  1. Go to (Grantcoin signups are processed with technology built by Ekata Social, a new social media platform.)

  9. Check your phone for an SMS message with a code. Enter the code on Ekata. Click Submit.
  10. Upload an image of yourself. If your automated phone verification didn’t work (i.e. if you didn’t receive an SMS in the previous step), we’ll need a scan of your photo ID (e.g. driver’s license or passport). Otherwise, any photo showing your face is fine. Click Submit.
  11. When your Grantcoin account is approved, you will receive an email with your referral code to give to others. If you don’t get the email immediately, that means the system triggered a manual review, and Grantcoin staff will review your application for approval within one week.
