Can I withdraw directly from COIN app to MetaMask or do I have to make a conversion somehow to ETH first?
No you can withdraw directly to MetaMask, I have done just that. It is the same address as your ETH, but you need to add the contract number for XYO for it to show:
Look under Profile Summary to the right. Once the contract number is there, MetaMask should pull the decimal and symbol.
I have also withdrawn directly to my Ledger Nano S hardware device using MetaMask to view it. Works fine.
Hate to sound noobie-ish but can you go through the steps? I can pull up Meta Mask by itself, and I can click on your supplied link to have Etherscan load up with the contract number loaded but what do I have to do from the COIN end and from the Etherscan end and the Meta Mask end? Maybe I just need another Mountain Dew. Thanks for your help.
No worries, this stuff isn’t very intuitive… So from MetaMask, do you see XYO added with a zero balance now (it will be under your ETH amount)? If so you’re set from MetaMask (actually you don’t even have to do this first… if you already transferred some XYO, it would show your balance once loaded).
From COIN you don’t have to do anything other than click the “withdraw” button, you’ll get an email asking you to log in to the COIN web app online to complete the transaction. You only have one ETH address with MetaMask and that is all you need, your ERC20 tokens (like XYO) will piggyback off that address. Supply that address and wait. Once processed, the XYO shows up pretty quickly.
You don’t do anything from the Etherscan end other than look at the transaction. Look up your wallet (ETH address) and you’ll see all ETH transactions. Click the ERC20 tab to see the piggyback transactions.
If you have any other ERC20 tokens or even some ETH (like on an exchange wallet or another wallet) I recommend transferring a small amount if you can do so cost-effectively so you feel comfortable with the process. Remember you will need a small amount of ETH to send from wallet to wallet (XYO Network pays this with COIN, so you don’t need to worry about that). The amount you need is very small, a couple pennies but I learned after the first transaction to keep a small amount of ETH in my wallet.
Also big warning… when I transferred about 100k of XYO from MetaMask to my hardware wallet, the default “gas” was something like $10 USD (in ETH)… this totally threw me for a loop. I think it saw it as 100k ETH (yeah I wish… maybe $10 for 100k of ETH is reasonable, not for $250 of XYO!) so I had to play with the gas to get the numbers down to a couple pennies again. It transferred fine. You don’t have to worry about this if you are just storing in your MetaMask wallet but you might run into it when transferring. Let us know how it goes.
@_ryan I’m going to try it this weekend. If I get stuck I’ll stop and let you know how far I got before I was stumped. Hopefully not. Hey, back in Mar. I talked about a way to power the sentinels from USB? This is the first version. It was able to take a 4++ update powered this way also. I’m going to clean it up and then post it for the community. Still have to fully vet. But so far so good. Note: I ran it directly @ 5Vdc thru USB and it got a little flaky. 3.3V seems to work solid.. Thought you’d appreciate this.
Also I found that by making my sentinels 2-color it’s easier to tell them apart when you have more than 8. 64 color combinations.
Awesome where can I make a purchase
Dam that’s a lot
I don’t have 64 but I do have 8 that came with each of my 2 bridges and 8 more coming with my dataist kit. I don’t think I’ll ever have all 64.
I’m going to clean up the next one for construction information and then I’ll put together an instruction set or maybe partially construct some and let the community members just connect two wires to their circuit board. Or create a daughter PCB that would plug into the main board.
In order for it to be used with a battery OR USB, the case would have to be a little bit taller. Maybe I’ll work on that next. 3d print a slightly taller top of the case…?..
