how do i buy crypto coins from etherscan

You have to buy ether from another source such as Coinbase and then transfer to etherscan
Sorry I was confused... etherscan is just to view contracts

hey guys, how can I issue my custom tokens to a user? Am I correct to say 1. User watches contract ID. 2. User inputs their own wallet ID and this is saved into MySQL. 3. On event, custom token gets sent to a user
is that it??

Never used it!
Did you create your tokens in Mist?

yes
I am asking the user now to input their wallet ID. Is there a way to check for a valid ID?

@xlcrr MetaMask will let you F12 into a console where you can use web3

i can see where to import it but where is my privkey?
i have my UTC keystore file
Jeffrey Anthony
@jeffanthony
May 21 2017 22:24
that file has your private key encrypted inside it behind a password, you don't have direct access to your privkey that way
also MetaMask uses a mnemonic rather than private key
xlcrr
@xlcrr
May 21 2017 22:25
how can I access the private key? surprised its not available
Jeffrey Anthony
@jeffanthony
May 21 2017 22:25
which one?
xlcrr
@xlcrr
May 21 2017 22:26
mist wallet
Jeffrey Anthony
@jeffanthony
May 21 2017 22:28
I would run it through myetherwallet, that would display your private key unencrypted
the utc
xlcrr
@xlcrr
May 21 2017 22:35
they are looking for a password
had to import that UTC file as json file into metamask and it worked
