Aktionariat offers a set of tools for Swiss companies to create a market for their digital shares on their own website.

Funding Your Wallet

If you choose to pay with cryptocurrencies when buying shares through the Aktionariat Brokerbot, you will need to have a cryptocurrency wallet endowed with funds.

Please make sure that you have already installed and finished setting up the Aktionariat App, which automatically creates a wallet  for you during its initial launch. Please refer to the “Setting Up Your Wallet” tutorial if you haven’t already done so.

This guide will walk you through the steps of transferring Ether (ETH) to your wallet (if you want to transfer ETH from Ethereum mainnet to Layer-2 Optimism network, check our documentation "Funding Your Wallet for Optimism). Aktionariat AG Shares (DAKS) can be bought using ETH or CryptoFrancs (XCHF). The types of accepted cryptocurrencies may differ by the company selling its shares, but the process to transfer them to your wallet before a purchase is identical.

There are 3 ways to have an account in the Aktionariat App that has the necessary funds to purchase shares:

  1. Transferring funds from an exchange or from another wallet
  2. Importing an account that already has ETH into the app
  3. Buying ETH in our app through or partner Bity.com

Transferring funds from an exchange or from another wallet

If you already have some funds on an exchange or another cryptocurrency wallet like MetaMask or Ledger, you can easily transfer them to your wallet created by the Aktionariat App.

You will simply need to take note of your Aktionariat app wallet address and specify it as the recipient when sending a transfer. Your wallet address is not an information that needs to be kept secret. It can be entered into websites or wallets that will initiate transfers to it. Your wallet address looks something like this:

0xF9005F6500639ade2ECA93d819eE938ea1B2E3bA

If you are transferring funds from a centralized exchange, such as Binance:
  • Go to the screen where you can make withdrawals to external addresses.
  • Select the coin that you want to withdraw, in this case ETH.
  • Enter your wallet address as the recipient.
  • Make sure that you have selected Ethereum as the network for your withdrawal.
  • Enter the amount you want to withdraw from the exchange to your wallet.
  • Confirm the transaction.

It may take a couple of minutes until your transaction is sent by the exchange and confirmed by the network. Afterwards, you should see the received funds in your Aktionariat app automatically.

If you are transferring funds from another wallet, such as MetaMask
  • Switch to the account where you want to send the funds from and click “Send”
  • Make sure “Ethereum Mainnet” is selected as the network you are operating on.
  • Enter your wallet address as the recipient. You may also want to add this address to your address book as “Aktionariat App Wallet” to easily make transfers in the future.
  • Select the amount you want to transfer and proceed to the confirmation screen.
  • Check your transaction one last time and confirm it if everything looks OK.

It may take a couple of minutes until your transaction is confirmed by the network. Afterwards, you should see the received funds in your Aktionariat app automatically.

Importing an account that already has ETH into the app

Although the Aktionariat app creates an initial wallet address for you, it also supports importing, tracking and using multiple Ethereum addresses. If you only want to track positions on an address, it is enough to import it just by its public address, without entering your private keys. However, if you want to sign transactions from that address (such as when making share purchases), you will need to import the address by its “Secret Recovery Phrase” or by its “Private Key”.

If you don’t know how to get your private key, check the documentation of your existing wallet to find out how it can be exported. In MetaMask, it is done by clicking on “Export Private Key” under the Account Details menu.

Please note that your Secret Recovery Phrase or Private Key should always remain secret. Never share it with anyone. Don’t copy/paste it into an e-mail and send it to yourself. An attacker who could gain access to your e-mails could then compromise your Ethereum wallet.

The keys that you enter into the Aktionariat app are stored securely on it and never leave your device.

Go to the Connect tab of the Aktionariat app and tap on “Import an Address”. Type in your phrase or your private key, give a name to your wallet and tap “Import”.

You should be able to see your new address under “All Ethereum Addresses” immediately.

Don’t worry if you don’t immediately see all your assets on the newly imported address in your portfolio. It can take a couple of minutes until our servers scan your address for new positions and add them to your portfolio.

Now you can select your imported address with the funds on it when connecting to our Brokerbot and use it to make purchases.

Buying ETH using our app through our partner Bity.com

Please first note that, when buying ETH inside our application, you are interacting directly with our partner Bity.com. Only Bity.com can help you with your inquiries about your order and its processing status.

Only ETH purchases up to 1’000 CHF at a time can be made, because of legal constraints.

  • In the Portfolio tab of the app, select Ether and tap on “BUY ETH”.
  • Enter the amount of CHF you want to send, from which IBAN you will be sending the transfer and select the recipient address. An exchange rate and the amount of ETH you expect to receive will automatically be calculated. Proceed to the next screen.
  • Check again the exchange rate and other costs associated with your order. Tap on “PLACE ORDER” to submit your order. You will need to sign a message to prove the recipient address belongs to you. Signing a message does not cost anything.
  • In the next screen, you will see that your order has been placed and your signature has been correctly submitted. Now you will need to transfer the necessary amount to Bity.com’s bank account.
  • Please make sure that you include the Message / Reference field in your bank transfer. If you fail to do so, your purchase may face additional delays or may be directly cancelled.
  • Once your bank transfer has been received by Bity.com, your order will automatically be processed, and the purchased ETH will arrive in your account.

In case you have additional questions or a support request, please directly get in touch with Bity.com support, using the link provided in the Order Details screen. Aktionariat has no way of helping you with your order.

Congratulations!

Once you have some funds in your Aktionariat app wallet, you are ready to connect to our Brokerbot and purchase shares directly using cryptocurrencies with instant settlements.

The process is also similar, even if you are transferring any other currency than ETH, such as a stablecoin. Nothing should go wrong, as long as your recipient address is entered correctly when making the transfer.

Please note that, even if you choose to pay with a stablecoin like XCHF, you will still need to have some ETH in your wallet to pay for the Ethereum network transaction costs.
