If you attended the Hedera18 conference, you likely received an HBAR mainnet early access card and associated white PIN card. Please note: the white PIN card is no longer required. Cardholders have HBAR earnings caps that are larger than others participating in the community testing program:
For HBAR early access mainnet card holders, the maximum number of hbars you can earn is 4,000 (~$480 USD*).
A small number of HBAR early access mainnet card holders have 8,000 hbars (~$960 USD*) as the maximum amount which can be earned. These HBAR early access mainnet card holders were the very first to purchase a Hedera18 conference ticket.
HBAR early access mainnet cards can be inputted after January 1st, 2019. To activate your card and increase your cap you must have set up your Hedera Wallet and enter your HBAR mainnet early access code in the Hedera Portal. Note: You do not need to keep or use your white PIN card code.
Earning your HBAR
Upon entering your HBAR mainnet card code into the Hedera Portal, after successful setup of your Hedera Portal and Hedera Wallet, your token cap will increase to 4,000 hbars.
Your increased token cap can be reached by performing micropayments using the Hedera Browser Extension, at rate of 5 hbar earnings per micropayment.
