How To Create A Navigate Account
Please note, that Navigate is currently unable to offer our services to individuals in countries not listed in the drop-down list.
Now we just need somewhere to send your tokens and the future rewards you will earn as you contribute to Navigate Maps. Since NVG8 is an ERC-20 digital token, it needs to be sent to and stored in a digital wallet.
If you already have a wallet, you can connect through MetaMask. In order to access your wallet on the Navigate platform, the MetaMask extension should be installed on your browser.
TIP: This extension is not supported by Safari
Once MetaMask is installed and you are logged in to your account, make sure you are active on the Polygon Network or Arbitrum One Network.
You can add the Polygon Network by clicking on ‘Add Network’ in the MetaMask extension dropdown menu. If you have not used the Polygon Network on your MetaMask account before, visit the link below for information on the network and how to add it to your account: https://wiki.polygon.technology/docs/develop/metamask/config-polygon-on-metamask/#polygon-scan
Follow the same process to add the Arbitrum Network. If you have have not used Arbtirum on your MetaMask account before, visit the link below for information on the network and how to add it to your account:
Now that you have your MetaMask account active and have it set to the Polygon or Arbitrum One network, you are ready to connect to the Navigate Platform!
Just press Connect With Metamask on the screen above and voilà, you have created a new Navigate account!
If you don’t have a wallet, no problem! We’ve got you covered.
When you sign up for a Navigate account, we can help create a wallet for you in just a few clicks with a third-party wallet provider, Sequence. Here’s how:
To get started, click “Create A Wallet With Sequence”.
From there, you should see a Sequence form that pops up with the email you recently provided. Press “Continue” to generate your new, unique wallet.
Once you continue, you should receive an email from Sequence ([email protected]) with a verification link. In that email, click “Sign in to Sequence”. From there, you will be redirected to a verification page that prompts you to fill out a confirmation code, like the image below.
To confirm your email, insert the code that is showing on the previous pop up. If the code is correct, you should be all logged in and good to return back to the Navigate contributor portal, and will be directed to your dashboard! Voilà, you have created a new Navigate account and wallet!
TIP: Be sure to check out our documentation on wallets to learn more about how your rewards are stored, and how to access your Sequence account.
Once your Wallet is connected, you will be navigated to your dashboard. This dashboard is specific to your unique Navigate account and wallet address!
Now you can start uploading and earning more NVG8.
You can visit the profile page at any time to add a username and profile image. This step is totally optional, and will make your account more personalized to you!
If you want to log out of the Navigate data upload web application, just simply disconnect your wallet. When you are ready to start contributing again, just follow the prompts to log back in with either your MetaMask wallet or the Sequence wallet you just created!
