How to participate in the ICO

This is a short guide for you to clarify, how to participate in our ICO. We will guide you step by step to create an Ethereum wallet and to whitelist (this is just a registration process with your e-mail address and your Ethereum wallet address before you can participate for the ICO).



How to get Ether

First of all you need Ether (ETH) to participate in our ICO. We recommend Coinbase or BitPanda to buy ETH as this is the easiest way to get ETH. Here you will find a short and easy to understand guide how to create a Coinbase Account and buy your first ETH.

How to generate your Ethereum Wallet

To participate in the Cultural Places ICO you need to have an Ethereum wallet with some ETH on it. In the next step you have to transfer ETH from your Ethereum wallet to our ICO Ethereum address and in exchange you will receive Cultural Coins.

Please note: Don’t transfer your ETH directly from an exchange like Coinbase, Bitpanda, Bitfinex etc. , since in that case all your ETH are lost!

We recommend to use the secure and easy to use MyEtherWallet to participate in our ICO, as outlined below.

Go to – double check if you are using the right URL.

we recommend to use a strong password with at least 9 characters (a combination of uppercase, lowercase, special characters and numbers) and click on “Create New Wallet”.

Save your Keystore file locally on your device and immediately create a backup on an external storage (just to be save). Afterwards click on “I understand. Continue”.

Now you are able to see your Private Key. Write it down on a piece of paper or print it out. Hide it somewhere, where nobody else can find it and never lose it or give it away!

Never share your private key!
If you send your public key (address) to someone, they can send you ETH or other Ethereum based tokens. ?
If you send your private key to someone, they now have full control of your account. ?

Afterwards klick on “Save Your Address”.  Now you are able access your Ethereum wallet with your Keystore file and your password.

Select your Keystore file and type in in your password to unlock your Ethereum wallet.

Congrats! You have successfully created your Ethereum wallet and are now able to participate on the Cultural Places ICO!

How can you send your ETH from Coinbase to your MyEtherWallet

Since it is not possible to directly participate in our ICO by transfering ETH  from an exchange to our smart contract address, you first have to send some ETH from an exchange like Coinbase to your Ethereum wallet.

Please note: Don’t transfer your ETH directly from an exchange like Coinbase, Bitpanda, Bitfinex etc. , since in that case all your ETH are lost!

Go to and log into your account.

To send ETH from Coinbase to your MyEtherWallet you have to click on “Accounts”.



Click on the ETH column on “Send” and send some ETH from Coinbase to the public address of your Ethereum wallet (MyEtherWallet). A pop-up form will appear, where you can insert the public address of your Ethereum wallet. Type in the amount of ETH you want to transfer and finish the transaction.




A transaction can take between 5 minutes to 1 hour to be processed and your ETH will be visible in your Ethereum wallet. – please be aware of this fact.

How to get whitelisted and contribute to the ICO

Go to and fill out all the required information to participate in the Cultural Places ICO. It is possible to participate with Bitcoin (BTC) or with ETH. In both cases it is mandatory to submit the address to your Ethereum wallet during the registration.

In the next step we will validate your submitted information and will send you a notification once this it done.

You will receive an e-mail notification, after being successfully whitelisted for the ICO.  Click on “Contribute Now!” to get forward to the next step.

You will be forwarded to our Ethereum address for the ICO.

Now go back to and unlock your Ethereum Wallet.


After this Step you need to login again as in the previous steps already explained. The next page you’ll see is this one:

Now copy the address for the ICO from above in the  in the row “To Address”, type in the amount from the registration, increase the Gas Limit to 200.000 and click on “Generate Transaction” and send your ETH to participate in the ICO.
