Exodus Now Offers In-Wallet EOS Registration! Register Before June!

Exodus Now Offers In-Wallet EOS Registration! Register Before June!

The Exodus team has done everyone a big favor by making EOS registration a piece of cake! They literally made a one-button method for completing the EOS token registration. This must be done before the end of the ICO on June 1st, when the real EOS blockchain launches.

“As a wallet that strives to make cryptocurrency intuitive and easy, we feel that a difficult EOS registration process is deterring and we hope that adding this function relieves some stress from blockchain banking.” – Exodus

You must have at least 0.005 ETH in your Exodus wallet to complete the process. EOS is a token on Ethereum up until the snapshot. This means fees must be paid in ETH.

If the GIF above doesn’t explain the process thoroughly enough, follow these directions: open up the “Help” menu in Exodus, then scroll down to the bottom until you see the entry for EOS registration, and then click on it. Then click on the Big Green Button and it will ask you to confirm you want to register.

Once clicked, your EOS tokens are registered to the EOS Mainnet address of your Exodus wallet!

 

* If you have already registered your EOS address, the message that your address is not registered will still appear. If you would like you can override the old one and register your address again from within Exodus. This will create a new EOS Mainnet address and Private Key (stored in Exodus).

If you don’t see the options to register, make sure your Exodus wallet is up to date. The current version is 1.50.1

Check out this in-depth blog post and the source for this post for more details on the the swap from EOS ERC-20 tokens to mainnet assets.

John Oliver Covers Bitcoin And Cryptocurrencies On Last Week Tonight

John Oliver Covers Bitcoin And Cryptocurrencies On Last Week Tonight

John Oliver is an English comedian, writer, producer, political commentator, actor and television host. He is most known for is work on The Daily Show with Jon Stewart and now he is making a name for himself on his very own show on HBO called Last Week Tonight.

Quite recently he released an entire episode covering Bitcoin and cryptocurrencies.

Oliver does a great job aggregating information to explain Bitcoin:

“I’m a virtual currency, worldwide, that you can send for little to no fees, open source, not controlled by any government, corporation or individual. It’s financial freedom BRO!”

He even brought on Don Tapscott, author of Blockchain Revolution: How the Technology Behind Bitcoin Is Changing Money, Business, and the World, who spoke on the security of blockchain technology:

“A blockchain is a very highly processed thing like a chicken mcnugget and if you wanted to hack it it would be like turning a chicken mcnugget back into a chicken. Now someday someone will be able to do that but for now it’s going to be tough.”

We commend John Oliver for covering Bitcoin and cryptocurrencies, which we believe are the future of finance and data recording.

For much of the episode Oliver focuses on responsibility when investing in cryptocurrencies telling viewers to not invest any more than they could afford to lose, which is a pretty standard phrase in any financial market. But still good advice.

John Oliver also hones in on the EOS project, which he clearly does not understand. He reads off the initial coin offering numbers scoffing at how much value the EOS team has raised. Oliver also doesn’t understand Block.one’s obscure mission statement and relationship to the EOS blockchain. Launching a cryptocurrency that competes against state created fiat currencies is highly illegal according to governments. Block.one does not want to be held directly responsible for the launch of the decentralized network. If governments could find out who Satoshi Nakamoto is, you had better believe they would kill him.

Watch the episode below:

Dear John Oliver – By eosio On Medium

Block.one’s CTO Daniel Larimer has previously built and deployed two of the most used (and “usable”) decentralized applications to date. Having originally worked on the development of Bitcoin and feeling it would not adequately perform, Dan developed a scalable high performance Blockchain architecture, now widely known as Delegated Proof of Stake (DPOS); today DPOS processes the majority of all blockchain transactions globally.

EOSIO is designed to leverage DPOS and familiar scripting languages to enable developers and businesses to more easily take advantage of high performance blockchain capabilities, and deploy open source community driven business models.

Block.one believes Blockchain technologies have the potential to become the next mainstream infrastructure for communication and commerce, and can introduce new freedoms while streamlining compliance and universal interoperability. The company is committed to the technological and regulatory innovation required to push forward on common ground for developers, users, businesses, and regulatory agencies around the world.

Block.one and community contributors make continual progress on the development of the EOSIO platform that can be viewed on the EOSIO Github, a fully transparent hub where the real time progress of feature creation through to completion can be viewed and contributed to.

They then discussed Brock Pierce, who is now moving on to independent community building and investment activities. In short the Block.one crew has no hard feelings and is thankful for his contributions.

They went on to say:

As a growing company building value through an open source community as opposed to traditional avenues of proprietary software ownership, we are conscious of the importance of robust corporate communications. We take professional standards seriously and are always focused on raising the bar as our company transitions from startup to aggressive growth. We value acknowledgment of room for continued improvement and remain confident in our mission to further the impact of Blockchain as a foundational technology.

Thanks again for the entertaining reminder to stay informed when it comes to new industries, concepts, and people.

How To Register Your EOS Tokens In The Exodus Bitcoin Wallet

How To Register Your EOS Tokens In The Exodus Bitcoin Wallet

We are big fans of Exodus and we know many of our readers are as well. We have secured information on how to register your EOS for when the blockchain launches on June 1st, 2018.

