Before moving to the Production Environment you should have complete the activities in the following checklist.



Move to Production Checklist
Activities
Rationale

Complete the following in Sandbox:

  • Mint Tokens

  • Set Admins

  • Set up transactions

  • Use the Test App to test transactions


Before moving to the OST Platform Production Environment, you should have completed testing in the Sandbox Environment. Testing is complete when you have gone through the whole process of setting up a Brand Token, setting Platform administrators, and tested earn and spend transactions. For guides and instructions on using OST Platform please reference the OST Developer Resources.
Set up metamask and an account owner address

MetaMask provides a browser plugin to create an Ethereum-based wallet and to sign transactions with an existing Ethereum address. You will need to use MetaMask to sign various setup transactions and to receive an initial allotment of OST-Test in the Sandbox Environment. 


The Account Owner Address is the address associated with your OST account during initial set-up, this must be your hardware wallet address in the Production Environment. You will not be able to sign any admin transactions without this key.


Connect a trezor or ledger hardware wallet to metamask
In OST Platform’s Production Environment, you will be required to connect either of two widely used hardware wallets, Trezor or Ledger, to your MetaMask account for an additional layer of security.

Forecast and allocate sufficient funds for minting your initial Brand Tokens OST+ETH

Token economies are financed upfront as creation of Brand Tokens requires staking of an equivalent amount of OST. An insufficient stake will prevent your customers from receiving tokens they have earned and negatively impact. It is the Brand Token creator’s responsibility to project funding requirements for their economy and maintain adequate funds to reward users.


A minimum of 100 OST in your MetaMask account is required to begin the stake and mint process. Branded Tokens are created by staking OST are on Ethereum Mainnet. So make sure you have enough ETH in your Metamask to pay gas for the transactions. We recommend at least 0.0015 ETH.


Set up 2FA

Launching in the Production Environment requires use of 2FA set up through an authenticator app like Google Authenticator.

Two Factor Authentication (2FA) is an extra layer of security used to make sure that people trying to gain access to an online account are who they say they are.
