Note - These instructions are for advanced users i.e. those familiar with crypto-currencies and digital wallets. If you are looking for an easier set of step-by-step instructions, please click here.
To get starting using TxGold, complete the following 3 steps -
Pick a Wallet. TxGold is sent and received using a digital wallet.
Before proceeding to step 2, you need to first add TxGold as a new asset/coin in your wallet. Most wallets let you search by Asset Code.
For Asset Code, use TxGold. If needed, the issuer code is GBNUEQUYB7MWDCYLLZ2XWDI7DMVXQN6R3DMMUHLJI5MRRS2J7BRLD45X.
Note that the Asset Code is case sensitive! Some wallets (e.g., BlockEQ) may try to convert to all uppercase if you are entering the info manually, don’t let that happen!
Register. To comply with U.S. regulations, we collect/verify a small set of user information. Registration only takes a few minutes, you can register here.
Acquire TxGold tokens. If you have a friend or customer who wants to send you TxGold, congratulations! Hit Receive in your wallet, and then provide them your Address/QR Code. Otherwise, here are 4 ways to acquire TxGold:
