How to Transfer PHT Tokens – Lightstreams — The Blockchain for Speed and Privacy
The following guide illustrates the process of transferring PHT tokens step by step.
The Lightstreams PHT is a native token. It is NOT an ERC-20 token or similar. The Lightstreams network uses the same addressing format as Ethereum network. For this reason, we can use MetaMask (an Ethereum tool) configured to the Lightstreams Network in these instructions.
You are responsible for your tokens

Step 1: Log in to your MetaMask Wallet and click on “Expand View” to open in a new tab. In the event you have forgotten your password, you can restore your MetaMask Wallet using the secret backup phrase you should have saved during the account creation.
Step 2: Click on “Network” to display all available networks and select “Lightstreams” from the available options. (If you have not set up Lightstreams as a Custom Network, then follow steps 1–4 in this article)
Note: You may need to disable and re-activate your MetaMask extension if your send button is blank or you get a white screen after changing or saving the Network. (backup your password and keys). In Chrome: More tools > Extensions. Turn MetaMask extension off (by moving the slider into the off position). Turn MetaMask extension on (by moving the slider into the on position). Sign into MetaMask.
Step 3: Click on the “Send” button.
Step 4: Click “Advanced Options”.
Step 5: Change the Gas Price (Gwei) from 10 to 500. The transaction fee you will pay from your account 0.0105 PHT. Then click “Save”.
Note: This dialog incorrectly shows the units in ETH, however, you will actually be charged in PHT from you account. The gas price is 500 GWEI = 0.0000005 PHT.
Step 6: Enter the following details for sending your PHT tokens (ignore the Send ETH title)
Then click “Next”
Step 7: Click “Confirm”
Step 7: Your transaction should now be confirmed.
Step 8: If you have set the Lightstreams explorer address in the network settings (https://explorer.lightstreams.io), you can view the transaction details by clicking on the confirmed transaction line and then the “View at” arrow.
