Credit digital securities in client-side mode


Please make sure that the following prerequisites are met. Otherwise, you might not be able to complete the process:

  • You have set up your Ledger Nano S device. If not have a look into the setup guide.

  • Your wallet has sufficient Ether credit to pay the transaction fees (currently approx. 0.005 ETH for 10 issues).

Initiate the issuance process

If these requirements are met, you will see a button on the right for the particular investment. Click on this button with the label "Send digital securities to investor":

The software now searches for your connected Ledger Nano S. Connect the Ledger Nano S to the computer:

Enter your PIN-code on the Ledger Nano S and navigate to the Ethereum app. The software will now recognize your wallet and perform a security check.

Commit the issuance transaction

Now check the number of securities and the investor's address. The transactions cannot be reversed after sending them.

In the background simultaneously, we check that the investment has gone through, and the investor provided a valid address.

Click the button "Send digital securities":

The transaction will now be sent to the Ethereum network. You can check the status of the transaction at any time.

The digital securities have been credited to the investor's account as soon as this status indicates "Success":

Complete the deployment setup (if this is your first issuance)

If this is your first interaction with your token smart contract, you will need to confirm that this token smart contract is yours. Click on the "Complete token setup" button to do this:

Check the data of your token again and then click on "Complete setup":

You can check the status of the transaction through our service provider Etherscan. Wait until the transaction has been completed successfully. Then click on "Back to the crediting of the securities".

First, please make sure that the device is connected to your Laptop, you have unlocked the device with your PIN and you have entered the installed Ethereum Application on the Ledger Device.

If this is the case, check if the setting "Contract Data" is set to "Yes" on your Ledger Nano S:

  1. Open the Ethereum app on the Nano S ledger.

  2. Go to "Settings" (left and right button to scroll, both at the same time to confirm)

  3. Continue to "Contract Data" (again left and right button to scroll and confirm both at the same time)

  4. Scroll to "Yes" and confirm with both buttons simultaneously.

  5. You will then automatically exit the menu item "Contract Data" and find yourself again in the settings.

This may also be necessary after you have updated the Ledger device or the Ethereum application.

Some Windows versions did not support the use of the Ledger device. These issues should be fixed by now. If you are experiencing problems try to update the Ledger device as well as the Ethereum app. You may then need to enable contract data again (see above).
