How to claim EOS (test)token - Visual guide

in eos •  last year

Following the announcement from the team that a 2 week public EOS Token sale trial on the Ethereum Test Network will begin shortly, I thought it might be helpful to create a little guide for people like me who never used the Ethereum Network but like to participate in the test.

I am referring to the github instructions published by which can be found here.

Step 1

In the google chrome browser go to and install the browser plugin MetataskScreen Shot 2017-06-10 at 01.09.59.png

Step 2

Make sure that you select one of the test networks in the upper left corner (Someone please correct me if a specific test network need to be used).

Step 3

With the Metamask plugin installed, you can visit the Ethereum Foundation Wallet where you can claim the EOS Token.

Click on Contracts

and finally enter the details as stated on the github page

You notice that the address is not valid. I assume the reason is since the trial contract hasn't been deployed yet. Watch out for more information coming from and subscribe to the newsletter if you want to be sure you don't miss anything.

Hopefully this was useful.
