The new TokenGen 4.0 update brings one of the best features the tool has yet to offer – a token crowdsale participation page available to every project. In this article, we will show you how you can use this feature in order to generate a landing page for your token generation event, which can then be used by your community members to purchase some of your precious tokens. Before we begin, an example TokenGen project landing page can be seen at https://tokengen.io/landing/example. Feel free to examine it and then get back to the tutorial.
Using the TokenGen Landing Page Feature
In order to have a landing page, a TokenGen projects needs to have the following requirements met:
- A build needs to be selected for the landing page.
- A deployment needs to be selected for the landing page.
- The project must have a unique identifier set.
- A URL needs to be provided for the token sale terms. Participants in the fundraiser need to agree to those before they can purchase tokens.
Providing the Necessary Details
The TokenGen 4.0 update introduces a lot of new project details that users can provide. The new ones include the aforementioned unique project identifier as well as many others (most of them representing links) including a link to the white paper of the project, a link to the Telegram group of the project, etc. So, in order to make the landing page for your project available, you need to at least provide a unique project identifier and a link to the token sale terms.
Of course, the more of these details you provide, the more complete the landing page will be. Speaking of a complete TokenGen landing page, here’s what one looks like presently:
The details we are talking about determine how the main menu on the top left side and the social media links on the top right side will look. The more details you provide, the more legitimate your project will look. As for the unique project identifier, it is a simple string that determines the URL where your landing page will be accessible. For example, if you set your unique project identifier to “example”, your project’s landing page will be available at “https://tokengen.io/landing/example”.
Selecting the Build & Deployment for the Landing Page
The last thing you need to do in order for the landing page to become active is to select a build and deployment. You can do so via the Manage Project interface in TokenGen:
As you already know, TokenGen allows unlimited builds for each project i.e. you can change the project details as many times as you want. This leads to the fact that, you need to select which build you want to be used for the landing page. And you can do so via the slider across each build. Of course, only one build can be selected for each project so if you select a new one, the previously selected build will be de-selected automatically.
The process is similar for the landing page deployment selection:
The TokenGen landing page will pull info directly from the selected deployment and build in order to generate the content. Keep in mind that builds and deployments are related in the sense that, each build has deployments. So, if you select a certain build, it needs to have deployments otherwise you won’t be able to select a deployment for the landing page.
If your project meets all of the requirements mentioned in the beginning of this article, you will be able to see the unique URL of your project’s landing page on both the Project Overview tab and the Public Projects Directory page. If your project doesn’t fully meet the requirements, you will be able to see what you need to do on the Project Overview tab.
Customizing The Look of Your Project’s Landing Page
As of now, you can customize only the accent color of your project’s landing page. You can do so using the Accent Color field on Project Details tab:
Here, you can also see all of the new details that come with the TokenGen 4.0 update i.e. the unique project identifier and the many links to project info pages and social media channels. As mentioned, you can currently customize only the accent color of the landing page however, we do have plans for future updates that will bring more customization options to the user.
And that’s pretty much how you generate a token crowdsale landing page for your project. Now, in another article, we will cover how people can use this landing page to participate in your fundraiser. Gone are the days when you need to provide your community with an Ethereum address where they can send ETH and receive tokens in return. That’s just not professional and extremely prone to scams.
Now, TokenGen provides a user interface that covers the entire token generation event – from you creating, deploying, and managing your smart contracts, to your community members participating in the ICO by the click of a button.
