Please note: If you have bought your product from a reseller there is no activation but you still need to follow other instructions to check the hologram for tampering.
Before activation, be sure to examine your products for any traces of tampering. The image on the right shows a picture of a partially opened product. Notice the honeycomb-shaped marks on the right side
of the product? If you witness any of these markings, there is a chance the product may have been compromised.
After checking the products for possible tampering, head to denarium.com/activate to start the activation process. Fill in the activation code received by email and the shipment code from the user manual, which is delivered with the order.
The page will display your products. Please select the right status for each product. If any of the products were damaged or missing, click on the corresponding buttons. We will contact you as soon as possible and will not proceed to fund the products with a status damaged or missing. If there are no signs of tampering, and the hologram is intact, select the ‘good’ status.
Check the serial number of each product, and make sure the serial number on the product is the same as on the activation page. The serial numbers always start with a letter E, L or A.
You can leave us feedback or suggestions on the activation page for improvement. With a Bitcoin address, it is possible to view the balance of a specific product, and you need it to add funds to your product. After you have verified all of the products, complete the activation by pressing the ‘Submit’ button. If you have ordered L-series products, we will fund them with bitcoins after the activation within 48 hours. Do not remove the hologram yourself, unless you want to spend the bitcoins.
Our latest products are protected by high-tech CertiLine BarCard® package. It protects the hologram from tampering activities, making apparent any forgery and counterfeiting attempts. When the BarCard® is opened a strong security pattern will be displayed on the internal surface of both card halves. Undetected reuse or reassembly of the package will not be possible.
1. Bitcoin address of the product is visible on the back side as a QR-code, and the barcard packaging can function as a wallet card even after removing the product
2. Denarium hologram on the package is the evidence of a genuine Denarium product
3. The product is visible from both sides, but still protected by clear plastic surface
4. The first eight characters of your bitcoin address are visible within the window on the hologram
Adding funds to your product
You can easily add more bitcoins to your product, just like any other bitcoin wallet. Our wallet cards are supported by Bitcoin ATMs all across the world.
Simply find the Bitcoin address of your product, either from the provided mini address card, by scanning the QR code, from the activation page or Denarium Database, and send the desired amount of bitcoins using a wallet of your choice.You can also buy bitcoins directly to your product from any Bitcoin exchange.
Always make sure the bitcoin addresses correspond and make an extra check. See if the first eight characters of your bitcoin address are the same as the ones located in the hologram window.
The Denarium Database (denarium.com/database) allows you to explore the status and find the bitcoin address of every Denarium Bitcoin ever produced. You can search products with a serial number or with the eight first bits, located in the hologram window.With a Bitcoin address, it is possible to view the balance of a specific product, and you need it to add funds to your product.
Did you know?
That your bitcoin address, also known as a public address, is for receiving and storing personal bitcoins? It is the equivalent of a bank account number.
Your private key, on the other hand, you can compare with your online banking credentials. You need your private key to be able to transfer your bitcoins out from your public address, so take care not to share it with others.
Spending your product
Bitcoins are securely stored within the Denarium product. To spend the bitcoins within you need to transfer them from the product to a Bitcoin wallet. The transfer is made by opening the hologram sticker and importing the private key underneath to the wallet of your choice. Please note that an opened hologram sticker implies that the product has been spent. The hologram sticker cannot be put back after opening so it should not be removed without the intent to spend the bitcoins.
- Open the hologram.
- The private key (which gives the rights to spend the bitcoins within) is shown in two formats: as a QR-code and as plain text.
- Scan the QR-code with Bitcoin wallet software (such as Mycelium for android, and Breadwallet for iOS), or type the private key if you cannot scan the QR-code.
