How to join iEx.ec’s Crowdsale

iExec is the first blockchain-based fully distributed cloud computing platform. iExec relies on the Ethereum blockchain to organize a market of computing resources where everyone can monetize servers, applications and data-sets.

RLC is the token that will allow their holders to access the computing resources within the iEx.ec network. This is an ERC20-compliant digital asset on Ethereum, which basically means that you have full control over your tokens. Once the set of smart contracts is deployed on the Ethereum blockchain, nobody can modify the code. That is, it lives and autonomously runs on the blockchain.

In order to understand the potential of the iEx.ec technology, I invite you to read the whitepaper and roadmap. The whole team has the vision and the experience to build a new decentralized infrastructure that will make Internet safer, greener and smarter. We’re available to answer all your questions on Slack or through any of your favorite social networks.

iExec’s crowdsale starts on April 19th at 13:00 PM GMT. The following post will explain how to join the crowdsale. Participants have two solutions to join the crowdsale :

  • Participate directly through the iExec smart contract
  • Invest using a third party platform like ICO365.com, ICOage or imToken

http://crowdsale.iex.ec

Using the iExec Smart contract: BTC or ETH only.

For your contribution, you need an Ethereum address in both cases

If you don’t have one ready yet, the first thing you need to do is to create an Ethereum address to store your RLC tokens. A ‘secured address’ means that you make sure your private key is properly stored. This is super important because if you ever lose this private key, you will also lose your RLC tokens and there is no existing way to recover.

Don’t send currencies from an exchange! If you do so, you may not be able to retrieve your tokens.

You can use MyEtherWallet, Metamask, Parity, Mist or Ledger (hardware wallet). Again, remember to backup your wallet and store the backup securely! If you don’t, you may loose all your token permanently. There is no other way to recover your wallet.

The crowdsale contract address is the following:

0xec33fB8D7c781F6FeaF2Dd46D521D4F292320200

The minimum contribution amount is set to:

  • 1 ETH
  • 0.05 BTC

You can pay using Bitcoin only the first 24 hours, from April 19th 13:00 PM UTC to April 20th 13:00 PM UTC.

Step 6

After successfully completed all steps described so far, you’re done! You have successfully acquired your own RLC tokens.

The RLC token are distributed immediately when the contribution has been sent to the smart contract. However the token smart contract is locked until the end of the crowdsale. This means that your tokens will be transferable and tradeable right after the end of the crowdsale.

You can change your fiat using regulated exchanges platforms like Gatecoin.com, Kraken.com or Coinhouse.io, and many more. Please consult coinmarketcap.com for a complete list of exchange platforms.

We recommend the following Bitcoin wallets: Ledger, Green Address, Mycelium.

If you have other cryptocurrencies, you can use Shapeshift to convert them into ETH or BTC (fees are low).
