Update on PolkaFoundry’s launch IDO on Ignition

UPDATE on the PolkaFoundry IDO on Ignition:

PAID Network and PolkaFoundry have mutually agreed to have the PolkaFoundry IDO take place on Duckstarter, where a special pool for PAID whitelisters will be featured (all Ignition whitelisters for PolkaFoundry will be automatically added to this pool on DuckSTARTER, however in order to buy on DuckDAO, all whitelisters must register an account there and KYC, if you don’t already have one). This decision was found to be in the best interest of our communities.

PAID Network and Polkafoundry remain committed to each other as strategic partners and have full intentions of collaborating with one another moving forward. We wish the best of luck to all our PAID whitelisters, on the upcoming PolkaFoundry IDO, and the best of luck to our partner PolkaFoundry.

PAID Ignition is coming in strong, just over a month since it was announced, the PAID IDO platform presents yet another top tier project that has committed to launch an exclusive Ignition IDO, PolkaFoundry. PolkaFoundry is the one-stop production hub for DeFi on Polkadot through allowing users to create borderless and frictionless DeFI applications. The IDO will commence on March 16, 2021, at 2pm GMT.

We are excited to announce you can now whitelist for PolkaFoundry’s IDO Whitelist HERE, and don’t wait! We close their whitelist Sunday, March 7th at 2pm GMT.

Another exclusive IDO launch on Ignition

PolkaFoundry is now joining the likes of Splyt and Shadows as top tier projects who committed to do their IDO’s on Ignition. Shadows had a very successful whitelist lottery turnout, with over 20k lottery tickets randomly selected to qualified whitelisters, and a massively successful launch and IDO in Ignition and UniSwap.

New Ways to get involved with PAID

The PAID Network prides itself on listening to its wonderful community. One thing that we heard requested a lot, was greater access to whitelist lotteries for all PAID holders.

We have delivered.

Now, holders will be given one entry to the whitelist lottery for every 1000 $PAID tokens they have in their wallets. This is going to provide more opportunities for our members and will help create the kind of community we’ve been working so hard for. For more information on these new rules just click here.

Update for $PAID tokens staked on other platforms

At this time we will not consider $PAID tokens that are staked on any platform towards Polkafoundry’s IDO on Ignition. We are actively working towards integration possibilities, and we will update PAID’s community as soon as we have a definitive solution.

For the time being, if you wish to participate in PolkaFoundry’s IDO you need to unstake your tokens and have them in the MetaMask wallet you shared with us in your whitelist application for snapshot. We will verify this when we close PolkaFoundry’s whitelist this Sunday, March 7 at 2pm GMT, as well as when you join your indicated pool on PolkaFoundry’s IDO launch day, March 10 at 2pm GMT.

We understand there is an issue with restaking from the same wallet on Launchpool, so if you choose to move and restake between snapshot and PolkaFoundry’s Ignition pools opening (and therefore wish to change your whitelisted address), you must do this a minimum of 24 hours before the pool opens by submitting a help ticket at help.paidnetwork.com using the “change wallet” category.
