Where can I get ELIX?
Where can I get Ether?
You can buy some Ether using cash using Coinbase. If you already have Bitcoin, you can trade it for Ether on Kucoin and use that same account to buy ELIX.
Can I send Elixir to my Ethereum wallet?
Yes. ELIX is an Ethereum token, and therefore can be transferred using an Ethereum wallet.
What is a pass phrase?
A passphrase is a secret series of words that you use to access your wallet.
Should I share my pass phrase with anyone or send it over any digital channels?
What types of projects can I crowdfund using the ELIX app?
Almost anything you want! If you need ideas for Boost, think about projects for crypto podcasts, wallets, games, smart contract development, crypto summaries, or even customized accessories. We don’t support ICOs or token offerings for various reasons at this time.
Is the app available for both iOS and Android?
Yes. Just search for ELIX on both the Apple and Google Play Stores. The only place the ELIX iOS app isn’t available is in China, due to Apple’s policies.
What happens if a project reaches its funding goal?
If the minimum goal of a project is reached, funding is dispersed to the creator and host (ELIX, LLC) via a smart contract.
If a project doesn’t reach its funding goal, are backers refunded?
What are the fees?
There are currently no fees other than gas fees for requesting loans. The crowdfunding platform takes a 5-10% cut currently depending on the currency used.
What do I get for backing a project?
If a project has rewards, you can see a description of the reward offered by that creator.
How do I know I’ll receive my reward?
ELIX does not yet have any insurance for rewards, but this is a possibility in the future. The best way to judge a project is by the effort shown by the creator, and any background information and past history of that creator.
Why does it take some time for transactions or actions to be shown in the app?
The Ethereum network requires all transactions to be mined, or included in the blockchain. Because it takes some time for transactions to confirm, there might be a slight delay when using functionalities in the app that interact with smart contracts. You can always view your address on third party services like Etherscan if you want to see more information about pending transactions.
