Claiming EOS with private/public key


#1

Hi there

I bought EOS Tokens last year November. I saved my public and private EOS keys but somehow lost the Metamask details I had to connect with myetherwallet.

I have a new Metamask account but not the original I purchased the tokens with on the EOS distribution page.

Is there a way to claim my tokens using my new Metamask/myetherwallet account using the EOS public/private keys that I saved when i originally purchased them?

Any help would be greatly appreciated!
Thanks
Richard

I’m not entirely sure, but I don’t think you need to claim them (and I think its too late anyway). If I understand correctly, claiming them was only necessary if you wanted to sell the ERC20 tokens before launch, or move them to a different ETH address.

If you registered the account, unclaimed EOS will automatically move to the account you have the key pair for. (At least that was a claim I saw on EOS authority).
