Creating an Account
Welcome to Gifted Coin! However you happened to find us, we are soooooo glad you did. The first step to giving to a Gifted project or creating your own is making a Gifted account. It’s painless, we promise! On every page of our site, you’ll see options to Log In or Sign Up in the top right corner.
If you already have a Gifted Coin account, you can log in by clicking the Log In / Sign Up link at the top right of the screen. Then simply log in with Facebook via the blue button or enter your email address and password.
If the window that appears asks you to Sign Up, click the link at the bottom of the form that says, “Already have an account? Log in.” This will take you to the Log In screen.
Make an Account
Creating a Gifted Coin account will take three steps.
- Sign up through your Facebook or email address
- Confirm your account
- Add your profile details
About the Community Values Commitment
During the sign up process, you will be asked to accept the Community Values Commitment. Make sure you take a few moments to look over how that will affect the way you interact with the rest of the Gifted Coin community. The Community Values Commitment comes from our dedication to inspiring responsible crowdfunding in our effort to fight fraud and prevent inauthentic projects or compromised organizations from joining the Gifted Coin community.
