If you own a BLKX miner then your machine will be connected to your Metamask account. In order to receive your BLKX Rewards from the miner, you are going to need some Ether (ETH) in your Metamask account for the gas fees. Whether you bought ETH on the BlockX Exchange, another exchange, or are receiving it from a friend, here's how you get ETH into that address. Pick the one that applies to you below:
I Bought ETH From An Exchange & Want to Transfer to MetaMask
Log in to your Metamask account and make sure you are in the proper account where you are receiving BLKX tokens. You can find your MetaMask address under "account name" (in the format 0x12r45...6HJ9). Copy that by clicking on it. It will say "copy to clipboard."
Go to your existing wallet (either your cold wallet or your exchange wallet where you have the ETH) and find the "send" option. Paste your MetaMask public account address there and click send.
I Want to Send ETH from MyBlockX to MetaMask
- Go to "withdraw" (the icon with the single up arrow) and select "Crypto from wallet"
- Select ETH as the coin you want to withdraw, the amount, and paste in the Metamask address you are sending it to.
- Click review and confirm and your funds are on their way
I Want to Buy ETH Directly On MetaMask
You can easily buy Ethereum with a debit card or Apple Pay directly within MetaMask by clicking on your ETH account in MetaMask and clicking “Buy." From there you can connect your bank account to Wyre or Transak. Follow the prompts given there and it will be deposited into your MetaMask.
I Want to Receive ETH From a Friend
You can request funds from a friend by sending them a payment request showing your QR code in person or by sharing your public address. Find your public address under "account name" (in the format 0x12r45...6HJ9). Copy that by clicking on it. It will say "copy to clipboard." Now you can send that to them via email, text, or other.
Use your QR code by clicking "Buy" and going to "Directly Deposit ETH." Here you can copy your QR code and send it to someone, or they can scan it right there. You'll also be able to see your public address there as well to copy, paste, and send.
I Am Doing This From My Mobile
On the mobile app, tap the menu button (top right), then click Wallet. Select a token or collectible then click Send or Recieve.
