I tried to create a project but the transaction didn’t go through, I got an error message similar to this:


This error is caused when creating a project with an account different than the users NEAR Discovery account that is actively logged in: (e.g. janedoe.near is creating a project for janedoeproject.near)

Your project has its own account. In order to add admins on a project, including yourself, you must log in with the project account id, and visit the link to grant appropriate permissions to yourself and your team. Once completed, log back in with your user account (the account you are using now) to complete the setup process.

I don’t know how to claim a project

Claiming a project can be done in two simple steps:

1. On the project's profile page, click "Claim Project"


2. Complete and submit the form that appears. The Horizon team will review your request and add you as the admin to the project.
