Donate to support development

Other ways to help

There are many other ways to help the Ethereum network. If you like meeting people and organizing events, you can set up a Meetup near you. If you prefer staying at home, you can volunteer at answering technical questions at our Stack Exchange or helping newcomers at Reddit forum. And you can always help the network by running a full node client or a Miner and sharing your statistics at the network stats dashboard.

But the best way to truly help ethereum adoption is to go out there and build something awesome!

If you have already donated

Here's how to watch (and play with) your unicorns

You can use the Ethereum Wallet to keep an eye on the foundation donation tip box and to keep your unicorns safe. Download the latest Wallet release and set up a wallet.

First you might need to add the Unicorn Token to your watch list, as Unicorns are sometimes invisible. Scroll to the bottom and click Watch Token. Add the address 0x89205A3A3b2A69De6Dbf7f01ED13B2108B2c43e7 and the remaining information will be loaded automatically. Click Ok and your token will be added. Now you need to get one!

Invisible Unicorns

On the same page, scroll a bit up and click on Watch contract. Put Ethereum Foundation Tip Box (or anything else) as a name, 0xfB6916095ca1df60bB79Ce92cE3Ea74c37c5d359 as address and then add this code as the Interface:

Watch the foundation

This will add it to your watch list. Clicking on it will take you to the contract page where you can keep an eye on how the foundation is dealing with these donations. There on the left column you can see all the public information on the contract, like the price of a unicorn token in thousandths of an ether (Also called the "finney"), or the minimum amount of minutes a proposal must stay visible before it can be executed (currently 24 hours).

Keep an eye on the foundation tip jar

On this page, if you feel like contributing more ethers, click on the Deposit Ether button on the top and donate any amount you want. If you send over the limit of a unicorn price (currently at 2.014 ether), then you'll get one or more unicorns!

First ever Unicorn Token Transaction

If you want to send your unicorn to someone else, or maybe even to a wallet for safekeeping, it's very easy: just go to the Send tab, select the account you own a unicorn from and your unicorn token will appear under your "ether" and any other currency you own.
