How to purchase LCS Cryptoshares

Step 1 Select desired cryptocurrency to purchase LCS Cryptoshares. This example uses Ethereum.


Step 2 A unique deposit address will be generated for you to send your cryptocurrency to. Either copy the payment address or scan the QR code to initiate the payment.


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.
