You can send your Ethereum contributions via MyEtherWallet. The process is fairly simple, just follow the guide below.
Remember, you will need funds in your MEW account first. You can do this by sending ETH from an exchange such as Kraken or Coinbase to your MEW address. If you need help on how to acquire ETH check out our tutorial.
Follow these steps:
Go to myetherwallet.com and choose the option for “Send Ether & Tokens.”
Choose private key as your option (unless you have other preferences) and paste your MEW private key on the space provided.
Click on “Unlock” to access your wallet .
Enter the Hero Contract address for ETH here on the “To Address” field.
IMPORTANT: MAKE SURE YOU ARE SENDING TO THE CORRECT ADDRESS BY CROSS-CHECKING THE LAST 5 DIGITS IN THE HERO DASHBOARD (membership.herotoken.io) AND THE ETHEREUM ADDRESS VIDEO. BELOW ARE (ONLY) THE FIRST AND LAST DIGITS OF THE ETH ADDRESS:
ETH ADDRESS: 0x3….(See membership.herotoken.io for full address)….85Df0
Video: https://youtu.be/yhl5AKFBBr8 (to confirm that you have the correct address)
Enter the amount of ETH you want to contribute.
The gas limit is usually automatically determined by MEW but if you want to manually input an amount you can set the gas limit to 200,000 (recommended).
Click on “Generate Transaction”
Click on “Send Transaction.”
Once you’re sure the address is correct, click on “Yes, I am sure. Make transaction!”
That’s it! You’ve successfully sent your ETH contribution for the HERO Token Sale! Make sure that your ETH address matches the one on your Hero Token Dashboard account.
Please note that Hero Tokens will only be issued after the Token Sale and the Identity Verification audit.
Optional: Confirm your ETH were sent
Copy your transaction hash from your wallet and paste it in the search bar of etherscan.io. You should first see the transaction as pending:
After a couple of moments (depending on the performance of the Ethereum network), you’ll see the transaction as submitted:
And a couple of moments later you will see a confirmation:

Why can’t I see my balances when I unlock my wallet?
This is most likely due to the fact that you are behind a firewall. It is common for the API that is used to display the balance to be blocked by firewalls. You will still be able to send transactions, but you will need to use a blockchain explorer, such as Etherscan, to view your balance.
Why can’t I see the account I have just created in the blockchain explorer (e.g., Etherchain, Etherscan)?
Only active accounts are visible in a blockchain explorer. Once you have transferred some ETH into the account, it should be visible.

I am trying to unlock my wallet but it keeps freezing / hanging.
- Using Google Chrome.
- Clicking “Continue” when you see the unresponsive error alert pop up.
- Closing other intensive programs open (e.g., a lot of browser tabs, video games, etc.).
The combination of the above typically eliminates the problem. If it doesn’t, please contact us and include your browser and OS and we can advise from there.
Why am I seeing two different versions of my Ethereum address — one with uppercase letters and one with lowercase letters?
Capitalization simply means the address has a checksum, which will detect input errors. Both addresses refer to the same wallet and are fully functional.
For example, two versions of an Ethereum address are below.
The address containing lowercase letters is not checksummed. Mistyping a letter or number in this address can result in the loss of ETH. On the other hand, the upper case checksummed version of the address will detect typos and inform you of an invalid address.
For this reason, MyEtherWallet warns you when your address is not checksummed. Remember to double check the address to prevent any issues.
If you are sending ETH to one of your own wallets, you can save the checksummed address via the “View Wallet Info” page and copy the address displayed there.
