Bonus calculation: each stage of the project offers a different bonus which is automatically calculated and included in the conversion.

Currently, the presale is offering a 40% bonus. This can be seen in the ETH to LCS conversion: 1 ETH = 2,500 LCS + 40% bonus = 3,500 LCS.

How to set up a MEW and MetaMask wallet

In order to be able to receive LCS Cryptoshares you will need an ERC20 compatible Ethereum wallet. Our personal recommendation is MyEthereumWallet (MEW) or MetaMask.

Setting up a MyEthereumWallet

Step 1 First you will need to set up a new MyEthereumWallet. This video tutorial shows the processing of setting up a new MEW wallet.

Make sure you follow each prompt thoroughly as you will be asked to assign keys given sensitive data needed to access and protect your wallet.

Step 2 Once you have a MEW wallet, you will need to add LCS as a custom token. To do so, you will need to click the following on the MEW website:
