A guide to help you through the process
Buying $MOOV Tokens in a simple way, step-by-step.
Starting with: What’s $MOOV?
$MOOV is currently an ERC-20 token used on the dotmoovs’ platform, it can be transferred to any Ethereum Address, and wallets that support ERC-20 tokens will be able to view the amount of MOOV (you might have to add a custom token address).
You can read more about its utility and usage in our Whitepaper.
Okay… What else?
First of all, you are going to need Ethereum to buy MOOV tokens, as a first step, sign up in an exchange such as Kraken or Coinbase. In this example, we are going to use Kraken.
Step 1: Sign up for a Kraken account
Enter your email address, select a username, and set a strong password on your account.
Step 2: Verify your account
By adding your name, date of birth, country, and phone number to your account, you can buy ether with other cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin or Tether. In order to use fiat currency (i.e. USD or EUR) however, you’ll need to provide additional supporting documents verifying your identity. Read about Kraken verification levels here.
Step 3: Deposit fiat or cryptocurrency
You can fund your Kraken account in a number of ways. How you do so will depend upon your location and preferences.
Step 4: Purchase Ethereum!
Once your account is funded with fiat, you’re ready to purchase your first Ether. At this point, you’ll also have access to advanced charting tools, 24-hour global client support
Awesome, I’ve got some Ethereum on my Kraken Exchange now!
There are a few places where you can buy $MOOV. For this tutorial, we are going to use Uniswap to buy MOOV tokens.
To buy MOOV tokens on Uniswap, you need Ethereum (ETH) in your wallet (NOT EXCHANGE), such as Metamask. Right now, we are going to set up a Metamask Wallet!
Setting up a Metamask Wallet
Step 1: Download Metamask HERE, make sure to use one of the supported browsers below.
Step 2: Add the Metamask Extension to your browser following the picture on the left.
Step 3: On Metamask, you can create a new wallet or import a wallet, if you already have got a digital wallet, then you can import it using the saved Seed Phrase. For Hardware Wallets such as a Trezor or Ledger, you never import the seed phrase. You can link them later on Metamask (Step 4)
To create a new wallet, in case you’ve got Ethereum only in the Exchange (Kraken), make sure to create a strong password that you will never forget, then make sure to save the Seed Phrase in multiple safe places as well.
Step 4 (Only For Hardware Wallet Users): You can safely add a Trezor or Ledger without exposing the private by simply creating a new account inside the Metamask interface, follow the pictures below.
Step 5: Deposit Ethereum in your Metamask Wallet. That’s an easy step, in the wallet that you’ve created or imported, click on the “Buy” button on the main page of Metamask, then click on Directly Deposit Ether, the address shown is your Ethereum Address, and you should transfer ETH bought in the Exchange (Kraken) to this address.
In the exchange, just go to your assets, and Click on Withdrawal Ethereum to your Metamask Ethereum Address.
Verify the funds and Ethereum transaction TXid in a few minutes!
Ouch… We’ve got the Metamask Wallet ready with Ethereum, now we have to add the Custom Token Address for dotmoovs
How to Add Custom Token Address of dotmoovs in Metamask?
Following the steps below on Metamask, we can easily add any Token to our account!
Step 1: At the end of your Metamask Extension Account Page, there’s a Big Button named Add Token, MOOV might not appear in the search tab, so we need to do it manually.
Step 2: Click in the Custom Token Tab, in the contract address, you can put dotmoovs’ contract address, which is located in our webpage, @dotmoovs Telegram (always check the page @, scammers will add you in fake communities) and Twitter page. So it’s going to be exactly like this:
dotmoovs Uniswap Contract Address: 0x24ec2ca132abf8f6f8a6e24a1b97943e31f256a7
Token Symbol — MOOV
Okayyy, what have we got until now?
The Metamask Set-up and Custom Token are done. Now we need to buy dotmoovs’ tokens ($MOOV) on Uniswap!
How to Buy dotmoovs’ tokens on Uniswap, Step-By-Step
Step 1: Go to the Uniswap app. (ALWAYS CHECK THE CONTRACT ADDRESS ON DOTMOOVS.COM)
dotmoovs contract address — 0x24ec2ca132abf8f6f8a6e24a1b97943e31f256a7
Step 2: Click Connect an Ethereum wallet such as MetaMask.
Step 3: Select the token you’d like to convert in a dropdown menu and the cryptocurrency you’d like to swap it for, which should be in MOOV/ETH already.
Step 4: Enter the amount of MOOV you want to buy in ETH or MOOV and Click Swap.
Step 5: After clicking “Swap,” preview the transaction in a pop-up window and then confirm the request directly from your wallet, if it’s a ledger or trezor, you will need to confirm in them as well.
Step 6: Next, you’ll have to wait for a while for the transaction to be finalized on the Ethereum blockchain — and remember that you can keep track of how this is progressing through the Etherscan.io blockchain explorer.
Step 7: After the transaction, you should be able to see MOOV in your Metamask MOOV account already!
