What Is Cardstarter?

CardStarter is a decentralized accelerator and trading platform that connects early-stage Cardano inventors with our community of contributors via a decentralized accelerator and exchanging platform.

What is an Initial Decentralized Offering (IDO) and how does it work?

Initial Decentralized Offerings, also known as IDOs, are events in which a project introduces a token or coin that represents any form of asset on a decentralized liquidity market, such as a cryptocurrency exchange.

Overview of the IDO participation

  • After a whitelist sale, registered accounts are frozen for a period of seven days. During this time period, any new $CARDS tokens that have been staked are unable to be unstaked. Participants in the lottery who were not picked in the drawings are included in this category.
  • Ethereum gas is required for the Staking and Registration processes (gwei).
  • Please be sure to use the same wallet address for KYC, staking, and registration to avoid confusion.

KYC

  • KYC is performed on a project-by-project basis. Please refer to the particular project miniguide for information on the KYC requirements specific to that project.
  • Users that desire to engage in IDOs are needed to complete the Fractal Know Your Customer (KYC) procedure before doing so.
  • Participants are advised to begin the Know Your Customer (KYC) process as soon as they are able.
  • After the registration window ends, registrants will have a 24-hour grace time to complete the Know Your Customer (KYC) procedure.

Stake $CARDS Tokens

Before registering for an IDO, participants must stake their $CARDS tokens using the https://app.cardstarter.io/ website. Participants who do not stake their tokens will not be eligible for a tier.

Note: In order to participate in the IDO, a minimum of 100 $CARDS tokens will be necessary. Users who stake a lower amount will not be eligible for any levels if they do so.

IDO Registration

To sign up for an upcoming IDO, go to https://pools.cardstarter.io/ and fill out the registration form.


As soon as new projects are announced, they will be presented in the Upcoming IDOs area of the website. Registration will remain CLOSED for the time being at this time.


When the registration window becomes available, the project will be moved to the Live IDOs area of the website.

IDO Event

Every IDO will have a whitelist sale that will last for 24 hours.

Guaranteed allocations will be provided to all participants, including those who are chosen via a lottery.
