Today I’m going to show you how to register your EOS tokens if you purchased them on an exchange. Also, if you are a citizen of the U.S. or China, there is a third party app that can help you out as well.
Ultimately this process will be mapping the Ethereum address that contains your EOS tokens to a new set of EOS public and private keys so that when the EOS Mainnet launches and the snapshot is taken, your tokens will be registered and approved to use on the EOS platform. Once this happens, any EOS that aren’t registered will be Non-transferrable on the Ethereum Blockchain.
Tips for making this process easier for you:* Move all of your EOS tokens from the exchange and store them in a wallet in which you have complete control, for example: MetaMask.
* Store all of your EOS tokens in one wallet so you only have to register that one ETH address.
If you are in the U.S. or China, and you are not able to view the EOS.io website, in the section that informs you of the process for taking part in the crowd sale and how to register your tokens, this third party app will work for you, it does leave a bit to be desired in regards to design, but it’s meant for utility.
First thing, move your EOS tokens onto a secure wallet which you have control of the private keys. Again, in this case, the wallet will be MetaMask. If you are not in the U.S. or China, go to eos.io and scroll down to the “Get EOS” button.
From here you’ll have to confirm that you are not a citizen of the U.S. or China. You can scroll down until you see “Participation Instructions” and click on the “Register” tab. Please read through these guidelines so you fully understand this process and what will happen if you miss the deadline.Since I am using MetaMask for this tutorial I will click on the MetaMask button.
Unlock your MetaMask wallet and navigate to the account that is holding your EOS tokens.
Once that’s done, click on the EOS Token Distribution button.
After the page is done loading, click on the “Register EOS Key” button.
This is the important information you’re going to want to back up and keep safe.
You’ll see your EOS public key listed first, and below this is your private key. Write both of these down, or print them out and store them safely.
To confirm your private key, you’ll need to copy and paste them into the space provided. Make sure that the private key was copied and pasted correctly and click on the “I have safely backed up my private key” button.
From here you will receive a notification in your MetaMask wallet to submit the transaction. Since this will cost gas to complete, you’ll need some Ethereum in this wallet to complete the transaction. In this case, it will cost about $1.50.
It might take a few minutes to go through unless you pump up the amount of gas you want to spend, but once the transaction goes through the screen will show the contract address, the Ethereum account that you registered, the EOS public key and the token balances. The listing of the Ethereum account is proof that this address is now mapped to the EOS public key (and subsequently the private key which you saved earlier. Any EOS that are stored in this wallet are now going to be included in the snapshot in June.
Now that you have registered your Ethereum address with your newly created EOS public and private keys, you’ll need to go and look up your username that will be assigned to this address upon the genesis block of the EOS blockchain. This is the final piece of information you’ll need to solidify and prove that you have indeed mapped your ethereum address to your newly created EOS public and private keys.