Right now, all EOS Tokens are actually ERC20 Ethereum tokens and they will need to be registered for claiming the future EOS Blockchain Tokens. This process is quite simple using MyEtherWallet.

The registration process needs to be done only once. Any additional EOS sent to your wallet after the registration will automatically be registered.

The information in this post (both text and images) comes directly from Exodus Support: http://support.exodus.io/article/65-i-ve-received-eos-tokens-in-exodus-how-do-i-register-them

Step 1

1. Export your ETH private key using the Developer Menu. Here’s how you open the Developer Menu: http://support.exodus.io/article/79-how-do-i-open-the-developer-menu

PLEASE USE THIS WITH CAUTION AS THESE PRIVATE KEYS GIVE ANYONE WHO SEES THEM 100% ACCESS TO YOUR ASSETS.

 

Step 2

Go to MyEtherWallet dot com and select “Send Ether & Tokens” then click “Private Key” to access your wallet. Paste in your Exodus Ethereum Private Key and click “Unlock”

 

Step 3

Once unlocked you will be able to see your EOS tokens in the token box on the right sidebar.

Note: you will need at least 0.01 ETH in your wallet to complete the registration process

 

Step 4

Go to https://nadejde.github.io/eos-token-sale/ and create your EOS Public and Private Key.

Note: Save these keys for future use

 

 

Step 5

Return to MyEtherWallet and select  “Contracts” from the menu then click on  “Select a contract” and choose  “EOS – Contribution.” Click  “Access” this will prefill the EOS contract address.

 

 

Step 6

Scroll down the page and click  “Select a Function” then choose  “Register” from the menu.

 

Step 7

Paste in your EOS public key, then in the next field “How would you like to access your wallet?” choose “Private Key” and paste in your Exodus ETH Private key, click unlock and then select “Write.”

 

Step 8

In the pop-up window “Amount to Send” should be 0 and “Gas Limit” should auto-populate. Then click “Generate Transaction” and select “Yes, I’m sure.”

 

Your EOS Tokens Are Now Registered! 👍

How to verify the token registration:

Select “Contracts” from the menu then click on “Select contract” and choose “EOS – Contribution” then scroll down the page and click “Select a Function” then choose “Keys” from the menu.

Paste in your Exodus ETH public key ( Exodus Receive Address) and click  “Read.” You will then see your EOS public key in the -string- attached to your ETH public key.

 

Why EOS?

EOS will be the most powerful infrastructure for decentralized applications. Watch these videos to learn more:

Exodus users can exchange EOS directly inside the Exodus wallet.

From Exodus:

 Today Exodus welcomes EOS and Aragon to our family of assets. In addition we added further updates to the restore system – restoring from your Exodus backups are even easier and now fully automatic.

In addition to EOS, Exodus has built in support for Aragon.

Exodus currently supports Aragon, Augur, Bitcoin, Decred, Dash, EOS, Ethereum, Golem, and Litecoin.

About EOS

Dan Larimer is leading the EOS project as the CTO.  He brought many innovations to the distributed ledger scene with BitShares and Steemit and his blockchain advocates say he will do even more impressive things with EOS.

 The EOS.IO software introduces a new blockchain architecture designed to enable vertical and horizontal scaling of decentralized applications. This is achieved by creating an operating system-like construct upon which applications can be built. The software provides accounts, authentication, databases, asynchronous communication and the scheduling of applications across hundreds of CPU cores or clusters. The resulting technology is a blockchain architecture that scales to millions of transactions per second, eliminates user fees, and allows for quick and easy deployment of decentralized applications.

The EOS blockchain project is currently running a year long ICO (initial coin offering). The first 20% of tokens were released during the first five days of the ICO. Another 70% of the token supply will be distributed in equal amounts everyday over the remainder of the year. Each day you can participate in the ICO window and purchase EOS. The last 10% of tokens are being held by EOS.

Many people believe the EOS project will help create a new and better path for decentralized ecosystems and economies. EOS tokens have the ability to take cryptocurrency to new heights.

EOS has been described as the “Ethereum Killer” and will “build on more than 4 years of continuous development and innovation from the BitShares and Steem community”. Source

There Are Now 3 Ways To Pick Up EOS Tokens

 

  1. Pick up EOS tokens on exchanges like Bitfinex or Kraken.
  2. Via the EOS ICO windows on Ethereum.
  3. Via the Exchange in the Exodus Wallet.

For Block One’s protection, US citizens and residents are not technically supposed to purchase EOS tokens via the ICO window, although many will by using VPNs.

Bitfinex is allowing EOS trading for US residents. We know this for a fact because we tested the process with US resident credentials on Bitfinex.

The Ethereum ICO (initial coin offering) for EOS will last an entire year. The first 20% of tokens were released during the first five days of the ICO. Another 70% of the token supply will be distributed in equal amounts everyday over the remainder of the year. Each day you can participate in the ICO window and purchase EOS. The last 10% of tokens are being held by EOS.

Any EOS picked up in 2017 is likely to produce huge returns over the next 5-10 years. We have high hopes for this blockchain project.

*If you do pickup EOS on the exchanges, you will need to make sure you have extracted your tokens to an Ethereum wallet before the real EOS token release next year. Moreover, this wallet must allow you to hold the private keys. This is very important.  You will want to claim the real tokens on the EOS blockchain. What is out right now is the ICO crowdfund token on Ethereum.
