EquaCoin: how to open a Waves account
A brief guide to create a new account on the Waves Platform, to trade, store and manage EquaCoin.
The Swiss company EquaCoin Ag, during the presale, used Waves-Platform in order to collect some funds from early subscribers and supporters.
The EquaCoin token (EQUA) represents EquaCoin on the Waves blockchain. Waves allows people to store and transfer it more efficiently due to Waves’ high speed and low transaction fees. Each EquaCoin token is 1:1 backed by EquaCoin (EQC) held in a secure account on the backed-up blockchain.
Once the new wallet  will be ready, all EquaCoin on Waves-platform  will be redeemable on demand , however in the mean-time, it is possible to trade EquaCoin using the decentralized market DEX .
How to do it in brief
As first, it is needed to feed your wallet with some crypto. If you don’t have Bitcoin (Ether, LiteCoin or Z-Cash), purchase them via your trusted exchange and send them to the wallet.
In order to feed your wallet, Waves-platform proposes a third-party exchange able to process credit/debit card, however that procedure could result much more time consuming respect your trusted supplier.
