Q Onboarding in 5 Minutes
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 from one to another.
You might need to configure your wallet to support and accept Q tokens. To do this, you need to connect to the Q mainnet by using the following network details:
|Network name||Q Mainnet|
Note: ** These parameters are valid for Q mainnet only!
Get your first Q
Q tokens will be made available shortly for public sale.
In the meantime, you can still get started on the Q blcokchain by claiming small amounts of Q tokens 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.
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.
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 or do some saving and borrowing with Q DeFi.
