Check out the following steps on how to prepare and use the demo kit together with the OwnerChip Discovery app:
STEP 1: Create your Blockchain Identity with Metamask
Installing Metamask might sound complex, but it’s just downloading a free app from the App Store or Google Play Store. Metamask acts as a digital wallet, enabling crypto transactions, but don’t worry, you won’t need actual cryptocurrency for this demo.
Function: You’ll use Metamask to generate a unique wallet address for confirming transactions and holding digital twin NFTs.
Important: During setup, you’ll create a “seed phrase” for wallet recovery. It’s crucial for future security, so keep it safe.
Install Metamask – Available on Apple App Store and Google Play Store.
STEP 2: Install the OwnerChip Discovery App
This app lets you interact with NFC chips for item verification and chip initialization.
Install OwnerChip Discovery – Available on Apple App Store and Google Play Store.
STEP 3: Link OwnerChip and Metamask
Connection: Open OwnerChip Discovery, tap the “connect” icon, and approve the Metamask link.
Tip: Use FaceID or Biometric Authentication in Metamask for smoother operation. If you prefer a password, adjust Metamask’s “Auto-Lock” settings for convenience.
STEP 4: Initialize your NFC chip
Imagine you’re securing your creation with an NFC chip.
In the OwnerChip app, tap “Initialize Chip” and hold your phone close to an NFC chip. Positioning varies by device.
The app will guide you through selecting a blockchain network and adding details to create a digital twin NFT in your wallet.
STEP 5: Verify NFC Chips and Ownership
Pretend you’re verifying the authenticity of a luxury item you purchased.
Use the OwnerChip app to scan the chip. A successful scan indicates authentic and possibly owned items, with details accessible through the app.
STEP 6: Reset Chips and Tokens
While not common in actual use, you might want to reset chips during demos.
Use “Initialize Chip” again to reset an already initialized chip. This action deletes the associated NFT and returns the chip to an uninitialized state.
By following these steps, you can fully experience the capabilities of the demo kit and the OwnerChip Discovery app, from setting up your digital wallet to interacting with NFC chips and managing digital twins on the blockchain.
