Can I use an Ethereum address from an exchange?

No. It is very important that you do not use an address from an exchange like Coinbase or any other cryptocurrency exchange. The reason is that once you send your ether to the Minds Token Sale address, the tokens are assigned to that address' private key; since services like Coinbase don't provide you with the key, you won't be able to move the tokens when it comes time to actually access them. By using such services to participate in a token sale you will be effectively forfeiting your tokens to Coinbase.

Hey everyone, I'm new to the whole Minds Crypto thing, I've read the FAQ and guide for Tokens. I have an Uphold account, and I generally select my Cash card(wallet), click 'send to cryptocurrency', give the Ethereum address I want to send to and off goes the Cash to that address converted to Ethereum. My question is this, is my Minds onchain address an actual Ethereum wallet address and can I do as above, but use my Minds onchain address and load my account with Ethereum ready to buy tokens, or is it not a 'Real' Ethereum address and there is something else I need to do to convert it somehow first ? Sorry if this is a stupid question, but I'm trying to learn ! Thanks for any help

Hi, I want to move my token from my Offchain address to my Receiver address. I have my own Ethereum wallet and do not wish to use MetaMask. I have entered my Ethereum address as the Receiver address. However when I try to withdraw, I am prompted to enter my "private key". What is it talking about?

How do I withdraw tokens from my OffChain address? You can exchange OffChain tokens for OnChain tokens for a small processing fee. OffChain tokens maintain a 1 to 1 reservation for OnChain tokens, and you can withdraw tokens from your OffChain address into your OnChain address at any time. You will however need to pay an Ethereum Gas fee in order to process the withdrawal transaction. During this process,I have to fill a so-called PRIVATE KEY.What's that?Please help.

Hi when I try to transfer tokens into my receiver address wallet i get an error "Your Ethereum wallet is locked or connected to another network." I don't no why for the MetaMask wallet says I am connected to Minds and I have the same balance in the MetaMask wallet as Receiver Address balance which Indicates that there is some connection. But more importantly is it possibly to withdraw Etherum to use on another site Or can I only use the Etherum on Minds therefore I don't need to put it in the Wallet and just leave it as Tokens to Use on Minds?

So I linked an onchain/reciever address today, have the key and transferred some ETH to that wallet from an exchange and it went through. I can't figure out how to spend the ETH to get tokens. Can someone help?

How can I transfer my 7 tokens from Onchain address so I can use them to boost my posts? I feel totally lost with this payment system. When i want to add to boost, I cannot do it because when I do it from onchain address then it sends me back to Ethereum Wallet, and it says I don't have enough token - but I have there 4 tokens. On receiver address I have 3 tokens. It's very complicated for me to understand your wallet system: Hope you could help me with this issue.

I am really lost on this whole on chain vs. off chain address. I already have an ethereum account and want everything to go that but still get the benefits of an off chain account. Can anyone explain this to me.

Getting an ethereum thing? I'm all new to this. ALSO, why is it that i'm (and probably everyone else) is getting mass subscriptions from fake Asian girl accounts?

So, I'm trying to do a test transfer to my OnChain Ethereum wallet but I'm thoroughly confused by this screen. (I'm aware of MetaMask, but I would like to configure this with my desktop wallet). I hit the "Approve" button, but got an error (even though I've entered my wallet address/key). Can someone point me in the right direction? Thanks.

Hello Minds; I am trying to sell my tokens for money. I am totally in over my head with cryptocurrency, Metamask, Etherscan ect. I figured out how to transfer my tokens to my onchain address, and they are visible in metamask. I initially thought they were worth nearly a dollar each, and that I could exchange them for ethereum on Metamask. But now I know they are not tradeable, and I cant find any place to sell the tokens. I would like to sell the tokens even for 15 20 cents apiece, I really need money right now. Is their an exchange where I can sell Minds tokens from Metamask? If the tokens are not worth money, then can you tell me how to bring them back to my offchain address so I can use them on Minds? Thank you ...

I've been trying for three hours to set up the withdrawal address... I tried with MetaMask. I tried without MetaMask. I tried providing an address from Coinbase... NOTHING worked... It says that they are all blocked. Even the MetaMask: I'm on the Main Network, I tried enabling and disabling the VPN. How and why can nothing work?
