Could someone please provide clear step-by-step instructions on how users can claim their XTZ from the fundraiser ? This would be a good reference article for many.


You can also do it via the tezos-client.

Step 1) Get your activation key here: https://tezos.com/get-started/

Step 2 Optional, if you don't have a node set up: https://github.com/tezoscommunity/FAQ/blob/master/Compile_Mainnet.md

Step 3)

 cd into Tezos

./tezos-client add address my_account <public key hash from donation PDF>

./tezos-client activate fundraiser account my_account with <activation key from verification site>

./tezos-client import fundraiser secret key my_account
