A Hybrid Store Of Value Asset On The Efficient Ethereum Blockchain

Frequently Asked Questions + Useful Information

What is BTC20?

BTC20 is a hybrid token. Representing two of the most popular crypto currencies, Bitcoin and Ethereum. Our token is a cross between the two. Aiming to be a store of value, that can be conveniently stored, quickly accessed & cheaply transacted across the globe. It will also be able to integrate with future dApps and projects being built on the Ethereum blockchain.

How do I buy the tokens?

You can buy tokens directly from the crowdsale contract on our homepage. The token sale will be live for two weeks in mid January. After that tokens will be available for trading on EtherDelta & IDEX first. We will then be applying for listing in many exchanges including Yobit, CoinExchange, Mercatox, Kucoin & more.

Where can I store my tokens?

BTC20 Tokens can be stored on any compatible Ethereum wallet. The most popular are MyEtherWallet, Mist, MetaMask, Ledger & Trezor. It is best to send your tokens to a personal wallet that you hold the private key for and not an exchange wallet address. This is because some exchanges don’t honor agreements relating to token transfers.

What is MyEtherWallet?

MyEtherWallet is a fantastic free Ethereum wallet. Used by 100,000’s around the globe. They provide a simple, safe and convenient way to store Ethereum & ERC20 Tokens. For an good tutorial on MyEtherWallet I suggest watching this great YouTube tutorial: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=i5r3bedhHrA

 

My Tokens Aren’t Showing Up in MyEtherWallet?

You will need to add the custom token, so the wallet can see your tokens.

On the right sight of the page there will be an option to add “Add Custom Token” Click this.

Enter the BTC20 token smart contract:  0xe24dc2c17da55d290b273c84ad0447ba33b8d526

Enter the Symbol: (BTC20)

Enter 18 in the Decimal Field.

Once you reload your token balances, your BTC20 holdings should now be visible and accessible 🙂

When we are doing this community support in the form of Reddit votes,Twitter re-tweets and targeted tweets directly to the the exchanges, can help persuade them and show them the benefits of listing a token with a strong and active community.
