My Crates Page

When you first land on the dashboard you will be on the My Crates page. Click the "Create a crate" button to create your first crate.

Empty My Crates Page

Once you click the button a transaction pop up will appear. Creating Crates on Cargo is free, but you will need to pay the Ethereum gas price to process this transaction on the Ethereum blockchain. It's usually only a few cents.

Create a Crate Transaction Popup

Click the confirm button to confirm the transaction. You will get a confirmation message that your transaction has been submitted.

Transactions are not yet mined instantly on the Ethereum blockchain, so it will take a short amount of time to process your transaction. Cargo will notify you with another notification message when your transaction is confirmed. When the transaction is confirmed you will see your crate appear on the My Crates page. You can enter your crate by clicking the blue arrow next to the crate number.
