This is a step-by-step guide on how to buy Metabase tokens.
A very important note before we begin. We will never contact you directly about the pre-sale or ICO. We will keep everyone updated via email and will never ask you to send us any money or ETH via social media or email. Be aware that there are scammers everywhere trying to trick you into sending cryptocurrency to the wrong address. Please be vigilant. If you have any doubt, you can reach out to the team at [email protected]
Follow these steps to buy Metabase tokens.
What You’ll Need
In order to purchase your Meta tokens you will need:
- ID (identity card, passport, driving license).
- Proof of Address (utility bill, bank statement from the last 3 months).
- ETH wallet to receive ERC-20 tokens.
- Credit card or ETH to buy the tokens.
What currencies can I use to purchase META?
You can use Ether (ETH), or your credit card to purchase META in Fiat.
The tokens you will receive after payment are ERC-20 tokens with the symbol MBT, which you can start trading after the usage restriction period. When the Metabase main net launches, all the MBT tokens you hold will be converted to META tokens for use on the Metabase Network.
What is an ETH Wallet?
An ETH wallet functions like a bank account. Except there is no bank to manage your account. You manage your wallet yourself.
Why do I need an ETH Wallet?
In order to receive your Metabase tokens, you need an ERC20 compatible wallet.
What ETH wallets can I use?
There are several ETH wallets you can use. Popular choices are MyEtherWallet and MetaMask.
How do I setup my ETH wallet?
IMPORTANT NOTE: Phishing attacks are very common. Make sure you are visiting the correct website by typing out the website address yourself. Do not click on links people send you to access MyEtherWallet.
Can I send Ether from an exchange or a smart contract?
No, DO NOT send crypto from an exchange or from a Smart contract.

Returning purchases and buying more META
Once you have made a purchase, you can log back into your account anytime to purchase more META. Having an account means you don’t have to fill in all your details again. Look out for an email in your inbox from @mailer.metabase.network to set a password for your account.
