Intelligent Trading Foundation (ITF) is no longer in a position to continue active development of our full suite of products. However, our products will remain online and available for our users as long as possible. See more information here.
To access premium alerts and features offered by Intelligent Trading Foundation (ITF), users will need to purchase Intelligent Trading Tokens (ITT).
To purchase ITT tokens, you will need to purchase them from other people with Bitcoin (BTC) or Ethereum (ETH).
So, first you will need use fiat currency like USD to purchase Bitcoin (BTC) or Ethereum (ETH). Then you will need to use one of those cryptocurrencies to purchase ITT tokens.
The instructions below explain the entire process.
There are a number of ways to purchase cryptocurrencies with Fiat, however, one of the easiest is to register an account on a reputable Fiat exchange, such coinbase.com. This is one of the most well-known and trusted cryptocurrency exchanges with fiat.
Registration requires your name, email address, and a password.
Now that you have an account with Coinbase. You will need to connect your bank account before you can make a purchase.
Coinbase also allows you to link a debit card if you plan on completing smaller value orders.
Click the “Settings” tab at the top of the page. Then click the “Linked Accounts” tab.
Click the “Link a New Account” button and follow the on-screen prompts to add your payment method.
Also, please note that it can take up to 10 days to complete a transaction via bank transfer, and with a debit card it is instantaneous.
Now it’s time to purchase your Ethereum (ETH). Go the the “buy” section inside Coinbase and select the amount of Ethereum you want to order. You can choose any amount (1.0 ETH or 0.043 ETH or whatever), it’s up to you. Follow the on-screen instructions to complete your order.
After your order is complete you will be notified how long until your Ethereum is available in your account.
Now that you own Ethereum (ETH), you will need to transfer it to another cryptocurrency exchange where ITT tokens are traded.
Coss.io is a very good platform and is often considered an easier exchange to use (IDEX & ForkDelta are decentralized), so let’s choose that one.
Go to Coss.io and register an account. Create a username, enter your email address, and create a password.
After your registration is complete, Coss.io will show you your wallet address. This wallet address is what you give people so they know where to send coins to.
To see your wallet address, click the “Deposit” button at the top of the page.
Then click scroll down and click on the “ITT” icon.
After clicking on this icon, your wallet address will be shown to you.
Once you’ve found your public wallet address, copy it.
Go back to CoinBase.com. Navigate to the Accounts link in the main Navigation bar and select the “Send” button by the Ethereum section.
Then select the external digital currency wallet address you want to transfer those Ethereum (ETH) to. This address will be the one you setup in Coss.io (Public ETH wallet Address in the previous step).
Enter the amount of Ethereum (ETH) you want to transfer, and follow the on-screen instructions to complete the process.
Please note - if you send your ETH to an incorrect address, these funds are lost forever. So please be very careful.
Wait for the Ethereum (ETH) to be transferred from Coinbase to your Coss.io wallet address. This can take up to a few hours.
Once the transfer is complete, you will be able to view the Ethereum (ETH) in your Coss.io account. The blue bar at the top of your dashboard will show the amount of ETH that you have.
You can also go to https://etherscan.io and paste your wallet’s address in the search bar at the top right of the page. Since all transactions on blockchain are public, you will be able to see the amount of cryptocurrency sent to your wallet.
Now it’s time to purchase ITT tokens. Inside Coss.io, click the “Exchange” tab at the top of the page.
Click the “Markets” button at the top left of the page.
Enter “ITT” in the search bar. Click the “ITT/ETH” option that is displayed.
The “Place Order” panel on the left is where you will enter the details of your order.
Please note that you will be purchasing ITT tokens from other people who have put their tokens up for sale. You will trade your Ethereum (ETH) for ITT tokens.
If you scroll down towards the bottom of the page, you will see a section that shows “Buy Orders” and “Sell Orders”.
This is where you can see the price various people are asking for their ITT tokens. You can also see the price various people want to buy ITT tokens for.
Go back to the panel on the left side of the page. In the “Place Order” box, select “Market Order” for your Order Type (see below for “limit order”). Then type in the amount of ITT tokens you want to purchase.
You will see the amount of ETH you have in your wallet. That is the total amount you have available to trade for ITT tokens.
Below this number, you will see “10%”, “25%”, “50%”, “75%”, and “100%”. If you click on one of these options, the system will automatically show you how many ITT tokens you can purchase with that percentage of your total ETH.
Once you have decided how many ITT tokens you want to purchase, you will see the total price for your order. Since this a “Market Order”, the price per ITT token will be whatever is listed in the “Sell Orders” list towards the bottom of the page.
When you are ready, click the “Buy” button to complete your order. The transaction will process instantly.
Alternate option (Limit Order):
If you select the “Limit Order” order type instead of “Market Order”, then you can choose the price you want to pay per ITT token.
In the “Price per ITT” field, you can type the price you want to pay per ITT token.
This is where you need to pay special attention.
If you choose a price that is equal to or higher than what is listed in the “Sell Orders” box at the bottom of the page, then your trade will complete instantly.
If you choose a price that is lower than what people are selling for, then your order will get added to the “Buy Orders” list and you will have to wait until someone decides to sell their ITT tokens for that lower price.
After your transaction is complete, you can click the “Account” tab at the top of the page to go back to your dashboard.
This is where you can see the total ETH and ITT tokens you have in your wallet. Remember, the totals will be in the blue bar at the top of the page.
You can also see all the coins you have in your wallet by clicking the “Wallet” tab in the sidebar.
Congratulations, you now own ITT tokens.
Please note, we never recommend storing your cryptocurrencies on an exchange.
If you would like to use your newly purchased ITT tokens to buy a premium subscription to our Telegram Bot, then you will need to send those tokens to our wallet address.
Click the “Verification” tab in the left sidebar to setup 2 Factor Authentication on your phone. This is required before sending tokens. We recommend downloading Google Authenticator and then following the on-screen instructions.
After you have 2 Factor Authentication setup, you can click the “Wallet” tab in the left sidebar.
Then click the “Withdraw” icon next to your ITT balance.
In the on-screen prompt, enter the amount of ITT tokens you want to send. Then enter the wallet address you will send to, and click “Submit”.
*The wallet address for the ITF Telegram Bot will be shown to you inside of your Telegram Bot when you use the /subscribe command.
Go to your email address and click the verification link from Coss.io to complete your transfer.
Congratulations, you are done.
If you plan on holding a large sum of ITT tokens, then it is a smart decision to transfer those tokens to a more protected wallet like MetaMask, or even an external hard wallet (e.g. Trezor or Ledger Nano S).
Once you have the new external wallet address, you can follow the same process as in Step 11 to send your coins to this new address (and out of Coss.io).
