Q1 - How can I participate in the pre-sale?

A1 - There is currently no pre-sale open to the public, although we are scoping out a private treasury round for institutions. If you are with a fund or an accredited investor and would like to participate, please fill out our inbound form. Our first token distribution event will be a Kusama crowdloan which acts similar to an airdrop except that you need to lock up your Kusama for a period of 48 weeks. There will be a ratio of tokens you will receive for each KSM. Register for the whitelist here.

Q7 - Are you guys partnered with Meta or have contracts or association with Meta?

A7 - We are not affiliated, associated, authorized, endorsed by, or in any way officially connected with Meta( Facebook), the Diem Association or any of its subsidiaries or its affiliates. We are building with their open source technology and closely follow their developments.

Q8 - Do you guys plan on participating in the DOT Auctions too?

A8 - Yes, We will first launch on Kusama and after success we will participate in the DOT Crowdloans as well. Our Kusama and Polkadot networks will be complementary to each other and each have their own use cases.

A9 - Yes, The team will be presenting a step by step guide to help the end users contribute to the Kusama crowdloans.

Q10 - Will there be an announcement for when to unbond our KSM or DOT?

A10 - Yes, we will make sure our community has enough time to unbond their KSM prior to the crowdloan starting so they can get early bird bonus rewards for their contributions

Q10 - What will happen if Diem fails and does not launch?

A10 - This is a real risk for our business model which users should be aware of and our partners and investors understand. However, we are fairly confident Diem will get regulatory approval to launch as Facebook shifts focus to financial services through Novi in their Metaverse strategy. If for any reason Diem is not going to launch we will assess our options for how to best use the technology we’ve developed.

Q11 - Will there be any incentives for the testnet?
