tested MyEtherWallet extensively, to ensure a smooth transfer process.
Setting Up Your New Ethereum (ERC20) Wallet
After you successfully install the MyEthereumWallet extension, you will now see the extension’s icon in your browser bar. Click it to get started.
You will then see the popup window depicted in our screenshot. Click either of the “Add Wallet” links to move on to step 3.
Setting Up Your New Wallet Details
Before going any further, please note this important detail. When you create a MyEtherWallet account, you are simply generating a cryptographic set of numbers: your private key and your public key (address).
The handling of your keys happens entirely on your computer, inside your browser. So if you forget your password, there is simply no way for MyEtherWallet to retrieve it. In other words, you’re screwed.
To finish creating your wallet, start at “What would you like to do?”. Select, “Generate New Wallet”. Then enter in a “Nickname” and “Password” for your wallet. Again, make sure you write down and save this password. After doing so, click the blue “Create New Wallet” button to complete this step.
Your MyEtherWallet List
Now that you’ve completed the setup process for your new wallet, you will see it appear in your wallet list inside the extension’s popup window.
Click on “My Wallets” to move onto the next step.
Viewing Your New MyEtherWallet
Simply click on the gold colored “eye” icon to view the details page for your newly created wallet. You will be prompted to enter the wallets password, before moving to the details page. Please do so and proceed.
Adding HTC as a Custom Token
Before you are able to receive our new ETH based HTC tokens to your wallet, you must add it as a custom token.
Skipping this step will result in you not being able to see your new HTC coins after they are transferred.
Simply, click the “Add Custom Token” button, located inside the “Token Balances” box.
HTC Custom Token Details
Be diligent with this part of the process. Adding improper details will create undesired results. Please enter the following details in the correlating input boxes.
Token Symbol: HTC
Then hit “Save“.
Using Your New ETH Wallet
Phew. Ok, you’re ready to start sending and receiving HOTCOIN. Simply copy your public wallet address and you’re good to go.
