We are live!
Friends! The day has finally arrived and we have launched POA Network. You can now add the network through various methods and send and receive your POA tokens.
The following is a guide on how to set up the POA mainet in three different services: MetaMask and MyEtherWallet and our partner TrustWallet. In both MetaMask and MyEtherWallet, you will need to change the network and add the custom POA network before you see your token balance. In TrustWallet, the POA network is already included in the list of networks to access.
If you want to use MetaMask to change network and receive the tokens, you will need to first import your private keys for the Ethereum wallet that you used. Below are the steps for the whole process, and with each step there will be a GIF to show what needs to be done
Step 1: Acquire your MetaMask wallet
If you already have a MetaMask wallet setup, feel free to move on to step 2. If you do not already have the MetaMask extension/addon set up in your browser, you will have to go to https://metamask.io/. For Chrome users, select “Get Chrome Extension,” for Firefox, “Get Firefox Addon.”
Step 2: Changing the RPC
To change the RPC, click on the on the MetaMask icon in your browser. After clicking on the top left part of the extension, navigate down to “Custom RPC” and in there, add in the following URL for the network:
You are now connected to the POA network and if you imported the same wallet that you used to purchase the POA tokens, you should see your token balance displayed.
For using MyEtherWallet, the process is very similar, except that you do not need to install an extension.
Step 1: Changing to the the POA network
Navigate to www.myetherwallet.com and on the top right you will a dropdown where you can select the network that is defaulted to “Network ETH (MyEtherWallet)”. Click on that dropdown and scroll down to “ POA”.
You are now connected to the POA network!
Step 2: Checking your balance
You can now navigate through MyEtherWallet as you usually would and if you use the same address for purchasing POA you will now see POA tokens in your balance.
Ledger Nano and Trezor
Ledger and Trezor integration is now available by default through in the POA network through MyEtherWallet. Simply navigate to the site, change the network as outlined above in the MyEtherWallet integration and then choose either Ledger Wallet or Trezor when opening your wallet.
Our partner TrustWallet already comes with the POA network loaded in its list of networks.
Step 1: Creating / Importing your wallet
If this is your first time opening TrustWallet, the first screen will present you with two options for either generating a new a wallet or importing one you already have. Clicking on Import Wallet will present a screen where you put in your private key.
Step 2: Changing the network
To change the network, click on the Settings icon , and then on the first item, Network. There you will see a list of networks, including POA Network. Selecting that, will change your network to the POA network and if you had imported the same address used to purchasing POA you should see your tokens there now.
You should now be able to see your POA balance as well as send and receive POA tokens.
The above guides was for using different wallets to change and connect to the POA network.
We are also still working on our chain explorer, and it should be ready soon for everyone to use and explore the POA network.
Finally, if you have not received your token, please get in touch with one of the admin and team members in telegram. There are a few people who have not completed their validation and will need to do so in order to receive their POA.
