Wallet Tutorial

To buy any custom token on the Ethereum blockchain, you have to have a specific Ethereum wallet that can receive, store and send ERC-20 tokens. ERC-20 is a defined token protocol that allows for tokens to be used with smart contracts. Most Ethereum ICOs and crowdsales use these ERC-20 tokens. Nimbus Token is an ERC-20 protocol token.

Ethereum.org, of course, has wallet software that will allow you to receive, store and send Nimbus Tokens. But there are two others that can do the same job, MyEtherWallet.com and MetaMask.ioMyEtherWallet.com is a browser based Ethereum wallet solution whereas MetaMask.io is a clever Chrome-based extension.

Again, and let me stress this, you’ll need an Ethereum wallet that supports ERC-20 tokens in order to receive any NIM tokens purchased from NimbusToken.com. If you do not, your ETH will be lost as well as your Nimbus Tokens.

In this tutorial, we’ll show you how to add them to MyEtherWallet.com and MetaMask.io.
