Looking to buy on the Waves DEX?
    Do It Yourself!  ⇒

If you would prefer to hold the Shadow Tokens yourself, or perhaps trade them on the decentralized exchange, then you will need to set up a Waves wallet.

Please visit https://waveswallet.io for the web app, or use the WavesLiteApp on Chrome, and follow the steps to create a New Account.

Be sure to write down your "seed", as you will need this info as a backup to restore your wallet on another computer.

⇐ Previous Fund Your Account ⇒

Next, you will need to fund your account. There are links to deposit USD using a credit card, or deposit BTC or ETH by sending it to a certain address. You can also send Waves from a different exchange (eg Bittrex) by transferring it to your wallet address shown at the top.

If you are new to digital currencies, the easiest way forward is to purchase some Waves directly using a credit card. For larger amounts, or those not in the supported countries (such as USA), please use Bittrex or Coinbase and verify your identity.

Note that you will need a small amount of Waves to buy, sell, or transfer tokens. It costs 0.001 Waves to transfer, and 0.003 Waves to use the exchange when a buy/sell order is filled. The easiest way to exchange currencies is to use Changelly.

⇐ Previous Buy Tokens ⇒

Now that your account is funded, and you have at least 0.003 Waves, it's time to buy some Shadow Tokens!

Click on the link at the top for the Waves Decentralized Exchange.

In the search box, type in ShadowToken and ensure it has the green checkmark and matches the identifier ETLzrCpBqTrpyuMGdiVLBPZnUoKwte88oVdJjoFi5R2h.

Markets will be maintained in SHDW/BTC, SHDW/ETH and SHDW/WAVES.

Observe the list of sell orders. These are people wanting to sell ShadowTokens. The buy orders are people wanting to buy at a certain price.

Enter your Buy order by setting your price and number of ShadowTokens. The 0.003 Waves fee is paid only when your order is filled.

Note: there may be existing sell orders, but the starting price will be set on August 1st. Do not buy before August 1st or you will likely be paying a lot more!

Frequently Asked Questions

We have answered a wide range of questions for your convenience

Q. Why are you using the Waves platform and not Ethereum?

After investigating Ethereum, I found that it was much too complicated for the average user. And the wallet requires you to download the whole multi-GB blockchain, which can take forever. Waves, on the other hand, has a simple online wallet available, doesn't need the whole blockchain, and supports a decentralized token exchange right from the start.

Q. What are these tokens really?

Each token represents a share of ownership of the game Shadow Era, the digital assets, intellectual property, and physical card inventory. There are 10,000,000 tokens in total. Besides being publicly tradable, players get many benefits and rewards from being token holders. However, digital tokens are not shares in a company nor are they financial securities. There will be a trust company to manage the assets and bank accounts, and the Board of Directors will be directing the development and token holders will vote on major decisions.

Q. Why should I buy Shadow Tokens?

As an investor, buying tokens at initial launch prices is a great opportunity to make money if you believe the price of tokens will rise in the future. As a player, you'll have a chance to get involved in the game and earn many rewards.

Q. How will token holders link them to their Shadow Era account?

In order to receive rewards in the game, we have to know your daily balance of tokens. We can verify ownership of your Waves address in one of 2 ways:

  1. Keep your "easy buy" tokens with us, or deposit your tokens into our account. You can withdraw them at any time.
  2. Send any amount of ST (eg 0.000001) to our Waves address 3PKEQiRe2u6488jdvUAUYshrM4fQPf4omak with your player name as an attachment.

More info about verifying your Waves address will be provided in the future.

Q. How is the price of the tokens determined?

The tokens are available for purchase on the Waves decentralized exchange. Since the tokens are traded on an open market, the price is determined by the demand.

  • The number of tokens purchased with the "easy buy" option is determined by the current market price at the time of purchase.
  • The price will likely keep increasing over time as demand grows, until all the tokens are sold.
  • As an open market, other people are free to create buy and sell orders at whatever prices they want.
