For the sake of this example, we will send 1,000,000 DC ($10.00 USD) to OUI 1 with the memo "test".

As you type in the OUI number, you will notice a pop-up. OUI owners can see how many DC are available under their OUI. For instance, there are just over 180 million DC available under OUI 1 for the LoRaWAN network. An email address can also be specified in order to receive the purchase receipt.

A preview is offered for each destination address.

Upon clicking “Continue”, you will be taken to Sphere's crypto payment interface. Hit "Pay" when you have filled in your payment information.
