ShipChain is an interesting new token that is starting on the Ethereum network. The ShipChain team hopes to revolutionize the entire logistics industry worldwide. They are also doing an airdrop. To get your free ShipChain tokens, follow the instructions below.
1. Visit the Website: https://www.influencive.com/shipchain-announces-free-ship-token-community-airdrop/
This will give you a quick overview of how it all works. And it would be a good idea to read the shipchain-whitepaper there to educate yourself on ShipChain.
2. Get an ERC20 Token compatible wallet. My favorite is My Ether Wallet (MEW) which can be found at: https://www.myetherwallet.com
They have a great little intro on how to keep your funds safe and prevent theft/scams/hackers from getting your coins. Once you’re through the little tutorial, you should get a page that looks like this:
It’s important to follow all instructions closely and extremely important to save/backup/write everything down. This process can be a little complicated if you’re not used to cryptos yet, but just pay attention and you’ll do fine.
3. Sign up for Telegram
If you are not already signed up for Telegram, you’ll need to do that. It’s another messaging service like Skype.
This is a Google service and I think Google is evil, but if you want some free coins, Go to: https://telegram.org/
You have to download an application. There’s an app for your computer, but I couldn’t get that one to work. It’s easier to get the app on your phone (iPhone or Android) and get signed up there. If you are in a third world country as an American expat, this step can be quite difficult. (Ask me how I know.)
Once you have a Telegram account, sign up for both ShipChain channels:
If the above links don’t work, you can just search for ShipChain on Telegram and it should pop right up.
4. Go to: https://www.shipchain.io
Click on the “Join Airdrop” button.
This will send you to a Google docs page where you can fill in your information.
You’ll need to enter a good email address, read some rules, enter your email address again, enter you Telegram username, enter you Ethereum Wallet PUBLIC KEY (never give your private key out to anyone), check all the boxes indicating you understand, and click “NEXT.”
Now you will be at a page where you enter your first and last name, and country your passport is from. Then click “NEXT” again.
Last is the swag giveaway page. It says it’s optional, but you can enter your mailing address and t-shirt size. You bet I want a ShipChain shirt! Then click “SUBMIT.”
That’s it! Sit back relax, and wait for a few weeks. You’ll get a request for Know Your Customer (KYC) information from ShipChain in approximately two weeks. If you don’t give that information to them within seven days you will not get any tokens. KYC information usually involves submitting a pdf scan of some kind of ID, license or Passport, birth certificate? This is not ShipChain trying to be jerks, this is your overbearing government in DC requiring this step. ShipChain claims the tokens will be released approximately early March.
I hope it goes to the Moon!
