PolkaSmith Kusama Parachain Auction in a Nutshell

This article will be a brief introduction to PolkaSmith plan for Kusama Auction . At the same time, you can find a concise guide about How to join PolkaSmith crowdloan in the later part of the article.

PolkaSmith Auction Plan

We will start by bidding for parachain lease 1st ~ 8th. Understanding that competition for Parachain is intense, if PolkaSmith doesn’t win the first auction, we will keep bidding until we win an auction. In the end, our target is to get a Parchain for the duration of 8-lease period. To achieve that target, we aim to source 30,000 KSM for parachain bids.

PolkaSmith Crowdloan

Contributors to PolkaSmith crowdloan will share a 10,500,000 PKS reward pool, weighted by the amount of KSM contributed plus early bird reward. If we reach the target of raising 30,000 KSM, each KSM locked will get contributors approximately 350 PKS in reward.

Besides, contributors to PolkaSmith crowdloan can earn Red Kite point bonus when contributing through Red Kite. Red Kite point is a unique point on our launchpad, Red Kite. Each Red Kite point is equivalent to 1 PKF staked on Red Kite. Even if you don’t stake any PKF on Red Kite, you can get the same tier benefits.

:pushpin: Note: Red Kite point is only meaningful in Red Kite, it will no longer exist when KSM gets unlocked.

How to Join PolkaSmith Crowdloan

You can use either Polkadot.js Extension Wallet, Fearless Wallet, or contribute directly on OKEx.

Polkadot.js Extension Wallet

First of all, you need to install the Polkadot.js Browser Extension, create a wallet on Kusama Relay Chain, and fund your wallet. If you already have a wallet on Polkadot Relay Chain on Polkadot.js, simply switch the network.

Then, you can choose to join our crowdloan on one of these three platforms:

Option 1: Contribute on Polkadot.js.org

Option 2: Contribute on Red Kite

We highly recommend contributors to PolkaSmith join our crowdloan on Red Kite as the Red Kite point bonus will be automatically applied there.

Fearless Wallet

Fearless is a mobile wallet designed by SORAMITSU for Kusama and Polkadot. Joining crowdloan on Fearless wallet is quite simple, yet it will not allow you to claim the Red Kite point bonus.
