How to participate in the Aventus sale (Using the Mist Wallet)

11 Jul 2017

In this guide, we are going to show you how to participate in the Aventus sale. We have created a basic guide on what you need to do in order to prepare for the AVT sale which includes creating a wallet, purchasing Ether and sending it to an address which will be provided publicly on Aventus website later on.

Aventus will only provide the ETH address on its website, type in the URL yourself to avoid any potential scam hyperlink redirects and ensure once entered that the website url has 'https://' in it. (Side note: Do not under any circumstances go to an ETH address sent out via slack, email, or any other medium, there are many scammers and Aventus will only provide the TRUE address on the aforementioned website.)

This guide is similar to the "How to participate in the Aventus sale" guide, but uses the Mist wallet, instead of MyEtherWallet.
