What If You Do Not Have Ether

If your wallet needs Ether, we recommend using a credit card. However, if you are interested in pursuing bidding with Ether, you can do it following these steps:

Plan Ahead

  • Plan ahead. It will take 3-5 business days for your funds to clear

Head over to Coinbase

  • Head over to Coinbase and start the Sign Up Process.

  • A government-issued photo ID (no passport cards) is required.

Buy Ether

  • Click on the buy/sell button located on the top right of your browser

  • Select payment method. We recommend using Bank Account ACH or Wire Transfer

Transfer Funds to Your Wallet

  • Copy your wallet address

  • Access your Coinbase account and click the Send/Receive button on the top right

  • Enter the amount you want to transfer and paste your wallet address in the “To” field

Keep in Mind

If You are Outbid

You will be notified and funds returned to you immediately.

Associated Fees

When placing a bid on the Ethereum network, there are transaction fees associated with your purchase. These gas fees vary in price due to network congestion.

Credit Card

As a crypto-native platform, all our credit card transactions are on chain. If you are the winner of the NFT, LiveArt supplies you with a temporary wallet address. You transfer your NFT from this wallet to your desired wallet at any point by clicking the “claim” on your NFT.

All contributions in excess of the fair market value of the evening ($200 per person for cocktails and dinner) are tax-deductible within the limits prescribed by law.
