How to participate


To follow this guide, you will need:

  1. A web browser.
  2. A certain amount of ether in the account that you control. Please notice, only ETH will be accepted for the AvantGarde Ratings tokensale event.

Getting Started

If you don’t have a ERC20-compatible address to send from, or ether (ETH) to contribute, start from Step 1. Otherwise, go to Step 4.

Step 1: Creating an account

First type “metamask chrome extension” in to Google, and click the link that begins with You will be taken to the install page, where you can click “Add to Chrome”.

Now you will see the Metamask fox in your browser tab.

Click it to open your wallet.

You will be prompted to create a secure password for your Metamask account. Make sure that the Ethereum Main Net network is selected (on the top left corner).

Step 2: Importing an Account

If you have a private key or JSON file for a wallet already, you can import that wallet in to Metamask. Simply click “≣” at the top right, choose “Import Account”.

You will need to input your raw private key into the “private” key field, or the typical JSON keystore file. Otherwise, you can select Create Account to generate a new one.

Step 3: Getting Ether

To be able to participate in the ICO, you will need to have some ether (ETH) in an account that you control. You can buy ETH from different cryptocurrency exchanges.

Important Security Reminders

  • DO NOT send ETH directly from an exchange, otherwise your tokens might never be recovered.
  • There is no need to increase default gas price (or the value you are used to). Unless there is an unusual traffic in the Ethereum network, 30 GWEI should be enough to get the transaction confirmed in a few minutes.

Step 4: Buying AVG Tokens


The event is open from 20:00 GMT+2, April 9, 2018 until 20:00 GMT+2, April 30, 2018 in 3 stages (or you may find more information in the Chapter 5 of our Whitepaper), or whenever the supply of tokens reaches zero.

This is the main page of You’ll see the “Participate” button. Click it, and you’ll be taken to our registration page.

This is the beginning of the contribution process. Please enter your details and click on ‘Register’ or ‘Login’ if you have already created an account with our platform.

Once done, you will be redirected to your home page and tokensale platform. Please note that using Metamask from Chrome browser on a computer will be the only technical possibility for participation. Now please select the amount you would like to buy and click “Buy now”.

MetaMask has made it easy for all of us, by filling in the information automatically. This means that after you log in on the MetaMask chrome extension, you won’t need to fill in any of the information, as it will be automatically added based on the information you provided on previous steps. Metamask will be opened automatically so just click “Send”.

One last step is to add the token to your MetaMask, so you can see your balance. Click “Add Token”, and paste in the following information:

Address: 0xAEC2ec0f4dc32d4658bB23D13aB2069eDc7C423B

Decimals: 18

Token Symbol: AVG

And that’s it!

When your transaction has been mined and entered into the blockchain, you will be able to see it under “Tokens” in your Metamask account.
