Sending Funds to a Colony

How to send and claim an ERC20 token to your colony.

Sending Funds

To send funds to your colony, you need to send them to the colony's address you find in the top-left corner of your Dashboard.
Make sure to only send ERC20 tokens on xDai to your colony.
Do not send ETH or any ERC20 tokens from Ethereum directly to your colony. If your funds are currently on any other chain than xDai, such as Ethereum mainnet, you will first need to bridge them through OmniBridge before sending them to your colony. Otherwise your funds will be lost irreversibly. Before sending a significant amount of funds, it is advisable to send a small amount for testing purposes first. In case of doubt, please reach out on our Discord.

Claiming Funds

Funds sent to a colony address will not appear in the colony's treasury until they are claimed by a member of the colony.
To claim funds, navigate to Events, wait for the token transfers to load, and click "Claim".
Claimed funds will appear in the Root balance, and can be later transferred to any other Team using a motion, or by anyone who has the Funding permission in Root.
