How to Use MyEtherWallet (MEW) to Participate in Mindzilla’s AIQ Token Crowdsale
Before we delve into the details on how you can participate in Mindzilla’s Artificial Intelligence Quotient (AIQ) token crowdsale, we must highlight the following:
Security, security and more security! As with any online financial services or apps, it is imperative that you keep your MEW’s passwords and private keys safe and offline to ensure that your accounts (with your funds) are not being accessed or compromised. IT IS YOUR RESPONSIBILITY to keep your funds secure at ALL TIMES and you cannot hold us, MEW or indeed any other services accountable for any financial losses. This guide is produced to help you understand how MEW works and how to use it to participate in AIQ’s crowdsale. PLEASE READ MEW’S SECURITY NOTICES!
Another Important Note
While we chose MEW as an example in this guideline, due to its popularity, you will be able to participate in Mindzilla’s AIQ token crowdsale using any ERC-20 compatible wallet.
Please DO NOT send ETH from exchanges (such as Coinbase, Binance, Korbit, Bittrex, Bihumb, etc.) as you WILL NOT be able to receive AIQ tokens through their systems!
