1.3. Download Keystore file

  • Click on the “Download Keystore File” button.
  • The file will be downloaded to your computer.

This is a digital signature file for your wallet. This file contains your private and public keys and is required every time you want to access your account.

2. Buy ETH

You can buy ETH for any fiat currencies (e.g., USD, RUB, etc.) on any cryptoexchange (e.g., Coinbase.com, Kraken.com, poloniex.com, Cex.io). Also you can buy ETH for other cryptocurrencies (e.g., BTC, Dash, etc.) using exchange services.

The easiest way to buy ETH is to buy for USD using an exchange service (e.g., https://xchange.cash, https://60cek.com/, http://lykke.com, https://localethereum.com/, https://www.bestchange.com). Here is an example of using the BestChange service.

  • Go to https://www.bestchange.com
  • In the “Give” column select the payment method, e.g. “Visa/MasterCard USD”.
  • In the “Get” column select “Ethereum (ETH)”.

  • Select the exchanger with the best rate and go to it.

Follow the instructions of the selected exchanger and refill your ETH-wallet.
Please note that when you purchase PKT tokens, a small commission will be charged, so you should refill your wallet by a little more than you plan to spend on PKT tokens.


3. Buy PKT tokens

As of June 2018, PKT tokens are available on the following exchanges:

  • MERCATOX (withdrawal commission – 2 PKT)
  • HitBTC (withdrawal commission – 40 PKT)
  • COINEXCHANGE (withdrawal commission – 1 PKT)
  • IDEX (withdrawal commission – commission in ETH in accordance with transaction parameters)
  • EtherDelta (withdrawal commission – commission in ETH in accordance with transaction parameters)
  • Yobit.net (withdrawal commission – 10 PKT)

A detailed description of purchasing PKT on each of the listed exchanges can be found in the Instructions.

After buying PKT on the exchange, transfer the tokens to your ETH wallet created in step 1. You can also transfer tokens from the exchange directly to the Playkey wallet (see step 6.4 for how to find out the wallet address. In this case you should skip 5-6 steps and go forward to the step 7).

These instructions show an example of withdrawing PKT from the exchange https://mercatox.com. On other exchanges, the steps to withdraw funds are identical.

  • In the PKT line click «Withdraw» button. A PKT withdrawal form will open:

  • In the “Amount” field, enter the amount of PKT to transfer. The “Transaction fee” field shows the fee for withdrawal from the exchange.
