The best way to purchase ETH is via Coinbase or a similar digital asset broker. Seeds isn't affiliated with Coinbase, but despite some bugginess, we've found them to be the easiest platform to use if you're in one of the 33 countries in which they work. If you're just signing up, you can use this code to receive $10 worth of Bitcoin on Coinbase when you buy or sell $100 worth of digital currency or more, and if you use the code, we'll receive that too, so thank you! :D
Now that you have some ETH, buying SEEDS is easy. You’ll need to send us ETH at the address given here to cover the cost of the amount of SEEDS you’d like to buy. Go to your wallet, click on the ‘Send’ button, paste our address, confirm your password, and you’re done!
After your transaction is confirmed you'll see you deposit balance updated. When your balance is positive, you can click on 'BUY SEEDS' to confirm your purchase! You will then receive a confirmation email with intructions on how to retrieve your purchased Seeds Tokens.
Unfortunately, we don’t currently accept payments in Bitcoin. In order to buy SEEDS, you need to convert your BTC to ETH first, and then use those to buy SEEDS. If you feel strongly that we should be supporting payments in BTC as well, please let us know at email@example.com. We want to do everything we can to make our community happy.
ETH Classic is different from ETH. After Etherum's hard fork due to the DAO Attack back in June 2016, some people decided to stick with the original chain and call it "Ethereum Classic." Thus, ETH Classic is a different coin with a different blockchain. Unfortunately, we don’t accept ETH Classic.
After you have made your puchase and your transaction has been confirmed, you will be able to retrieve your tokens here. You will need to provide us with a token compatible wallet address. Coinbase, GDAX and/or Kraken wallets DON'T allow you to receive custom tokens like SEEDS, so you’ll need to create a wallet that does, using a tool like MyEtherWallet. Though there was recently a fork in MyEtherWallet's code, and apparently a co-founder break-up that led to the formation of MyCrypto, to our knowledge, MyEtherWallet is still among the most user-friendly and secure wallets out there for storing ERC-20 tokens like SEEDS, though we'll continue to pay close attention to this situation and amend this statement promptly if and when there is any evidence that this has changed. Additionally, you can find a list of token compatible wallets here.
It may take a few hours (or even a few days) for your Seeds Tokens to hit your wallet. And once the tokens have hit, they may still not be immediately visible, because while most wallets are able to receive, send, and store ETH, they don’t have the functionality to see incoming transactions of custom tokens like SEEDS.
In that case, in order to see your incoming Seeds tokens, you’ll have to ‘watch’ them. Login to your MyEtherWallet* address and click on ‘Add Custom Token.’ Enter the following information:
Now, you should be able to see your Seeds tokens in your wallet!
*If it’s been more than a few days and they still aren’t there, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org, and we’ll do whatever we can to help.
Thank you so much!
Now that you have your tokens, there are a couple things you can do with them. For one, you can make a Request for Help, which means that you ask our system for anything that you need - so long as it's legal. :) The alpha version of our Needs Request portal is here, but this is a very basic version, and we'd love your feedback regarding how to make it great! Additionally, our plan is to make Seeds available through platforms that support utility tokens. We're working to make this happen in Q1 of 2018, though it will be in the best interest of the community for us to do so at the best possible strategic time. Which is to say, only after we've sufficiently demonstrated the power of the community and the Seeds system to effectively grant Requests for Help, and therefore proving out our token's utility.
A Needs Request, or a Request for Help, happens when you redeem a token and share your need with our system. We want you to have access to all of the resourcing and support you may need to feel taken care of, and to thrive. A Needs Request could be for any number of things - educational needs, business ambitions, medical help, and creative projects are just a few of the possibilities. We want to encourage you to dream big. If you could ask for anything in the world, what would it be? :)
