How to participate

Purchasing BAT requires an existing Ethereum Wallet. Your Ethereum wallet balance must be high enough to cover the cost of your desired BAT purchase plus the small, associated transaction fees.

Ethereum wallets can be created and managed using several methods.

Popular methods include using a Mist Wallet or MyEtherWallet to participate in the tokens sales. Instructions on how to participate can be found here:

Buyers based in China may use imToken. We offer it only as an option and are not recommending it over any other available method.

A few things to be aware of when participating in the token sale:

Do not send ETH before the starting blocknumber or the transaction will be rejected. Only send Ether to the smart contract address specified on the website. Ether sent after the close of sale will be rejected and refunded. If you need assistance during the sale or if you have any questions before the sale, please reach out to us on Slack or through our WeChat groups by contacting Crypto_Community.
