How to fund your Vault with $VGT (and get a 50% Discount)

With the latest release of Vault12 Guard, now available in both iOS App Store and Google Play, we have streamlined how you can use VGT tokens to upgrade your Vault or fund your Vault for future use. Right now there is a 50% discount on all plans if you fund your Vault with VGT.

If you have Vault Guardian Tokens (VGT), you can use them to pay a portion of your Vault12 Guard subscription plan. This article explains how to deposit VGT in your wallet, and use it toward your plan upgrade.

Step 1 — Go to

On the Vault12 website, click the "Connect My Vault" button at the top right, or just open your browser and go to

You will then be brought to a webpage with a Vault12 code to scan. Leave this page open, because you will be scanning the code using your Guard mobile app.

Step 5 — Deposit VGT

To upgrade your plan, you'll require a minimum of the "Total Due" in your wallet balance. To deposit VGT, you can use Metamask or your third-party wallet to send VGT directly to the Deposit Address shown.

If you don't have the required funds in your wallet, the "Confirm and Pay" button will be disabled.

If you have enough funds in your wallet, the "Confirm and Pay" button will be active. You may now select the "Confirm and Pay" button, and payment processing will begin.

Depending on network speeds, processing may take a few minutes. The screen will automatically refresh when processing is complete.
