I was wondering if anyone here might be able to help me with an issue I’m having trying to claim my PDC assets. I’m trying to get them to be ERC20 tokens. I’ve got as far as burning the coins and now they are claimable and to do so I need to send data via the etherium network but it seems to just fail every time I try. Here’s what it says on the PDC site that I need to do:
“Calling the contract is done by sending a transaction that contains data. The transaction does not transact Ether. However, a transaction incurs a fee. Make sure the Ethereum address has sufficient Ether balance.”
I’m using myetherwallet to send the data. I tried twice but it failed twice.
I set the gas initially to 21988, and the second time round to 53000. Do you know if I need to increase it? Here are the transactions:
Oh right. I was DMing him. I actually got to the final point, too, but have been delaying it for reasons like this (like cost, and also I’ve never familiarized myself with Ethereum). I’m unsure what this says about the easiness of the potential MAID ERC20 swap, or what can be learned from it [to make it easier if possible, though it’s already fairly easy, except for the willingness to pay such big fees, which I was also warned about by Dimitar, on top of learning to personally securely deal with Ethereum itself].
Hi, I am at the same stage trying to convert my PDC coins to ERC20 coins. I used m D’cent wallet Eth address, but I can not add data contract to the send transaction to do the conversion. Can anybody tell
how to do this transaction on the D’cent wallet app.
In fact, there is another way. It should not matter whether you Call the Contract from your D’cent wallet or from another software wallet. @Seneca can you tell is it matter from which wallet you send the message to the Contract? Can @switch01 create a new wallet and Call the Contract with it?
Just a heads up to those using a ledger wallet to claim PDC. Blind signing must be enabled which means the entirety of your Eth assets are at risk when calling the contract. I believe Seneca is a good actor but a bad actor could use ‘blind signing’ to access everything on your wallet. So for peace of mind I’d suggest using a secondary eth deposit address with no other assets.
