Recently, Kleros announced their pilot project — Doges on Trial. If you’re interested in being a juror but don’t know how, this is the article for you.

To become a Kleros juror, you first need some PNK which is their native token. To find out more about PNK read this post. The more tokens you hold and deposit into the system, the more chance you have of being selected as a juror.

Note: This guide assumes you understand how to use Metamask and already own some ETH.

Step 1: Click on the MetaMask (fox) icon and make sure you are on “Main Ethereum Network”.

Step 11: Go to the Open Orders tab and wait for the order to close. Bear in mind, your order may not fill instantly and can take some time depending on what price you placed it at.

Step 12: Go to the Balances Tab again. Select “Withdraw” option for PNK tokens. You’ll get the tokens back to your MetaMask account.

Step 13: To see the PNK tokens in your MetaMask account, click on MetaMask icon -> Select Menu (Three horizontal lines situated at the top left) -> Click on “Add Token” at the bottom.

Note: It’s possible that you can’t deposit right now. Wait for the activation period to start before you can deposit.

Step 21: Congratulations! You have successfully deposited PNK into the Doge pilot. Next step, wait to find out if you are drawn as a juror.

Note: In the current implementation, you have to redeposit every time activation period starts. This will change in future implementation.

If you have any questions feel free to ask them in their telegram group.
