How to participate in the Safeguard Token Sale
In this article, I’ll explain exactly how to participate in the Safeguard Token Sale. SGT Presale participants immediately get a 20% bonus in tokens if they join the sale (and transfer NEO) before the 11th of June!
So, you’re interested in partaking in the Safeguard Token (SGT) sale? Great!
It’s only possible to participate in our tokensale with a NEO address, so let’s start there.
If you’ve already got a NEO wallet, you can skip step 1 and start on step 2. If you’ve already whitelisted with a NEO wallet, you can skip steps 1 and 2 and start on step 3. If you’re all set up with a NEO wallet and NEO tokens, you can skip straight to step 5 or 6, depending on which wallet you’re using.
Step 1. Get a NEO-compatible wallet
Since NEO has become the first choice for more and more ICOs and token sales, an increasing amount of NEO wallets have emerged within the crypto space, both in centralised and decentralised forms.
Based on our partnership with Aphelion, a decentralised NEO wallet and exchange platform, we recommend downloading their Desktop NEO wallet, which can be found here. Their wallet is secure, reliable and easy to use. Most importantly, our partnership with them means that from the 7th of June onwards, there will be an option to ‘participate in the SGT token sale’ within their Desktop wallet.
It’s possible to partake using any NEO-compatible wallet. Another option would be the NEON desktop wallet.
Beware of scam wallets. According to City of Zion, a developer that offers a number of NEO wallets, myneowallet(.io) is a scam, as it saves private keys right in its database.
Step 2. Whitelist for the SGT Presale
Once you’ve got a NEO wallet address, you can whitelist for the SGT presale on our website: https://safeguardtoken.com/. Start by clicking on ‘Whitelist for Presale’. From there, it’s a really simple process: just fill in your details and paste your NEO wallet address and you’ll be good to go.
3. Acquire NEO
SGT can only be purchased with NEO, so this step is important.
The easiest way to acquire NEO is with a mainstream cryptocurrency like Ethereum, Bitcoin or Litecoin. This can be done on a cryptocurrency exchange platform like Binance or Kucoin. If you still need to convert from Fiat to crypto, we recommend using Coinbase — it’s available in 32 countries, has ID verification, and you can purchase with credit, debit or bank transfers. You can sign up here. You’ll have to verify your identification by providing your photo ID, phone number and verifying your bank account, but once you’ve been verified, you’re all set to start buying cryptocurrency.
4. Transfer NEO to your Aphelion (or other NEO-compatible) crypto wallet
Following steps 1, 2, and 3, you can easily transfer your NEO to your Aphelion wallet, NEON or any other NEO-compatible wallet. This can be done by simply ‘sending’ your NEO to the wallet address which you’ll receive with your NEO-wallet.
5. Participate in the Safeguard Token Sale
Remember, the 20% bonus for presale participants is only valid until the 11th of June, so it’s really important that you act fast with this step.
Once your NEO wallet has NEO in it, you’ll be able to participate in the SGT token sale directly from within your Aphelion dashboard. Simply click on ‘Participate in ICO’ and in the drop-down list you’ll be able to find SGT.
Enter an amount you’d like to invest (keeping in mind our presale minimum of 22 NEO), and you’ll be good to go.
6. Participate with any other NEO-wallet address.
Apart from the Aphelion Desktop wallet, it’s possible to join our presale with any other NEO-compatible wallet. All you’ll need to do is enter our ICO’s scripthash, and then the amount you want to transfer.
Our scripthash is: 0x02728be64b898d1af733aa7f3f00f33b1b209dae
If you’re using the NEON wallet, you’ll have to remove the ‘Ox’ at the beginning of the scripthash.
IMPORTANT: BEWARE SCAMMERS
We will never post a wallet address in a medium post. We will only ever post our scripthash. There have been scam attempts of fake medium accounts, so keep in mind that articles will only ever be published by myself and my co-founder Ingmar Vroege, and that our official medium URL is: www.medium.com/safeguardtoken.
Please get in touch with us (Telegram is easiest) if you want to double-check our scripthash or if you’re suspicious of a spam attempt.
Here is a photo of my co-founder, Ingmar, with our original scripthash. Only ever use this one.
