Viola.AI is built as an ERC20 token on the Ethereum blockchain which ensures security and high liquidity of the token’s ecosystem. Once you are successfully whitelisted, you can purchase VIOLET tokens during the ICO (Initial Coin Offering)/Public Token Sale.

ALERT: Backup your wallet and store it securely. You may permanently lose your tokens as there’s no way to recover your wallet.

IF you already have an Ether Wallet setup and you’d be ready to participate in the Public Sale is LIVE, you can skip to Step #5 below. Otherwise, keep reading… =)

Create a secured Ethereum address on MyEtherWallet (MEW)

Step 1: Create a strong and secured password on MyEtherWallet.

Step 2: Click on the Download Keystore File (UTC/JSON) button. This enables you to save a downloaded copy of your wallet on your computer. Store this file securely (on a USB drive or in your computer). Read the important message carefully, then click on the ‘I understand. Continue.’ button.

Step 3: Select Private Key from the list shown on the left-hand corner of the screen. Enter your Private Key in the empty white box, then click Unlock.

Upon clicking Unlock, you can now see the wallet and your public Ethereum address at the bottom of the screen. Use the Ethereum address to receive the VIOLET tokens.

Step 4: Print your paper wallet backup and/or consciously keep a clear hand-written copy on a piece of paper.

ALERT: Remember not to lose it! There’s no way to recover your wallet!

The printed version of MyEtherWallet looks like this…

You now have an Ethereum address! Keep it secured at all times. You’d be ready to use this address to participate when the Token Sale is LIVE.

Search your Ethereum address on EtherScan. Bookmark this page. This is where you can view your balance at any time.

Step 5: Copy your Ethereum address and be ready to ‘paste’ it or key-in into the Ethereum Address field, upon completing your personal details/profile on Viola.AI.

You’re all set!
