So you're interested in Pascal? There are few things you should know before you get started.

Wallets vs. Accounts

Like most cryptocurrencies, Pascal has a wallet which stores a series of cryptographic Key-Pairs. Key-pairs are comprised of a Private Key and a Public Key. The most important thing you need to know is that you need to protect your Private Key. Don't lose it! Without it, you can't access your Pascals. Don't share it! If someone else gets hold of your Private Key, they have access to your coins!

Unlike most cryptocurrencies, Pascal (PASC) isn't stored directly against your Public Key. Instead, Pascals and transactions are stored against a Pascal account (PASA), and accounts are stored against your Public Key.

You may give other people your Public Key, but usually only to transfer or assign a PASA. If someone wants to send you PASC, you only need to give them the PASA number you want Pascals sent to.

Now that you understand the basics, it's time to setup your wallet and get your first Pascals!

Get Your First PASA

Your wallet is ready to go but you need your first Pascal account (PASA). There are many ways to obtain your first PASA. Please note since the commoditization of PASAs is essential for Pascal's ingenious infrastructure, one may need to purchase a PASA at an inexpensive price and/or obtain a free PASA through nontraditional means.

Using the Pay-to-key feature

The ‘Pay-to-key’ protocol allows users obtain a pascal account automatically from a pool of floating accounts. Floating accounts are newly mined and existing accounts listed for sale on the pascal network. To get a Pascal account using the feature; your public key has to be encrypted in to trigger an account purchase operation.

  • In your desktop wallet, click ‘Operations’ tab.
  • In the ‘Destination account’ input area, enter your details as follows: @[“your public key”]
  • In the ‘amount’ tab, enter an amount (in Pasc) equivalent to the current price of floating accounts
  • In the ‘Payload’ section, select ‘encrypted with destination public key’
  • Click ‘Execute’ to complete this operation

Congrats, Your new account is on the way!

In-wallet PASA distribution service

The Blaise wallet allows users to obtain Pascal accounts directly in their wallet. You basically borrow an account from distribution service and claim complete ownership of this account by sending at least 0.25 Pasc to your new address within 72 hours.

To obtain an account:

  • In your wallet, click ‘Get an Account’ from the bottom corner of your wallet
  • Click ‘Borrow an account’ from the next option
  • Now click ‘Receive’, copy your new address and send at least 0.25 pasc to your wallet within 72 hours to claim full ownership of the new account

Get Some PASC

Now that you have your own PASA, it's time to put some PASC in it!

Purchasing PASC

There are a number of exchanges available to purchase PASC with more being added in the future. Many don't allow you to purchase with regular currency, so you may need purchase alternate coins like Bitcoin or Ethereum first and then exchange them for PASC.

Once you have purchased PASC on an exchange, it's just a matter of transferring it to your new PASA. Remember you only have to use your PASA number(s) for transfers, not your Public Key. It's that simple!

The following exchanges are available for purchasing PASC:
