Whitelist Instructions for SportsCastr’s FanChain Token Sale
Get Whitelisted For SportsCastr’s FanChain!
We are excited to open up the whitelist for the SportsCastr FanChain Token Sale. In order to participate in the upcoming token sale, you must complete our whitelist process which verifies your identity and whitelist’s the Ethereum (ETH) address that you plan to use during the token sale.
Individuals who join the whitelist will be first in-line when the public sale opens. We cannot guarantee participation in the public sale to individuals who do not join the whitelist, and the whitelist may close at anytime without advanced notice.
Residents of the following countries may not participate in any phase of the FanChain token sale and will be prohibited from completing the whitelist process: USA, Cuba, Iran, North Korea, Syria, and the Crimea Region of Ukraine.
Technology and Security
We are utilizing SimpleToken’s KYC OST platform to manage our whitelist process. This system has been used by several large token sales to ensure a smooth and enjoyable experience. To verify IDs and to comply with KYC/AML regulations, we utilize Cynopsis Solutions, one of the leaders in KYC/AML technology. All information you submit is encrypted with 256-bit AES and SSL/TLS encryption. We have gone above and beyond to make sure your sensitive personal information is safely encrypted and we are only working with partners who have demonstrated the same level of commitment to your security.
Step 1 — Create an account and confirm your email address
Visit https://fanchain.com/fanchain/account/join to begin the registration process. You will be asked to:
- Enter a valid email address
- Enter a secure password of at least 8 characters
- You will also be asked to provide an estimated purchase amount. You will not be restricted to purchasing this amount but please try to be as accurate as possible
Once you have created an account, you can login at https://FanChain.com/account at anytime to check your status or to update your account settings.
After successfully entering the above information, you will receive the first of four emails from us, asking you to verify your email address.
You will need to confirm the email address you entered before you can move on to the next step. If you entered an incorrect email address, you will see a link to change it within your account’s dashboard. The Dashboard looks like this:
Step 2. — Confirm your identity and whitelist your ETH address
After you confirm your email address, you will be allowed to complete the next step. From within your account’s dashboard, click on “Step 2 — Confirm Identity”
This will take you to a form where you will be asked to enter your personal information and enter the ETH address where you will be sending your funds from during the token sale.
We require the following identifying information from you: Name, address, birthdate, nationality and passport number.
As part of this process, we also need the Ethereum (ETH) address that you plan to use to send your Ethereum from to purchase FanChain tokens once the sale opens.
Important note about your ETH address: Enter the Ethereum address where you expect to send your ETH from to purchase FanChain tokens. This ETH address cannot be from an exchange (e.g. CoinBase, Binance). We recommend using MyEtherWallet. Any Ethereum sent from an address that is not whitelisted will not be accepted. If you have to change your ETH address after you have been whitelisted, email firstname.lastname@example.org and wait for confirmation of address change before sending any Ethereum.
You will also be asked to upload two photos: a scan of your passport’s photo ID page:
And a photo of you holding your passport open to its photo page, clearly showing your face and the passport. Please be sure not to cover any important information on your passport’s photo page with your fingers, and do not wear hats, sunglasses or other apparel that may obstruct your face.
Once you submit the form, you will receive an email confirming your submission. At this point, your information is securely sent to Cynopsis Solutions for verification of your ID and to comply with KYC/AML regulations.
We strive to approve your application within 72 hours, though the process may happen much faster. If there is a problem with your application (e.g. one of your passport photos is illegible), you will receive an email from us asking you to resubmit any information we need. The email will look like this:
Step 3 — Access the “Buy Now” page
Within 72 hours, you will receive an email from us with confirmation that your ID has been accepted:
You will then be able to access the “Buy Page.” As the public FanChain sale is not open yet you, will not be able to buy just yet, but you are all setup to participate in the sale and you will be notified when the public sale opens.
IMPORTANT NOTE: WE WILL NEVER SEND OUR ETH DEPOSIT ADDRESS OVER EMAIL. PLEASE BE HYPER-VIGILENT AS PHISHING SCAMS ARE COMMON IN TOKEN SALES. ONLY SEND ETH USING THE ETHEREUM ADDRESS THAT’S LISTED ON THE “BUY FANCHAIN” PAGE.
