Q Onboarding in 5 Minutes

Install MetaMask

First, install the browser add-on 'MetaMask'. After successful installation, add a custom network and enter the Q network configuration details that are documented within MetaMask tutorial. Finally, create two new accounts so you can later send Q tokens (QGOV) from one to another.

Network Configuration

You might need to configure your wallet to support and accept Q tokens (QGOV). To do this, you need to connect to the Q mainnet by using the following network details:

Parameter Value
Network name Q Mainnet
RPC-URL https://rpc.q.org
Chain-ID 35441
Symbol Q GOV
Block-Explorer-URL https://explorer.q.org

Note: ** These parameters are valid for Q mainnet only!

Get your first Q

Q tokens (QGOV) will be made available shortly for public sale.

In the meantime, you can still get started on the Q blockchain by claiming small amounts of Q tokens (QGOV) from the Mainnet Faucet. You can find more information on the faucet and on how to use it in the Faucet documentation.

Verify Q Funding

Once you have funded your wallet account, open MetaMask and select the according wallet account. It should now have received a couple of Qs and should display an according balance.

Send Q

Within MetaMask, click on "send", then "transfer between my accounts" and select the second wallet account you just created. Finish the transaction and wait for the entered amount of Q to be transferred from account to account. You can verify the transaction within the Q block explorer located at https://explorer.q.org. You can of course send Q to any other wallet address you know.

Earn Rewards

Now open a new tab and head over to https://hq.q.org. If you have MetaMask still activated and connected to Q mainnet, you should be browsing the Q decentralized app that allows users to exercise governance rights, earn rewards on Q tokens (QGOV) or do some saving and borrowing with Q DeFi.
