The Ultimate Guide for PolkaSmith Crowdloan

Breaking down every step to join and contribute your KSM to PolkaSmith’s crowdloan.

PolkaSmith is the canary network of PolkaFoundry on Kusama, and PKS is PolkaSmith’s native token. Participants who support us to win the Kusama auction will share a reward pool of 10,500,000 PKS and many extra rewards.

You can contribute to PolkaSmith crowdloan either directly from a supported exchange or by installing one of the Kusama-compatible wallets.

  • Kusama-compatible Wallets: We recommend Fearless Wallet for mobile users and Polkadot.js Browser Extension Wallet for desktop users.

:pushpin: Note: Fearless Wallet integrates crowdloan support, so it is very convenient. However, it would be best to use the Polkadot.js Browser Extension to claim the Red Kite’s ePKF rewards.

  • Exchanges: OKEx, Houbi, and other exchanges that support our crowdloan will be announced shortly.
