The Bloom Token Sale
1. Make Sure to Have Your Wallet Setup
The only way to participate will be to send funds directly to our smart contact address. You will need to send ETH from a wallet that accepts ERC20 token. For example, you may use wallets such as MetaMask, MyEtherWallet, or Mist.
- We will make the contract address public on our website.
- You will receive your BLT tokens to the same address from which you sent the funds.
- Note: On the day of the sale, transaction times may be slow. Some may choose to prepare their ether early.
2. Sale Opens
The Bloom Token Sale will open starting Nov 30, ~9am PT.
- Note: There may be a minor delay due to block times.
3. Transfer Your Desired Amount of Ether
From your wallet, transfer the desired amount of Ether to the address shown to you. Please send your desired amount of ETH from a wallet that accepts ERC20 token.
- Please note, this post is not an endorsement of specific wallets as a means to manage your Ether. We cannot guarantee the correct behavior of wallets you use for managing your digital assets.
- Do NOT send ether from an exchange address (such as Coinbase). You will lose your BLT.
- If you have your Ethereum on an exchange or hosted wallet (such as Coinbase), you MUST transfer this Ethereum to a ERC20 Compatible wallet prior to contributing.
How to do you send Ethereum to Bloom?
There are a number of ERC20 compatible wallets that you can use to send ETH. We are showing an example of the process below with MyEtherWallet.
As an example: If you are using MyEtherWallet.com for managing your ether, go to the Send Ether & Tokens section and enter the address that you have confirmed from the official Bloom channels, the amount of ether you want to spend, and generate and send the transaction.
Unlock access to your wallet
The recommended gas limit is 300,000. Once it is completed, you will receive your BLT tokens to this ETH address after the crowdsale completes.
Keep Track of Sale Progress
You will see a countdown indicating how much time is left until the end of the token sale; once the sale ends, you will no longer be able to purchase BLT tokens from us.
The sale will closed when the hardcap $50M is filled or when the sale time ends, whichever comes first. Tokens will be available for transfer on Jan 1, 2018.
