[GUIDE] How to Purchase CHP Tokens
Find out how to purchase and transfer CHP tokens from an exchange and into your CoinPoker wallet. We will be using KuCoin, our latest exchange, in this example as well MyEtherWallet as an ERC-20 client.
If you’re new this is a great way to avoid common mistakes and learn about how crypto transfers work. So, let’s get started!
STEP 1: Go to KuCoin and log in
That is, if you have an account. If you’re completley new to KuCoin, you can register an account and follow these easy instructions on how to get started.
STEP 2: Search for CHP tokens
Once you’re logged in, search through the many tokens available for CHP, and once you find it go ahead and click on the “Buy” button.
STEP 3: Use the Buy/Sell box to purchase CHP
You’ll see a lot of graphs and figures, but on the bottom right corner there’s will be a widget that is secured by two factor authentication (2FA). Once you enter your code, you will be able to purchase tokens.
STEP 4: Go to your account to transfer the tokens to your ERC-20 wallet
STEP 5: Withdraw funds to your ERC-20 wallet
Be very careful when entering your e-wallet address, and make sure you carefully view your email confirmation data before clicking “Confirm” as all transfers on blockchain are irreversible.
STEP 6: Check if your transfer is complete before freaking out
Don’t log into an empty e-wallet and panic. You can always check Etherscan to see if your transfer went through. You can find a link to the transaction details (similar to a digital receipt) by heading to the Withdrawal tab in KuCoin.

STEP 7: Go to your ERC-20 wallet client (we will be using MyEtherWallet in the next steps)
BEWARE! There are plenty of phishing sites out there that mimic MyEtherWallet (a.k.a. MEW) to trick users into revealing sensitive data. Find out how to spot this and other common crypto scams easily.
STEP 8: Add CHP tokens to your MEW wallet info
Go to the “View Wallet Info” and select the “View w/ Address Only” option to check out your funds. You will not see your CHP tokens immediately and again: do no panic! You need to add the token first, which we’ll show you how to do here:
STEP 9: Transfer CHP from your verified e-wallet to your CoinPoker bankroll
Go to the “Send Ether & Tokens” tab and access your wallet using one of the recommended methods. You can of course use the non-recommended options but note that these are less secure (here’s why).
