The best way to confirm ownership of an Ethereum address is to create a signed message from that wallet. We will go over the steps to create a signed messaged from a wallet you own.

*NOTE: please generate a new wallet address for token swap verification

Signing a message using MyCrypto [preferred]

  1. Visit https://mycrypto.com/sign-and-verify-message/sign

  2. Select how you want to access your wallet.

  3. After accessing your wallet the interface will show a "Sign Message" button. Write the          message you would like to sign. 

  4. For Eximchain's Token Verification you will only need to copy the value after "sig". Your signature should begin with "0x...". Do not include any quotes or other characters.

Signing a message using MyEtherWallet

We will be using MyEtherWallet (MEW) https://www.myetherwallet.com/ to create a signed message. Because of MEW's popularity it has been a target of phishing attacks. Always check that you are on the correct website by examining the url before inputing any sensitive data into a website. MEW should have an SSL certificate and look similar to the image below:

4. After accessing your wallet the interface will show a "Sign Message" button. Write the message you would like to sign. Specific messages where you identify yourself and the purpose of the message are best as they can not be easily reused.

 

5. Click "Sign Message". You have generated a signed message, verifying that you own the wallet address used. Copy this signature and use share it with anyone at anytime to prove you control this wallet. If you are completing the Eximchain Token Swap Verification process, copy this message and paste it in the appropriate input on that site.
