Frequently asked questions
If you’re new to cryptocurrency, we are here to help.
What do I need to get started?
To get started, you’ll need to register for an account on LiveAuctioneers.com. Once signed up, install MetaMask and navigate to the account settings page on your LiveAuctioneers account. Click onto the Instant Approval tab and follow the steps to transfer Ethereum to your MetaMask wallet.
What is Ethereum and how do I acquire it?
Ethereum is the crypto currency that will be held in escrow. While there are a variety of exchanges that sell it, we would recommend purchasing through Coinbase.
What is escrow and how does it work?
Escrow is an intermediary third party account that holds funds and ensures that abiding parties meet their end of the obligation. With the Ethereum in escrow, auctioneers have a positive signal that you’re a well meaning buyer. The Ethereum is held in escrow indefinitely until you choose to release it. It can not be released if there are unpaid invoices or open disputes on your LiveAuctioneers account. With Ethereum in escrow, you will be autoapproved for all auctions who accept cryptocurrency as a form of payment. Items won can be paid for in either fiat (dollars, euros etc) or in cryptocurrency. Funds in escrow are not applied towards the balance of your invoices.
