Below are instructions for Parity. Here are alternative instructions for MyEtherWallet and Mist.

If you’d like to join the crowdsale then please follow the instructions! Sending Ether directly to the Lunyr Token contract address doesn’t work. You must execute create() as explained in the instructions below.

Step 4: Get ether into the account you created in Parity

In order to buy ether, you have to

  1. Register an account on a cryptocurrency exchange
  2. You can find a list of exchanges here
  3. Deposit money into your cryptocurrency exchange account

Warning: You MUST transfer all the ETH you wish to spend to your Parity Ethereum account. To check your Parity Ethereum account, double click on your account description in Parity. Do not send ETH to the crowdsale contract address directly from your exchange account, as you will not be able to join the crowdsale that way. The transaction will most likely be canceled, and in the worst case scenario you can lose your ETH. Instead, follow the steps described below.

Step 5: Go to Settings and enable the “CONTRACTS” tab

Go to SETTINGS. Enable your “CONTRACTS” tab by checking the “Contracts” box in SETTINGS. It should now appear. If you don’t see a “CONTRACTS” tab to the right of the “APPLICATIONS” tab then it has not been enabled.

Step 6: Watch the LUN token contract

You should see the screen shown above. Click +Watch. Then a window will appear that asks you to choose a contract type. Select “Custom Contract” as shown below. Then click next.

Now you should see a screen that says “ENTER CONTRACT DETAILS” and a form to specify the LUN token contract address (network address), the contract name, and contract abi.

Fill in the following information in ENTER CONTRACT DETAILS

  1. network address: 0xfa05A73FfE78ef8f1a739473e462c54bae6567D9
  2. contract name: Lunyr Token
  3. contract abi: Copy and paste the entire ABI text from here

Now click “+ ADD CONTRACT” to add the LUN token contract. You should now see the screen below:

Step 7: Execute the create() function in the token contract

Click LUNYR TOKEN. You should now see the screen below. Now click “EXECUTE” in the top right corner highlighted in the red box below.

You should now see the screen below. Click on the function field and select create().

Now check advanced sending options. Then inside the transaction value (in ETH) field, input the amount of ETH you wish to spend to purchase LUN. Note: It costs less a small amount of ETH to finalize the transaction. See below.

On the next screen, you’ll see ADVANCED OPTIONS. Enter in 70,000 gas. If it is lower, then increase it to 70,000. Click POST TRANSACTION.

Finally, enter in your password and hit CONFIRM REQUEST.

Once you confirm, the transaction will be confirmed.
