Send Your Friends Unique CryptoXmas Cards: The Ultimate Guide

Dec 23, 2018 · 6 min read

CryptoXmas is a campaign on Giveth to fund a couple of charities in Venezuela by inviting anyone to send friends unique nifty CryptoXmas cards with a variety of cool designs.

Your friends get cool unique nifty CryptoXmas cards for as low as a few dollars worth of ETH and the proceeds go directly to Venezuelan charities through the Giveth Donation Application.

This is a simple HOWTO guide to send and receive CryptoXmas cards. Part 1 is a guide on how to send a card, part 2 is a guide for your friends who are not into crypto (yet!) and need to install MetaMask. The website is pretty straightforward. Go on and visit CryptoXmas if you’re already familiar with Web3 and crypto.

This whole process shouldn’t take more than a few minutes. (Let us know if anything is still unclear, or help us fix it in our Telegram)

Part 1: How to Send a Card

2- Sign in with your MetaMask to continue.

3- Select your preferred card according to its design and amount of ETH you want to send. There’s a wide variety of choices, so feel free to browse and select a good one!

4- On the new page click on Add personal message & ETH for your friend button in case you want to write something for your friend or send them some ETH along with the card. Otherwise, just click on Buy and Send button. You can see the details of what you’re paying on the bottom of the page.

5- Confirm the payment via your MetaMask extension that automatically pops up.

6- Wait for your payment — transaction — to be processed. It shouldn’t take more than several minutes. Meanwhile, you can click on the ‘status’ link to check your transaction on Etherscan.

7- After your payment is confirmed, the next page automatically loads and you can see the link to your card there.

8- Share the link with your friend via Email, Social Media, etc.

And done!

You have not only sent your friend a cool unique nifty CryptoXmas card with some ETH, but also helped Venezuelans in Christmas Spirit!
