Chiliz or $CHZ is a cryptocurrency for the Chiliz Blockhain and the in-app currency that powers the Socios.com app. You'll need $CHZ in your wallet first before you can exchange them for Fan Tokens.
There are two ways to add $CHZ to your wallet:
- Buy $CHZ with a payment card straight from the app.
- Transferring in $CHZ from cryptocurrency exchanges or wallets.
Follow these steps for each method:
Buying $CHZ from the app
The quickest way to buy $CHZ is with a payment card through the app. It's easy and safe, just like any online purchase.
- From the home screen, tap ‘$CHZ’ or tap 'Wallet' and then 'Top up'.
- Choose the amount you want to spend and tap 'Proceed to payment'.
- Choose one of our payment providers and tap 'Buy'.
- Enter your payment details and tap 'Pay now'.
The available balance in your wallet will update to show the added $CHZ you purchased. (there may be a slight delay while your $CHZ balance is updated)
Transferring in $CHZ from cryptocurrency exchanges or wallets
If you have $CHZ on a cryptocurrency exchange or an external wallet, you can transfer them to your Socios.com wallet. You'll first need to get your Socios.com $CHZ address, a string of letters and numbers from your wallet before you can make a transfer.
Follow these steps to get your Socios.com $CHZ wallet address:
- From the home screen, tap 'Wallet'.
- Tap ‘Receive’.
- From the list of tokens, choose $CHZ.
- Tap 'Copy'
- Paste your Socios.com $CHZ address into your exchange or wallet.
This is the destination address for your transfer that you'll need to copy and paste into your exchange or wallet to complete your transfer.
Remember, blockchain transactions are permanent and irreversible.
- Sending the wrong tokens to your Socios.com $CHZ address will permanently lose your tokens. Only send $CHZ to this address.
- Sending tokens to the incorrect address will result in the permanent loss of your tokens.
- Your $CHZ address is an ERC-20 address. Choose ERC-20 (Ethereum) as a network when sending $CHZ to your Socios.com $CHZ address. Using any other network will permanently lose your tokens.
