This guide's process allows for moving prior, larger purchases of $RLY with potentially lower fees than direct purchasing with a Credit Card, but requires some experience with transacting on Ethereum.
This process is also useful for moving earned $RLY from vaults and liquidity pools to the Rally.io platform.
An amount of Ethereum in the same wallet to cover Ethereum Gas Fees
$20 is a safe amount to cover a few transactions
A Rally.io account
Go to the Rally Bridge-In page on the Rally Vaults subdomain.
Connect your wallet (Metamask, Coinbase, etc.).
Authorize/Allow your wallet to transact with the contract if necessary.
Enter the amount you'd like to "bridge in", as well as your Bridge ID.
Click Deposit, confirm a satisfactory gas price is selected in your wallet, and Accept/Confirm the transaction.
Sign in to rally.io at https://www.rally.io/login.
At the top right select your profile icon, and then click Settings, or go directly to https://www.rally.io/settings.
Find your "Bridge ID" on the left section under your username. Copy this, we will need this later.
Navigate to https://vaults.rally.io/bridge. Connect your wallet with the yellow button at the bottom of the page, or with the standard button at the top right.
Authorize, Allow, or Unlock your wallet to transact with the contract if necessary. This may require a transaction of its own.
You should see your total $RLY holdings. Enter the amount you'd like to deposit or "bridge in". For convenience, you can select varying percentages above the top left of the amount entry blank.
Enter your Rally ID here that we copied earlier.
Double check your Rally ID is entered correctly. Click Deposit when you are satisfied with your entries. Your wallet should prompt you to accept or confirm the transaction. Confirm an adequate gas price is selected, and press Confirm.
That's it! Your transaction can take some time depending on Ethereum network conditions. Please be patient. You should see it in your Portfolio on your Rally.io account soon.
Step 1: Set-Up Your Coinbase Exchange Account → https://www.coinbase.com/
If you already have a Coinbase Account, continue to Step 2.
Setting up your account is a little like creating a PayPal account. You can do it on your phone or a desktop computer, and plan to spend about 15 minutes. If not prompted during set-up, you will also have to come back here to share a pic of your driver’s license before you can send any crypto.
Step 2: Set-Up Your Coinbase Wallet → https://wallet.coinbase.com/
If you already have a Coinbase Wallet setup, continue to Step 3.
Once your Coinbase account is set up, get out your smartphone and download the Coinbase Wallet app. NOTE: The Wallet app is different from the Coinbase Exchange app. The Wallet app is where you should be storing your crypto. Here set-up is super fast, though they will prompt you to take some pretty extreme security measures -- that’s a good thing. Read all the instructions carefully, and have a plan for storing any passwords, etc as you go.
Step 3: Connect your Coinbase Wallet to your Coinbase Account and Buy Some Crypto!
Go to the settings in your Wallet (gear icon, bottom right), and connect your Coinbase account. Once you’ve connected, navigate to the wallet icon (bottom left), and select “Buy or Transfer from Coinbase” to make your crypto purchases or move a balance from Coinbase Exchange.
You should purchase both RLY and ETH -- For RLY, the amount should be equal to the purchase you’d like to make in your coin. (Note, since coin prices are always changing, you should be thinking in terms of USD here.) For ETH --- This is to cover your network gas fees. We estimate that $20 worth should cover you.
Step 4: Connect Your Wallet and Bridge In
Refer to the steps earlier in this article on how to Bridge In, selecting "Coinbase" when prompted.
